The state now has a total of 4,914 cases and 131 deaths. 909 patients are currently hospitalized.
“Our number of positives went up about 29%, which is probably more than we’ve seen in the past and a little disturbingly, the percentage of tests that resulted in people positive spiked up at 64%,” Lamont added.
