CMC/Covenant Dashboard
A statement from Covenant Health:
“With COVID-19 case numbers decreasing in our area, Covenant Health has determined that daily COVID reports from our health system and member hospitals are no longer necessary.

If case numbers increase in the future, we will relaunch the reports as needed for public information. We encourage our communities to help continue the downward trend in case numbers by getting the COVID-19 vaccine if you have not already done so, and by observing other safe practices such as hand washing, masking, social distancing and staying home if you are ill. In addition, we strongly encourage everyone over the age of 6 months to get a flu shot. Thank you for taking these steps to protect your health and the health of others.”

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.  If you are interested in hearing my thoughts and views on news, events, and activities in Cumberland County, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
