ROYCE JONES: Good evening, and thanks for joining us. I'm Royce Jones. This spring surge of COVID-19 appears to be upon us. Today, the county reported 653 new cases.

That's the most this week and the most in a single day since the middle of January when we saw that post-holiday spike. Now, taking a look at the statewide numbers, there were more than 5,300 additional cases. The positivity rate is up and hovering just under 10%. The bright side, more than 3.6 million people have had, at least, one dose of the vaccine, and nearly two million people are considered fully vaccinated.
