The following statement accompanied tonight’s updated dashboard:

7 additional cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Mendocino County, bringing the total to 363.

🗣Most significant information gained from this evening’s infographic update provided by Mendocino County Public Health:
📍There are currently 12 individuals hospitalized for complications related to COVID-19, Mendocino County’s highest number yet.
📍70.5% of Mendocino County’s COVID-19 cases originate in the Ukiah Valley.
