Wright County Public Health Releases Weekly COVID-19 Dashboard

October has been a brutal month for COVID-19 in Wright County. Over the last reporting period for Wright County Public Health’s COVID-19 dashboard (Oct. 23-29), the number of positive COVID-19 cases almost doubled the previous weekly high. There were 397 new confirmed cases this week, shattering the previous one-week high of 215. There were also two more deaths in the county attributed to COVID-19, bringing the county’s total to 16.

October has by far been the worst month for new cases since the pandemic began recording positive cases in Wright County in mid-March. For the six-and-a-half month leading up to October, there were 1,730 confirmed cases with 105 hospitalizations and seven deaths. From Oct. 2-29, there have been 1,001 new cases, 33 hospitalizations and nine deaths, bringing Wright County’s totals in those categories to 2,731 cases, 138 hospitalizations and 16 deaths.

The Wright County dashboard is updated weekly, but the Minnesota Department of Health updates its dashboard daily and it included a one-day high of 94 new cases in Wright County in the reporting today (Oct. 30).
