  • Why is the State Gazette not reporting on COVID hotspots in the county? I'm interested about how many businesses, churches, and factories have had outbreaks in the area. Apparently Taco Bell closed this week due to an employee testing positive for COVID, and quite a few churches have stopped having in-person services because of positive cases in the congregation. Why hasn't this been in the news?

    I wonder how many deaths have occurred as a result of early re-opening. Horribly, I've heard of one person who tested positive after attending a church service in the Newbern / Roellen area and died at West Tennessee Heatlhcare Dyersburg Hospital in the past week. Why haven't we heard about this?

    Please do some actual journalism and not this cut & paste job of whatever the Tennessee Department of Health releases.
