Caveat

From Hopewell Township Committee Member Julie Blake in her April 1 video with Mayor McLaughlin here. She said that she wanted to share information from the Health Officer that: “the number of 20 really  grossly underestimates the actual prevalence of  the disease in our community. This is only lab-confirmed cases and you must be aware that symptomatic household members don’t get counted.”

She continued to explain that greater access to testing will provide better numbers but as of right now, people should expect the number to be much higher than reported.

This information is reported every weekday, usually between 5 and 6pm here

Amie Rukenstein
Amie Rukenstein is a very curious and enthusiastic resident of Hopewell Township who can never let a question go unanswered. Amie lives in Titusville with her husband, Ron, and numerous pets. She vastly enjoys frequent visits from her college-age children and their friends. In most aspects of her life, including with her new role at MercerMe, Amie is an organizer. With a full-time job and as a member of several non-profit organizations, she finds herself most often with her laptop open and excel and google on the screen. She does, however, leave the computer as often as possible to hike in Washington Crossing Park. Amie and Ron recently purchased what appears to be the oldest structure in Titusville. Known as The Titus Store at the corner of Church and River Drive and abandoned for 20 years, they look forward to restoring the building to its former glory.
