Bay Area

SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Sonoma County is the latest county on the state’s radar.

The county will be monitored by California health officials for three days. This after reporting a greater than 10% increase in hospitalizations in a three-day period.

Hospitalizations are at 62% from July 5 through July 7.

Additionally, the number of deaths doubled in a week from five to 11.

Sonoma County was added to the state’s watch list Tuesday. If things don’t improve within the county over three days, it will be closed.

Napa County is the latest Bay Area county to be added to California’s COVID-19 watch list. Business owners were told earlier this week to prepare to shut down after the county reported a rise in cases.
