After snapping a string of six straight days with double-digit reports Thursday (9 new cases), the county Friday featured its ninth double-digit report in the last 11 days.

In the past 14 days, 208 new cases have been reported in Cumberland County, giving the county a per capita rate of 82.09 per 100,000 people for the 14-day period, the county's highest 14-day per-capita rate since the pandemic started.
