Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) reports an additional 109 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county today. 102 of the new cases are at the Federal Prison Complex in Lompoc, CA. The total number of confirmed cases is 722 of which 360 have fully recovered.

Although most cases of COVID-19 exhibit mild or moderate symptoms, PHD recommends additional measures to prevent exposure among vulnerable people, including the elderly and those with underlying health conditions (such as diabetes, cancer, immunodeficiency, asthma, COPD and others). PHD recommends that residents, especially those who are vulnerable:

  • Stay home except for essential tasks. Ensure you have a two-week supply of medication on hand.
  • When engaging in essential tasks away from home, remain 6 feet away from others and wear a facial covering.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water regularly.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Keep surfaces clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant

This data isn't accurate or up-to-date. The Federal Bureau of Prisons (https://www.bop.gov/coronavirus/) as well as Noozhawk and The Indpendent are reporting ~600 cases for Lompoc prison alone.

@9:43am: I think their chart is confusing too. I'm not certain, but I think what Edhat is trying to say is that the prison cases are not included in the age breakdown chart.

It says "100 of the new cases are at the Federal Prison Complex in Lompoc, CA." Then it says in an asterix, "* 102 new COVID-19 cases are from the Federal Prison Complex are not included." Which is it? 100 or 102?
