COVID on the Decline


Horizon Public Health has noted a consistent and significant trend downward in the number of active cases of COVID-19 for the past three weeks in our area. Horizon Public Health says as of March 4th, “county transmission rates are low” in Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens, and Traverse Counties.

Hospital admissions from January to February are following that trend, as well as improved hospital capacity to get patients admitted locally or transferred to an appropriate level of care.”
