There has been an 81.54% and 67.64% increase in testing at CVSP and ASP respectively, over the last 7 days. The increase in testing is a positive improvement in the facilities’ management of the disease.

There are no confirmed cases in CDCR facilities located in Sacramento County, Amador County & San Joaquin County. Facilities in these 3 counties are continuing to test for the virus.

Note: The definition of tested aligns with that prescribed by Johns Hopkins University. Patients are considered to be tested only when the test result is returned, i.e. the testing count reported by a facility includes the total number of tests for which results have returned, and not the total number of tests administered.
