SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — One-hundred and twenty-four new coronavirus cases were reported in Orange County on Saturday and two additional deaths.
A total of 1,969 cases and 38 deaths have been confirmed in Orange County during this outbreak among the 23,285 people tested, officials said.
Within the county, 2% of cases involve people under 18, 8% are between 18-24, 16% are between 25-34, 14% are between 35-44, 39% are between 45-64, and 21% are 65 or older.
In the neighboring Los Angeles County, beaches and non-essential businesses remain closed to slow the spread of coronavirus, but in Orange County there were some crowds seen at beaches as temperatures rose as a heatwave lingered over Southern California.
Orange County beach parking lots are closed — despite people being allowed on the sand — in order to keep crowds from getting too large.
“It’s an effort for people to stay in their neighborhoods,” Braun said. “We’re taking an education approach first and volunteer compliance. No reports of any large-scale issues.”
Here is the latest list of Orange County cities with positive COVID-19 cases.
