COVID REPORT: Two More Granada Residents Have Died and 64 New Cases Have Been Confirmed Since Saturday


Correction from the JIC:

Today’s case count cumulative total overstated positive COVID-19 cases by one. A person who was added to the count last week was found to be a resident of another county and has now been removed. Today’s case count remains at 64, and the cumulative total is now 1,647. The Joint Information Center regrets the error.
