Meanwhile, the Allen County Department of Health reports another 36 residents tested positive for COVID-19. The death toll was unchanged at 132.

However, 33 cases were removed from the county’s numbers after data reconciling from the state. Those cases were either duplicate entries or cases with residents from other counties. Total positive cases in Allen County now stand at 2,866 with the update.

The state and county numbers may not align due to delays in private lab reporting to the state.
