Huntington County Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Pflieger wrote that he is taking an “appropriately nervous” approach to a recent rise in COVID-19 cases in a Facebook post Thursday afternoon.

The post from the Huntington County Health Department described the still-high positivity rate in the county, as well as an increase in daily positive tests during the past two weeks. Yesterday, Pflieger said that there has been what he called a “smoldering” of cases following the last major spike.
