On Thursday, officials reported another 1,537 cases and three deaths.

The number of people hospitalized with COVID in LA County rose to 452 on Thursday, from 406 on Wednesday. Of those hospitalized, 96 are in intensive care units.

County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said county “isn’t where we need to be” on vaccinations

According to Davis, as of June 11, 10,712,037 doses of vaccine have been administered and 5,067,109 LA County residents have been fully vaccinated.

Davis said that given the increasing spread of the virus, “to wait to do something would be too late.”

Meanwhile Thursday, the Sacramento County Public Health Officer has recommended that fully vaccinated people return to wearing face masks indoors in environments where vaccination verification is not required.

As in LA County, officials said the increase in daily COVID-19 cases appears to be due in part to the Delta variant.
