Warren County Releases Statistics on 930 COVID-19 Cases as of Friday

Warren County’s COVID-19 Data Report:

There are now 930 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Warren County. An average of 28 new cases per day have been reported in the past 7 days.

The first case of COVID-19, caused by novel coronavirus (SARS COV-2) in Warren County was identified on March 17, 2020. Since then, cases have been identified in all 22 municipalities.

As cases are reported to the Warren County Health Department, they are investigated as quickly as possible. Cases are interviewed about their symptoms, risk factors, and close contacts, including their place of employment and coworkers when applicable. Beginning April 24, the case definition for novel coronavirus expanded to include “probable” cases; these cases must fit certain epidemiologic and clinical criteria and most often, they are untested, symptomatic house-hold contacts of lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases. Advice is given to all confirmed cases regarding their own self-isolation and investigators notify close contacts of their risk and advise them on 14-day quarantine measures.

Information on recoveries is self-reported or reported by a case’s doctor or residential facility.

329 COVID-19 cases are residents of Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCFs); 7 facilities total. Currently, 35% of Warren County’s COVID-19 cases are residents of Long Term Care Facilities (LTCFs).

There are now 84 COVID-19-related deaths reported to WCHD; 65 are associated with long term care facilities.
