    Stephenson Co. has a total of (4), count ’em 4 cases currently, and they’re putting up tents???? I could think of a whole lot of better use of employee time! Meanwhile, the so-called curve is flattening and heading downward in most “hot-spots”, while more rural locales have near negligible outbreaks. What’s up with the tents???
