The Northeast Health District added 64 confirmed COVID-19 cases on Sunday with the release of the Department of Public Health Daily Status Report, the smallest number of cases added since 50 were recorded on July 12.
Sunday usually is a light day of reporting, but 99 cases were added a week ago, and the seven-day rolling average of added cases dropped to 128.9 on Sunday from 133.9 on Saturday.
The Daily Status Report also listed no new deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the 10-county Northeast Health District on Sunday, and the seven-day rolling average of added deaths was 1.0, up from 0.9 on Saturday.
On Sunday of last week the Department of Public Health had removed from the list one death previously reported in the Northeast Health District.
Every county in the Northeast Health District except Greene added at least one confirmed COVID-19 case on Sunday.
Oconee County added two cases, and Clarke County added 10.
In the last 21 days, Oconee County has added 157 cases and Clarke County has added 735. These numbers are broad indicators of the number of active cases in the two counties.

The Sunday total number of added cases was more than 2,000 less than on Friday.
