Thanks to those that were able to join in person for the urgent update. The Mayor attended a state-wide call last night with health officials. The COVID-19 updates will be released tomorrow and they show a significant increase in positivity rates. I will include some of the stats at the bottom of the email.
The Mayor is urging us to be a united front to require masks in our storefronts. If the positivity rate continues to escalate, we will have to close businesses again.
Wabash Marketplace will assist with Downtown Wabash. If you need supplies, we will bring around signage, disposable masks, and hand sanitizer. The goal is to deliver this afternoon and tomorrow.
Here is are some recommendations for Downtown Wabash:
March 27-September 30: 276 cases, 7 deaths
October 1-November 10: 541 cases, 8 deaths
I know that 2020 keeps delivering bad news. But we're resilient and we will find our way together!
