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

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!
