7-27 daily update

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – July 27, 2020) Riley County has 7 new positive cases since Friday’s report, and 10 more recoveries. The totals are now 110 (-3) active, 312 (+10) recovered, and 4 deaths.

Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan is caring for 3 positive patients at this time. One of those patients is on a ventilator. There is no data available today for PUI* patients today.

The current Riley County Local Health Order 15 is set to expire on July 30. Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs is finalizing the details of Order 16 and will release that that information when the new order is signed. Additional restrictions for restaurants and bars are expected. The Board of County Commissioners voted this morning not to support a county-wide mask requirement, but instead will continue to strongly recommend that people wear masks in public.

The City of Manhattan Mask Ordinance No. 7488 will remain in effect until September 7. Read the full text of the ordinance on the City of Manhattan website at https://cityofmhk.com/DocumentCenter/View/59247/7488-Require-Face-Covering-070720.

The Riley County Police Department also posted a list of answers to frequently asked questions about Manhattan’s mask ordinance at  http://www.rileycountypolice.org/faq/manhattan-mask-ordinance-faqs.

7-27 testing graph

This chart represents test results, by week, for Riley County residents. The graph starts with the 10th week of the year (beginning March 1) and ends with the 30th week (starting July 19). The percentage of positive tests to total test results is an important indicator of how the virus is spreading locally.

The percentage of positive cases compared to the total number tested is stabilizing. Last week, week 30, a total of 310 test results were received, and 9.35% were positive. The week before, week 29, 404 test results were received, and 9.41% were positive. It is important to note that test results take 5-10 days, so the numbers represent swabs collected up to 10 days ago.

*A PUI is a Person Under Investigation; a patient who has symptoms of COVID-19 and is waiting for test results.

**Please note, KDHE is reporting a total of 409 for Riley County. That number is incorrect. The total number of positives for Riley County is 426. The public can find daily updates for statewide statistics at https://www.coronavirus.kdheks.gov/160/COVID-19-in-Kansas.

The Riley County Health Department will host a Facebook Live update at 4:15 p.m. each Wednesday. The public can watch and ask questions on the RCHD Facebook page at /rileycountyhealthdepartment.
