Total now at 69; Second largest one-day jump since the start of the pandemic

Adams County has seen the second-largest single-day increase in positive cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. 

The Adams County Health Department said Wednesday they've learned of 7 new cases of the virus since Tuesday. Only on April 8th, when 8 new cases were announced, has there been a bigger one-day increase. That brings the total number of confirmed cases to 69. The Health Department says this is over a 50 per cent increase in the last week in the number of previously detected cases. Contact tracing investigations are being conducted in all seven cases. The Health Department is recommending that all people with symptoms also seek testing by calling the community hotline or their healthcare provider and telling them that you have COVID-19 symptoms. The Health Department also says that if they contact you about being exposed to the virus, you may be asked to monitor for symptoms. You may also be asked to remain away from others for a period of time. The Health Department says that is an important step in reducing spread to your loved ones, friends and co-workers.

They add that no one is currently hospitalized for COVID-19, for the first time in nearly a month.
