Cerro Gordo County slips on latest social distancing scorecard

first_imgMASON CITY — Last week, Mason City’s mayor said a national company that gathers cell phone location data and provided analysis to various companies had ranked Cerro Gordo County positively in heeding to the “stay at home” concept during the COVID-19 crisis. During a news conference with local health leaders yesterday afternoon, Bill Schickel said Cerro Gordo County had slipped on Unacast’s latest non-essential travel scorecard.  “Last week I reported that Cerro Gordo County was doing a little better than the statewide average on what is called the social distancing scorecard. This afternoon, I have to let you know that we’re actually doing a little bit worse. As of March 30th, the scorecard gives the US a ‘C’, it gives Iowa a ‘D’, and unfortunately it gives Cerro Gordo County a ‘D-minus’, with an ‘F’ in the category of reducing non-essential travel.” Schickel says the public needs to continue to do their best to stay inside and only be out and about when necessary.  “The caution in this particular data is that history tells us that communities that let up their guard too early have paid a tremendous price in the long run. That’s why it’s so important that we keep our social distancing.” The latest data from Unacast gives Winnebago, Hancock, and Kossuth counties “B” grades; “C” grades for Worth, Mitchell, Butler, Franklin and Wright; and a “D” for Floyd County.

The reality is that he is injured and cannot play until February,” Pochettino said ahead of sixth-placed Spurs’ clash with Brighton on Wednesday.“You miss the players who are not fit but football is a collective sport about the team not individuals.“Some players have more influence on the team. But we have squad enough and players who can play.”Alderweireld’s layoff means the defender is likely to sit out crunch Premier League games against Manchester City and Manchester United but could return in February for matches against Liverpool and Arsenal.Spurs then face Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 on February 13.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
