CoxHealth says the numbers show the coronavirus is here in the Ozarks and its spreading.
Nearly nine percent of the people with COVID-19 symptoms who were tested Thursday tested positive.
That’s four percent higher than what it was just seven days ago.
It’s also double what it was 30 days ago.
Cases are skyrocketing in Jasper, McDonald, Newton and Taney Counties.
Health officials say its a sign that you need to wear a mask and practice social distancing to protect yourself and others.
