The department also confirmed the death of a Grand Forks County man in his 50s. Like the vast majority of North Dakotans who have succumbed to the illness, the man had underlying health conditions, according to the department.
The department says 143 North Dakotans have died from the illness. Seventy-seven of the deaths have come in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. There still are four deaths that remain in a “presumed positive” category, which means a medical professional determined that COVID-19 was a cause of death but the person was not tested for the illness while he or she was alive.
About 5.9% of the 1,920 test results announced Monday came back positive, but 9.2% of residents tested for the first time received a positive result.
North Dakota does not report a seven-day rolling average for positivity rate as many other states do, but Forum News Service calculated the rate to be 11% for tests taken on previously untested residents. It’s the highest such rate this month.
