The county noted on its website Wednesday there could be a spike in the number of deaths over the next few days due to staff’s work to validate and clean its data.
Though the county recorded 26 deaths Wednesday, that was a two-day total, as the county did not report numbers Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday.
The seven-day average of new deaths has been trending downwards, from a high of 15.1 on July 25 to 0.7 last week before the spike.
Data released by the state Sunday show the number of COVID-19 patients in county hospitals is at 190, down from a peak of more than 600 in late July.
Here are the latest numbers, according to county and state public health officials.
