COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there have been five new cases of COVID-19 and two recoveries, which, according to my math, increases the number of active cases by three to 25, but the CCDOH says the number of active cases is 24. The number of people hospitalized with the virus and in the ICU has not changed since yesterday, but the number of county residents in mandatory quarantine has increased by five. The number in precautionary quarantine remains the same. Since Wednesday, there have been no deaths from COVID-19 in Columbia County.

With five positives out of 279 test results received, the positive percentage rate for today is 1.8 percent. The seven day rolling average, according to Gossips' calculations, is 1.1 percent--that is, 24 positives out of 2,167 test results received.
