COVID-19 Update

We all want to think the pandemic is over, but the number of new cases being reported each day continues to be equal to or greater than last year, and people are still dying. Today, the Columbia County Department of Health reported another death from COVID-19 and 13 new cases. The number of active cases being reported today is 3 fewer than yesterday, from which it can be inferred that, since yesterday, 15 county residents have recovered from the virus. The number of county residents hospitalized and in the ICU today is the same as yesterday.

A year ago today, the CCDOH reported 15 new cases of COVID-19 after a two-day weekend. The total number of cases was 4,354, and the number of active cases was 39. There were 37 county residents in mandatory quarantine, 2 were hospitalized, and 1 was in the ICU. The total number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in Columbia County at this time last year was 96.
