“It is important to remember that the cases being reported only reflect laboratory-confirmed cases. The amount of call volume and emails to the Joint Information Center demonstrates a greater amount of presumptive cases within Leavenworth County that cannot be tested.” -Leavenworth County Public Health Officer, Jamie Miller. “Leavenworth County Health Department continues to stress the importance of staying home and social distancing if you must go out.”
