The Clatsop County Public Health Department on Monday, Oct. 12, reported four new local COVID-19 cases.
The individuals are:
Female, age 30-39, north-county resident
Male, age 30-39, north-county resident
Male, age 40-49, north-county resident
Male, age 50-59, north county resident
All four were recovering at home.
The county has recorded a total of 231 COVID-19 cases since March. Two-hundred and twenty-one of those individuals have recovered; the others are convalescing at home.
The new total case count is lower than previously reported; the Public Health Department determined that some recent cases actually involved residents of other counties, or were counted more than once.
The county is offering drive-through COVID-19 testing to members of the public two days a week. In most cases testing is being limited to those with COVID-19 symptoms or individuals who are contacts of positive cases.
