Los Angeles recorded 2,175 new coronavirus cases in the county, another single day high.
As in past reports, Health Director Barbara Ferrer attributed the spike to lagging test reports.
The daily case count is hard to interpret, Ferrer said, and indicated that the key metric for the county is hospitalization rates, which are steady at about 1,300 patients.
The average daily death rate is steadily decreasing and has gone from about 45 fatalities each day in early May to about 35 deaths now, Ferrer said. The rate in Los Angeles remains at about 8%.
While much of California continues to reopen business sectors, Los Angeles is lagging behind somewhat in a continued effort to mitigate new cases.
It is unclear if any of the cases might be linked to recent protests, but contact tracing efforts are continuing, Ferrer said.
