The Florida Department of Health reported 20 new cases of COVID-19 and one additional death in Collier County on Tuesday.

The death verified Tuesday was identified as an 80-year-old woman who had contact with a known case and whose positive case was counted on Aug. 31.

Collier County's cumulative total of COVID-19 fatalities is 193, according to the state.

The new cases increased Collier's overall total to 12,254 Tuesday. The seven-day average for cases declined to 30 through Monday, less than half of the seven-day average on Sept. 1 (63). 

While Collier County is 10th among Florida counties in COVID-19 cases, it is only 21st in total tests (74,884). Every other county in the top 10 in cases is among the top nine in total tests. Collier's seven-day average for reported COVID-19 tests declined to 551 through Monday, 41% fewer than the seven-day average on Aug. 1 (940) and 63% fewer than the county's peak average on July 17 (1,474). 

Collier's overall positivity rate declined to 16.36% Tuesday. The seven-day average positivity rate rose to 6.48% through Monday.

A total of 886 people in Collier County have been hospitalized for COVID-19 as of Tuesday, according to the report, but that number does not reflect the people currently in the hospital, according to the Florida Department of Health. 

As of approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday, there were 32 COVID-19 patients in Collier County hospitals, according to data from Florida's Agency for Healthcare Administration. That's the same number of patients that was reported at approximately the same time Monday. The county also had 21.3% of its total hospital beds available and 35.1% of its adult ICU beds available, according to the AHCA. Florida's available percentages were 24.9% (hospital beds) and 23.1% (ICU beds), respectively.
