No deaths to report for a total of 29 deaths 

BFHD is not including deaths that do not meet our definition of a COVID death.  They may show on the dashboard until DOH reconciles data.

Benton-Franklin Health District provides regular updates on case counts for Benton and Franklin Counties. 

Our goal is to share reliable information with the public and our partners. We have developed a new dashboard and data tables to help you visualize the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Updates to case count will only be posted Monday-Friday by 2 p.m.  Information received or completed over the weekend will be reflected in the Monday update. 

We report case numbers each day that are official through 11:59 p.m. the night before

We are committed to providing accurate information while respecting the medical privacy of those who become ill with COVID-19.
