OHA has also released its weekly testing summary, showing that for the week of June 28 to July 5, nearly 40,000 tests were conducted. Of those tests, 5.3% were positive. The number of tests conducted has been increasing, but the test positivity rate has also increased significantly since late May, OHA said.

The increase in COVID-19 cases is due in part to counties being in phase one and two of reopening. Recent large outbreaks around the state have also contributed to the spike, OHA said.
