Solano County COVID report – no update today

As of midnight Tuesday, Solano County had not updated its Coronavirus dashboard.  [UPDATE: still no Tuesday update as of 9:30am Wednesday] The dashboard is always updated between 4pm and 6pm every weekday.  I will continue my watch, but probably won’t post today’s report here on the Benicia Independent until tomorrow.  – Roger Straw, The Benicia Independent

For the record, here is yesterday’s report:
