Neighboring County Sees Confirmed COVID-19 Cases Triple in Two Days

Wright County’s number of confirmed COVID-19 continues to rise, but the numbers have remained relatively low – as of this morning’s announcement from the Minnesota Department of Health, Wright County has 42 confirmed cases – an increase of seven over the last two days.

However, neighboring Stearns County has seen a significant spike to its numbers. On Tuesday, Stearns County had 86 confirmed COVID-19 cases. That number shot up to 166 Wednesday (an increase of 80) to 267 at today’s MDH update (an increase of 101).

Some of the increases being seen around the state have been attributed to more testing being done, but the jump in the Stearns County numbers are troubling in the rapid rate in which they are growing.

Gov. Tim Walz will hold a press briefing at 2 p.m. today to announce his plans dealing with the current stay at home order, which is scheduled to end Monday, May 4.
