GOSHEN — “At this point, we’re seeing a decrease in the percent of positive cases, and the number of patients hospitalized is relatively steady,” said Dr. Dan Nafziger, Goshen Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist. “The overall number of positive tests is lower in part due to delays in test results — but they may also be related to more people wearing masks more consistently in public.”
