The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Monroe County passed 1,000 on Sunday, according to figures from the county public health department.

The case count is an undercount of the prevalence of the virus in the community, largely because a limited testing capacity has forced health care providers to prioritize tests for certain groups of people.
