LATEST June 16, 11:30 a.m. The state of California confirmed 3,469 new cases of the coronavirus Monday, a number that drew scrutiny from critics of the California governor’s plan to reopen businesses. The new cases bring the total across the state to 155,596, and 31 new confirmed deaths bring the state death toll to 5,113.

Newsom has been citing the state’s low hospitalization rate as the reason for green-lighting reopening efforts. A slight rise in such cases Monday, to 4,323, is an increase of 76 since Friday. The Mercury News reports the rise is the “first increase in total hospitalizations since June 9.”

June 16, 11:03 a.m. Here’s a rundown of new cases reported in Bay Area counties Tuesday. This list will be updated as more counties release information.

–San Francisco reported 19 new cases, bringing its total to 2,971. The death toll remains 46.

–San Mateo announced 31 new cases to increase its total to 2,625. The death toll remains 99.

June 16, 10:50 a.m. Santa Clara County announced that it is offering free COVID-19 testing at all at six pop-up sites in Cupertino, Los Altos, Palo Alto and San Jose.

Testing is available without an appointment, insurance, or a doctor’s note, and regardless of immigration status.

June 16, 8:20 a.m. Three workers at a winery in Sonoma County tested positive this week for COVID-19, according to the Press Democrat.

The employees worked in production and didn’t have contact with the public in their jobs.

Sonoma County Health Offier Dr. Sundari Mase didn’t name the winery and told the Press Democrat, “I can’t from a public health perspective give it to you.”

This news comes after 14 employees at a winery in the county tested positive last month.

As of June 14, Sonoma County has 758 confirmed cases, up 36 cases in the last 24 hours, Mase said in a video message posted on Facebook Monday. The county has implemented about 35,000 tests.

The county permitted wineries to open tasting rooms with safety protocols in place on Friday. Previously, wineries could only serve wine if food service was also provided. Now they can offer tastings without food, Mase said.

The modification to the order doesn’t allow bars and pubs to reopen without meal service.

June 16, 7:30 a.m. The total number of coronavirus cases in the world surpassed 8 million Tuesday morning, according to Johns Hopkins University. There have been 436,000 deaths.
