Napa County reported 7 additional COVID-19 cases on Saturday, though no new deaths and no new hospitalizations. All 7 cases are linked to a single previously confirmed case, the county said.
That brings the total to 90 cases, with three deaths. The county said the locations of the new cases would not be available until Monday, the next time the official website is updated.
County officials did, however post some additional details on Facebook after commenters expressed alarm at the apparent spike in cases.
"Today’s confirmed cases are linked to a previous case and are the result of household exposure," they wrote. "There is no suspected community exposure or link to the general public as a result of these cases."
As of Saturday morning, there had been 76,942 confirmed cases in California, with 3,154 deaths, and more than 1.4 million nationwide, with more than 87,000 deaths.
