The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. The CCDOH is reporting 35 new cases of COVID-19: 27 since yesterday and eight that were "transferred in/leftover from weekend." There have also been 26 recoveries, which would seem to increase the number of active cases by nine to 119, but the CCDOH is reporting only 118. There has also been another death from COVID-19, just six days after the previous death, which is probably the reason there is one fewer county resident hospitalized with the virus today than yesterday.
With 27 positives out of 410 test results received, the positive percentage rate for today is 6.6 percent. The seven day average, according to Gossips' calculations, based on the numbers reported by the CCDOH, is 9.5 percent--that is, 167 positives out of 1,751 test results. The New York Forward dashboard, however, is reporting a positivity rate of 6.5 percent for the past 24 hours and a seven day average of 4.7 percent.
