On Thurs­day, the Solano County In­ci­dent Com­man­der and Public Health Of­fi­cer de­clared that an ex­treme threat to public health now ex­ists in Solano County after a county res­i­dent was found to have been in­fected by the virus.

“The City of Beni­cia will com­ply with all steps re­quested by the Public Health Of­fi­cer to pre­vent the spread of COVID-19 and to pre­vent or al­le­vi­ate ill­ness or death due to the virus,” ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from the city. “The Beni­cia Emer­gency Op­er­a­tions Cen­ter re­mains in mon­i­tor­ing sta­tus in sup­port of Solano

County Public Health.”

Novel Coro­n­avirus (COVID-19) is a re­s­pi­ra­tory ill­ness that can spread from per­son to per­son. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coro­n­avirus that was first iden­ti­fied dur­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into an out­break in Wuhan, China.

Beni­cia is work­ing closely with Solano County Public Health, lo­cal health care providers, Bay Area health de­part­ments, Solano County Of­fice of Emer­gency Ser­vices, the Cal­i­for­nia De­part­ment of Public Health, and the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol & Preven­tion, of­fi­cials added.

This is an emerg­ing, rapidly evolv­ing sit­u­a­tion, and the city of Beni­cia will share up­dated in­for­ma­tion as it be­comes avail­able, of­fi­cials said.
