Testing data represents the number of people tested by the diagnostic test that detects the virus in the nose or throat (and not a blood test that detects antibodies). Multiple tests per person are not included in these summary statistics.

With more ❄️ snow ❄️ arriving tomorrow, piling on top of what we received over the weekend, it is even more critical that you clear the area around nearby fire hydrants if you haven't already done so! Consider helping elderly friends, neighbors, or those with medical conditions to keep their fire hydrants clear. (It looks like a great day to get outside for a few minutes of exercise, anyways!)

When snow hides fire hydrants, firefighters have to locate and shovel out the hydrants before hooking up to them in an emergency situation, and precious time is lost.

We ask that you please clear an area 3 feet on all sides of the hydrant closest to your home or business. When shoveling snow, please be aware of vehicle traffic, and take care not to slip and fall in the roadway! We want everyone to stay safe this winter.
