There were 17 new COVID-19 cases and one death, Napa County reported Wednesday.
The death — a woman under the age of 65 who died out of county — was the county’s 77th demise since the first fatality last March. There have been 9,208 confirmed cases.
New cases continue at a low rate, with Dr. Karen Relucio, the county’s public health officer, saying Tuesday that Napa might move up into the orange tier at the end of March.
A total of 68,422 vaccine doses have been administered since mid-December, with 19,866 people — 14.2% of the county’s population — fully vaccinated, the county said. The number of fully vaccinated residents will be updated every Tuesday, the county said.
