COVID-19 Update

The Western Upper Peninsula Health Department released its latest COVID-19 report Thursday night. The three-county area had 23 new confirmed cases and one death. As has been the pattern for weeks now, recoveries were significantly higher than positives coming in at a combined 59.

Health Officer Kate Beer says the small bump from last week should abate quickly now that the NFL playoffs are over.

We saw that spike in the beginning of February there, some of it was football party related.

TOTAL: 32 more positives, 14 more probable positives, 91 more recoveries and 3 deaths
BARAGA COUNTY: 2 more positives, 1 more probable positive, 2 more recoveries and 1 death
GOGEBIC COUNTY: 7 more positives, 3 more probable positives, 21 more recoveries and 1 death
