***Rolling Averages Of Added Cases Drop In District, Oconee, Clarke***

The Northeast Health District added 237 cases of COVID-19 on Sunday with the release of the Department of Public Health Daily Status Report. The Report contained no new added deaths in the District from the disease.

The District actually added 238 confirmed cases of COVID-19 based on molecular tests, but the District had a net loss of one case based on antigen tests, reflecting the irregularity of laboratory reporting on the weekends and following the Friday holiday.
