The new case numbers for COVID-19 show community spread of the disease continues to drop significantly — and quickly — in Gwinnett County, according to numbers released by the Georgia Department of Public Health on Monday.

The county has seen 452 cases per 100,000 residents in the last two weeks, according to the new numbers. A week earlier, on Feb. 7, the two-week number was 1,115 cases per 100,000 residents.
