With Delaware COVID-19 infection rates higher than they were a month ago, health officials are urging people to be tested whether they have symptoms or not.

One reason: People who test negative help pull the state’s average down, which moves the state closer to reopening. Another: People who test positive let the state see where problems might be and help tackle them.

The state has seen a total of 20,085 positive cases since March 11, according to the state Division of Public Health. The seven-day average for the percentage of persons who tested positive dropped slightly last week to 6.7% as of Thursday. The state would like it at 3%, and it was trending down last month.

The number of new daily cases each day last week remained elevated. In addition, 53 people are hospitalized, down five from 58 reported the previous week. Eleven of the hospitalized are critically ill.

A total of 631 Delawareans have died due to complications from COVID-19.
