Why are we, Catalina Island residents, NOT becoming ill. I do see quite a few adults out in small groups meandering about after dark. Have any residents been infected by this COVID?

Please note the date this question was addressed by CIMC staff. Some information may have changed. For up-to-date information click here.

Thus far, we have been fortunate to have avoided community transmission of coronavirus on Catalina Island. We are exploring the degree to which CIMC can act as a public health entity to identify COVID-19 cases and test/track potential high-risk contacts, which would normally be the job of Los Angeles Public Health. We will post the number of COVID-19 tests sent and the number positive on our website to keep the community informed.
