  1. Hi Brock. Hope you had a good trip back.
    FYI, there has been a positive corona virus diag in Wake Cnty.
    Possible corona virus in Asheville from a man who came from
    Hong Kong and worked at a primary school in West Asheville.
    He presented with resp. involvement and was sent home.
    Who the Hell knows! He also showed up for work at the school.

    1. Yes and thank you. I believe it was the one in Wake who traveled somewhere in February but had no symptoms.
