The number of confirmed coronavirus cases on the Central and South Coasts continued to grow over the weekend.  427 additional cases were reported for the Saturday through Monday period.

Ventura County added 265 cases, Santa Barbara County 84, and San Luis Obispo County 78.  More than 24,600 cases have been reported since the start of the pandemic, with most of those diagnosed already recovered.

The three counties remain at the state’s purple guidance level, which is the furthest from more reopenings.  The state will issue a report on the progress of the state’s 58 counties Tuesday.

283 coronavirus deaths have been reported in the region, with 146 in Ventura County, 110 in Santa Barbara County, and 27 in San Luis Obispo County.  The nation’s death toll related to the virus now tops 200,000.
