On August 24th, St. Joseph County recorded 154 new COVID-19 cases. This is the second highest daily case count for the county, surpassed only by Aug. 20th when 177 new cases were recorded. This spike in numbers is a result of the testing at Notre Dame now being reflected in the state data. The spike to some extent syncs up with the timing of when ND moved to online instruction due to the coronavirus outbreaks within the university community.
The latest info from Notre Dame's COVID-19 Dashboard indicates that yesterday 30 new cases were reported. That brings the university's total number of cases to 471.
