  • Data Dashboard Update: Followers of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department’s COVID-19 data dashboards may have noticed a recent jump in the numbers of confirmed cases and deaths. The Public Health Department has updated its record of confirmed cases and deaths with a new methodology. Cases will now be reported by the date of specimen collection rather than the date that confirmed positive results were reported. This moves the timing of reporting confirmed cases and deaths a few days earlier, and the change means that the numbers recently increased suddenly from 1,870 confirmed cases and 73 confirmed deaths as of April 17, to 1,922 confirmed cases and 83 deaths as of April 20.
  • The public is Strongly Urged to Wear Face Coverings: The Santa Clara County Public Health Department has issued expanded guidance, strongly urging all individuals to wear face coverings when outside of their homes performing essential activities. “Face coverings” refers to bandanas, scarves, towels, or other pieces of cloth or fabric worn over the mouth and nose. Face coverings are especially important for activities such as doctor appointments, grocery shopping, pharmacy visits, and riding on public transit when being near people outside of one’s own household is unavoidable. Face coverings are not recommended while exercising, as it may cause breathing issues. Medical masks, such as N-95 and surgical masks, should be reserved for healthcare settings. Read the full guidance for more details and exceptions to the recommendation.
