Although COVID-19 cases from this most recent surge, driven by the omicron, are seemingly dropping, Mower County has lost three more people to the pandemic.

According to the Minnesota Department of Health on Friday, of the 38 Minnesotans who died in the new report, three were from Mower County. That comes amid news that 44 cumulative new cases were reported in the county Friday.

Mower now has had a total of 11,318 cumulative cases since the start of the pandemic along with 63 total deaths.

Even still, news from the state as a whole seems to be a little more optimistic with 6,617 cumulative cases Friday, down from the point where over 10,000 cases were reported daily as part of this most recent surge.
