Monday's daily total of newly confirmed cases of coronavirus in Arizona was less than 1,000 for the first time in four days. 

The Arizona Department of Health Services reported Monday 789 new cases of COVID-19 and 3  more known deaths. That brings the total number of confirmed cases statewide to nearly 28,000 and 1,047 known deaths. Last Friday, state health officials reported more than 1,500 new cases of the virus, the highest daily count by far since the outbreak began.
