The La Crosse County Health Department announced 22 new lab-confirmed Coronavirus cases Thursday.
Of the 357, 142 (40 percent) recovered. There are no deaths, and two are known to be hospitalized.
Because of high case volume, the health department released a form to gather information electronically. The form is for those who tested positive for COVID-19 after June 15. The health department is asking all cases to complete the form to help speed up the identification of common places and dates where cases are connected.
The overall percentage of 10,519 cases completed since the pandemic began is at 3.4 percent positive, a number that has been slowly on the rise. Health Director Jen Rombalski said the increase in cases is because of more virus spread, not more testing.
Of the new cases, 16 are individuals in their 20s. Two are in their 30s, two in their 40s, one in her 50s, and another in his 60s.
The health department did list new high-risk locations and dates of exposure to its Outbreak and Investigation Page.
