The Northeast Health District added 85 confirmed COVID-19 cases on Monday, the fewest it has added per day in more than a week, and the seven-day rolling average of added cases dropped to 158.6 from 160.4 on Sunday.
Mondays usually are light days in reporting cases to the Department of Public Health for its Daily Status Report, but the 85 cases compared with 98 a week earlier.
Every county in the 10-county Northeast Health District added cases, but Oconee County added only two and Clarke County added 24. Clarke County has added 486 new COVID-19 cases in the last two weeks, while Oconee County has added 102.
The Daily Status Report listed no new deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the Northeast Health District on Monday, the third day in a row without a death, and the seven-day rolling average of added deaths remained unchanged at 0.6.
The Department of Public Health still has not included in the Daily Status Report a death at a Clarke County personal care home that the Department of Community Health listed on Friday in its Long-Term Care Facility Report.
The Long-Term Care Facility Report for Monday listed six new COVID-19 cases among residents of a Clarke County nursing home, University Nursing and Rehab Center on Epps Bridge Road, which has reported 34 COVID-19 Positive Residents and 13 COVID-19 Positive Staff over time.
The Department of Community Health listed two new COVID-19 Positive Staff on Monday, one at a nursing home in Barrow County and the other at a nursing home in Elbert County.

The seven-day rolling average of added cases dropped from 3,661.6 on Sunday to 3,573.1 on Monday.
The Daily Status Report listed only two deaths attributed to COVID-19, the fewest deaths reported since July 4, and the seven-day rolling average of added deaths dropped from 49.1 on Sunday to 47.9 on Monday.
One of the deaths occurred on Saturday and the other on Sunday.
The Department of Community Health listed 603 long-term care facilities with COVID-19 among their residents and/or staff, down from 606 the day before.
Long-term care facilities are supposed to remain on the list even if they no longer have residents or staff with COVID-19, but the Department of Community Health does not check on or verify reports provided by the long-term care facilities.
The Department of Public Health now publishes the Long-Term Care Facility Report based on the data gathered electronically by the Department of Community Health, but it also does not verify the data and includes deaths selectively from the Long-Term Care Facility Report in the Daily Status Report.
The Georgia Emergency Management Agency on Monday listed 3,111 Current Confirmed COVID-19 Hospitalizations in its Situation Report COVID-19, up from 3,069 on Sunday.
