Ten New Cases of COVID-19 Cases Confirmed in Santa Barbara County

Post Date:05/12/2020 6:20 PM

Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) reports an additional 10 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county today. Three of the new cases are at the Federal Prison Complex in Lompoc, CA. One case reported previously was determined not to be a case. The total number of confirmed cases is 1371 of which 495 have fully recovered.

Although most cases of COVID-19 exhibit mild or moderate symptoms, PHD recommends additional measures to prevent exposure among vulnerable people, including the elderly and those with underlying health conditions (such as diabetes, cancer, immunodeficiency, asthma, COPD and others). PHD recommends that residents, especially those who are vulnerable:

  • Stay home except for essential tasks. Ensure you have a two-week supply of medication on hand.
  • When engaging in essential tasks away from home, remain 6 feet away from others and wear a facial covering.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water regularly.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Keep surfaces clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant
