COVID-19 Update

Just 3 weeks ago, California surpassed a much unwelcome benchmark: One million positive cases. Now, we’re at one million and a quarter total cases, which is a 25% increase. If that trend continutes (or worsens), California will near two million cases in 6 weeks. Just since Thanksgiving (last week) and to today, we have had 100,000+ new cases, with a positivity rate of 7.68% (In total California has been at a 5% positivity rate); numbers have yet to reflect any impact the Thanksgiving holiday. Governor Gavin Newsom is set to announce a state wide stay at home order. Meanwhile, the Central Valley isn’t faring well either, with all six counties below spiking more than they had previosly at any point in time.
