County of San Diego officials shared that after a couple days of declining case rates, the numbers are rising again. We need to work together to turn this around soon – or another shut down in the state could be coming
• The case rate is now 154.8/100,000 population (Monday data: 145.3/100,000 population).
• Cases reported in the last four days:7/18 – 568; 7/19 – 453; 7/20 – 385; 7/21 – 587. Dr Wooten explained that we would need to report 234 cases or fewer per day for 14 consecutive days to reach the required metric of fewer than 100/100,000 population. We have not seen numbers that low since early June.
• County is launching a Safe Reopening Compliance Team that will work with cities to educate and work with businesses to achieve compliance. Officials are prepared to take actions to ensure compliance.
• Community Outbreaks: We have continued outbreaks and officials are concerned. We now have had 110 community outbreaks since March.
