Three Rivers Health District COVID 19 Update   8/3/2020

In Three Rivers, case counts have stabilized at about three times the weekly new case rate we had in phase two.  We had 64 new cases in the district last week, and the same number the week before.  Looking at our case investigation information thus far, it appears most of our new cases are due to social gatherings in private settings and smaller, non-commercial venues.  We are not able to identify any clear sources of community spread in specific retail or food businesses.  Remember:  If we all mask in public, practice social distancing, stay out of crowds, wash our hands, and practice good sanitation, we can drive community levels of this virus to low levels and resume all activities far more safely.
