  1. What is the definition of “unique” individuals? No matter, the positivity rate is up, and not where it should be for Holcomb to be moving forward opening up more. I am concerned I am seeing more of the Trump mentality here with Holcomb. As of today, Trump, his WH administration, Republican Senators etal., are not fairing well. A few more of those negatives now will be positives in a couple days.

    To all who are tired and have been griping about wearing a mask and not being able to get back to normal, wear a mask and social distance!!

    Are we going to see a Designated Survivor here?

    1. Lorna, the state has two testing categories: 1. total tests, and 2. unique individuals tested. If one person is tested three times, that would count as three in the first category and one in the second category.
