Update on the COVID-19 pandemic

The rolling daily average rate of people testing positive for the virus fell to 12.7%, down from around 20% earlier this month. According to the county, 81% of eligible county residents aged 5 and above have received at least one dose of vaccine, and 72% are fully vaccinated. The vaccination rate among children aged 5-11 remains low, with only 21% fully vaccinated. Dr. Ferrer said the low vaccination rate among children "creates significant vulnerability for spread" of the virus. But the number of fully vaccinated residents who have been hospitalized was a rate of 0.1%. The number who have died is a rate of 0.01%. While the winter surge of COVID-19 infections fueled by the Omicron variant appears to be easing, authorities are watching the emergence of an omicron "sub-lineage" that has spread rapidly in some countries, with Los Angeles County's health director saying four cases have been recently found locally. LA County Department of Public Health, Dr. Ferrer, indicates that vaccinations remain the best defense in this pandemic. We continue our check-ins, masking, and distancing.
