ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials from the Monroe County Department of Health reported 676 new COVID-19 cases on Friday.

Officials also reported no new deaths, keeping the county’s total to 766 to date.

Monroe County is now averaging 538 new cases per day over the past week and the seven-day rolling average positivity rate is now 7.5%, the lowest number reported since December 8 (7.45%).
