Tuolumne County Records No New COVID-19 cases.
Sonora, CA – Some good news regarding Tuolumne County COVID-19 cases.
County health officials are reporting no new cases today. They add the one previously hospitalized individual has recovered and has been discharged. The known test administered is 8,799 with 159 positive cases made up of 83 females and 76 males with the most cases, 30 in the 30s age range. There are six active cases with one hospitalized, two deaths, and 151 recovered.
While no new cases are a trend that county public health officials hope will continue, they note it may not reflect the true numbers. Health officials caution that the state’s CalREDIE backlog of coronavirus cases could change the county’s daily numbers as the state plans to retroactively updated data monitoring. In turn, county public health officials say 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.
