Last report (Friday, April 10):


Solano County reported 14 NEW POSITIVE CASES over the weekend and today – total is now 135.  No new deaths in Solano County – still stands at 2.

Over the weekend:

    • 5 new cases were reported on Saturday 4/11
    • 4 new cases were reported on Sunday 4/12
    • 5 new cases were reported today, Monday 4/13

As of today:

    • 1 additional positive case was a young person under 19 years of age, total of 2.
    • 13 additional cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 106 cases, 79%, of the 135 total (no new deaths, total of 1).
    • No additional cases were persons 65 or older, total of 27 cases, 20% of the 135 total (including 1 death)

ACTIVE CASES:  Only 25 of the 135 are active cases. This is 8 fewer than previously reported on Friday, 4/10. On that day, 6 fewer than the previous day were classed as active.  Taken together would seem to be a dramatic reduction.  Good news!

HOSPITALIZATIONS: 36 of the cases have resulted in hospitalizations (2 more than previously reported on 4/10).

CITY DATA: Vallejo added 6 new cases, total of 50; Fairfield added 1 case, total of 34; and Vacaville added 3 new case, total of 24.  Smaller cities are still not assigned numerical data: all show <10 (less than 10).  NOTE that the county’s 3 major cities account for only 10 of today’s 13 new cases, so 3 of today’s new cases must have come from our four smaller cities or unincorporated areasResidents and city officials have been pressuring County officials for city case counts for many weeks.  Today’s data is welcome, but incomplete.

A new NUMBER OF RESIDENTS TESTED panel was added to today’s report.  1,855 residents have been tested as of today, approximately 4 tenths of 1% of Solano County’s population of 447,643 (2019).

The blue bars in the chart, “Daily number of cases on the date that specimens were collected” shows why the County is interpreting a flattening of the curve.  Note that the daily date in that chart refers to the date a sample was drawn and so reflects the lag time in testing.
