Coronavirus Numbers Top 430 On Central, South Coasts; Region Has Seven Related Deaths

The number of coronavirus cases on the Central and South Coasts now tops 430.

Ventura County has 189 cases, Santa Barbara County 152, and San Luis Obispo County 93, for a regional total of 434.

There have been seven deaths in the region, but no new ones were reported Friday. 

Officials are urging people to follow stay at home orders this weekend.  They're concerned that even with many of the region's beaches, parks, and trails closed, some people will do what they did last weekend and violate social distancing guidelines.
