On Monday, there were 2,004 people hospitalized with confirmed coronavirus infections in L.A. County, a 36% increase from Memorial Day, when 1,477 coronavirus-infected people were hospitalized. The county has now seen 111 confirmed cases and three more labeled as "probable", with 7 deaths being attributed to the illness locally.

In a release from Pacific County Emergency Management, they say they have received notice of an additional positive case of COVID-19 attributed to the county. Of those ten, six were asymptomatic, the health department said.

Testing backlogs have spiked the state's daily new case numbers before, but the Wednesday number so far exceeds the state's previous all-time high of 7,149 reported on June 24, that it can not be ignored. The daily average of new cases is now roughly 30 percent higher than what was a record single-day number at the time. It was the second consecutive day the county has posted a record number of coronavirus-related hospitalizations since the pandemic hit California. And there are 1,005 people in the Melrose neighborhood who have been confirmed to be infected.

Riley County has had a total of 325 positive COVID-19 test results overall, with 232 test results now pending, and 3,125 test coming back negative for COVID-19. The number of recovered cases in the county has risen to 953. The increases last week prompted county officials to warn that local hospitals could become overwhelmed in a matter of two to three weeks. One patient is hospitalized and 32 are isolating at home. The others are Polk with 6,959, an increase of 278 since Tuesday; Woodbury, 3,281, an increase of 24; Black Hawk, 2,395, an increase of 80; Buena Vista, 1,725, an increase of 10; Johnson, 1,373, an increase of 48; Linn, 1,333, an increase of 37; and Dallas, 1,330, an increase of 44. She said the full bookings are the result of two factors - the holiday weekend reduction in available appointments, which led to people scheduling tests later in the week; and an overall large increase in demand of people wanting to be tested.

The increase isn't simply a result of more testing.

On Wednesday, Allegheny County officials extended an order barring indoor dining at bars and restaurants, although outdoor dining, takeout and delivery will be allowed.
