Wright County Public Health has released its new COVID-19 dashboard and, as expected, the surge in cases, hospitalizations and deaths are on a sharp climb in Wright County.
For the last several months, Wright County Public Health has been releasing its weekly dashboards on Thursday afternoons. But, because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the dashboard for this week was postponed until today. As anticipated, the numbers continue to climb at an alarming rate.
