Nearly 10,300 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since March.
The latest breakdown of cases by age group shows that while most hospitalizations have been among elderly people with COVID-19, children and adults under the age of 30 have made up nearly a third of all confirmed virus cases in the state.
More than 400 cases have been reported in communal living settings like prisons, shelters, and nursing homes. About half of the 300 available state-funded quarantine rooms are currently occupied, according to a new COVID-19 data dashboard.
