This week, Santa Clara County reached some grim milestones: over 100,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 1,300 COVID-19 related deaths over the course of the pandemic. This weekend also marks the 1-year anniversary of the first confirmed COVID-19 case in Santa Clara County.
With those over 65 years of age making up over 80% of COVID-related deaths, the County has expanded eligibility for the vaccine to those who are 65 and over. Check eligibility updates and/or schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine at sccFreeVax.org.
On Monday, January 25th, the State announced the lifting of its Regional Stay at Home Order. As a result, Santa Clara County moved back into the Purple Tier of the State's "Blueprint for a Safer Economy". Find detailed information on the new changes at sccgov.org/cv19order. Please note that County and State restrictions may differ, and that the stricter of the two should be followed.
Our condolences to all who have lost a loved one this past year. Let us all stay strong as we continue to fight through this pandemic.
Together in health,
County of Santa Clara
