As the number of asymptomatic as well as symptomatic people who test positive for COVID-19 rises in Yolo County and new mask wearing guidelines are implemented, it’s important to remain vigilant and continue to get tested – even if you are fully vaccinated.
The charts below shows the latest COVID-19 variant testing results from Healthy Davis Together for Yolo County. Results are updated weekly.
As part of Healthy Davis Together’s free COVID-19 testing operations, all positive COVID-19 samples are routinely screened by the UC Davis Genome Center for variants, including variants of concern and variants of interest. The new positive COVID-19 cases in Yolo County are nearly all one of the more contagious variants of concern that are now the locally prevalent types.
That’s why testing, especially for people who are not yet vaccinated or who have symptoms remains so important. It is also advisable to get tested when there has been an increased risk of infection (for example, participation in a large, unmasked gathering, travel or exposure to a traveler from a region with high prevalence) to screen for new variants, particularly those that overcome vaccines.
