Avoyelles had considerably fewer test results in its Wednesday COVID update from the state health department, but had a high positive rate among those results.
The problem with a "no show" Monday is the "catch up" Tuesday. The result of yesterday's 17 tests and two new cases for Avoyelles Parish was a record-setting 889 test results with 88 new cases.
As has been the recent trend, Monday had very little change in Avoyelles Parish's COVID numbers.
As might be expected, taking a COVID test was not high on people's "things to do" list for the start of 2021. Of the 222 tests for Jan. 1-3 in Avoyelles Parish, 24 were positive.
Thursday's one-day COVID numbers were not as high as Wednesday's, but still showed a double-digit increase in new cases for Avoyelles Parish.
