Information on COVID-19 infection in seven Southern Arkansas counties and three Northern Louisiana parishes from relevant state health departments. The following figures for COVID-19 virus cases are current as of 6 a.m. Sunday.
Figures for Columbia County and six counties near Arkansas include the number of tests per 1,000 individuals, the positive PCR percentage rate, and the positive antigen percentage rate. PCR test results usually take a day or more to report to individuals. Antigen test results are immediate and the percentage of positive rates is much higher. This is because people referred for antigen analysis through local health units have already shown signs of infection.
(+) or (-) means changes in numbers since the last report.
These figures reflect the changes since our last report at 6pm on Saturday. Confirmed and probable cases in each category are combined into one number.
The numbers may increase or decrease as individual cases move between counties / parishes in the light of new information. Typing errors in this graph are corrected in the following days list.
