As of July 1, according to the Gallatin County COVID-19 Dashboard, the number of reported COVID-19 cases per day in Gallatin County had slowly fallen to 1.4. On July 14 it had risen to 5.3, a rate almost four times as high.

This epidemic is not over and I plead with those of you who have not received the vaccine to please do so. The vaccine is proving to be one of the safest and most effective ever produced. Also, continue to use good judgment and use masks and social distancing in those situations where it is appropriate. Please do your part to prevent yourself and others from getting this very dangerous disease.

Stephen Guggenheim, M.D.
