Solano County COVID-19 Dashboard – SUMMARY:

On April 20, Solano County reported no new deaths, and the County reported 20 new COVID cases overnight.  For context, our average over the first two weeks of April was 39 new cases per day.   Last week we saw 348 new cases, or slightly under 50 per day.  Last week’s increases will likely make it difficult  for Solano to join all other Bay Area counties in the State’s orange tier.  Solano’s Active cases fell today from 400 to 368.  Our percent positivity rate remained at 6.6%.

Cases among youth and young adults increasing

Yesterday, the percentage of total cases among youth aged 0-17 hit 12% for the first time.  This chart shows the increase among that age group since last July.  Note also the increase among the 18-49 year age group.

>> The virus is still on the move here.  Stay safe, get vaccinated, wear a mask and social distance!  We will get through this together.
