COVID-19 Local Metrics
The Orange County Health Care Agency reports city-related data for COVID-19 cases daily. The information, along with vaccine information and other test figures, are available on their website.
Because transmission is occurring throughout Orange County, it is important for all residents to continue practicing social-distancing, as directed by the Governor and the Orange County Health Officer, regardless of case count in a particular city. Doing so will help to reduce the spread of infection, ease the burden on our hospital and healthcare system, and protect those most vulnerable in our county.

Beginning December 15, CDPH will require masks to be worn in all indoor public settings irrespective of vaccine status through January 15, 2022, at which point California will make further recommendations as needed. Additionally, CDPH updated requirements for attending mega events, like concerts and sporting events, and a travel advisory.
