The Indiana State Department of Health on Monday reported 673 new COVID-19 cases, ending a four-day streak in which cases have topped 1,000. Case counts typically fall in Monday’s report because of slowed weekend reporting.
The department also reported the testing of 11,149 more individuals, marking the eighth time in the past 11 days that testing has exceeded 10,000. The department said the testing number was inflated by results from an additional 2,688 individuals tested from May 2 to Aug. 9 at a newly onboarded testing facility.
The 7-day testing-positivity rate dipped from 7.7% on Sunday to 7.3% on Monday. The state’s overall testing-positivity rate remained at 8.8%.
Marion County reported an increase of 103 cases, the 25th straight day that cases in the county have risen by more than 100. The county’s 7-day testing-positivity rate was 9.2%.
