SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA — The Santa Clara County Public Health Department reported 116 additional coronavirus cases Tuesday.

The latest announcement brings the countywide COVID-19 case count to 4,370.

The county reported no new coronavirus-related fatalities, leaving its COVID-19 death toll at 156.

There were 85 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in Santa Clara County as of Tuesday, of which 33 were being treated in intensive care units.

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and Public Health Department held a joint meeting Monday with the San Jose City Council to preview the county’s new reopening plan that will be released later this week.

The new plan will include across-the-board guidelines for all open businesses, with some more restrictive guidelines for higher risk activities that will be applicable for the long-term. This also means that some businesses will be deemed too high-risk to open up for the time being.

Elsewhere around the Bay Area and beyond, Alameda County officials are reversing their plan to move the county to greater socialization and business activity amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, health officials said Monday, citing an increase in hospitalizations from the virus and a rising rate of cases.
