COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health released its numbers at 5:00 p.m. today, and among statistics was the sad news that there has been another death from COVID-19 in the county. Also, since yesterday, there have been four new cases of COVID-19 and one recovery, increasing the number of active cases by two to 73. The number of people hospitalized with the virus and in the ICU remains the same as yesterday, but there are 124 more county residents in mandatory quarantine. No one is in precautionary quarantine.  

With four positives out of 419 test results received, the positive percentage rate for today is just under 1 percent. The seven day rolling average, according to Gossips' calculations, is 1.8 percent--that is, 49 positives out of 2,781 test results.
