There have been 53 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Piedmont since last week, according to the Alameda County Health Department’s COVID-19 dashboard. COVID case counts in Piedmont on Tuesday stood at 1,534 — up from 1,481 on July 12. (Case data is updated daily but may change as the county reconciles its records. Official numbers do not reflect actual local case numbers due to increased use of home testing.)
Despite the move by the LA County to reimpose an indoor mask mandate next week due to rising COVID rates, Bay Area health officials told the San Francisco Chronicle that there are no plans at this moment to follow suit as hospitalizations here remain low.
