In the latest figures, Hartlepool has seen the biggest rise, with 26 new cases, closely followed by Stockton, with 24.
Middlesbrough saw an increase of 18, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 5 new cases.
The Mobile Covid-19 Testing Unit will once again be available at Kirkleatham Walled Garden today and tomorrow.
If you experience a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste you should self-isolate immediately and arrange to get a test by dialling 119 or visiting the NHS website.
You should only book a test if you are showing Coronavirus symptoms, and make sure that you have booked a test before arriving at the Mobile Testing Unit.
A female member of staff has been threatened with a hammer in an alleged early-morning armed robbery in our area.
Cleveland Police officers were called to an off licence in Dormanstown just before 7.20 on Monday morning.
Police say that two men entered the store and threatened a female staff member with a hammer during the incident.
The pair then stole alcohol and cash before making off in a vehicle.
The woman was left shaken but physically unharmed.
Police followed a vehicle to Grangetown where two men - aged 27 and 29 - were arrested at around 8.30am.
A weapon was also recovered.
Officers from Redcar CID later charged two men, and they both appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.
