ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Monroe County Department of Public Health officials reported 322 new COVID-19 cases Monday, bringing the county’s seven-day rolling average to 563 new cases per day.

Officials say the county’s seven-day rolling average positivity rate is now 7.3%.

While 322 new cases is the lowest number reported since November 27, health officials say it’s due to a decrease in tests processed over the weekend.

“The decrease in new cases today coincides with a significant reduction in tests reported by laboratories over the weekend,” health department officials said in a Monday press release. “A separate table detailing the number of tests reported follows the age/gender breakdown table.”
