A total of 7,008 cases were reported during the week compared to 4,996 cases identified the previous week, a 40% increase. These are only the cases reported to county or hospital sites. As the proliferation of at-home tests has increased, the actual number of infections is likely higher.
The HHSA reported five COVID-related deaths Thursday, increasing the county’s cumulative totals from throughout the pandemic to 775,369 infections and 5,282 deaths.
The county only reports COVID-19 data on Mondays and Thursdays.
