Health officials in Massachusetts confirmed 77 new deaths and 5,396 more cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.
There have now been 413,329 cases and 12,875 deaths confirmed since the pandemic began, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Another 276 deaths are considered probably linked to COVID-19, and there are more than 19,000 probable cases of the virus, per the state's COVID dashboard.
The percentage of coronavirus tests coming back positive, on average, fell again Sunday to 7.21%, the department said.
The number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 also dropped, to 2,225, though both the number of patients listed in intensive care units (459) and the number of people intubated (282) increased, according to the DPH.
Sunday's new numbers come after three straight days above 7,000 new cases. While the latest report had new numbers dipping slightly, the state continues to see high numbers as it deals with a post-holiday surge.

The temporary field hospital at the DCU Center in Worcester has seen more patients in 35 days than it did during the six weeks it was open when cases surged in Massachusetts in the spring.
The field hospital, which reopened early last month, has taken care of more than 300 patients in 35 days. Nearly 70 patients were being treated there on Friday, Peter Lancette, director of the field hospital's operations told The Telegram & Gazette.
"We're definitely seeing an increase in our admissions over the last couple of days,'' Lancette told the newspaper.
The facility treated 162 patients when it was open between April 9 and late May, Lancette said.
