As the rise in coronavirus cases continues in Liberty County 18 more cases have been confirmed. With that Liberty County now has 569 confirmed cases with 284 recoveries. The Liberty County Office of Emergency Management reports these new cases range in age from under 10 to over 80. Six of the new cases are from North Liberty County, while twelve are from the south end. With the addition of these 18, the county now has 127 new cases just this week. All new cases are being treated at home unless otherwise noted.  Since the start of the pandemic in March, there have been three deaths attributed to COVID-19 symptoms. Those three deaths were all in the first month of the pandemic. We know it is repeated quite often but public health experts urge all citizens to practice social distancing, wear a face covering, wash hands frequently, and sneeze or cough into the elbow. Experts also say if someone has a fever above 100 degrees, they should stay home. Again, on Thursday, the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management reported 18 new cases of COVID-19. That brings the number of COVID-19 cases in Liberty Co. overall to 569 and 127 are this week.   ************************************************************************

************************************************************************ For the last 30 years, the Liberty Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce has held the Liberty-Dayton 500 Auction to raise money for chamber operations and with that keep the annual Chamber of Commerce dues as low as possible for members.  However, this year because of COVID-19, the Chamber is replacing the popular 500 with an online auction.
