I was asked to provide info about the cases in Rockingham County, and specifically, about cases per 100,000 people. I have compiled some historical data about Rockingham County, which can be found on my website. I have also added a few statistics from Rockingham County to my daily update. I hope this is helpful. 

Stay safe, and always, be kind.
