    Up to 90 cases. 1215 people tested. Low percentage of positives. Good thing I guess.

    Is it an emergency news conference if it was announced 20 some hours in advance?

    Exactly this is what I’m so frustrated with. We have people who need hit over the head with a bag of rocks to socially distance and we have people fear mongering

    The number of negative tests has been interesting. I wonder how we balance the need for testing with also telling people not to freak out if they have cold-like symptoms

    Wasn’t the increase yesterday also 22? Could be good news hopefully. Or just an anomaly.

    I wonder if a lot of that testing is contact tracing people who were in contact with known corona virus carriers or travelers in corona virus areas.

    It would matter if testing has also increased. Has it?
