It’s also a steep drop off from the peak of 862 average new cases seen in the week ending July 11.

The HCA reports average new cases with a delay in order to prevent significant changes to data, as new cases can be inputted later due to testing reporting delays.

133 new cases were reported Monday, with no new deaths. There have been 53,448 cumulative cases in OC to date, and 1,216 deaths.
