Slower COVID-19 spread in county still too high
Last updated 11/23/2020 at 12:27pm
Hill County Public Health Director and Health Officer Kim Larson said the county has seen improvement in its rate of new COVID-19 cases, but it is still far above the Hill County Health Department's goal.
The week of Nov. 9 saw an average of 97 new cases per day per 100,000 residents in the county, Larson said during the weekly COVID-19 update Friday, and it was exciting to see the number under 100.
However, Larson said, the health department's goal is 50 per day per 100,000 and the average for first four days of last week was 113 per day per 100,000.
People need to keep working to slow...
