“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of this teen and to the families and friends of the more than 2,000 San Diegans who have died of COVID-19 throughout the course of this pandemic,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “We understand that the pandemic has been trying on the community, but today’s report is a reminder that we must do everything we can to protect each other and slow the spread of COVID-19.”

Wooten continues to urge San Diegans to do the following:

  • Wash your hands
  • Watch your distance around others
  • Wear a mask
