COVID-19 numbers for the Central and South Coasts have been on the low side for the last few weeks, but health experts are worried about what could happen with the arrival of spring break.

Santa Barbara County Public Health officials are urging people to stay local, and continue to social distance and wear masks.  They are now recommending that if you do travel out of state, you quarantine for 10 days when you return, and get tested for the virus.   

122 new COVID-19 cases were reported on the Central and South Coasts Friday.  Ventura County had 62, Santa Barbara County 43, and San Luis Obispo County 17.

There were four additional deaths related to the virus in the region, bringing the total to 1631 since the start of the pandemic.
