San Diego County reported 125 new cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths Tuesday as hospitalizations and case rates remained steady.

Of 10,120 tests reported Tuesday, 1% returned positive and the county's 14-day rolling average remained 1.5%.

Coronavirus-related hospitalizations in the county increased by one to 156 from Monday, while patients with COVID-19 in intensive care units increased by three to 46 from Monday's 43. There were 55 available, staffed ICU beds in the county.

Tuesday's data increased the county's cumulative total to 278,307 cases, with the death toll remaining at 3,725.

The county has received 3,680,575 doses of coronavirus vaccine and has administered 3,204,616 of them.

A total of 1,740,571 people have received one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, 86.3% of the way toward reaching the county's goal of vaccinating 75% of San Diego County residents 16 and older, or 2,017,011 people.
