Covid Cases in Sonoma County May Be Higher than Reported

Public health officials and experts believe Sonoma County is dealing with more COVID cases than the data suggests. That’s because of a significant drop in testing. As of the most recent stats, from the end of December, about 60 residents are getting infected per day. On December 30th, there were 676 COVID tests logged in Sonoma County. On the same day a year earlier, there were more than 62-hundred tests logged. And in December of 2021, the county was averaging 500 positive tests per day. Public officials believe there is likely a lack of reporting on self-administered COVID tests, skewing the number of positive results.
