Firstly, some breaking news if you haven’t heard: The Fresno Board of Supervisors had to go into quarantine just yesterday, alongside 30 employees, when an employee tested positive for COVID-19. Anyways Since my last update here at Fresnolandia and Gay Central Valley, Fresno has trended in the wrong direction. Fresno entered the purple category again just about 2 weeks ago on October 20th. For comparison sake, on September 18-25, Fresno only had a 3.3% positivity rate in new cases. However, From October 15-22, Fresno had a 5.5% positivity rate in new cases, which equates to a 66% increase in cases. As of right now, the numbers for positivity rate in new cases are lower, but not low enough, hovering at 5%. Despite these numbers, we’re still operating in tier 2 (red category), so long as the numbers don’t get too high and don’t remain that way 2 weeks in a row.
