New COVID-19 cases dropped to their lowest weekly level since October, Napa County reported Friday.

Also, the county went a full week without a reported death, the longest stretch since mid-December.

Since last March, 75 Napa County residents have died from the COVID-19 virus and 9,161 have tested positive. Only 88 positive cases were reported by the county this week, the lowest number in 19 weeks.

At week’s end, the county reported that 63,908 doses of COVID vaccine had been administered to people living and working in the county, an increase of 515 doses since Thursday’s report.

Among recent cases, 55% were females, and 49% identified as Hispanic/Latinx. The average age was 39. The highest proportion of new cases — 25% — was people in their 30s, followed by people in their 20 at 18%.
