State officials announce latest COVID-19 facts

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19.

According to the CDPH, California has 784,324 confirmed cases to date. Numbers may not represent true day-over-day change as reporting of test results can be delayed.

There were 2,630 newly recorded confirmed cases Monday. Numbers do not represent true day-over-day change as these results include cases from prior to yesterday.

The 7-day positivity rate is 2.8 percent and the 14-day positivity rate is 3.0 percent.

There have been 13,804,055 tests conducted in California. This represents an increase of 131,273 over the prior 24-hour reporting period.

There have been 15,071 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic.

The testing turnaround dashboard reports how long California patients are waiting for COVID-19 test results. During the week of September 6 to September 12, the average time patients waited for test results was 1.2 days. During this same time period, 69 percent of patients received test results in 1 day and 90 percent received them within two days. The testing turnaround time dashboard is updated weekly.

As of September 22, California’s testing capacity and turnaround time have improved. As a result and until further notice, all four tiers in the Testing Prioritization Guidance originally dated July 14, 2020, will have equal priority for testing.
