The state Department of Health Service's coronavirus dashboard also reported that 2,209 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 as of Wednesday, including 523 in beds in intensive-care units.

Seven-day rolling averages of new cases and COVID-19 positive tests in Arizona increased in the past two weeks while the rolling average of daily deaths declined,. That's according to data from The COVID Tracking Project and Johns Hopkins University analyzed by The Associated Press.

The rolling average for new cases rose from 2,076 on Nov. 11 to 3,964 on Wednesday and the positivity average went from 15.1% to 20.1% as the average of new deaths went from 24.1 to 22.7.
