500 cases in 4 days, 170 cases in a single day (Nov. 18).

"The number of cases that we’re seeing in Blount County continues to increase at a more rapid rate than that of our state and nation,” BMH Chief Medical Officer Dr. Harold Naramore emailed. “We’re seeing that the virus is now spreading quickly among family members and other close contacts. As the weather cools and people are letting their guard down — and their masks — around family and close friends.”

Good grief. Why is it some people just don't get it?

Wear a mask, socially distance, don't congregate.
