KEYSTONE — Summit County reported five new cases of the novel coronavirus since Monday, bringing the total number of cases since March 5 to 268. There were 86 negative tests during the same five-day period.

A total of 1,825 people have been tested for the virus, according to the county’s coronavirus webpage. Of those tests, 1,528 have returned negative, 42 are pending and 221 are positive. There are more cases than positive tests because some patients are presumed positive after having close contact with a known positive case.

The county also reported one additional death due to the virus. A 75-year-old man died Monday, June 15, of a hemorrhagic stroke “with contributing conditions of the COVID-19 virus,” according to a news release.

The total number of hospitalizations since March 5 remains at 48.

Testing is available in Summit County for people who are experiencing symptoms of the virus and those who have been exposed to the virus but do not show symptoms. Centura Health provides testing at its Centers for Occupational Medicine and through the mobile testing program. To receive a testing order and schedule an appointment, call 970-668-5584.
