San Diego County Reports Another Record-High Number of COVID-19 Cases

After more than a week of increasing COVID-19 cases in the region, the County Health and Human Services Agency is reporting another record-high number of novel coronavirus infections today. The County confirmed 1,091 new cases, surpassing the previous record of 1,087 cases reported last Saturday.

County health officials are attributing the sharp increase in cases to a general fatigue of the pandemic and are urging San Diegans to avoid gatherings and take COVID-19 very seriously.

“The virus is widespread and every element of our community is impacted,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Now more than ever it is vital that San Diegans avoid gatherings and crowds, wear a face covering when they are out in public and stay home if they are sick.”
