Whenever Mendocino County Public Health publishes a new COVID-19 infographic, MendoFever will compare and contrast the data with the previous infographic in hopes to shed light on trends associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in Mendocino County. 

🗣Most significant information gained from this evening’s infographic update provided by Mendocino County Public Health:
📍 50% of today’s cases are 18 years old or younger.
📍 80% of today’s cases originated from close contact with an infected individual.
📍Seven more individuals have been added to isolation due to either infection or exposure to an infected individual.

Mendocino County Public Health’s COVID-19 Infographic from July 20, 2020

  1. When you talk about “Source of Infection:” “Community Spread.” Could you be more specific, please?!? Does that connote people working together in the same facility or people shopping in a certain store or place of business? It would be helpful to know “WHERE” the “Community Spread” cases are originating! i.e., “restaurant”” ‘grocery store’? ‘public building’? WHERE? Those places need to be avoided until they rectify the reason the virus was in their ‘building.’ THANK YOU!

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
