Optional Daily Updates
Good morning - we hope that you're safe and healthy as we all deal with the critical work of operating local government in this complicated time. Since the start of the pandemic, when Cumberland County's Executive Office transitioned to remote operations, our Public Affairs office has sent a daily update to Commissioners and senior staff. The update contains the latest COVID-19 statistics statewide and in Cumberland County in a helpful graphic, weekly trend data about the disease at state and local levels, relevant updates from Dr. Shah's daily press conferences and announcements from the Governor's office, and occasionally links to news items that are important to our region on subjects that are related to the pandemic: like unemployment statistics, the status of state and federal policymaking, progress on scientific research and modeling.
Sometimes these updates are brief, if there isn't much new relevant news to report; but we always send the daily stats in a graphic like the one you'll see below. Staff and the Commissioners have found these daily roundups helpful, and we realized there's no reason we can't share them more far and wide. Below is yesterday's update, to give you an idea of what these look like (yesterday's was especially data heavy). We usually send them around 3pm, shortly after the conclusion of the daily press conference.
If you'd like to start receiving these, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll be happy to add you to the list.
If you aren't interested in getting the daily email but like to see the stat graphics, like or follow our Facebook page
. We post them there daily, as well as on our Covid-19 resources page
Stay safe out there, and take care of each other.
