The facility breakdown is only showing the total positive cases from those facilities from where we received a postive swab for COVID-19. Facilities will be added when and if there is a positive case of COVID-19. Because the local health departments don’t follow the positive cases for facilities, we cannot report any recoveries from the facilities with positive cases of COVID-19. If a regulated facility from either of our counties is not listed, there are no positive cases of COVID-19 as of the release of this briefing. The local health departments do not have oversight with many regulated facilities, which may include nursing homes, correctional facilities, hospitals, etc.
