To date, the county has reported 39,048 confirmed cases of the virus and 2,224 probable cases for a total of 41,272 cases.

The county began reporting both probable and confirmed cases earlier this month at the request of the state health department. Probable cases, the county said, account for a variety of real-world situations and could highlight cases in the community that may otherwise go unreported.

The county's seven-day average of cases, including both confirmed and probable, rose Saturday from 244 cases per day to 245. The 14-day average dropped from 386 per day to 300 per day.

Of the county's cases, 71% of those who have died were over 65. Those aged 25 to 44 make up the largest percentage of people with COVID-19 at 38%.
