Health care and public officials are warning people that numbers may seem down for confirmed COVID-19 cases but that may be an impact of the holiday and they may come back even higher as testing catches up.
The state COVID-19 response tracking map update this morning listed 369 new cases in the state, bringing the total to 62,198 confirmed cases, but officials say that number could climb as testing delayed by the Thanksgiving holiday catches up.
The total today is 2,402 more than the update from Friday, which reported 148 cases confirmed Thursday — the Thanksgiving holiday.
