HOSPITALIZATIONS: 66 of Solano’s 430 cases resulted in hospitalizations, 2 more than yesterday.

ACTIVE CASES:  39 of the 430 cases are active, 1 fewer than yesterday.  Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are.  Below you will see that only 18 are currently hospitalized, which leaves 21 of these 39 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.

The County’s “Hospital Impact” graph shows 18 of the 66 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, 1 more than yesterday.  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.)


  • Vallejo added all 6 of today’s new cases, total of  259.
  • Fairfield remains at 73.
  • Vacaville remains at 39.
  • Suisun City remains at 21.
  • Benicia remains at 21.
  • Dixon, Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today all remain at <10 (less than 10).  The total numbers for other cities add up to 413, leaving 17 cases somewhere among the 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.


The County reports that 7,736 residents have been tested as of today, an increase of 368 residents tested over yesterday.  Note that the County reported 753 reported in a single day last Friday.  See Solano testing – by the numbers April 13 – present.
We still have a long way to go:
only 1.6% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.
State run testing sites in Vallejo and Vacaville are open to anyone.

Solano’s steady upward curve – as of May 19

This chart shows the infection’s steady upward trajectory in Solano County.  Our “curve” continues to creep up.  Our nursing homes, long-term care facilities and jails bear watching!

Still incredibly important – everyone stay home if you don’t need to go out, wear masks when you do go out, wash hands, and be safe!
