The COVID-19 case count hits a new high in SLO County, and Caltrans will do bridge work in Los Alamos next week

County Public Health Officer Dr. Penny Borenstein in a press release tried to dispel the conception that Omicron is a mild variant by saying, “While we are extremely fortunate that some people have less severe illness with this variant, that is sadly not the case for many otherwise-healthy people who have succumbed to COVID-19.” The county said the surge in cases has also changed how it reports some data on their website, such as information on what occupations people who get sick with COVID hold, because “contact tracers are no longer able to investigate most cases.” Omicron now accounts for about 90 percent of recently-sequenced cases in the county.

51 SLO County residents are hospitalized due to severe COVID illness, and six of them are in the intensive care unit. The county added 2,967 cases in the past week, and the 14-day daily average of cases has reached 342 – surpassing the previous peak of 331 in January of last year.

Three more people in the county have died from the virus, bringing the total county death toll to 378. There are 3,573 current active cases right now, and that number does not include people who tested positive at home or are unable to access testing.

State Route 135 will be closed in both directions between Bell and Main Street to San Antonio Boulevard from 8p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20 to 6a.m. Friday, Jan. 21.
