The total case count was boosted by 1,302, the Health Department said, because of the way the state is now counting reinfection cases. Under the new guidelines, anyone who tests positive at least 90 days apart will be counted more than once when the numbers are reported.

The state has always had information about who had been reinfected, but the previous reporting guidelines only required first-time cases to be reported.

The county-wide death toll stands at 2,383.
