COVID numbers continue to fall in county

As the next wave of local students heads back to brick-and-mortar classrooms this week, Linn County's COVID numbers continue to drop.

During the week of Feb. 7 - Feb. 13 saw 88 new COVID cases reported in Linn County. By comparison, the county reported 211 cases of COVID during the two-week period from Jan. 24 to Feb. 6. That means the county is on pace to report 35 fewer cases of COVID during this two- week period compared to the last one.

If next week's data were to replicate this week's numbers, that would put Linn County at 131 cases of COVID per 100,000 people for the two-week period....
