The United States is still not showing any signs of revival from the Coronavirus. Nobles County in Minnesota, just reported 16 new Coronavirus cases, adding the total to 18. The Minnesota Department of Health is currently handling the situation. Tom Johnson, the administrator of Nobles County, released the information in an email.
But the rigorous testing along with maintaining social distancing helped keep the number of cases low. The age range of the patients is between 28 and 80. No additional details are available. Administrator Johnson says the County will no longer state the positive Coronavirus cases because the MDH already does this every day. New and fresh counts are available on the website from 11 A.M.

This will relieve the county from a lot of documentation work, which helps them concentrate on medical duties. But moreover, this will help control the panic situation. This is a time when people need to unite by distancing amongst themselves.
Nobles County releases strategies to avoid COVID-19
Johnson says, “we will surely defeat the Coronavirus using social distancing as the weapon.” The administration has noticed that many individuals are not going by the standards of social-distancing. The County administrator is urging people to self-quarantine if they have any COVID-19 symptoms.
The Minnesota Department of Health has released a few strategies to help avoid COVID-19 transmission.
