    Assuming all extended care facilities and hospitals are evaluating risk levels efficiently, I would recommend all parties call them and ask, ‘are you allowing visitors into patient rooms?’ If the answer is yes then the transmission risks must be low. If the answer is no, then the risks remain high and everyone should remain hunkered down.

    Hi Dennis,
    I think it’s because the testing people are overwhelmed.Doctors are being forced to wait for emergency surgeries to get the results back. I don’t know what happens if the suffering person comes back positive?

    I really miss seeing the parantheticals on the headline that reflected plus or minus on the numbers of positives and deaths. Having those displayed in the headline were super efficient and helpful.

      Scott, thanks for the comment. We do put pluses and minuses in the headline for positive and deaths. There are days when there are no changes in the numbers, and because we update daily, there is no plus or minus from the day before. With Inyo County numbers, we can go three days without any change simply because they do not post daily, but only Monday afternoon until Friday afternoon, with nothing between Friday afternoon and the following Monday afternoon. The problem is, that by comparison to Mono County’s always current numbers regardless of what time or day you access their website, Inyo County’s reporting seems “lacking,”
      Thanks again for the comment…we getcha’!

    The information for Mono has not changed for several days. Hmmmm???

    • Charles James September 10, 2020 at 10:10 am #

      That is simply not the case.
      Positive Test Results and #Deaths have remained unchanged for a few days, which is a very good thing, but the numbers of Total Tests Administered, #Tests Pending,and the Total number of Negative Tests change daily. Sierra Wave posts the changes on our website every day for both Inyo and Mono counties.

      For more information,please visit Mono Countys COVID-19 Response web page.

      Look for Case Stats (very bottom of page on left side.)

        Mono’s positive and Death haven’t changed since Aug. 19th!! That’s more than a “few” days – we need to go to the next level!
