The number of cases of COVID-19 in north-central Minnesota did not change much Monday, June 1, with three more cases reported in Todd County and one more case reported in Morrison County.
The latest cases bring Todd’s total number to 319, while Morrison now has 47 reported.
A data adjustment made sometime last week meant a death originally attributed to a Cass County resident was reassigned to a different county. This brought the county’s death toll back down to two. Cass County Administrator Josh Stevenson said if cases are removed from the list, it was learned those people are not considered Cass County residents.
“We have found some errors between Cass County ND and Cass County MN data,” Stevenson said in an email. Cass County, North Dakota, is home to Fargo.
Data is for cases that were tested and returned positive. All data is preliminary and may change as cases are investigated. Many data points are collected during case interviews.
