COVID-19 Patients in San Diego County

San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) officials confirmed there have been 214,337 positive COVID-19 cases and 2,103 deaths since Feb. 14, 2020.

As testing capacity increases in San Diego County, the number of positive cases reported will likely rise, but any increase in the percentage of positive cases among total tests would indicate an increase in spread. Before mid-June, the county had a 14-day rolling daily positivity average between 2% to 3%, according to the county. At the turn of 2021, the 14-day average stood at 12%.

Since the beginning of December the county has consistently reported more than 20,000 coronavirus tests per day. This allows health officials to better track the disease, particularly among residents who may not show symptoms of COVID-19 but can just as easily spread it.

Jan. 14

Vaccines

: Doctors are warning people about trying to get the vaccine across the border, saying who are offered the vaccine in Mexico won't be getting the real thing.

Also: California -- and San Diego -- continue to face obstacles with the rollout of the vaccine. County health leaders said vaccine supply remains limited and only health care workers who fall into Phase 1-A of the state's vaccination schedule can get their immunization, despite the approval of people 65 and up being approved for the shot.

Unemployment Fraud: Nine local inmates are accused of taking advantage of the pandemic's expanded unemployment benefits, to the tune of $166,000. None of the suspects were actually employed -- yet some were receiving "luxury items" from Amazon and restaurant food deliveries, according to the D.A.'s office.

Cases, Deaths: 2,595 COVID-19 cases were recorded on Wednesday, a drop of 666 from the day before, despite vastly more tests being performed. Fifty-three COVID-19 deaths were recorded on that date, bringing the county's total to 2,005.

Of the 53 new deaths reported, 27 people who passed away were 80 years or older, 13 people were in their 70s, eight people were in their 60s, three people were in their 50s, one person was in their 20s.

Among those deaths reported include a 19-year-old male, the youngest San Diegan to die from complications of COVID-19. Fifty-one had underlying medical conditions, one did not and one had medical history pending.

Testing: A staggering 42,878 were conducted on Wednesday, officials reported. That figure, however, includes a backlog, the county said.

Community Outbreaks: County officials said that eight new community outbreaks were confirmed on Wednesday, bringing the total in the past seven days to 48.

Jan. 13

Vaccines

: Two new vaccination centers are now open in San Diego County, one at the Grossmont Healthcare District office in La Mesa and one at the Coronado Community Center.

California is immediately allowing residents 65 and older to get scarce coronavirus vaccines, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday. Chairman Nathan Fletcher stated that people will need to be patient because vaccines "have not arrived in significant quantities to be able to administer to those." They will let the public know when those 65 and older can register to get their vaccine.

"We were just beginning the process of getting through Tier 1A with health care workers, and we had a long way to go based on the vaccines that were made available," Fletcher said.

Vaccination Super Station: Allergic reactions in some vaccine recipients caused delays at San Diego County's new "Vaccination Super Station" near downtown's Petco Park, County health officials confirmed.

Case Data: A total of 3,261 COVID-19 cases were reported out of 14,636 tests, a 22% positive. The total number of cases has now reached 201,580. It took the region 10 months to exceed 100,000 cases, and a little over a month to double that.

Deaths: Fifty-four COVID-19 deaths were reported bringing the total to 1,952. Of the new deaths, 30 people who passed away were 80 years or older, 15 people were in their 70s, four people were in their 60s, three people were in their 50s, one person was in their 40s and one person was in their 30s.

Community Outbreaks: Seven new community outbreaks were confirmed on Jan. 12: three in business settings, one in a daycare/preschool/childcare, one in a distribution warehouse setting, one in a faith-based setting and one in a hotel/resort/spa setting. In the past seven days (Jan. 6 through Jan. 12), 46 community outbreaks were confirmed.

Jan. 12

Enforcement: The County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of strengthening enforcement on businesses that aren't complying with pandemic health and safety regulations.

Extra steps include making non-compliant businesses ineligible for county relief funding, increasing citations for Safe Reopening Plan violations, and conducting inspections at businesses connected to public health order violation complaints or community outbreaks.

Vaccine: The Trump administration issued new guidelines that expand coronavirus vaccine eligibility to everyone age 65 and older, as well as to those with comorbid conditions, like diabetes.

