The Arizona Department of Health Services Friday reported the highest single-day gain in COVID-19 cases since documentation began in January.

The Friday ADHS report shows 1,654 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours. That eclipses the previous single-day high of 1,579 new cases reported one week ago, June 5.

In all, ADHS has documented 32,918 positive test results in Arizona since Jan. 26, with nearly 13,000 of those new cases coming in the first 11 days of June.

There have been 88 documented positive COVID-19 tests in the Verde Valley, according to Yavapai County Community Health Services (See full county report below.)

ADHS also reported 17 deaths in the past 24 hours, pushing Arizona’s death count to 1,144.

Through June 12, ADHS has reported 12,795 new COVID-19 cases and 234 coronavirus-related deaths. By comparison, in May, Arizona gained 12,475 new cases and 597 deaths.

It took the state 64 days to document Arizona’s first 1,000 COVID-19 cases. Seventy-five days later, Arizona has added more than 31,000 new cases.

Yavapai County

Yavapai County Community Health Services’ Friday morning report shows 368 confirmed positive tests with 194 patients who have now recovered from the virus. There have been seven deaths reported in Yavapai County.

YCCHS reports 88 cases in the Sedona-Verde Valley region: 32 confirmed in Cottonwood, 22 in Sedona, 22 in Camp Verde and 12 throughout the rest of the Verde Valley. There are 122 confirmed cases at the Mingus Mountain Academy girls school.

YCCHS reports 14,127 people in Yavapai County have been tested for COVID-19 with 97.4% of those being negative.

Women outpace men by a 244-124 margin for positive COVID-19 tests in Yavapai County, according to YCCHS.

“Yavapai County’s positive rate may be the lowest in the state, but we have seen additional cases each day this week,” said YCCHS Public Health Coordinator Terri Farneti. “YCCHS asks all Yavapai County residents to comply to protect yourself, your families, friends and neighbors from COVID-19, by physically distancing, wearing a mask when being physically distancing isn’t possible – and in public places. Practice good hygiene: Wash your hands, especially after touching any frequently used item or surface. Avoid touching your face. Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow. Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible including your phone.”
