The seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases continues to flatten, declining to 603 cases on Monday, the lowest mark since April 5, but still up 137 cases from a month ago. 

The Department of Health Services reported 367 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, the lowest one-day mark since April 5 as well.

Just over 42% of residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Just under 32% have completed the vaccine series. 

Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine will be made available to the public again. The 11-day pause initiated after a rare blood-clotting disorder was associated with the shot was lifted on Friday.

Officials with the state’s health department said Monday that they anticipate final clinical details for providers to be posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday.
