Northwest Iowa — The four northwesternmost Iowa counties have seen a net increase of 31 cases of COVID-19 in the 24-hour period ending at noon on Thursday, according to the latest statistics from the Iowa Department of Public Health.

Lyon County reported one more case, for a total of 20. Sioux County is up twenty-seven cases at 180. O’Brien County is up two at 23. And Osceola County is up one for a total of 30.

Again, these numbers are raw numbers and do not take into account how many people have recovered.

No deaths from COVID-19 have been reported in these counties.

Due to extensive testing in Sioux County, the density of cases in that county has surpassed the density of cases in Osceola County. Sioux County is now at 516 cases per 100,000, and Osceola is at 497 per 100,000. The other two counties in our area are in the 160s for density.
