Los Angeles County public health officials on Sunday reported 830 new coronavirus cases and four related deaths.

There have now been nearly 300,000 cases of the virus in L.A. County, and nearly 7,000 people have died. Statewide, California surpassed 900,000 confirmed cases of the virus Saturday, and more than 17,300 people have died.

Hospitalizations have ticked upward slightly in L.A., with the most recent three-day average reported by the county representing an increase of 8%, according to data from the Department of Public health.
