The Riley County Health Department says 43 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the past week, while there were 19 recoveries during the same timeframe. That jump in cases means there are nearly 70 cases active currently in the county.

Just over 50 tests registered positive on the week, out of 526 tests given. That moves Riley County’s positive rate to 9-point-7 percent, though the number of people getting tested for coronavirus continues to decrease.

One COVID-positive patient is currently hospitalized, but is not in the Intensive Care Unit.

The county health department is preparing for giving second doses of the vaccine to those who attended the Youth Vaccine Clinic May 20th. The county will be giving those shots next Thursday.
