    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Republican-led House endorsed a measure Monday that would prohibit state or local governments from mandating face coverings. Representatives approved the measure 50-44. The bill also prohibits “making use of a face mask, shield, or covering a condition for entry for education, employment, or services.” The bill now goes to the Senate. Bill sponsor GOP Rep. Jeff Hoverson and others argued there was no proof that masks work to slow the spread of the coronavirus and they questioned the government’s role in mandating them.

Doug Burgum, imposed a mask mandate in November after months of refraining from such an order, hoping to stem a coronavirus surge that had been among the worst in the U.S. and threatened to overwhelm the state’s hospitals. The Republican governor dropped the statewide mask requirement as well as limits on the number of...

Stephen Love, President and CEO of the DFW Hospital Council said Monday, Nov. 16 there are nearly 2,200 lab-confirmed Covid-19 patients hospitalized in the North Texas region, which is the Trauma Service Area “E.” Love said, “It’s more than we had in July.

When you combine all of that, we could have much more community spread.” Records posted on the Texas Department of State Health Services website shows the peak over the summer came July 22, when 1,965 Covid-19 patients were being treated in North Texas hospitals.

    Active coronavirus cases among Veterans Affairs patients topped 5,000 on Sunday, the first time the total has surpassed that mark since the department’s massive spike in cases in mid-summer. The number of active cases has doubled in the last 40 days, reflecting national trends showing an increase in virus cases in recent weeks. More than 72,000 VA patients have contracted the illness in the last eight months. VA leadership has repeatedly dismissed concerns about the rising number of active cases, insisting that the hospitalization rate among those patients remains at a low percentage of individuals. However, the number of inpatients at VA facilities with coronavirus complications has increased by nearly one-third in the last month, reaching 445 in the department’s last public update.

    President Donald Trump's physician has said he is no longer at risk of transmitting the coronavirus -- but did not say explicitly whether Trump had tested negative for it.   In a memo released on Saturday night, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said Trump met the CDC criteria for safely discontinuing isolation and that by 'currently recognized standards' he was no longer considered a transmission risk.

    SCIOTO- The Scioto County Health Department and Portsmouth City Health Department reported a significant increase of confirmed coronavirus cases Monday, bringing the number to 607 since the beginning of the outbreak Apr. 4. During the weekend, 32 cases were reported bringing the active total to 119, which Scioto County Emergency Management Agency Director Larry Mullins said was the highest active total for the county through the pandemic. Fearing citizens putting their guard down, Mullins asked for residents to commit to safety measures such as wearing masks and social distancing. “I think people are tired and have started to stop following the guidelines,” said Mullins, the large increase in cases causing SCHD to request no longer separating the number of men and women with the coronavirus. “We’ve seen a lot of cases over the past few weeks.” Commenters on the Scioto EMA post claimed the increase was due to permission for...

    Military suicides have increased by as much as 20% this year compared to the same period in 2019, and some incidents of violent behavior have spiked as service members struggle under COVID-19, war-zone deployments, national disasters and civil unrest. While the data is incomplete and causes of suicide are complex, Army and Air Force officials say they believe the pandemic is adding stress to an already strained force. And senior Army leaders - who say they've seen about a 30% jump in active duty suicides so far this year - told The Associated Press that they are looking at shortening combat deployments. Such a move would be part of a broader effort to make the wellbeing of soldiers and their families the Army's top priority, overtaking combat readiness and weapons modernization. The Pentagon refused to provide 2020 data or discuss the issue, but Army officials said discussions in Defense Department...
    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota reported 497 people who have tested positive for the coronavirus on Saturday, contributing to an all-time high for active coronavirus cases statewide at 3,672. The state also reported one of the largest single-day tallies for deaths from COVID-19 with eight people dying from the disease. The waves of cases and hospitalizations have prompted concerns that hospitals are nearing their capacity, the Bismark Tribune reported. There are currently 104 people in hospitals statewide with COVID-19. They occupy roughly 5% of the state's total hospital beds, but employees of hospitals in the Bismark area told the COVID-19 task force for Burleigh and Morton counties that the influx in patients has disrupted hospital operations. North Dakota has reported the nation's highest number of new cases per capita in the last two weeks, at roughly 684 new cases per 100,000 people. The Department of Health reported the results...
    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Nursing homes make up nearly half of the places in Kansas linked to active coronavirus clusters of five or more cases and some of them still are struggling to find testing supplies despite heightened federal testing requirements, a state official told legislators. The state Department of Health and Environment has resumed its weekly reports on specific coronavirus clusters. It started releasing the data on Sept. 9 but paused it for a week because the first reports included weeks-old cases in the counts for businesses and other places that still had active ones. The latest report, issued Wednesday, lists places that have had five or more active cases within the past 14 days, and only the cases in which symptoms started during that period, not a long-term cumulative total. The latest health department report lists 29 clusters, including 14 that are tied to nursing homes in 11...
    BISMRCK, N.D. (AP) — Daily coronavirus data in North Dakota set four records on Friday, as active cases of COVID-19 neared 3,000, deaths continued to mount in Burleigh County, and the state issued an emergency call for volunteer staffing at long-term care facilities that are seeing a surge in cases. The Bismarck Tribune reported that newly confirmed COVID-19 cases in the general population statewide totaled 508, active cases reached 2,986, hospitalizations totaled 77 and daily tests hit 10,006.

    By ANDREW DeMILLO, Associated Press LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas on Friday reported a new daily record for confirmed coronavirus cases, surpassing the one-day record increase set a week ago. The Department of Health reported 1,107 people tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the state's total confirmed cases since the pandemic began to 67,911. The state reported an additional 78 people were positive through antigen testing. The increase comes after four straight days of less than 400 new cases. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he's not considering new restrictions, but said the state may look at action in other areas such as contact tracing if it continues seeing multiple days of cases exceeding 1,000. “You don't want to take action broadly in terms of restrictions and businesses if they're not related to an increase in cases," Hutchinson said. Colleges and universities remained a major driver of the...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Is it time to put the kids back in the grocery cart, back to playdates? The answer is yes but with a big asterisk. The hunker down atmosphere of March has given way to a cautious stepping out in September. Since the pandemic began we’ve learned that kids are not as susceptible as adults to serious outcomes from the virus and there is power in a mask. Allegheny Health Network Internist Dr. Jennifer Preiss said it’s okay to say yes when those little arms reach up and you hear, “I go too.” “If on occasion you want to take your children to the grocery store with you and they are good mask-wearers, I think that it is probably fine to go,” she said. “We understand a little bit more about what type of exposures are high-risk exposures and everyone talks about what the CDC is...

    Josep María Aguiló FOLLOW Palma de Mallorca Updated: 08/25/2020 11:24 PM Save The Ministry of Health of the Balearic Government has reported this Tuesday that in the last twenty-four hours they have been notified 908 new positive cases of coronavirus in the Archipelago compared to yesterday. In the last two weeks, the infections had remained, on average, somewhat above 200 new cases per day, which a priori seemed to mean that this Tuesday there would have been an exponential growth of Covid-19 infections in the Islands. However, official sources from the Ministry of Health have clarified that the high total figure provided this Tuesday includes cases that had not yet been accounted for in previous days, so the real number of new infections compared to yesterday would be significantly lower than the 908 cases reported this Tuesday. In any case, even taking into account this circumstance of numerical lag,...

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The first state reports of COVID-19 cases connected to child care facilities show combined active cases across the largest counties in North Texas are in the single digits. Total cases in any one facility have been limited to 10 or less and cases among employees have been nearly double those among children. The daily reporting from Texas Health and Human Services comes as school districts continue to consider reopening plans and families debate education options. The data relies on child care facilities to self-report cases and does not provide information on total enrollment or employment numbers to determine the infection rate. In Tarrant Count though, Kara Waddell, the President and CEO of Child Care Associations, said she believes the data is accurate locally. Waddell said the organization, which has provided guidance to county officials on child care issues during the pandemic, has offered free cleaning services...
    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has reported 61 confirmed cases of the coronavirus on Thursday, officials said. The university tested more than 10,000 students and staffers ahead of the fall semester, which is scheduled to begin on Monday. Out of the 61 confirmed cases, 46 are still active as of Thursday and 15 people have recovered. Two of the 46 active cases are students who were living in the dorms. They have since been isolated. Other students who were in close contact with the infected students are now required to quarantine for 14 days. Eight of the active cases are university employees who live off campus. The final 36 of the active cases are students who live off campus, many of whom officials say do not live in Laramie. School officials had initially planned to begin in-person classes immediately, but they decided last week that only some...

    The Pentagon said Wednesday that 18- to 24-year-old service members are testing positive for the coronavirus at a higher rate than the general population but suffering lower rates of hospitalization and mortality. “As a community, transmission rate has gone up,” said Defense coronavirus task force medical adviser Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul Friedrichs in a Pentagon briefing. Friedrichs attributed the gain to increased testing, not to violating health protection measures by doing such things as visiting bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in outbreak areas. “We’re not seeing widespread evidence that what is occurring in the 18- to 24-year-old demographic is because they’re not following the rules,” he said. The Defense Department said the overall positivity rate has held steady at 5.3% for active-duty service members, thanks in large part to strict adherence to mask-wearing, social distancing, and hand-washing.

    Ashmus (CDCR photo)  Another California death row inmate has died from what appears to be complications of the coronavirus amid an outbreak sweeping through San Quentin State Prison, authorities said Monday. Troy Ashmus, 58, died Monday, according to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The new cases -- many in the country's industrial north-east where a mine outbreak occurred -- have so far been milder than before. The number of people in hospitals was 135 on Saturday, less than a third of the peak of 446 in April and far below capacities of...
