State Dept. of Health Update of Tuesday, May 12, 2020


One New Case of COVID-19

There is one (1) new case reported today by the DOH. This is an out-of-state resident who was screened at the airport and subsequently tested positive. Complacency is a serious concern as reports of fewer cases inadvertently signals less urgency.

Informal gatherings are being observed and people are doing less social distancing and everyone is not wearing a mask. Any success we are seeing now will backslide if everyone in our communities does not comply with stay at home, social distancing, mask-wearing, and other measures to keep the spread of coronavirus controlled.


State legislators are urged to remind their constituents that maintaining community efforts and sacrifices will allow us to reopen the state.


Not complying will likely create a second wave of COVID-19 and delay reopening businesses and resumption of travel.
