Lewis County Public Health & Social Services (LCPHSS) announced on June 29 that one county resident in their 40s living in Commissioner District #3 has tested positive for COVID-19, but has not been hospitalized. In addition, two more previously reported cases are now considered recovered under the current definition.

This brings the total number of known county residents with positive tests to 70. Some people may have had more than one positive test result, however, test results are de-duplicated. That means the number being reported by LCPHSS equals the number of county residents who have fallen ill.

33 of the 70 Lewis County cases are now considered recovered under the current definition.  Three of the 70 who tested positive have died. There have been nearly 3,099 COVID-19 test results returned in Lewis County with a 2.0% positive rate.

Positive test cases and recoveries have occurred in all areas of the county. Breaking them down by County Commissioner district shows:

                        Cases         Recovered

District 1………… 32……………. 16

District 2………… 27……………… 8

District 3………… 10……………… 7
