June 11, 2021
Anaheim continues to recover from the coronavirus outbreak with vaccines, testing, community assistance and updates at Anaheim.net/coronavirus and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The newsletter is a weekly summary. This week's issue includes:

  • Newsletter update
  • Anaheim and OC cases
  • Reopening
  • Vaccines

We thank everyone in Anaheim for doing your part to fight coronavirus in our community, and we want you to know that as your city, we're here for you.
Newsletter update
This newsletter has been a weekly source of COVID-19 information since the pandemic began last year. Throughout this crisis, we've used it to keep our community informed and help share information about case rates, business closures, testing and vaccines.

As we approach the June 15 reopening date for California, we're getting back to normal in Anaheim. That's a great thing to see, and we're looking forward to putting the COVID-19 nightmare behind us.

Accordingly, this will be our final COVID-19 issue of Andy's Updates. Starting in July, we'll resume our monthly newsletters sharing all things Anaheim, including pertinent COVID-19 updates as well as other city news, from new park projects to community events.

We have positive things to share again, and we're looking forward to doing so.

We will continue to provide timely updates at Anaheim.net/coronavirus and on social media as appropriate.

We thank everyone for doing your part throughout the pandemic to keep Anaheim safe. We got through it together.
Anaheim cases
We continue to see low COVID-19 case numbers for Anaheim and Orange County as vaccinations stop the spread of the virus.

Anaheim saw an increase of 26 cases in the past seven days, down from 27 new cases the week prior, while Orange County saw 217 new cases, up from 207 last week.

Anaheim is at a cumulative 42,053 cases, with 5,409 among children. 

Orange County is at a cumulative 255,588 cases, with 26,814 among children.

Sadly, Anaheim has seen 891 people pass from complications of COVID-19, the condition caused by coronavirus. The county has seen a total of 5,095 deaths.

Our hearts go out to the families who have lost someone dear to them.

Anaheim and Orange County are currently in yellow Tier 4, the most permissive in the state's reopening framework.

The colored, restrictive tier system is set to be retired on Tuesday, June 15, with Anaheim, Orange County and all of California moving to largely normal operations. The next phase of reopening is known as Beyond the Blueprint.

The county's current case rate is 0.8 per 100,000 residents.

The county's current positivity rate is 0.7 percent.

The county's current positivity rate among our harder-hit, low-income communities is 0.8 percent.

We continue to dispense vaccines in our city at community centers and mobile clinics in neighborhoods. Vaccines are also widely available through pharmacies, grocery stores and other healthcare providers.

In our data below we include the percent of Anaheim residents vaccinated.

As of June 7, 49.3 percent of our city is fully vaccinated, while 60.7 percent have received at least one shot on their way to full vaccination.

Reopening: What happens on June 15
The reopening of Anaheim and all of California takes another step forward on Tuesday, June 15, with the retirement of reopening tiers and guidelines.
 
In short, that means the guidelines we’ve come to live by with respect to social distancing, masking (for those vaccinated) and capacity limits will largely go away. And many of our familiar pre-pandemic routines will return.
 
Here’s a closer look at what to expect come June 15.
 
Industries, sectors and businesses
All return to largely normal operations, with some remaining rules for large events.
 
Mask requirement
Defaults to March 13 Centers for Disease Control guidance, allowing fully vaccinated people to go without masks and social distancing other than in high-risk settings such as air travel, public transit, healthcare and homeless shelters.
 
Employers will follow mask guidelines set by Cal-OSHA, which are set to be revised again on June 17. And mask requirements will remain unchanged for now in K-12 school settings, day camps and other supervised youth activities.
 
Capacity limits
No specific capacity requirements remain beyond normal restrictions from fire or other local agencies.
 
Large events
No capacity limits, no social distancing requirements; vaccine verification or negative test required for indoor events of 5,000 or more, recommended but not required for outdoor events of more than 10,000.

We know the past 15 months have been unprecedented. We're so proud of everyone's efforts to fight COVID, reduce spread and get vaccinated so we could get to where we are today. And to finally celebrate the full reopening of our city and Anaheim's comeback!

Curbside vaccines? It's a thing
With the closure of the Super PODs in Anaheim and Orange County, vaccine clinics have gone mobile.

Curbside clinics
The county of Orange is hosting small clinics throughout Anaheim in the coming weeks, offering free vaccines to anyone age 12 and older. No appointments are needed, you can just walk right up to get your shot.

Many take place right at the curbside in your neighborhood or your local grocery store. What could be easier?

Find a clinic near you at Othena.com or call (714) 834-2000.

Neighborhood clinics
Anaheim is hosting local clinics as well, including one tomorrow, June 12 at Downtown Anaheim Community Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can make an appointment for a Pfizer shot here or just walk in.

In addition, we're partnering with the county to host a weekly vaccine clinic at Brookhurst Community Center, 2271 Crescent Ave., every Monday starting June 21 from 4-7 p.m. You can make an appointment at Othena.com or just walk in. We're offering all three vaccines: Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.

Next week, Vineyard Church, 5340 E. La Palma Ave., will also host a two-day free vaccine clinic on June 16 and 17 from 8 a.m. to noon, offering Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. No appointment needed.

Angels Baseball clinic
You can even get vaccinated at Angel Stadium of Anaheim!

Angels Baseball is hosting a free vaccination clinic with the Pfizer vaccine at the stadium on June 15 from 3-6 p.m. The first 150 people to get vaccinated get four free MVP field level tickets to the next game.

Make an appointment here.

Vaccines are also widely available at grocery stores, pharmacies and doctor's offices.

Getting vaccinated is easier than ever, and as we get closer to the June 15 reopening of our state, it's even more important to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting sick.

Plus, you could win big!

Three lucky Orange County residents have already won $50,000 and everyone who gets vaccinated is in the running to win $1.5 million on Tuesday thanks to the state's Vax for the Win program.

So don't wait any longer, get vaccinated now.
