November Worst Month for Piedmont Covid 19 Cases

Covid-19 Spreading at a Faster Pace in Piedmont

Thanksgiving Week in Piedmont began with more new Covid-19 positive cases reported, for a total of 59 Piedmont cases as the region spirals upward.  (UPDATE 66 total Piedmont positive tests reported on November 24,  corrected to 65 on November 28.)  Due to a rapid rise in Covid-19 cases, the State of California moved Alameda County – along with 40 other counties –  to the Purple Tier, the most restrictive level on November 16, 2020.

At the end of October, Piedmont had reached a total of 42 cases since testing began.  There were five new cases by November 4 and seven in the most recent week of November 16 to 23.   In the first three weeks of November, a total of 17 Piedmonters tested positive.  That is more than the total cases in March, April, May and June combined.  Piedmont did not reach a total of 17 Covid-19 cases until July 14, 2020.

Celebrate Thanksgiving Safely!
