Yesterday, the Columbia County Department of Health reported three new cases of COVID-19. Today, a memo from Columbia County Board of Supervisors chair Matt Murell contains this quote from CCDOH director Jack Mabb:
This follows a prolonged stretch of zero or one new daily cases, then we get three new cases in one day. It's a reminder that the virus has not gone away. . . . These were all random community cases. One was a third grader, one 18 years old, and another age 60.
Here's a sobering fact: the 60-year-old had received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. There was no information about whether or not any of the new cases were cases of the Delta variant.
