Galveston County Health District today reports 53 additional positive COVID-19 cases and 60 additional recoveries. All cases reported in todayís update are current.
To date, 195,733 tests have been administered in Galveston County.
Please note, the positivity rate for the week of Oct. 25 is now 5 percent, down from the 13 percent reported earlier this week. This is due to a large number of negative test results being reported to the health district. Those results reflected tests that were collected the week of Oct. 25, which accounts for the decrease in positivity rate.
