The Arizona Department of Health Services reported 2,781 cases on Thursday, the fourth consecutive day with fewer than 3,000 new infections.

Until Wednesday, the state’s seven-day case average hadn’t been below 4,000 since Dec. 30, when Arizona was first feeling the impact of the omicron variant of the virus.

The weekly case average for the omicron wave peaked at more than 20,000 on Jan. 24 and has plummeted since then.

In another milestone marking the decline of the omicron wave, the state’s hospitals had fewer than 2,000 inpatients with COVID on Wednesday for the first time since Nov. 8.
