While Bulloch County confirmed positives are up by 3 since yesterday, our hospitalizations remain low which is a good sign.  The increase in testing would also contribute to that increase.  With aggressive testing and contact tracing, people can still be at risk when going out. The Department of Public Health is working hard to implement both.  Social gatherings will be limited to a few people and wearing masks in public will likely remain necessary.  If you are headed to the Beach or Lake this weekend, expect a strong law enforcement presence.  State Patrol and DNR will be operating at near full strength throughout the holiday weekend.
