Yesterday, when the Columbia County Department of Health published no COVID numbers, I thought perhaps the CCDOH had decided the pandemic was over. That wasn't the case. The numbers appeared this morning.
Between Friday and Tuesday, there were 45 new cases of COVID-19. The number of active cases reported on Tuesday was 2 more than on Friday, from which it can be inferred that, over the long weekend, 43 county residents recovered from the virus. There were 4 fewer county residents hospitalized on Tuesday than on Friday, and 1 fewer was in the ICU. There has not been a death from COVID-19 reported in Columbia County since June 8.
A year ago on June 21, the CCDOH reported 0 new cases of COVID-19 after a two-day weekend. The total number of cases was 4,261, and the number of active cases was 7. There were 22 county residents in mandatory quarantine, 1 was hospitalized, and 0 were in the ICU. The total number of deaths in Columbia County attributed to COVID-19 at this time last year was 94.
