SOUTH CENTRAL HEALTH DISTRICT (for testing questions):
In an effort to keep the public informed of the current impact COVID-19 is having in our ten-county health district, the South Central Health District will post a weekly update of the previous week’s cases each Monday. The following chart details the weekly confirmed COVID-19 cases by county. In addition, weekly and cumulative (total number of deaths since the pandemic began) deaths, by county, are also included. There is currently no definition of recovery for COVID-19; therefore, we cannot provide an accurate case count of those who have recovered. In addition, there is often a delay in the reporting of COVID-19 deaths as deaths are not reported in “real time”. The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases for the district is currently 15,056.
