SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - Santa Barbara County reported 78 new coronavirus cases Tuesday. There are now 7,074 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County, including 73 deaths.

6,055 of those cases are members of the community and 1,019 are inmates at the Lompoc prison.

Of the 73 coronavirus-related deaths in the county, 3 were inmates of the prison. At least 9 residents of a Santa Maria nursing home have died of the disease.

310 people in the community are considered still infectious and 76 people are hospitalized, 31 of which are currently in the ICU.

5,675 people in the community and 1,016 inmates at the Lompoc Federal Correctional Complex are considered recovered.

More than 90,000 tests have been conducted so far.

At least 357 of those positive cases are health care workers, according to the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department.

Santa Barbara County says many of these current cases are being under-reported due to an issue with the state's electronic reporting system. The current data posts on the county's website is likely to be an underestimate of actual case totals, the county public health department said.

A full breakdown of the cases on the county's website.

County press briefings will be broadcast on KEYT NewsChannel 3, the News Now Channel and streaming on our website.

Totals provided by the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and Santa Barbara County Public Health Department are different due to a difference in reporting methods: the BOP reports both lab diagnosed and clinically diagnosed cases of COVID-19 while the County only reports lab diagnosed cases. Lab diagnoses are the number of cases reported by labs based on COVID-19 test results. Clinical diagnoses are made by doctors based on a patient's reported symptoms and are not based on a lab test result.

  1. Good evening!

    Please update your tallies and/or clarify.

    Your total number of infections is listed as 88 but the data listed does not add up to that number. Where does the error lie?

    Thanks very much!
