Why can I find out more about what is happening regarding Covid 19 in the counties and TOWNS of other states such as NH, PA, and WI than I can in my own back yard in Jefferson County. Why do we put up with this and elect these control personalities time and time again?


Since there are so few active cases in Jefferson County it would be helpful to learn how the new cases got exposed. Without violating privacy, one could let us know if the new cases came from outside the county or from contact with known cases tracing missed. What are the quarantine requirements for travelers from outside the county, such as seasonal residents?
