COVID-19 Update - March 19th

COVID-19 in Calhoun County


Throughout the month of March, the county has continued to see a decreased number of new cases per week, hospitalizations, and positivity rate. This is a great sign, but does not allow us to let down our guard as a community. We need to continue practicing the recommendations of the CDC to help keep the spread of COVID-19 to a minimum.


  • Wear Your mask.

  • Keep your distance.

  • Together we can make a difference.
