monitoring list:

    It’s been close to a month since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced additional restrictions for counties on the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list. In that time, the list has grown to encompass every county in the Bay Area and over 90% of the state’s population. Is there anywhere in the Bay Area close to escaping the dreaded list? We’re tracking the metrics county-by-county below, using data compiled by this news organization. Currently, hospitalizations are trending in the right direction in most of the region, but there isn’t one county that meets the per-capita case threshold necessary to come off the list, according to our calculations. San Mateo County, with a rate of 12.5 cases per 10,000 residents over the past two weeks,...
    San Mateo County finally joined its neighbors on the state’s coronavirus watch list Wednesday morning, meaning that the entire region is now under state watch. The county was the lone Bay Area holdout after San Francisco was added nearly two weeks ago, followed by Santa Cruz on Sunday. For days — as residents of other counties watched — residents could work out inside a gym or get an indoor haircut in San Mateo County, even as they were banned from doing so in all other Bay Area counties.. Now that’s poised to change. If the county remains on the list for three consecutive days, a slew of locations must shut down unless they can perform their work outside — including...
    San Mateo County now stands alone in the greater Bay Area, an island surrounded by others whose surging coronavirus cases landed them on California’s COVID-19 monitoring list that requires closure of everything from indoor classrooms, offices and shopping malls to gyms, churches, hair salons and barbershops. Not San Mateo County. As of Monday, you could still go inside for a haircut from East Palo Alto to Pacifica or even workout inside a fitness center in Redwood City. And for the moment, San Mateo County stands as the only place in the region that can welcome students back to classrooms without special permission. But there is little cause for celebration. Local officials and businesses expect they may land on the list...
    Hundreds of COVID-19 tests that have already come back positive sat unreported in Santa Cruz County as of Thursday, health officials there said, due to continued technical problems with the state’s online database. Two-thirds of the county’s 848 publicly reported cases have come in the past two weeks, Dr. Gail Newell, the county’s health officer, said Thursday, and she expected that number to be “well over 1,000” by early next week. “We’re overwhelmed by the sheer number of cases that are increasing every single day,” Newell said. Although the county has a larger contact-tracing operation than recommended by the state, the spread has grown too large to test and trace every case. The numbers already in the system were enough...
    Alameda County became California’s 30th county placed on the state’s watch list because of growing concerns over the novel coronavirus pandemic, health officials announced Sunday. “While Alameda County has the highest number of cases among Bay Area counties, the County’s case rate is third highest in the Bay Area and less than half of California’s overall case rate,”  said a statement released by county health spokeswoman Neetu Balram. The state puts counties on its watch list if they exceed thresholds for certain criteria, including significant changes in COVID-19 infection rates, increases in hospitalizations, and availability of ICU beds and ventilators. In the past two weeks, Alameda County averaged a COVID-19 case rate of 104 positive results per 100,000 people. The...
