Here are the latest Yuba-Sutter COVID-19 numbers: 44 new cases reported over the weekend, 23 in Yuba, 21 in Sutter. 18 people are currently hospitalized with 2 in ICU and one additional fatality for a total of 145. Overall 15,586 cases of the coronavirus have been documented locally with 15,467 of those cases ‘closed.’
As Yuba County Supervisor Gary Bradford reports: To go from the red tier to the orange tier, we must have a daily case rate < 6 and a positivity rate < 5% for two consecutive weeks. The case rate for tier designation is the official case rate released by the State every Tuesday. If we have a case rate of > 10 for two consecutive weeks, we will go back to the purple tier.
