A THIRD POLK COUNTY RESIDENT DIES WITH COVID-19, STATE REPORTS 589 NEW POSITIVE CASES

The Minnesota Department of Health is reporting 589 new cases of COVID-19 and five deaths, including the third COVID-19 related death in Polk County. Polk County also had two new positive tests. 

The death in Polk County was an individual in their 80s, with underlying health conditions who’d had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.  “We certainly wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased individual,” said Polk County Public Health Director Sarah Reese. “We also saw an uptick of cases and are now at 86 lab-confirmed cases. Noting this unfortunate death and the continuous uptick of cases, it is important that we are all mindful as COVID continues to spread in our communities that we all do our part to keep those around us safe and slow the spread of COVID-19.”

According to Reese, the case is listed as a likely exposure due to contact with a confirmed case. 

All the state COVID-19 numbers are below.

Updated July 9, 2020
Updated daily at 11 a.m., with data current as of 4 p.m. the previous day.

Data is for cases that were tested and returned positive. All data is preliminary and may change as cases are investigated. Many data points are collected during case interviews. Data presented below is for all cases, regardless of interview status. Data for cases pending interview may be listed as “unknown/missing.”

Not all suspected cases of COVID-19 are tested, so this data is not representative of the total number of people in Minnesota who have or had COVID-19. Cumulative numbers are since Jan. 20, 2020.

Daily Update:

Because all data is preliminary, the change in number of cumulative positive cases and deaths from one day to the next may not equal the newly reported cases or deaths.

More about testing data

  • Testing numbers show how many total tests have been done for people who live in Minnesota. Some people get tested more than once.
    • As of 6/5, tests are reported per test instead of per person to account for changes in testing capacity and for individuals who are tested more than once over the course of the pandemic.
  • Due to civil unrest in St. Paul and surrounding areas, the MDH Public Health Lab was closed from 5/30 – 6/1. COVID-19 specimens were not accepted and no tests were run during this time. When possible, samples were re-routed to partner laboratories.
  • Results from 4/29 and 6/3 included a backlog of tests loaded into our system. Previously we were not updating tests reported for past dates; going forward we will be updating that historical data.

Minnesota Case Overview

  • Total positive cases: 40,163

  • Deaths are for those who have died from COVID-19.
  • Probable COVID-19 Deaths have COVID-19 listed on death certificate but a positive test not documented for the person. Because there was no positive test, these individuals are not included in total positive cases or total deaths from COVID-19.
  • A death previously reported on 6/11 was removed on 6/20 due to data cleaning.
  • A death previously reported on 5/6 was removed on 6/24 due to data cleaning.
  • Deaths are represented by the date reported. This means our data will show no report for 7/4.
