City Statement on Temporary Spike in Newport Beach COVID-19 Cases
Return to full list >>
The number of COVID-19 cases in Newport Beach is temporarily spiking due to, in large part, outbreaks inside a small number of local care facilities where patients and staff have tested positive.
Since these facilities are located in Newport Beach, the County assigns the cases to Newport Beach. We may have more cases as additional patients and staff are tested.
County public health officers and Newport Beach Fire Department officials have met with the CEOs, head nurses and other top staff at the facilities to ensure that best practices are in place to mitigate further spread of the virus.
