ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 25, 2020) — Anaheim continues to follow the global coronavirus outbreak with no cases reported in our city.
We are in contact with the Orange County Health Care Agency, tracking a federal proposal to bring patients to Costa Mesa and following updates from the federal Centers for Disease Control.
As of late February, there has been only one known case of coronavirus in Orange County, in the city of Irvine. The patient has recovered.
On Tuesday, a CDC official reaffirmed that the immediate public risk of coronavirus remains low but communities could see new or additional cases.
Beyond general precautions, there are no specific concerns for Anaheim.
The risk of catching coronavirus in public places is minimal, according to the CDC.
If you have not been to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy or Iran recently, the risk of infection remains low.
