A total of 3,356 people have been tested for the virus. Of those tests, 253 have returned positive, 211 are pending and 2,892 have returned negative, 193 more than Monday.

The total number of hospitalizations since March 5 remains at 50, and two people have died of the virus.

The county changed its eligibility requirements for testing Thursday, July 23. Now, only people who are showing symptoms of the virus, have been exposed to the virus or have been in a large gathering where the virus is likely to have spread should be tested.
