San Miguel County is still sheltering in place. The count for residents who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus has risen to 11, and most of the people who have taken the antibody blood tests are still waiting on results. Thus far, 1,631 tests have been processed; eight were positive, 25 were indeterminate (borderline), and 1,598 were negative.
