Latest figures show 156 new positive tests have been confirmed across Teesside on Sunday.
Middlesbrough recorded the highest daily rise with 45 new cases.
Stockton had 40 new cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 39.
Police are appealing for information following an arson attack in Middlesbrough.
The incident happened around 8:10am on Friday morning on Thornton Street in North Ormesby when someone threw a petrol bomb at the front window of the property.
The suspect is believed to have been wearing dark clothing.
Fortunately, neither of the occupants who were in the property at the time were injured.
Any witnesses or anyone with private CCTV footage which could assist the investigation is asked to contact Detective Constable John Smith from Middlesbrough CID on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.
At around twenty to one yesterday lunchtime the team received a request to rescue a dog that had become stuck on a crag near to the disused Mount Snever Observatory, approximately two miles south-east of Sutton Bank.
The dog was reportedly 10-15 feet from the top and the owner was at that time unable to reach it.
Two Team Land Rovers and a number of our volunteer members, some of them skilled in ‘technical’ rope rescues were deployed.
However, at around 1.15 we were advised that the dog had been recovered safe and well by the owner’s walking group with assistance from a passer-by so we were able to stand-down.
