Director Dr. Matt Richardson has said multiple times that DCPH only rules a resident’s death as a COVID-19 death if it is determined that the person died as a result of COVID-19, not when someone has COVID-19 but dies primarily of another cause.

The health department reports 2,831 active COVID-19 cases in the county, a number that was declining swiftly a few months ago but is now declining at a much slower rate.
