The district has seen an increase in new cases, but the number of hospital and intensive care patients remains stable
The total number of new COVID-19 cases in San Luis Obispo County increased by 23 over the weekend, according to the latest data released by San Luis Obispo County.
New cases come mainly from close contacts (family) and community distribution, where a group of cases can be traced back to graduates.
I understand that the increase in the number of cases in recent days may be a cause for concern for some, but it’s not unexpected because we continue to reopen in the light of the pandemic, said Dr. Penny Borenstein, District Health Inspector. However, the number of cases in our hospital is still low and the number of cases in intensive care is currently very low, which we will both keep a very close eye on.
To date, 347 confirmed COVID 19 cases have been reported in the San Luis Obispo district. Of the 14,516 tests carried out, 102 were confirmed by the ASO public health laboratory and 245 by private laboratories. The number of hospital and intensive care patients remains stable.
Status of cases : 15. June 2020:
- 59 active cases in the UFO district
- 54 Leisure centre
- 5 hospital stays (3 in intensive care)
- Of the 23 newly confirmed cases over the weekend:
- 14 refer to the interpersonal distribution
- 1 refers to the journey
- 5 attributed to distribution in the community (not related to a trip or a known case)
- 3 are still under investigation.

State update of COVID-19 guidelines for activities protected by the first entry
The Department of Health has recently issued updated guidelines on activities protected under the US First Amendment, including places of worship, religious services and cultural ceremonies, as well as other constitutionally protected activities, such as the right to protest.
These outdoor activities are no longer restricted as long as strict measures of physical distance apply.
Exercising our right to peacefully protest and visit the church is an American value, said Dr. Penny Borenstein, District Health Commissioner of ASO. Nevertheless, we must all be aware of the precautions that each of us must take to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Although the new government increases restrictions on outdoor activities with the first amendment, the number of people attending an internal service or event is still limited to 100 or 25% of the building’s capacity, whichever is lower. A strict policy of physical distance must also be applied.
This new national directive replaces the one adopted in May and does not oblige places of worship to resume their personal activities. It is strongly recommended that places of worship continue to promote distance worship and other relevant activities for people at risk of VIDOC-19, including the elderly and people with related diseases.
All persons with symptoms of COVID-19 should stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Symptoms of COWID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. Less common symptoms are fatigue, body aches, chills, sore throat and possibly runny nose or diarrhea.
Elderly people and people with a suitable medical condition are particularly sensitive to VIDOC-19. Anyone with these symptoms should be tested in one of the many free test centres in the province. For more information on how to get tested: emergencySLO.org/testing
