"There's some good news here in Palo Alto County," began Mark Hunefeld, Palo Alto County Emergency Management, updating the Board of Supervisors on COVID-19 during Tuesday morning's conference call. "As of this morning we have tested 37 people with no positive cases."

Along with current numbers for Palo Alto County, Hunefeld provided the Board with information on surrounding counties as well.

"Kossuth County has tested 90 people with one confirmed case and that person has since recovered. Dickinson tested 98 with one confirmed case still in quarantine. Emmet County has tested 67 people with no confirmed cases. There was a positive case in the packing plant but they were not from Emmet County so they don't count towards Emmet. Clay County has tested 77 people with three confirmed cases - Two of those cases have recovered and one is quarantined. Those are still some pretty good numbers for us in the northwest, in this neck of the woods."

Hunefeld also mentioned a new test that will soon come to Palo Alto County.

"They are coming up with a new serology test, a blood test to show if you've been infected or not at one point in time. They've got testing equipment over in Clay County but no supplies to come with it so they haven't started it yet but it will be here locally in the near future.
