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.
