The surge of new COVID-19 cases that was seen in late December and early January has fallen off significantly in the last few weeks, according to numbers from the Georgia Department of Public Health.

DPH reported on Wednesday that Gwinnett had seen 767 new COVID cases per 100,000 residents over the last two weeks. That is about half of what it was one week earlier, when the two-week rate was 1,522 new cases for every 100,000 residents.
