    2 Residents +

    0 NonResidents +

    0% ...this is what was reported, but I think there is an error. (I am not a math person)

    Well at least the number of positive cases was much lower But these were Sunday numbers right? I guess let's all hope for a start of a new trend this week!

    I would need to know the number of people that were tested. My guess is that they round off to the nearest percentage. In NY they had as low as 0.44% which if they were rounding down it would be 0%. If it were 0.55 and rounding it would be 1%.

    Ok got it. They tested 415 and if you divide 2 by 415 mathematically it comes out to 0.48% so they are rounding off to percentage. In prior numbers you never saw 10.5% 15.7% etc they would just round up or down.

    If let's say 4 people tested positive out of the 415 that would come out to 0.96% and they would probably round off to 1%.
