Placer County Covid Updates

Encouraging signs as hospitalizations continue downward

Updated: January 22, 2021

Roseville, CA- Covid-19 hospitalizations in Placer County are following a downward trend while deaths continue to surpass model forecasts.

The forecast models out of Stanford and UCLA projected Placer County would enter the downward trajectory mid-January. Those two models have been the most accurate to date on hospitalizations.

Healthcare system

Since the beginning of the pandemic, one of the key concerns is the ability of healthcare system to manage the potential influx of Covid-19 patients, while still maintaining sufficient health services for the community. Placer County doesn’t operate in an isolated bubble and also accommodates neighboring counties.

“Placer County’s two largest hospitals lie on the Placer-Sacramento County border and provide care to residents of both counties, as well as other neighboring counties.”
