Vaccination clinics in the Sonoma Valley this week
70 percent of our eligible population in the county have now received at least one dose of the vaccine! Just a few weeks ago, vaccine appointments were hard to come by. Now there are many and anyone aged 12 or over who wishes can get an appointment at one of the many clinics, pharmacies or health centers in the county, often on the same day. Many also accept walk-in patients. Just go to My tour.ca.gov to find an appointment that suits you and find a list of local clinics on the Sonoma Valley Health Partner Website.

Reopening of metrics and case rates
Sonoma County remains in the “orange” level in the the state framework. California and Sonoma County are on track to reopen completely by June 15, if hospitalizations remain low and Californians continue to be vaccinated. When California fully reopens the economy, the state will move “beyond the blueprint” to a more secure economy. Common sense health measures such as masking will remain statewide.
This week, the county’s adjusted case rate held steady at 2.2 new daily cases per 100,000, a 0.7% test positivity rate, And one action measurement positivity rate of 1.2. If Sonoma County’s case rate drops below 2, the county could move to the less restrictive “yellow” level.
Want to help Sonoma County get into an even less restrictive level and fully reopen by June 15? Keep up the good work by continuing to follow the mitigation measures we all know by now – wear your mask in indoor public spaces and in crowds, keep your distance, practice good hand hygiene, limit gatherings and consider yourself get tested for COVID-19.
Stay Safe Sonoma! Residents are encouraged to follow appropriate protocols during Memorial Day
As an increasing number of us are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, health officials say we must all continue to use appropriate mitigation measures as there is an ongoing risk of transmission, especially to approaching Memorial Day weekend. CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky said on Tuesday those who are not vaccinated are still at risk and should wear masks where appropriate and consider taking advantage of the long weekend to get vaccinated. She urged those who are fully vaccinated to have a “happy and safe” weekend.
