The Columbia County Department of Health released its numbers earlier today. Since yesterday, there have been two new cases of COVID-19. The number of active cases being reported today is one fewer than yesterday, from which it can be inferred that three more county residents are now considered to be recovering from the virus. There are six more county residents in mandatory quarantine today than yesterday, but the number hospitalized with the virus remains the same. There has not been a death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since June 24.
