Good Afternoon everyone, After doing some changes we are letting everyone know that we will be putting the numbers of COVID-19 cases up once again.

I will be trying to put the numbers up at least 2 times a week. We understand that it is hard for our community, county, businesses and schools. We will get through this together.

We ask that you are patient, as each new case involves tracing, calls, and paperwork that must be done. Which has to be done in a very limited time frame. On top of our normal business duties that are involved in our day to day business.
