Northeast Heath District Joins The State In Reporting Large Numbers of COVID-19 Cases And Deaths

***Rolling Averages Of Cases And Deaths Increase In Region***

The 10-county Northeast Health District does not always reflect the general patterns of the state when the Department of Public Health releases its Daily Status Report on COVID-19 each day, but it did so on Tuesday.

The day the state recorded a record 137 deaths, the Northeast Health District recorded two–not a record number, but enough to push the seven-day rolling average of added deaths to 1.9, a level last reached on July 16.
