COVID-19 infection information for seven South Arkansas counties and three North Louisiana parishes from respective state health departments. The following figures for COVID-19 virus cases are current through 6 p.m. Friday.

The figures for Columbia County and six nearby Arkansas counties include the number of tests per 1,000 individuals, the PCR percent positive rate, and the antigen percent positive rate. PCR test results usually take a day or more to be reported to individuals. Antigen test results are instant and percentage of positive rates are much higher. This is because people referred for antigen tests through local health units have already shown signs of infection.

(+) or (-) means changes in numbers since last report.

These figures reflect changes since our last regional report at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 2. Confirmed and probable cases in each category are combined into one number.

Numbers may go up or down as individual cases are shifted between counties/parishes in light of new information. Typographical errors on this chart are corrected in the following day’s list.
