Explaining the COVID Spike

So far this week, the Columbia County Department of Health has reported 53 new cases of COVID-19. An explanation for these increased numbers came today in a press release from Matt Murell, chair of the Columbia County Board of Supervisors.
Director Mabb said Wednesday that the recent rise in the county's infection rate can be primarily attributed to a pair of family clusters and an outbreak at the Brookwood Secure Center in Claverack. "This is not the result of a wide community spread," he said.
