As of the start of this month, there were about 108 cases reported each day on average, according to the OC Health Care Agency.
The last time the county saw a figure that low was at the start of May of last year.
The current average figure is down from the peak of 3,500 average cases seen in January, and from the prior summer surge last year, when nearly 900 cases were reported each day on average.
Newport Beach appears to be experiencing a new slight surge in cases, with 6.6 new cases per 100,000 residents reported in the past two weeks. That’s the fourth highest level in the county; Los Alamitos has the highest number of new cases, with 7.9 per 100,000 residents.