California last week also announced anyone who falls into the Phase 1A category can now get vaccinated. That includes all health care workers, a group that is made up of about 635,000 people, local health officials said Tuesday. Long-term care residents and staff also fall into the Phase 1A category, many of which are being vaccinated through a federal partnership with local pharmacies. If you fall into this group, contact your health care provider or go to vaccinationsuperstationsd.com.

Jan. 7

Deaths

: San Diego County reported another 47 people with COVID-19 died for a total of 1,738. To put the number into perspective, San Diego County surpassed 1,000 deaths on December 1. In California, a new record two-day total was met with 1,042 deaths. The state has deployed 88 refrigerated trailers, up from 60 a few weeks ago, for use as makeshift morgues, mostly in hard-hit Southern California.

Case Data: There were 3,850 new COVID-19 cases reported for a total of 180,512. The 14-day average percentage of positive cases was reported to be 13.8%.

Hospitalizations: There were only 40 staffed and immediately available ICU beds left in San Diego County. Out of the 650 patients currently occupying ICU beds, 395 were positive with COVID-19. Take a look at the chart below to see how hospitalizations of those with COVID-19 has surged since mid-November. California projects that by Feb. 1, already hard-hit hospitals could have 30,000 patients in beds.

Community Outbreaks: There were 38 community outbreaks reported in the last 7 days, accounting for a total of 156 positive cases of COVID-19.

Also on Wednesday, Kaiser Medical Center in San Diego and Zion Medical Centers began to distribute the second dose of a two-part COVID-19 vaccine to critical care health care workers.

Case Data: 3,015 new cases of COVID-19 were reported. Fletcher said there was a slight dip in cases for the last few days due to a slow-down in testing over the holidays. The 14-day percentage positivity rate was 14%, showing an upward trend.

Jan 5.

COVID-19 Variant

: There are at least two dozen local cases of the new COVID-19 strain first detected in the U.K in San Diego County, officials said. The latest cases were in San Diego, Chula Vista and Lakeside, according to the county, and span a wide range of ages, including four children under 10. The oldest person in the county with the B.1.1.7. variant is over 70 years old. None of the new cases involves a patient with a history of travel, authorities said, so they are all cases of community spread as well. Read more here.

California Metrics: The county's case rate -- one of two metrics measured by the state every Tuesday and used to determine a county's placement in California's tiered reopening schedule -- was at 53.4, well above the Purple Tier limit of 8.0 needed to be considered for more reopenings. Even if San Diego were to meet the criteria, reopening considerations from the state are currently on pause due to a regional stay-at-home order that depends on ICU capacity. Southern California's ICU capacity remained at 0%, while San Diego County's capacity was at 18%.

Case Data: The 14-day rolling average percentage of positive COVID-19 cases continues to rise; today's is at 12.9%. There were 1,814 new cases reported for a total of 172,847. Of those, 3.5% have required hospitalization and .7% of all cases landed in the ICU.

Deaths: There were 56 deaths reported on Monday for the third-highest number since the pandemic began. Last Wednesday's 62 deaths and New Year's Day's 58 deaths were the only ones to top it. The increase in deaths are being attributed to gatherings over the holidays and the presence of the new COVID-19 variant, though at this time, the county hasn't reported any deaths linked to the new strain.

Community Outbreaks: There were two new community outbreaks reported for a total of 44 in the last seven days.

Jan. 4

Dentists Cleared to Administer Vaccines: California's Department of Consumer Affairs approved a public health emergency waiver that will allow dentists across the state to administer COVID-19 vaccines to patients 16 and older. Vaccine administration likely won't take place in dental offices until there's an approved vaccine that doesn't require cold storage.

Vaccines: Only about 1% of California's 40 million residents have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, setting a pace of immunization that's “not good enough," Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday.

In San Diego County, officials' best guess is that 24% of the first batch of vaccines have been given out. A spokesperson said there are over 200,000 doses in the county, not including doses in military or private pharmacies.

Case Data: San Diego County reported 3,013 new COVID-19 cases out of 17,712 tests, for a daily positivity rate of 17%. Over the last week, the county has reported an average of 22,304 tests per day.

Hospitalizations: Up to this point, 3.5% of all cases have required hospitalization and .7% of all cases required ICU admission. Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday said in just two months, there has been a 7-fold increase in hospitalizations and a 6-fold increase in ICU admissions across the state.

"It shows what can happen in a very short period of time… and that goes to the urgency of not only this moment but the urgency that we have placed in anticipation of this surge, and in anticipation of this 'surge on top of a surge' coming in the next coming days and weeks following the holiday season," Newsom said.

