COVID-19 cases are high and monkeypox cases are relatively low in San Mateo County where health officials are encouraging the public to practice strong preventative measures against both illnesses rather than mandate safety measures.

For weeks now, the county has remained in the “high risk” tier within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 Data Tracking Dashboard. During a COVID-19 update provided during Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting Marc Meulman, director of Public Health, Policy and Planning, noted that the county’s hospitalization rate has ranged between 30 to 60 patients per day over the past few months.
