As the number of new COVID-19 cases in the county ebbs and many health mandates have been lifted, Gettysburg Connection will stop updating its coronavirus page as of Friday June 4.
This page has been visited over 70,000 times since March 2020 and has been the #1 hit on Google for Adams County Coronavirus information.
The situation in the county currently is stable, but still potentially precarious.
The total number of cases since the pandemic began currently stands at 9,558 with 183 deaths attributed to the virus.
There were only 140 new cases over the last two weeks, and the positivity rate stands currently at five percent, which is at or below the threshold for concerns about widespread community transmission.
But Adams is below the state average on vaccination rate, at about 41 percent in comparison to the state average of 54 percent.
There were no masks in sight at the Memorial Day parade, and although it was outside people were very close together. Unvaccinated people are still susceptible to catching and spreading COVID-19.
Health agencies are still asking people to be cautious – new virus cases dipped last summer as well and then rebounded in the fall.
