Numbers vary from state and health departments because of data lags.

Cole County is reporting double-digit active COVID-19 cases for the first time in several weeks.

The number of people in hospitals and on ventilators with COVID-19 each dropped by one on Monday, according figures from the health department. Burke County Public Health reported a total of 1,016 COVID-19 cases, an increase of 19 since the last update. The cause of death has not been determined, and Grand County is not releasing much information about the individual.

Four ZIP codes in the county now have 30 or more cases.

Monroe County records one new COVID-19 death
All are listed as in managed isolation and quarantine except for the two sisters, who are in the Hutt Valley with their family. There are now currently three active COVID-19 cases in Marshall County and six active cases in Bureau County.

None of the new cases were linked to long-term care facilities. Also, the health department reportedly conducted an initial investigation and reached out to people who have been deemed high risk contacts with guidance.

The amount of cases Black and Hispanic Thurston County residents is still disproportionate to their population. Hispanic people make up nine percent of the county and 20 percent of cases.

The 14th COVID-19-related death was reported in Catawba County Monday (June 29).

New Mexico's recent uptick in new coronavirus cases continued Tuesday, as state health officials announced 168 new confirmed cases of the virus statewide. So far in the county, 47 cases have been confirmed and one person has died. Esmond, Malta, Shabbona, Waterman and Maple Park each report one to five cases.
