As of 1:00 PM on Monday, March 30, 2020, there are 3 confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Logan County.  Going forward, LCHD will not be tracking negative and pending test numbers for a few reasons.  First, labs testing for COVID-19 are now only required to report positive COVID-19 results due to the pandemic environment.  Healthcare providers, labs and public health agencies were struggling to meet the reporting requirement as the number of tests submitted across the state increased exponentially over a period of days.  To alleviate some of that pressure, labs are now only required to report the positive COVID-19 test results.  Second, Logan County residents can go out of the county to be tested and the only communication LCHD would receive is if the test comes back positive for COVID-19.  Because of these factors, the amount of negative and pending test results is no longer feasible to track.   Updates on positive cases will be provided as changes occur via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and at www.loganhealth.org.
