Total cases: 200,111, up 2,690 from yesterday.

Hospitalization: 1,061, down from 1,073 reported on the summary yesterday, but the dashboard and summary numbers sometimes differ.

Said the governor:

I know everyone is getting ready for Christmas & the pandemic is the last thing we want to think about, but our new cases & high number of deaths should motivate us to protect our loved ones by wearing masks & social distancing. Just about everyone’s being careful. Keep it up.

The line is open.
