I added two counties to the county positivity graph because their recent experience warrants it. Ward and Williams counties have high levels to say the least. Ward is currently at 25% positivity while the experience in Williams is similar to the three large counties at around 15%.
This level and the track of positivity in Ward are quite concerning. When Governor Burgum mentioned exponential increase in one of his first briefings about COVID-19 this is the picture he said we needed to stay away from and “flatten the curve.”
