  • Vallejo is reported to have 1 fewer case today, (see correction below) total of  306.
  • Fairfield is reported to have added 2 new cases today, total of 111.
  • Vacaville remained at 56.
  • Suisun City remained at 30.
  • Benicia remained at 23 cases.
  • Dixon remained at 11 cases.
  • Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today both remain at <10 (less than 10).  The total numbers for other cities add up to 537, leaving 10 cases somewhere among the 2 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.
  • [CORRECTION: The County must have learned that a person previously listed as a Vallejo resident was actually a Fairfield resident, thus the -1 and +2 cases, respectively.]

HOSPITALIZATIONS: 87 of Solano’s 547 cases resulted in hospitalizations since the outbreak started, 3 more than yesterday.  Total hospitalizations is a most important stat to watch.  On May 1 there were 51 hospitalizations, and the daily increase was relatively steady, adding 2 or less each day until a little over a week ago.  On May 22, the County reported 4 new hospitalizations and on May 29, an additional 9 new hospitalizations.  With today’s increase of 3, the County has seen 16 additional hospitalizations in just 11 days.  Stay tuned!

ACTIVE CASES:  54 of the 547 cases are currently active, 8 fewer than yesterday, and trending lower each of the last 2 days.  Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are.  Below you will see that only 15 of the active cases are currently hospitalized, which leaves 39 of these 54 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.

HOSPITAL IMPACT: The County shows 15 of the 87 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, 3 fewer than yesterday – good news!  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.)

TESTING: The County reports that 12,465 residents have been tested as of today, an increase of 599 residents tested since yesterday.  We still have a long way to go: only 2.8% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.  NOTE: State run testing sites in Vallejo and Vacaville are open to anyone.

Solano’s curve – cumulative cases as of June 2

This chart shows that the infection’s steady upward trajectory could be flattening a bit in Solano County.  Still too early to tell.  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 (especially in enclosed spaces), wash hands, and be safe!
