Tracking COVID in Piedmont | Sept. 21

Cases bumped up by three over the weekend, from 250 last Friday to 253 on Tuesday.

Piedmont is fast approaching a 90% fully vaccinated status among all eligible residents.

Alameda County update from the San Francisco Chronicle on Sept. 21:

Alameda County official says ‘worst’ of surge is over, but fall uptick looms: The seven-day average of daily coronavirus cases in Alameda County — 12.2 per 100,000 residents as of Tuesday — is now less than half of what it was during the peak of the summer delta COVID surge in late August (30 per 100,000 residents). The county is “clearly through the worst of this summer wave,” Dr. Nicholas Moss, the county’s health director, said Tuesday at a Board of Supervisors meeting. But he cautioned “plenty of people” remain hospitalized, and relaxed attitudes around the virus could well stall progress: “Because some people’s behaviors are different, it could be a little different this time around. We may not see levels drop to low levels with this surge.” Moss also said some projections show that despite high vaccination rates, California could see a repeat of last winter’s surge if restrictions, such as masking, are pulled back. “I don’t think we’re done with this,” he said. “I don’t think that was at the last wave.”
