CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) was notified Friday of 23 new positive COVID-19 tests in Cleveland residents, bringing the total confirmed cases in the city to 282.
There have been two COVID-19 related deaths reported in Cleveland.
The new cases include both males and females, whose ages range from less than 10-years-old to in their 90s, the city of Cleveland said.
CDPH is working to identify those who may have come into close contact with the residents who tested positive for potential testing or monitoring, according to CDPH.
The Department of Public Safety and Department of Building & Housing thanked the IX Center, which the city said recently donated a large sum of rain ponchos to the departments in an effort to keep them safe on the frontlines.
