The Alabama Department of Public Health raised the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases to 1,842 on Monday.

A total of 12,298 people have been tested. 231 people have been hospitalized.

Jefferson County has the most cases per county with 418.

According to ADPH only Geneva County has not had a confirmed case of coronavirus.

The ADPH now verifies 32 deaths related to the coronavirus while a total of 45 deaths have been reported.

Reported deaths and verified deaths represent the number of individuals who have a positive lab result and are now deceased. To verify a person who died from COVID-19 disease, the medical record of the deceased person has to be reviewed by a physician and Infectious Disease and Outbreak staff. Once review is complete, if the death is attributed to COVID-19, the individual will also appear in the Verified Deaths category. Reported death totals are cumulative and will not decrease.

State officials opened a toll-free number for people who develop symptoms and need to be tested. For more on how to get tested, you can call 1-888-264-2256. This is not a medical helpline.
