    1. Orange County at risk of reverting to most restrictive purple tier as COVID-19 infection rates rise

      Orange County at risk of reverting to most restrictive purple tier as COVID-19 infection rates rise

      It’s not that Orange County reported 335 new cases of COVID-19 and two additional deaths Wednesday, that may send it back into the most restrictive purple tier in the state’s Coronavirus metrics. After all, the positivity rate was actually down Wednesday, if slightly.

      Coughs Can Send COVID Virus Farther Than 6 Feet

      Droplets from a cough may travel farther than 6 feet and could potentially carry enough COVID-19 virus to infect another person, according to a new study.

      Public health officials have urged everyone to practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which means leaving some space between yourself and people you don’t live with. This new study adds to other research that finds that these guidelines -- the CDC advises leaving at least 6 feet between yourself and other people -- may not go far enough.

      Coronavirus cases in OC may be 7 times higher than reported

      The number of COVID-19 infections in Orange County may be nearly eight times higher than previously thought, a new antibody study suggests.

      Although the screening, a collaborative effort between UC Irvine and the O.C. Health Care Agency, demonstrates that the coronavirus may be far more widespread — though less deadly — than official numbers indicate, researchers said more work is needed to understand the level of protection that antibodies provide and how best to address disparities in how the virus affects different populations.

      For-Profit Nursing Homes' Pleas For Government Money Brings Scrutiny

      New Study Shows Effectiveness of Neck Gaiters

      Two months after a study on masks called neck gaiters into question, new research shows that the tubular accessories may be just as or more effective than cloth masks at protecting against the spread of COVID-19. The findings out of the University of Georgia vindicate what promotional products suppliers have been saying all along: that a face covering’s effectiveness depends largely on what type of fabric it’s made of and how many layers of material are used to construct it.

      Orange County resets clock to move into next reopening tier

      Orange County won’t be moving up to the next tier under California’s coronavirus reopening rules for at least two more weeks after the average new daily COVID-19 case rate climbed.

      Dr. Clayton Chau, the Orange County Health Care Agency director, said during a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday that the county was on track last week to move to the next tier, but the latest data on new infections will keep the county in Tier 2 — the “red tier” — denoting substantial transmission of the illness. The tier is the second-most restrictive in the state’s reopening guidelines.
