After re-opening to the public in late May, a manager at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa tested positive for the coronavirus, the resort said Friday.
The manager doesn’t have symptoms or direct contact with guests and has been told not to report to work until medically cleared to do so, the resort said in a statement.
Another 11 employees who interacted with the manager haven’t reported any symptoms but they are being tested for the virus and are also staying away from work for now.
The California Department of Public Health said Friday June 12, 2020, the most recent statistics on COVID-19. California’s positivity rate – a key indicator of community spread — remains stable in the 14-day average. Hospitalization rates remain stable over the long-term while showing a slight uptick in the 14-day average. California has 141,983 confirmed cases to date, and 2,662,258 tests have been conducted in California. As testing capacity continues to increase across the state, an increase in the number of positive cases has been expected – increasing the importance of positivity rates to find signs of community spread. There have been 4,943 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
