Marion County Health Department Administrator Melissa Mallow says for the 8th day in a row they have no new positive cases of COVID-19 to report.
The county remains at 51 positive cases. 49 of those have recovered. Mallow reports only one remains hospitalized, but the person is now off a ventilator and appears to be recovering. The other active case is at home recovering.
Mallow says Marion County residents are still being tested and the county is now up to 1,263 negative tests.
Mallow notes the news is positive, but at this point, she doesn’t feel anything more can be read into the numbers.
