COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there have been ten new cases of COVID-19 and seven recoveries, increasing the number of active cases by three to 120. The number of people hospitalized with the virus remains the same, but today there is one more person in the ICU. Since the CCDOH is now only reporting the number of county residents whose quarantine is being monitored by them, those numbers seem less relevant than they once did. The good news is there has not been a death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since Wednesday, October 28. 

With ten positives out of 466 test results received, the positive percentage rate for today is 2.1 percent. The seven day rolling average, according to Gossips' calculations, is 2.7 percent--that is, 85 positives out of 3,133 test results.
