MADERA — Late Saturday afternoon, Madera County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) officials said there had been no new cases over the past 24 hours. MCDPH reported the two latest confirmed local cases of the COVID-19 on Friday. Those cases — a man and a woman both in their 40s — bring the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases so far to 32.
Friday’s latest cases were the first to be reported by county health officials since April 4.
MCDPH Director Sara Bosse is encouraging county residents to “stay the course” in terms of social distancing and said late last week that she does not believe the county has seen the “peak” of cases yet.
As of Friday evening, the last time the individual case specifics were updated, county health officials were monitoring 19 active cases — and an additional 73 home-isolating individuals for signs of the coronavirus.
Eleven people around the county who contracted the virus are now fully recovered and two people have died.
Statewide as of 9 a.m. Sunday, there were 22,424 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with the death toll now standing at 634.
According to its latest report, MCDPH has now monitored a total of 525 county residents for signs of coronavirus.
