On Tuesday, the Chambers County EMA reported the latest COVID-19 numbers, where they indicated an increase in Chambers County.

+422 in the last 7 days(+407 cases the week of the 18th, + 451 cases the week of the 12th, +167 cases on the 6th) 7-day test totals: 176 positives(174 the previous 7 days & 188 positives the week before) These are NAAT tests only – other tests performed are not included in test total but ARE included in total cases reported per county – this count is likely higher since so many are taking at home tests”, said Chambers EMA Deputy Director Kathy Hornsby.
