Tracking COVID in Piedmont | Apr. 12

Thirteen new COVID cases were reported in town since last week, according to Alameda County Health Department’s COVID-19 dashboard. COVID case counts in Piedmont on Tuesday stood at 877, up from 864 one week ago.

We know, anecdotally, that despite low official numbers, residents continue to be exposed and are getting sick with variations of mild illness and most people are testing at home.

The Exedra will continue to report weekly cases from the county. Hospitalizations remain very low.

Piedmont schools are closed this week for Spring Break; school cases won’t be reported on the PUSD dashboard until April 25.

(The county often adjusts numbers up or down as they reconcile their data every week, so that number may change. Also, the wide use of at-home testing may skew the actual case numbers if infected individuals opt not to take PCR tests recorded by the county.)
