Two more coronavirus related deaths are being reported on the Central and South Coasts.  There was one reported in Ventura County and one in Santa Barbara County Friday.

There have now been 280 deaths in the region since the start of the pandemic.

There is some good news about the number of new cases reported, with the latest total of 111 on the low side.  Ventura County had 40, Santa Barbara County 43, and San Luis Obispo County 28. Getting those numbers down for an extended period of time is critical for the counties to move to the next level of reopenings.
