How has COVID-19 affected Ames?

Covid 19 has hit us big in Ames. The New York Times lists us as a hotspot for Covid- 19. Because of that, there is a mask mandate in Story County and a COVID testing site in Ames. 

Right now there are 4,306 cases in Story County, and most of those cases are in Ames. Eighteen people have died from COVID-19 in Story County.

But the cases are still rising in Story County and in Iowa. 

I have seen students at Iowa State University partying, and it is driving up the cases.

ISU students can currently be tested for COVID through the university.
