Riley County is reporting 8 new COVID cases in the past week.

Along with the new cases, there are 25 additional recoveries from last week. Those new cases are the only reported active cases in the county.

Ascension Via Christi has reported they are caring for zero COVID positive patients at this time.

Percent positive information is no longer available as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Labs will no longer be required to report negative test results, only positive results which is the same process used for all other infectious diseases in the United States.

Starting this week, the Riley County Health Department reports will include active cases, current hospitalizations, recoveries, total positive cases, deaths, and incidents per 100,000 people. The current population of Riley County is about 72,000 people, so the rate per 100,000 will be higher than the reported case numbers.
