Cases of coronavirus climb; two positive tests in Yucca Valley.

Stacey Moore wrote in an article in today's Desert Star, that there were no cases of Covid-19 listed in Twentynine Palms, or on the Base. She added, though, that "Cases in unincorporated communities like Joshua Tree, Morongo Valley and Landers are not listed by the county."

Since as many as 1 in 6 people in California live in unincorporated communities, it will be essential that our positive results and our deaths are counted among all the others. We will need to know what is going on in our communities.

We must also continue to live as if the virus is already in our community, and it very well may be. So keep washing your hands and maintaining your distance. If you're the type of person who prays, keep it up.
