New coronavirus cases in Shelby County rose by only 26 from Tuesday to Wednesday, the lowest new case count recorded in weeks. New tests fell, too, as only 613 were given Tuesday. (Monday's test count was low, too, at 719.)

Tuesday's testing put the day's positivity rate at around 4 percent. Health officials say this number needs to stay below 10 percent. So far, a total of 35,228 coronavirus tests have been given here. The death toll rose by one to 58.
