  1. One reason the cases in Howard County are spiking is because of Columbia Mall is not following covid 19 restrictions. On Friday, November 28th and Saturday, November 29th the Mall was packed with people. May of these people were not wearing face coverings properly indoors and outdoors. Unless the Columbia Mall and other malls like Columbia begin to lower the amount of people in the mall the number of Covid casses will rise drastically between on and the end of the year.


    • Since the pandemic began….feel free to look at the data in the Google Spreadsheet….doing what I can to track the data provided.


  2. Wow 8066 out of well over 330,800 people. Let me know when 30,000 people have tested positive, at least that would be close to 10% of the population.
