    “More people are infectious and spreading the virus indoors,” said Public Health Officer Doctor Robert Levin. “Taking these steps – limiting close contacts, wearing a mask indoors to prevent getting infected and infecting others, isolating when symptomatic, testing and getting vaccinated – can reduce the likelihood of severe COVID affecting you, your family, and community.”

    As of Friday, December 31 there are 1,052 new COVID-19 cases reported, 109 community members hospitalized and 18 in the ICU. The 7 -day average case rate has increased to 46 per 100,000. “The increase in cases is almost double our high during the summer Delta surge,” said Public Health Director Rigoberto Vargas. Health officials attribute the increase to holiday gatherings and the more contagious Omicron variant. The risk of community transmission of COVID-19 is currently very high.
