Today’s Covid-19 Update for Friday, September 25 2020


Roseau County has 125 Positive Cases; with 3 new cases reported today; 10 ACTIVE Cases; 115 having recovered (out of isolation).

The World Health Organization says that a 14-day positive test rate of below 5 percent is the key to keeping businesses open.

Friday’s update includes 1,191 new positive tests for the coronavirus, 14 of which have been removed for an official count of 1,177 cases. Those positives are the result of 14,305 people tested, creating a 24-hour reporting period test positivity rate of 8.23%.

The positive test rate is lower from the perspective when the number of individuals producing positive tests (1,177) divided by total completed tests (28,230). In that case, the positivity rate is 4.17%.

The “tests completed” number is always higher than the “people tested” metric because some people get tested multiple times and those who test positive are only counted once, so it produces a less accurate positivity rate.

Three more people were added to the death toll in Thursday’s report.
