With the latest numbers, the county’s case total during the pandemic rose to 361,039. The death toll remained at 4,113.
The drop in local COVID numbers mirrors the national trend. A Reuters tally shows there were a little more than 100,000 reported cases on average each day recently. That’s 40% of the peak infection rate in January.
The January numbers reflected last winter’s pandemic surge, followed by a new spate of infections due to the Delta variant over the summer.
