Four New COVID-19 Cases In Tuolumne County
Sonora, CA – Tuolumne County Public Health reports four new Tuolumne County residents have been identified with coronavirus today. Two of the four are isolating, one has recovered and one is hospitalized. California Department of Public Health (CDPH) reports they have cleared the CalREDIE backlog and are continuing to work with local health jurisdictions to identify and resolve any remaining data gaps. The state had previously reported they would halt the county data monitoring process. However, in order to consistently reflect the data and how the disease is impacting communities, as local health departments work with the state to complete the processing of backlogged cases, the state plans to retroactively apply the data and update the county data monitoring list for each day. Due to the state lab reporting system challenges, Tuolumne County Public Health is temporarily not reporting case rate data. They will update and begin reporting that part of the data again as soon as possible.
If you are having COVID-like symptoms, self-isolate and contact your healthcare provider or the Adventist Health Triage Line at 209-536-5166 Mon-Fri, or 209-536-5000 after hours. If you need immediate medical attention, please call ahead and go to Rapid Care or the Emergency Department. You can also visit www.valleycovidhelp.com for more information.
