Madera County Reports 75 New Cases; Total at 784

MADERA — Madera County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) officials reported 71 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, raising the total number of cases countywide to 784.

Tuesday’s update also includes cases confirmed on Monday, when Governor Newsom ordered all Madera County bars to close again and curtailed indoor dining at county restaurants because of the recent surge in local cases.

As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, MCDPH was reporting a total of 395 currently active cases. 

Health officials say they also are currently “monitoring” 447 other people for COVID-19 — and have now tested 10,600 county residents since the pandemic began.

Fourteen county residents are currently hospitalized with COVID-19 and there have been seven deaths, including a 54-year-old individual who died over the weekend — and whose only underlying health issue was pre-diabetes.

According to MCDPH’s data dashboard, a total of 42 cases have now been confirmed in Reporting Area D — which includes the eastern Madera County foothills and mountain communities. No new cases were confirmed in Reporting Area D over the past 48 hours.
