New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County

Post Date:05/15/2020 6:10 PM

Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) reports an additional 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county today. Five of the new cases are at the Federal Prison Complex in Lompoc. The total number of confirmed cases is 1402 and 506 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
