Oct. 15: New Testing Site, Community and COVID, Flu Shots
Oct. 15, 2020
Today’s update includes information about a new COVID-19 testing site in Moorhead, a reminder of the flu shot clinic, and an update on our community and COVID.
Community COVID Cases
The COVID-19 case numbers in Cass and Clay counties have been rising considerably in the past weeks. Today alone, Cass county reported 93 new cases and Clay reported 35. Yesterday Cass county reported 216 new cases. While our Concordia community numbers have been relatively low the last few weeks, we are concerned about the broader community and the spread of the virus. Please remember to follow all protocols for masking and distancing, especially with weekend activities.
