Thankfully, the number of new daily cases in the state of Michigan have been going down consistently over the last two weeks.  Get more info on that story by clicking here.  These numbers are a hopeful sign.  However, we are not out of the woods yet.  When you jump out of an airplane you don't remove your parachute half way down because things are going well.  Widespread testing and social distancing are still two very important actions that will help us here in Kalamazoo County keep our friends and family safe and healthy during this pandemic.
