During 2020 and into the early months of 2021, every Thursday, the EMA hosted a conference call with the health department, hospital, and other stakeholders to discuss active cases, recovered, deaths, best practices, resources, and updated information about COVID-19. We kept a log of those calls now and you can find the available logs below. If you have questions you would like us to ask or topics to bring up, feel free to use our Contact page.

*Active numbers are updated by gathering data from county health department Facebook/website posts. We update the graphic Monday-Friday if possible. At the bottom of this page you will find individual links to each of our sources. Map photos are listed from newest to oldest.
*Note: several health departments in the region have gone to weekly instead of daily reporting due to workload.
*We will be discontinuing the area map as of February 28, 2021. If cases spike again, we will resume our area map reports.
