Good Afternoon, There are now 109 cases of COVID-19 in Ventura County. There have been a total of 4 deaths: 3 people in their 70s and 1 person in their 80s. 26 people have been hospitalized. 
Question of the day: I am pregnant and worried that my partner will not be allowed to be at the delivery. Are partners allowed in the hospital for births during this time? “The Ventura County Medical Center and Santa Paula Hospital have no plans to restrict partners from being present for delivery. This is happening in other states that are severely impacted by COVID-19,” said Doctor Minako Watabe, Associate Chief Medical Officer VCMC and SPH and Associate Director Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. “The County of Ventura Medical Providers hope to keep parents together during this special time,” she added. The County of Ventura has a 1 support person policy at County hospitals. A partner is welcome for the big day.
