COVID Tracking Project Gives a Daily ( Update Between 6 and 7:30 p.m. EST)

Health Editor’s Note: Here is a good place to keep track of the daily numbers for COVID-19 including case numbers, deaths, hospitalizations. Sadly these numbers continue to grow by leaps and bounds.  Practice all safety measured until we can receive the vaccine.

  • Stay at least 6 or more feet from anyone you do not live with when outside your home.
  • Wear a mask, over nose and mouth, into any building.
  • Never touch your face, mouth, nose, or eyes without first thoroughly washing your hands.
  • Wash you hands frequently, especially after being in public places.  If it is not convenient to use soap and water, use alcohol hand gel with at least 70% alcohol.
  • Stay away from groups of any size.
  • Stay home if you are ill.
  • Stay away from anyone who is ill.
  • Stay at home unless you need essentials or medical care.
  • Plan to not visit relatives or friend during the upcoming holidays as long as the coronavirus numbers are surging. Remember a holiday is just a date on a calendar but death (and people of all ages are dying of COVID-19) is permanent. Do not be the person who brings coronavirus to others.
  • Use Zoom, Skype, Face Time, phone, texting to stay in touch with relatives and friends. While we should stay physically away from others, there is not need to distance your self emotionally.
  • Do get out in the fresh air and walk, run, walk the dog, jog, bike, etc. but always stay physically distanced.
  • Even after vaccines become available, practice all the measures above until the greater percentage of the population has received the vaccine…..Carol

  1. Thank you for the advice and the link. I wear two masks. It was strange at first but now it feels normal. Not sure if that makes any difference or not but it makes me feel better.

    It’s truly tragic that most states are not fining people who are not wearing masks. A sizable percentage of the population are just not going to take personal responsibility. There needs to be the threat of monetary fines or arrest. Because state governments and feds have been unwilling to do that is a key reason that covid is raging through the country when it could have been crushed. In my mind, this was an intentional decision by the feds and the states.

    I recall seeing videos from Wuhan in Jan 2020 – with everyone wearing masks! People who did not comply were tackled handcuffed and taken to public security holding cells. Why were people in the US not told and required to wear masks in Jan/Feb 2020? In Wuhan there was no debating or hand wringing. Wuhan went on to crush the virus – the Chinese economy is going full throttle.

    • Wat Tyler 1381, Two masks…not a bad idea. You are correct, it no longer feels strange to put on a mask. To give others coronavirus is not a civil right. We can act safely and responsibly and save others. Other countries give out fines. Some in the U.S. focus on all the wrong things…
