DOH reports 1,282 new COVID-19 cases, 35 deaths over the weekend

The state Department of Health reported 1,282 cases of COVID-19 and 35 additional deaths related to disease this weekend.

DOH reported 530 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday after reporting 752 cases on Saturday. The department reported 18 additional deaths on Sunday and 17 additional deaths on Saturday.
