Thanks for reporting the number of patients (3) currently in the hospital(s). It would also be great to know how many active cases are in the county. The total reported at 119 on 5/26/20 gives a misleading idea of what is really going on. A few months into this thing and based on the number of new cases reported in the last few weeks, I’m guessing there are less than 20 currently sick with CV.
