ESCANABA — Local health data showed virus activity in the past week declining in Delta County while rising in Menominee County.
Delta County on Tuesday had 26 confirmed positives since Nov. 16, nine fewer than the previous week, while Menominee County had 20 cases, six more than the week before, according to numbers posted Tuesday on the Public Health of Delta and Menominee Counties website.
Delta County also had 19 probable cases and Menominee County seven probable for the six-day period. Neither county reported a virus-related death.

The PHDM has announced it will end updating COVID-19 case data on its website Nov. 30. “This case data includes positive laboratory results and health care provider reports of COVID-19 cases, but does not include the results of at-home tests. With at-home tests widely available and frequently used, the case data PHDM has been reporting no longer reflects the actual number of COVID-19 cases in the community,” the PHDM posted on its website.
