- Solano County reported 12 new positive case today, total of 559.
- No new deaths today, total of 22.
- Active cases bounced back up after yesterday’s inexplicable decrease by 8 (perhaps today is a correction?). For whatever reason, active cases are up by 9 today.
- Hospitalizations are unchanged, at 87.
- Youth – Solano County reported 3 new cases among our youth today, totaling 30 new cases in the last 22 days, having reported only 6 over the 5 weeks prior. (See table below).
BY AGE GROUP
- 3 of today’s 12 new cases were young persons under 19 years of age, total of 36 cases, increasing over the last two weeks to 6.4% of the 559 total confirmed cases. (See table below.)
- 8 of today’s 12 new cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 392 cases, 70% of the 559 total. No new deaths in this age group today, total of 5. Note that no one in this age group was moved from “non-severe” to “hospitalized” today. A total of 50 of the 392 cases in this age group have been hospitalized at one time, just under 13% of total cases in the age group. (It is unclear whether the 5 deaths were ever hospitalized.)
- 1 of today’s 12 new cases was a person 65 or older, total of 131 cases, just over 23% of the 559 total. No new deaths, total of 17. Note that no one in this age group was moved from “non-severe” to “hospitalized” today. A total of 36 of the 131 cases in this age group (27%) were hospitalized at one time, more than double the percentage in the mid-age group. (It is unclear whether the 17 deaths in this age group were ever hospitalized.)

- Vallejo added 4 new cases today, total of 310.
- Fairfield added 7 new cases today, total of 118.
- Vacaville added 1 new case today, total of 57.
- Suisun City remained at 30.
- Benicia remained at 23 cases.
- Dixon remained at 11 cases.
- Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today both remain at <10 (less than 10). The total numbers for other cities add up to 549, leaving 10 cases somewhere among the 2 locations in this “<10” category (same as last reported). Residents and city officials have pressured County officials for city case counts. Today’s data is welcome, but still incomplete.
HOSPITALIZATIONS: 87 of Solano’s 559 cases resulted in hospitalizations since the outbreak started. Good news – same as yesterday. Cumulative hospitalizations is a most important stat to watch. On May 1 there were 51 hospitalizations, and the daily increase was relatively steady, adding 2 or less each day until a little over a week ago. On May 22, the County reported 4 new hospitalizations, on May 29 an additional 9, and yesterday 3 new hospitalizations. The County has seen 16 additional hospitalizations in just 12 days. Stay tuned!
ACTIVE CASES: 63 of the 559 cases are currently active, 9 more than yesterday. (We wonder if this was just a correction, given that the County reported a sudden drop of 8 fewer cases yesterday.) Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are. Below you will see that only 9 of the active cases are currently hospitalized, which leaves 54 of these 63 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.
HOSPITAL IMPACT: The County shows 9 of the 87 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, 6 fewer than yesterday – good news! The County’s count of ICU beds available and ventilator supply remains at “GOOD” at 31-100%. (No information is given on our supply of test kits, PPE and staff.)
TESTING: The County reports that 13,058 residents have been tested as of today, an increase of 593 residents tested since yesterday. Good news: this is the second day in a row that we’ve seen over 500 residents tested. But we still have a long way to go: only 2.9% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested. NOTE: State run testing sites in Vallejo and Vacaville are open to anyone.
Solano’s curve – cumulative cases as of June 3
This chart shows that the infection’s steady upward trajectory could be flattening a bit in Solano County. Still too early to tell. Our nursing homes, long-term care facilities and jails bear watching!
