COVID-19 Staff Bulletin - July 20, 2020

“The number of new cases reported in the last three days is concerning. We’re starting to see an upward bend in our curve. We do have a possibility of having explosive growth in our outbreak if we’re not careful with how we progress over the summer.  It is still in our hands to make a difference bending this curve.” -- Dr. Bonnie Henry
