July 8, 2020—The Wednesday numbers are out, and unfortunately, the data reflects that there are two new cases of Covid-19 in Luther, after several weeks of having zero active cases. These numbers represent our fellow neighbors, of course, so we sincerely wish them a speedy recovery, and hope they might reach out if there are any needs we could meet.
Thank you for the feedback. When sharing this ongoing numbers story Tuesday on Facebook, a question was asked whether this data, obtained from the coronavirus.health.ok.gov website, was valuable to you, dear readers. We share what is on the website that everyone can view, the Luther Register digs a little deeper and culls out local data in our area. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and also brought some suggestions to include more data from the places we go in Eastern Oklahoma County and along the Deep Fork District of OK66. We are also adding the “73054” Luther area zipcode that might grab some different data from those of us who live in unincorporated areas.
Locally, we are now tracking 16 communities and the big cities for comparison. Thank you for your feedback. It is always welcome, and your ideas are helpful.
