A total of 118 people were hospitalized with the coronavirus in the county, according to Monday’s report. There were 39 patients reported in intensive care units, and 45 available, staffed ICU beds.

Of 6,450 tests reported to the county’s Health and Human Services Agency Monday, 1% returned positive. The 14-day rolling average dipped to 1.5%.
