Listening to Governor Cuomo, NY state continues to have a good handle on COVID-19 for now. The rate of postive tests in the Finger Lakes Region continues to drift downward. The number of positive tests has dropped from 2.6% to 2.5% over the past month. A seemingly small drop, but certainly not an increase as we begin to resume more “normal” activities. Overall, the number of deaths in the US has exceeded those as a result of WW I. Nationwide, the number of new cases and deaths continues to rise, especially in states that reopened without any specific plan.
We have been “on pause” for 95 days. With school now “officially out,” and a strong desire to do more, please be careful. Welcome to summer 2020.
