Since October 1, the City of Taylor has seen a spike of 666 new cases of COVID-19, including 15 deaths. This and more in the Wayne County Report for November 20, 2020.
Taylor COVID cases have mirrored the dangerously high spike seen in cases and hospitalizations across the country. In the countywide health data released for November 19, Taylor reported 32 new cases, to increase this year’s total to 1,717. No new deaths were reported (that number remains at 93 overall).
