SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — State and local health officials continue to track the latest COVID-19 cases and deaths in Georgia.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is now updating the state’s data online once a day at 3 p.m. to “allow time to process and validate laboratory and case reports.” Officials at DPH say they do not have an accurate way to track recoveries at this time.

News 3 has learned the identity of three Coastal Empire residents who tested positive for the virus. Read their stories:

St. Joseph’s/Candler, Memorial Health and Winn Army Community Hospital have all reported they are treating or have treated patients with COVID-19.

While the Coastal Health District, which covers much of WSAV’s viewing area, noted that the number of cases is important to the public, a spokeswoman urged people “not focus so much on the exact number, but recognize that the virus is here.”

“The coronavirus can spread even without symptoms, so whether an area has two or three or 20 cases, social distancing is important and we all have a responsibility to take precautions,” said Ginger Heidel.
