Solano County COVID-19 Dashboard – SUMMARY:
On April 19, Solano County reported 1 new death, someone over 65, and the County reported 152 new COVID cases over the 3-day weekend.  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.  These increases will likely make it more difficult  for Solano to join all other Bay Area counties in the State’s orange tier.  Solano’s Currently Active cases increased today from 373 to 400.  Our percent positivity rate increased from 6.2% to 6.6%.

Cases among youth and young adults increasing – Today, 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.
