"Statewide, signs are pointing toward the curve flattening and potentially trending downward in the next coming weeks," Mayor Zachary Bray said on the Facebook page. "We need to dig in and continue to do our part to see this through to the end, whenever that may be."

"Opening up too early risks a second spike in cases," he added. "So while the signs are positive, we have to see sustained declines in numbers week after week."
