VIRUS: More info wanted

| May 29, 2020 1:00 AM

It was interesting to know that Kootenai County had two new COVID-19 cases Tuesday, but it would have been more helpful if we had more information, such as were the two cases related, what part of the county were they from, were they workers in a public facility such as a restaurant or retail store, and if so, did that facility’s workers wear masks and regularly disinfect the facility, did they attend a public event recently, do they regularly wear masks and practice social distancing, did they come from another area to Kootenai County, and has there been any contact tracing to find other people who may have been exposed from them?

This kind of information would help those of us who are trying to keep safe.
