San Andreas, CA – As Calaveras County passes the 1,000 mark of COVI-19 cases, residents get their questions answered by a real person at a new call center.

By dialing 209-754-2896, the caller will not get a recording, instead, there will be a real live person answering their questions. OES officials say, “The goal of the call center is to provide community members with verified information about COVID-19 vaccines, testing, and other frequently asked questions.”

The county also has a new dashboard set up with the latest numbers, which shows the county has crossed the 1,000 mark for confirmed cases with 1,217. That is another 272 cases since Tuesday’s public health update where officials advised of a hike in cases later this week due to a backlog discrepancy with the state being resolved, as reported hereThere are 12 hospitalized, 63 active cases, 1,132 recovered individuals, and 22 deaths.
