Two new coronavirus cases were confirmed in Jackson County residents today, upping the number to 33, with 1,319 tests completed to date.
This marks the second consecutive day with an increase in cases, following yesterday’s increase from 27 to 31. In addition, two part-time residents and 22 nonresidents who saw Jackson County health providers have been diagnosed with the disease, though those figures have held steady over recent weeks.
The county has seen only one death from COVID-19 thus far, with 859 such deaths in the state as a whole. To date, 1,326 COVID-19 tests have been performed in Jackson County. That number does not include patients managed over the phone by healthcare providers, and inconclusive lab results are not reportable to the health department.
