7-1 daily update

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – July 1, 2020) Riley County has 9 new positive cases since yesterday’s report, bringing the total to 242. This is consistent with the average daily increase over the past two weeks. An additional 16 patients are considered recovered, so the active total for the county actually decreased today. There are now 132 active, 107 recovered, and 3 deaths.

There are several requirements for a patient to be considered recovered. First, at least 10 days must have passed since symptoms started or since the date the test was given (for asymptomatic patients). Second, if a patient had symptoms, they must be without fever for at least 72 hours and show improvement of other symptoms to be counted as recovered. Patients are not re-tested and there is no requirement for a negative test.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • fever of 100.4 or higher
  • chills
  • stiff joints and/or muscle ache
  • fatigue
  • headache
  • sore throat
  • cough or shortness of breath
  • loss of taste
  • diarrhea (that does not have another cause)

Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should call the Riley County Health Department’s Screening Hotline to speak with a nurse at 785-323-6400. The Screening Hotline is staffed Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. After hours, please contact your physician, Kstat, or other urgent care service if you have questions. If you have an emergency, call 911.

Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan has one positive patient who is on a ventilator. There is also one Person Under Investigation who is an inpatient. A PUI is a person who has symptoms of COVID-19 and is waiting for test results.
