The West Piedmont Health District reported that 18 cases of COVID-19 were identified on Tuesday.
Along with the update, the district's Population Health Manager, Nancy Bell, announced she will no longer be reporting cases via email daily.
This means that only the number, not the gender or age, of those who test positive for the coronavirus will be reported.
“We are eliminating this step due to workload increases,” Bell said.
There were 10 cases identified Tuesday in Henry County; six males and four females ranging from ages of 5 to 90.

A Franklin County woman in her 20s was also reported.
