There's some promising news about the COVID-19 pandemic in Athens-Clarke County.
ACC officials say that the number of cases per 100,000 dropped dramatically over the past week - from nearly 75 cases per 100,000 residents down to 60 cases per 100,000.
Another good piece of news - the number of hospitalizations also decreased from 18 to 9 over the last week.
Not all of the news is positive, however. Three new deaths were reported by ACC, bringing the county's total number of COVID deaths to 178.
