Arizona health officials on Sunday reported 1,804 new COVID-19 cases and 25 additional deaths. The latest numbers increased the state’s pandemic totals to 807,967 cases and 15,505 known deaths.

Pima county reported 247 new cases today, with 3 new deaths. Cochise County had 40 new cases with 32 new deaths,
