Be aware that some testing is being done by the Department of Public Health, some by private labs, and there may be a lag before DPH receives the latter. The total positives shown here reflect results from both. Non-residents may also be tested in Ben Hill County. Those numbers are included in the total number of tests, but the only positives shown here are Ben Hill County residents.
This information will be updated daily at 5 pm. Keep in mind that updates can only be made as information is made available. For answers to your most frequently asked questions about these numbers, please visit our FAQ page.
