There are 898 active cases of coronavirus. This number is derived from the total number of confirmed cases and the subtraction of the total number of recoveries and deaths.

According to the county, there are 13,354  probable cases based on antigen tests .

According to the Riverside University Health System, 50 patients infected with coronavirus were hospitalized countywide as of Tuesday. That number includes 13 patients in intensive care units.

There are no newly reported fatalities keeping the county’s coronavirus death toll to 4,627.

The number of documented patient recoveries stands at 296,130.

The doubling time — or the number of days in which documented virus cases increase 100% — is 189 days. A doubling rate of seven days is reason for alarm, while expanding doubling times point to moderation, or gradual success in virus containment, according to health officials.

The county’s COVID positivity rate is 1.1%, down from 1.2% the previous week, while the state-adjusted case rate is 1.5 per 100,000 residents, based on a rolling seven-day average, compared to 1.6 per 100,000 2 weeks ago.

Residents of all ages are encouraged to get tested, with or without symptoms, to identify where the disease is currently present in the community and where it is not. Testing continues to be an integral focus as more residents visit more businesses.
