Mark Larson: COVID-19 tier system impact in San Diego County

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego County public health officials have reported 443 new COVID-19 cases and three additional deaths from the illness, raising the county’s cumulative totals to 40,342 cases and 704 fatalities Saturday.

Mark Larson, KUSI Contributor, AM 760 Radio Host said on Good Morning San Diego he is anticipating the new 4 tier impact with the first weekly assessment Tuesday and the cases coming out of SDSU are going to be bad for the county.

The number of community outbreaks remains well above the county’s goal of fewer than seven in a seven-day span. A community setting outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households in the past 14 days.

San Diego State University reported another 120 confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases among its student population Friday, raising the university’s total caseload to 184 since fall semester began Aug. 24.
