The Columbia County Department of Health has released its numbers for today. Since yesterday, there have been 33 new cases of COVID-19. The number of active cases being reported today is 65 fewer than yesterday, which suggests, as we suspected, there was something wrong with the number of active cases reported yesterday. There are 21 more county residents in mandatory quarantine today than yesterday, but the number hospitalized remains the same. None of those hospitalized is now in the ICU. There has not been a death from COVID-19 in Columbia County since Wednesday.
