Last week in Washington County saw one of the largest increases in confirmed positive coronavirus cases since pandemic testing and data tracking began at the end of March.

According to the city of Brenham and Washington County’s Joint Information Center, at least 66 new cases were confirmed last week, 40 of them having been confirmed Saturday and Monday. Of the new cases, all are at home recovering while only one — a Brenham man between 70-79 years old — remains hospitalized. Of the new cases, many are younger than age 60. The data show 38 of the 66 newest cases are less than 60 years old. At least two of the newest cases are very young, or less than nine years of age.

This is simply stating the information anyone can get from Washington County EMS site. Where are the cases coming from ? We have contact tracers- what do they have to say about this new uptick?

Are you going to mention the fact that for the first time we have CHILDREN with cases ? Or that they all cane from a daycare?

That is the information your readers need. Many watch the numbers - we need to know who the cases are and where they come from.
