Today is Tuesday, June 30.

No deaths were reported in the state's daily coronavirus update, the first time in months there were no fatalities related to COVID-19. The death toll stood at 8,054 for the second straight day.

The Department of Public Health's daily report said the fatality total declined due to "data cleaning." It said it had removed duplicate deaths, which are often caused by typing errors.

There were 114 newly confirmed and probable cases of the virus, bringing the total to 108,882.
