The state does not provide specific geographic or demographic details of the reported new cases, and the county does not provide coronavirus updates on the weekends.

One is a death at the Lompoc Federal Prison Complex that the county has not confirmed, pending autopsy results. Another was announced last week with no details.
Santa Barbara County’s next COVID-19 update is expected Monday afternoon.
