Today’s Covid-19 Update for Sunday, September 27 2020


Roseau County has 127 Positive Cases; with 1 new cases reported today; 12 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.

Sunday’s update includes 1,077 new positive tests for the coronavirus, two of which have been removed for an official count of 1,075 cases. Those positives are the result of 15,830 people tested, creating a 24-hour reporting period test positivity rate of 6.79%.

The positive test rate is lower from the perspective when the number of individuals producing positive tests (1,075) divided by total completed tests (25,283). In that case, the positivity rate is 4.25%.

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.


  • Total tests: 1,981,100 (up from 1,954,715)
  • People tested: 1,384,512 (up from 1,368,682)
  • Positive cases: 96,734 (up from 95,659)
  • Deaths: 2,008 (up from 2,004)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 86,252 (up from 85,259)
