    On April 13th, we had a total of 18 confirmed cases in Allegany County. Today, eleven days later, we are at 95.

    Yes, a sizable portion of these new cases came from a nursing home, That doesn’t change the numbers.

    With our case load climbing, a discussion as to how we reopen our county needs to happen.

    The president’s guidelines insist that we should see a Downward trajectory over a 14-day period of a number of traceable factors before we open.
