32 additional cases of COVID-19 were confirmed among Lubbock County residents Sunday. This is the lowest single-day tally since 10 cases last Sunday. See new cases reported by day here. 442 cases were added from last Sunday through yesterday, an average of 63 per day. 

There are currently 661 active cases. 608 people have received a positive result and since recovered. The death toll remains at 51.

Nearly 39 percent of all local cases are in people age 20 to 29. And 24 of the 32 new cases are in this age group, which continues the weeklong trend that people in their 20s have driven the recent spike.

There was also a record number of tests administered this week. Through Sunday 30,773 tests have been performed since mid-March locally. 1,705 of these have returned a positive, which is 5.5 percent. Some of these tests are for people who live in other counties.

The percentage of total tests returning a positive has climbed from about 4.7 percent a couple weeks ago. Last week city leaders said the state's goal is to keep this rate below 6 percent. Isolating to just the past day, the additional 32 cases is 3.8 percent of the 852 additional tests; however, this figure may be off slightly, since the additional case count is for Lubbock County residents, while the additional test count could include residents of other counties.
