That’s up 107 cases from Tuesday. The county also reported three new coronavirus-related deaths, for a total of 10 since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Countywide, 67 people are currently hospitalized — 31 of them in intensive care.

As the number of patients continues to climb, county officials have urged residents to continue following stay-at-home orders and to maintain a healthy distance from others when they do need to venture outside.

“Social distancing and isolation is no longer a debate,” county Supervisor Andrew Do said Tuesday. “All over the world, this practice is put in place — from Denmark to Moscow, and here in the U.S. from New York to Washington state. The effectiveness in limiting the spread of COVID-19 can be found in how early the policy of shelter-in-place is implemented, and how rigorously people adhere to this policy.”

Age breakdown of cases:
0-17 — 3
18-24 — 65
25-34 — 96
35-44 — 100
45-64 — 236
65+ — 106

Age breakdown of deaths:
25-34 — 2
