Yolo County Exceeds Case Threshold for Attestation Metric

A recent increase in confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases has resulted in Yolo County exceeding one of the State of California’s attestation metrics for epidemiological stability. 

As of 5:00 p.m. on June 17, Yolo County reported 76 confirmed COVID-19 cases over the past 14 days. One of the State of California’s attestation metrics evaluates the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases over a 14-day period, with a threshold of no more than 25 cases per 100,000 residents. For Yolo County this translates to no more than 55 cases, which has now been exceeded. Exceeding the attestation metric threshold does not result in an automatic rollback of re-opened activities or State withdrawal of the County’s attestation plan approval.  

While Yolo County has exceeded the 25 cases per 100,000 population threshold, testing positivity remains below 8% at 3.26% as of June 17. Therefore, at this point in time Yolo County is in compliance with the metrics on the Data Monitoring List.

In response to the increase in cases, Yolo County continues to be vigilant in its COVID-19 contact tracing investigations and is prepared to increase contact tracing staff as needed. For each confirmed case, Yolo County Public Health immediately isolates the individual, conducts a thorough investigation to identify and notify close contacts, and places those individuals on quarantine pending test results.
