The Mohave County Health Department has announced another 32 positive coronavirus cases, including 15 in Lake Havasu City. That brings the city’s total to 225 cases since the beginning of the pandemic, and 1,033 for Mohave County.

Of the 15 new Havasu cases, three are hospitalized. One of the hospitalized patients is between 30 and 39 years old, one is 70 and 79, and one is 80-89 years old.

The remaining 11 cases involve people who are recovering at home; six are under 40 years old.

Mohave County also reported seven new cases in the Bullhead City area, and 10 in Kingman.

The latest numbers came on the same day Arizona health officials reported 3,858 more confirmed coronavirus cases, the most reported in a single day in the state so far and the seventh time in the last 10 days that daily cases surpassed the 3,000 mark.

The Arizona Department of Health Services also reported 9 additional deaths.

The numbers pushed Arizona’s documented covid-19 totals to 73,908 cases and 1,588 known deaths.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

What I really can't understand is after all of the stores,bars,restaurants closures and businesses loosing a lot of money and employees out of jobs....Back to work like nothing happened. My thinking says Businesses and everyone should be willing to live with the situation and try to prevent the spreading of Covid so the same thing won't happen again and businesses would be open and everyone working with some simple and commens sense prevention's. No politics involved.

I am sure Covid Cal is not going to do anything to prevent the California onslaught for the week or holiday weekend. What part of the connection can this individual not understand. Went by his hotel and it is jammed with California plates. I am sure Cal will do absolutely nothing with the huge groups of people jamming the beaches this weekend. What a waste of someone in his position as he has put himself as the extreme grand poohbah and locked everyone else out. Great job cal.

Did you see anybody wearing a mask in the Chanel this weekend ?

HavasuGuy

Well the governor has had to institute more restrictions and I believe their will more after these.

For those that complain about "your freedom", thanks a lot. A small inconvenience was just too much for you to handle.

It would actually be very patriotic to wear a mask in public because you would be helping to protect American lives.

It is time to expose the individual responsible for our city's failure to address this pandemic, it is the mayor, Cal Sheehy

Covid-Cal has restricted the city council from taking any action in regards to requiring the public mandate of wearing masks in public.

He alone is ignoring science, medical experts and the proven measures that other countries, states, and cities are using to slow the spread of this virus. We have council members that want to take action now! Look at how many businesses in the community have stepped up to slow the spread.

Why would he do this?

pegymo

[thumbup] Either inexperience, poor leadership, or more concerned about the LBR than the good folks of LHC.

HavasuGuy

pegymo - Maybe all three....

Too old for this

Did you know the FDA just approved a treatment that reduces your chance of getting COVID-19 by 5X?

It’s called Wearamaskasshole.

Side effects include mild inconvenience, possible victim complex, fear of people thinking you are a sheeple, and the power to stop your own asymptomatic transmission.

Check with your doctor, or really anyone, to see if Wearamaskasshole is right for you.

Funny and to the point.

How hard is it to wear a mask? No mask no service!!! How many times must it be said that if you close the boat ramps during this outbreak people will stop coming. Especially in light of one of the biggest weekends for Lake Havasu. I anticipate there will be a very large outbreak here after July 4th weekend.

This is all about money and politics. It wouldn't take much for the City Council to order a mandatory mask requirement. Just an action item on the agenda. The people in this community deserve that.

You know mandatory masks are coming Snakes6951, and afterwards, city leaders will act like they jumped right on the problem.

Soon to follow are more "encouraging" words from Mayor Cal! Meanwhile, Covid-19 is raging like a forest fire through our community with no effort from our beloved electeds to contain it. It's appears they're on the side of the disease rather than the community at large. Thoughts and prayers......there, solved it!

There are no words for the lack of leadership.

shutthefrontdoor

The silence from COVID's office is deafening, however, the sound of the cash register at the "resort" is loud and clear! What does it take to respond to these out-of-control numbers, stand-up and mandate the CDC guidelines, those of words of empathy to this community are repulsive and do absolutely nothing to mitigate the spread of this virus. Close those petri dishes on McCulloch, the channel, the Ramada's at the park and the launch ramps to NON- residents . . . the message :STAY HOME!"

Too old for this

I understand your message. I really do. But, Cal works for someone else, and they are the ones who call the shots. I suppose that he could order the entire hospitality industry in Havasu to close down, but I am not sure that is the real answer. Remember...Trump did not shut down the economy, the Governors of the States are who ordered businesses to close, and look at the people who have lost everything by being declared "non-essential." We may never fully recover from this virus in our lifetimes. The blame should be focused on China, and not the Mayor.

HavasuGuy

Too old - I respectfully disagree.

Covid-Cal has restricted the city council from taking any action in regards to requiring the public mandate of wearing masks in public. This single act could help avert another shutdown in our economy.

He alone is ignoring science, medical experts and the proven measures that other countries, states, and cities are using to slow the spread of this virus. We have council members that want to take action now! Look at how many businesses in the community have already stepped up to slow the spread by shutting their dining rooms and moving back to take out orders.

Why else would he do this? He is looking out for number one, his business and the owners of the London Bridge Resort.

simon1dog

Too old for this is right on!

pegymo

Or he could grab his rocks, and do the right thing, by ignoring the poor intentions of others!

shutthefrontdoor

Good point, however, the Mayor works for his supporters not the resort. I guess you could say we do not have a separation of his job as Mayor and his career in hospitality management both have investors in him but one has a better retirement.
