  • Vallejo added 3 of today’s new cases, total of  262.
  • Fairfield added 1 of today’s new cases, total of 74.
  • Vacaville
  • added 1 of today’s new cases, total of 40.
  • Suisun City remains at 21.
  • Benicia remains at 21.
  • Dixon, Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today all remain at <10 (less than 10).  The total numbers for other cities add up to 418, leaving 17 cases somewhere among the 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.

HOSPITALIZATIONS: 67 of Solano’s 435 cases resulted in hospitalizations, 1 more than yesterday.

ACTIVE CASES:  43 of the 435 cases are active, 4 more than yesterday.  Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are.  Below you will see that only 18 are currently hospitalized, which leaves 25 of these 43 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.

HOSPITAL IMPACT: The County shows 18 of the 67 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, same as yesterday.  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.)


The County reports that 7,961 residents have been tested as of today, an increase of 225 residents tested over yesterday.  Note that the County reported 753 reported in a single day last Friday.  See Solano testing – by the numbers April 13 – present.
We still have a long way to go:
only 1.7% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.
State run testing sites in Vallejo and Vacaville are open to anyone.

Solano’s steady upward curve – as of May 20

This chart shows the infection’s steady upward trajectory in Solano County.  Our “curve” continues to creep up.  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, wash hands, and be safe!
