Benton County has topped more than 1,000 cases of COVID-19 since March. See the table below for all of the numbers.
(The governor has just issued a new proclamation limiting social gatherings Indoors as well as other restrictions. This will be posted as soon as it is available.)
Please remember that masks only stop droplets aka moisture carrying the virus. They do not stop the spread of the virus alone. The virus is so small it will travel through the mask, please don't get overly confident just because you are wearing a mask. A properly worn mask, will help to reduce droplets leaving the mouth which will help reduce the transmission.
If you are sick, please stay home. If you think it's just a cold, get tested. A mask won't stop you from spreading the virus.
