Anaheim cases: 36,705
We continue to see many new COVID-19 cases in Anaheim and Orange County but there is some stabilization and signs of improvement.
While we are not out of the woods yet, we can find some optimism in that it appears we may be starting to flatten the curve of this winter surge.
Continue to fight COVID in all you do so we can -- finally -- get past this pandemic together.

Orange County, along with a broader Southern California region, remains under a regional stay home order due to low ICU bed availability.
It's our best guess that the order will be in effect into February based on current trends in cases and hospitalizations.
