COVID-19 numbers on a decline in Coffee County

News

COFFEE COUNTY — Coffee County COVID-19 numbers have gone down a little bit in the last few days.

In the past two weeks, the county has had 143 cases, which averages to about 10.2 cases per day.

EMA Director James Brown explained why the county could be seeing fewer cases.

“Maybe the big bump that we had was from the fourth of July holiday and now people are past that two to three weeks when they would have gotten it. So maybe the drop is due to that. We don’t really know. We do know there’s a drop and we do still encourage everybody to do their part to wear their mask, to social distance,” Brown said.

Coffee County has five deaths and over 700 confirmed cases.
