COVID-19 Update

The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there have been eighteen new cases of COVID-19 and thirteen recoveries, which should increase the number of active cases by five to 123, but the CCDOH is reporting 133, an increase of fifteen over yesterday. The number of county residents hospitalized with the virus remains the same as yesterday, and there has not been another death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since yesterday.  

With eighteen positives out of 194 test results received, the positive percentage rate for today is 9 percent. The seven day average, according to Gossips' calculations, based on the numbers reported by the CCDOH, is 11 percent--that is, 180 positives out of 1,581 test results. The New York Forward dashboard, however, is reporting a positivity rate of 5.5 percent for the past 24 hours and a seven day average of 4.9 percent.
