According to the Wayne County Report for August 6, 2020, more than 100 teens in three southeastern Michigan counties have tested positive for COVID-19 since mid-July, and health officials believe at least a half-dozen large indoor and outdoor gatherings in recent weeks, including graduation parties and prom-like events, may be responsible.
The steep spike in positive COVID-19 cases has hit those in the 15- to 19-year-old age range in Oakland, Livingston and Genesee counties. The number of cases in that age range has gone from a relatively few to dozens in each of the counties.
Meanwhile, the countywide COVID-19 totals for August 5, 2020, indicated that Taylor had two new confirmed cases, upping the yearly total to 852. No new deaths were reported. That annual total remains at 72.
