Knox County Health Department Director, Dr. Martha Buchanan, says the COVID-19 benchmarks they follow show a downward trend of the virus in our area. The benchmarks include a downward trend in active cases, hospitalizations, and new cases. Even though the numbers are trending downward, Dr. Buchanan cautions against letting your guard down too soon.
“I trust people to use common sense and don’t get too excited about the numbers. The numbers tell a story of where we are and they are very important but they could change at any time.
