I can understand privacy issues with regard to name, gender, etc, of the infected person.. But the location should certainly be given to the public. Beaver County is large and without location information, panic can be very real.

Beaver county, relative to Harris County, Texas, is not large by any means. I have 10 cases in my county (That are at least publically known) and they could be literally anywhere, haha.

Beaver County Area: 444 mi²
Population: 166,140

Harris County Area: 1,777 mi²
Population: 4.653 million

Beaver county should be on high alert, no matter if it’s in Hopewell, Aliquippa, Center, Beaver, wherever.
The county isn’t large and regardless, everyone there should be careful.
