January 20, 2021 - We have no new COVID-19 cases to report for the second day in a row!
After seeing a case spike following the holidays, we are hoping that this is the start of a downward trend in reported cases.
From Jan. 1-10 we had 70 new cases.
From Jan. 11-20 we had 24 new cases.
This downward trend prevented us from moving into the Purple Tier yesterday, even though our metrics met the threshold. You can read more about the Tier and Blueprint for a Safer Economy here: http://ow.ly/61xE50De1FH. We are still under the Regional Stay Home Order but are keeping tabs on our Blueprint Tier for when the order is lifted.
We all need to continue to work together to keep our case numbers down. Wearing our masks, washing our hands, practicing social distancing, avoiding gatherings, and minimizing interactions with those outside of our household are all ways we can reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Keep it up, Mariposa County!
Avoid large gatherings, wear a face covering, and practice good hand hygiene and maintain social distance.
