The health department now reports 1,449 total positive cases in Adams County, with 147 active, 37 hospitalized ranging in age from their teens to their 90s, five in intensive care and now 14 deaths.

The preliminary seven-day positivity rate for cases as a percent of total tests remains high at 11.39%.
