MCPHERSON – The new numbers are out and according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), McPherson County still has seven (7) facilities listed as Cluster Exposure Facilities, though who the seven facilities has changed, in particular in the long term care facilities.

Looking at Wednesday numbers one finds that the positivity testing rate per 1,000 tests rose again within McPherson County as well.

McPherson County now lists just one college, one healthcare, and one manufacturing company, but among the long-term facilities the county now has four (4) facilities listed.

Good news is that both Central Christian College in McPherson and Pine Village of Moundridge are no longer on the listing while McPherson Health and Rehab plus Pleasant View of Inman have been added to the listing.

Overall, the seven (7) facilities listed total 70 active cases with each facility having to have at least five (5) onsite active cases reported within the past 14 days.

Those McPherson County Facilities listed are:

Bethany College in Lindsborg with five (5) current active cases.

MCDS of McPherson with five (5) current active cases.

Bethany Village Long-Term Care in Lindsborg with fourteen (14) current active cases.

Other COVID-19 UPDATE numbers showing up on the KDHE Wednesday reports concerning McPherson County include:

  • Latest numbers show McPherson County has 52.4 positive tests per 1,000 tests taken which is a slight increase over the previous report (the state of Kansas is currently showing an average of 55.63 positive cases per 1,000 tests).
