"On a better note, we are removing one from the list of active patients," the release said.

There are currently 44 cases, with 34 recovered, nine active and one death.

The department advises to continue avoiding large crowds, people speaking in loud voices (research has found that loud vocalizations tend to spread more virus droplets and quieter voices spread less viral droplets, its a matter of velocity of the droplets how far they spread).

It also says to continue washing your hands.

The Cole County Health Department reported two more confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.

There are now 67 total confirmed cases, according to its website.
