COVID-19 Update: Current Positives
The number of COVID-19 patients on the infographic below reflects anyone in the hospital that is currently COVID-19 positive. Most of them (approximately 95%) are patients admitted for COVID-19. The others are in the hospital for another reason, like having a baby. All women who come in to deliver a baby are tested, so they are included in the count if they have a positive test result.
