As COVID-19 cases rise across the region, Poloncars said that while the county is seeing a spike in cases, it is also seeing a rise in testing being done. For the week ending November 28, Poloncars says the county reported 53,699 tests for COVID-19.

“I don’t like to see a higher daily rate of positivity … We have seen more days with higher positive rates,” Poloncars said.
