Meanwhile, the rate of new COVID-19 cases has climbed countywide to 12.9 per 100,000 people who had been tested, with 753 new cases and three deaths reported over the weekend, according to the data posted today. County data also shows 131 people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19 and 31 of those individuals reported to be in intensive care units.

Sacramento County health officials last week issued a recommendation that masks be worn indoors, even by those who have been vaccinated against the virus, due to the rising number of new cases including the the highly contagious Delta variant. Officials continue to encourage those who are eligible get vaccinated.

Natomas is estimated to have a population of 110,000, according to data on the U.S. Census Bureau website. Breakthrough cases among those who are vaccinated, hospitalizations and death data is not made available by zip code.
