COVID

COVID-19 infection information for 21 South Arkansas and eight Northeast Texas counties, and eight 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 seven selected Arkansas counties closest to Columbia County 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.

Arkansas figures are from the Arkansas Department of Health website. ADH has a call center to answer questions from health care providers and the public about the novel coronavirus. From 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., call 1-800-803-7847 or email ADH.CoronaVirus@arkansas.gov. After normal business hours and weekend calls, call 1-800-554-5738. magnoliareporter.com encourages the public to get COVID-19 information from long-established and reliable sources of information, and not from social media sites or posts of people who lack medical expertise.