COVID-19 Variant: According to Gov. Newsom, the new strain of COVID-29 first identified in the U.K. has been discovered in four individuals in San Diego. One of those patients has been hospitalized. Newsom said we should anticipate many more cases of the new strain to be identified in the coming days. The new strain is more contagious but does not cause a more severe sickness than the already identified strain does.

Deaths: Six new COVID-19-related deaths were reported, bringing the total to 1,598.

Community Outbreaks: One new community outbreak was reported Monday, and 45 have been confirmed over the last 7 days. The latest outbreak was traced to a daycare/preschool/childcare setting, according to the county.

Jan. 3

Case Data: The county reported a record 3,520 positive COVID-19 tests bringing the total to 168,020. A total of 14,419 tests were reported to the county on Jan.2, and the percent positive rate was 24%.

Community Outbreaks: Five new community outbreaks were confirmed on Jan. 1. In the past seven days, 49 community outbreaks were confirmed.

Jan. 1

Case Data: For the first day of 2021, the county reported a record 4,478 positive COVID-19 tests bringing the total to 160,073. This is the first time the daily total surpasses 4,000 cases in a single day. This also surpasses the previous record set on Dec. 17, 2020, when 3,611 cases were reported. A total of 31,602 tests were reported to the county on Dec. 31, and the percent positive rate was 14%.

Deaths: The county reported 58 more deaths bringing the total to 1,592. This is the second-highest daily total reported after a record 62 deaths were reported on Dec. 30.

COVID-19 Variant: Two close contacts of the four B.1.1.7. cases are confirmed to have COVID-19, said José A. Álvarez, County of San Diego Communications Office. The genome sequencing on the two new COVID-19 cases won't be done until next week. All close contacts are quarantined.

ICU Capacity: The current intensive care unit bed availability for the Southern California region is still at 0%. The regional stay at home order will continue to be in effect until the region’s ICU availability meets or exceeds 15%.

Mid-March 2020: The Coronavirus Pandemic Reaches San Diego County

A lot happened in March 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic reached San Diego County and COVID-19 cases surged.

This included quarantine operations at a 151-room Ramada hotel in Kearny Mesa that was chosen to house quarantined patients held at MCAS Miramar (March 18).

More than 480 passengers from a coronavirus-ridden cruise ship that docked at the Port of Oakland were flown to MCAS Miramar March 10 to March 12 to complete a mandatory 14-day federal quarantine. On March 27, Dr. Eric McDonald, Medical Director with the County Epidemiology Immunization Branch said all but three of the passengers had returned home after 14-days of quarantine, including those who had been at the Ramada Hotel.

Training Support Command at Naval Base San Diego was temporarily closed on March 14 due to three Sailors testing positive for COVID-19.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued the stay-at-home order and, soon, the springtime shutdown across San Diego County began.

Schools Shut DownOn March 13, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten shut down the second-largest school district in California. All other school districts in San Diego County followed suit. San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy closed all schools within the San Diego Catholic Diocese, too.

We later learned schools across the state would be closed for the remainder of the academic year.

Local colleges and universities also canceled classes and events and moved their operations online. This included: UC San Diego; San Diego State University; California State University San Marcos; Point Loma Nazarene University; University of San Diego; San Diego Community College District; Southwestern College; Palomar College; Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.

Landmarks Shutter, Events CanceledSan Diego’s biggest tourist attractions, landmarks and events closed or were canceled. Local casinos followed, as well as gyms and fitness centers.

Church Services CanceledAs gatherings were banned, all daily and Sunday masses in the San Diego Catholic Diocese were canceled. Rock Church San Diego services were also canceled and moved to streaming online.

Beaches & Parks ClosedOn March 23, San Diego’s beaches, parks, boardwalks, and other open spaces across the county were ordered to close to restrict gatherings over 10 people prohibited by state and local laws.

Restaurant Dinings Rooms & Bars CloseBars and restaurant dining rooms were ordered to close in March, too. Shopping malls closed. Some retailers – like clothing stores Urban Outfitters and Brandy Melville USA – temporarily closed their stores, and more would follow.

Sports, On Hold Sports agencies – both college-level and professional – suspended their games and seasons. MLB’s Opening Day – including the San Diego Padres big Home Opener at Petco Park – were scrapped, but in June, the MLB made plans to return to the field, without fans. The 2020 MLB season will return in late July.
