Amador County Public Health confirms ten new cases of COVID-19 in Amador
since Friday’s media release. The new cases include 4 males and 6 females, 1 child under the age of 18, 6 aged 18-49, 1 aged 50-64, 2 over 65 years of age; 2 residing in Ione, 4 living in Jackson, 1 living in Pine Grove, 1 in Plymouth, and 2 residing in Sutter Creek/Amador City. These additional cases are linked to extended family case clusters, workplace exposure, gathering, out-of-state travel and community transmission. Two individuals are currently hospitalized.

It is important that residents keep getting tested to demonstrate that the underlying local COVID-19 activity remains stable. In order to remain in the orange tier, our testing positivity rate needs to remain low. COVID-19 testing is available in Amador County and within driving distance in neighboring counties. To access the no-cost COVID-19 testing in Jackson, register at www.projectbaseline.com for an appointment. This week the test site, located in the St. Katharine Drexel parking lot, will be open on Thursday and Friday. Next week the test site will be open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

With Halloween weekend coming up, we all need to consistently practice prevention measures that help limit the spread of COVID-19. Avoid gatherings, especially where people are not keeping distance or wearing face coverings. Avoid mixing with others outside your household. Individuals may be contagious before symptoms of COVID-19 are present. Outdoors is safer than indoors. Persons over age 65 and those with chronic health conditions that put them at higher risk for severe COVID-19 are encouraged to stay home as much as possible. Avoid unnecessary travel. Stay home if you are sick even with mild symptoms.

Total cases in Amador to date = 301 cases.

Total hospitalized in Amador County = 1 case.

Total hospitalized out-of-county = 1 case.

Total confirmed COVID-19 deaths = 15 deaths.

Total active cases = 27 cases.

Total cases released from isolation to date = 259 cases.

Cases are released from isolation when they are no longer infectious.
