Tracking COVID in Piedmont | Feb. 16

According to the most recent update from the Alameda County Office of Public Health on Feb. 16, total coronavirus cases in Piedmont as of today stood at 167, up from 165 on Friday.

Alameda County’s standing, per the LA Times:

  • Virus transmission in Alameda County is rated as widespread by the governor’s reopening regime, which places the area in Tier 1 and keeps many nonessential businesses closed.
  • Over the past seven days, the county has reported an average of 295.1 new cases per day, a 39.8% decrease from two weeks ago. Over that same period, there have been 11.4 deaths per day.
  • The number of hospitalizations is decreasing. There are now 207 patients with a confirmed case, a decrease from fourteen days ago.

Additionally, Alameda County’s adjusted case rate per 100,000 fell to 12.6 from 18.1 last week — a welcome move in the right direction for families with students in middle and upper schools. A move into the Red Tier (7 cases per 100,000) will trigger a move to hybrid learning.

(Note: The county database is updated daily, but counts for a particular past date can change as records are adjusted, per a caveat on the county’s data dashboard.)
