There could be more cases in any of these areas. The county is still investigating 505 possible COVID-19 cases and hasn’t yet released information on where those patients live in the county.
And due to the limited availability of COVID-19 tests, officials have said there are many more people infected with the novel coronavirus than are represented in these numbers.

Of the 4,071 patients with positive COVID-19 tests, 879 have been hospitalized.
