BEMIDJI -- The number of active coronavirus cases being currently tracked by Beltrami County Public Health has fallen below 40, but there are still dozens of individuals being monitored by the agency.
On Tuesday, Beltrami County Public Health Director Cynthia Borgen said there were 37 cases being monitored by her department. The county has had active cases in the high 30s or more since the start of July.
"In these last three weeks, soon after the Fourth of July, we had a significant surge and it continued to ramp up," Borgen said. "Now, that situation appears to be calming a little bit."
