Lake County Indiana Covid-19 Update

Here’s the new COVID-19 Data results for Lake County Indiana. We stopped taking the time to calculate the results back in August. However, with the recent resurgence in cases, it seems we’re back with more concerns about COVID-19.

Some of the Lake County cities that were spared in the beginning are now surging and the cities that surged in the beginning are now slowing. It seems this virus has no borders or no submission. The last time we published these results was August 21, 2020, and now it’s November 18th, 2020, approximately 3 months later.

It’s hard to believe that right before two important holidays – Thanksgiving and Christmas – we are now faced with making tough decisions regarding these two special Holidays. We felt it necessary to re-visit the data available from the State of Indiana to give you more information to make your own personal Holiday Decisions.This information comes from a website by the state of Indiana. 

There are also several informative links available as well, that we have included in this post. There are also several very interesting FAQ questions posted on this site as well.
