Coronavirus cases up, hospitalizations down, ending a week that brought the County back to the purple tier

New coronavirus numbers Friday afternoon round out a week that brought Riverside County back into the purple tier.

Cases were up by 371 since Thursday bringing the case total to 65,757. No deaths were reported. Hospitalizations were down by 15 for a total of 161 and there were 2 fewer coronavirus cases in the ICU bringing that total down to 39.

9,112 more people tested since Thursday as the County and various cities push that more testing will help push the County back into the red tier.

Riverside County put this statement in an e-mail blast regarding testing:

"Riverside County officials remind residents that returning swiftly to the red tier of the state’s reopening framework is based on the actions that all of us take – including getting tested. 

Returning to red tier so that more businesses can return indoors as quickly as possible means that all residents must remain vigilant and get tested. Getting tested is a critical step to early intervention that slows the spread to others. 

When residents wear face masks outside the home, keep six feet of distance from others and frequently wash their hands, they protect themselves by up to 95 percent of the virus. 

Riverside County returned to the purple tier this week, requiring several types of businesses and places of worship to move outdoors. The county must remain in the purple tier for a minimum of three weeks until the state-evaluated metrics return to the red tier for two of those weeks.

250 more people were added to the recovered list bringing that total to 58,852. The case rate remains at 9.1% and the positivity rate remains at 5.2%.

Here in the Coachella Valley there were 69 additional coronavirus cases for a total of 15,597 since the pandemic began. There were no new deaths in the Coachella Valley.
