The County is also reporting 19 new cases today, bringing our total number of confirmed cases to 321. Because of limited testing capacity, the number of confirmed cases almost certainly represents a small fraction of the total number of persons with COVID-19 in the County. We continue to work closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of California Department of Public Health, and other partners as the new coronavirus situation continues to change. Individuals and organizations can help slow the spread of the virus by following guidance and recommendations from the Public Health Department.
