  1. We need to remember that the number of new cases should higher than they were earlier in the year because more tests are being processed. This increased testing will improve our public health officials ability to evaluate the distribution of the virus and how to deal with it. The more important numbers related to the severity of the disease is the number of hospitalizations and deaths. Both of these appear to be leveling off and some weeks declining.
    As we in health care prepare for the flu season it is important for all of us to remember to wash our hands often, always use a mask in public and remember to maintain correct distance ( more is better) when in groups. These steps will enable us to open up businesses, churches and other areas important for mental health. Also remember to get all available vaccines. This pandemic is controllable but is a team effort.
