“I’ve done it all,” says April Horton. “I jumped in, both feet, and It’s been very rewarding. I’ve built some amazing friendships, and I will miss those, and all the support and love this town has shown me."
“Some of the processes have gotten a little more challenging with the pandemic, and this is one of them,” Mayor Clay Koplin said. “But challenges like the pandemic are exactly why it’s important to properly count the population. Whether it’s test kits or personal protective equipment or the number of people working in critical industries, all those pieces are important.”
Officials reported Cordova’s 11th case of the novel coronavirus Thursday, July 23.
All 10 identified local cases of the novel coronavirus have recovered. No new local cases of the virus have been reported since July 10.
