The latest data released on Friday by the Gallatin City-County Health Department shows that 61 positive COVID-19 cases were added to our cumulative total. That’s the second-highest daily number we’ve recorded since the pandemic began back in March. The 65 daily cases recorded on October 1st is the highest daily number to date.

So, what demographics are showing the most cases right now in Gallatin County? According to the health department’s weekly COVID-19 surveillance report, those between the ages of 20-29 have shown the sharpest increase in cases. The ages of 30-39 and 10-19 are next. This is good news as those most susceptible to dying from the virus, according to the CDC, are those ages 70+.
