Active cases slowly fall, 63 new COVID-19 cases confirms Brazos County Health District

The community-wide test positivity rate remains steady at 10% in Brazos County. The 18-24 year old age group accounts for 78 percent of the new confirmed cases. We continue to enjoy a low case fatality rate of 1%. Masking has likely been the key to opening the economy while being safe. We are far more mobile about town now than we were in May. A mask is a low cost solution. We can go about town and do about everything we need. Indeed, a mask is cheaper than a vaccine and may actually be more effective than a vaccine (we shall see). The next community challenge may be with the holiday season as young adults return home to their parents and grandparents for turkey day and Christmas cheer.
