5 of the cases are hospitalized. Statewide cases of the virus since March now total 22,987, with 9,980 of those designated as recovered.

The county's ethnic breakdown states that 44.2% of county residents diagnosed with the disease don't have a specified ethnicity, while 37.8% are Hispanic and 18% are non-Hispanic.
