    The numbers on this site do not add up. Does anyone make sure the information we are receiving is accurate? Total cases 38, but by age shows 33. Hospitalizations 3, but by county only one. This is deadly serious. Why is our health department not dependable?

    Is anyone paying attention to the numbers? Can someone please update this website to coincide with what the State is actually reporting? Hello? Are you there?

    We now have 79 cases. 28 in Sanpete county. Very few people wearing masks, some restaurants have zero compliance to stop transmissions. The City Cafe in Ephraim is a prime example. We’re in for a hard ride if we don’t take personal responsibility. Your mask saves me and all your customers and friends. Show you care. Wear one.

    June 1st, 38 cases. 2 weeks later, 79. More than double in 2 weeks. Masks, masks, masks.
