Anaheim cases: 13,862
With last week's holiday, it's been a couple weeks since we provided an email update on COVID-19 cases for Anaheim and Orange County.
A lot has changed in that time for Anaheim and Orange County.
If you've been following us on social media, you've likely seen the rapid increase of new cases reported in our daily updates. We are seeing a coronavirus surge that has already outpaced the peak we saw during our summer surge in July.
Anaheim saw an increase of 1,190 cases in the past seven days, while Orange County saw 7,792 new cases in that time.
Anaheim is at a cumulative 13,862 cases, with 1,466 among children.
Orange County is at a cumulative 82,887 cases, with 6,902 among children.
Sadly, Anaheim has seen 349 people pass from complications of COVID-19, the condition caused by coronavirus. The county has seen a total 1,603 deaths.
Our hearts go out to the family and friends who have lost someone dear to them.
As of Dec. 4, the county has processed 1,512,749 polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, tests, the standard for diagnosing COVID-19 cases.
Orange County, along with much of California, remains in the most restrictive purple Tier 1 category based on our case rate and positivity rate. This is the most restrictive tier in the state's color-coded reopening framework, which determines what businesses can be open with modifications.
The county's current case rate is 22.2 per 100,000 residents.
The county's current positivity rate is 8.8 percent.
We're also currently under a limited stay-at-home order from the state, which restricts business operations and gatherings in the overnight hours.
In the coming days, we could see Anaheim, as part of a larger Southern California region defined by the state's road to recovery task force, move into a more restrictive stay-at-home order. More on that below.
