Napa County as of Friday morning had yet to announce any policies going this far but had some requirements in place in compliance with the July 26 state order. Gov. Gavin Newsom this week called for state employees and health care workers to be either vaccinated against COVID-19 or test weekly for COVID-19. President Joe Biden on Thursday announced vaccine requirements for federal employees and contractors. County workers in county-run health care or high-risk congregate living facilities such as public or behavioral health clinical services, corrections, and the homeless shelter must show proof of full vaccination or be tested at least once per week, Dr. Karen Relucio, county public health officer, said on Thursday.

The growth could be fueled by the delta variant of COVID-19. The Associated Press and other news sources reported leaked documents from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluding the variant is as contagious as chickenpox. The county on Friday reported information for the week of July 23 to July 29. The highest proportion of new cases came from those in their 30s at 26%, followed by those under 18 at 17%.
