County of San Diego officials shared that cases are still high, community transmission is occurring and we are still on the state’s monitoring list
• The case rate is now 144/100,000 population. During the last five days, the case rate was a low of 152.4 to a high of 158.5. It’s moving in the right direction but we have a way to go to get down to fewer than 100 cases per 100,000 population.
• County officials held a meeting with the City Managers/Administrators today from the 18 cities in the County to involve cities in implementing a compliance effort. The Board of Supervisors will consider an item next Tuesday regarding a plan for implementing compliance efforts in collaboration with city teams to ensure individuals, organizations and/or businesses are following public health guidelines.
