We’re providing these figures as a public service because we believe in transparency and providing our neighbors with the information they need.

It’s vital that we continue to do all we can to limit the spread of the virus. Continue to practice hand hygiene, wear a mask, avoid group gatherings and follow the CDC and WHO for the latest information on COVID-19. Together, we make this a safer community for our friends and loved ones.
