The number of COVID-19 cases is on the rise in Sacramento County with 6,100 cases Wednesday, up 3,000 from since the middle of June, according to the county’s Department of Health Services.

“We’ve gone from 2,000 total cases in the first 18 to 19 weeks to 1,000 a week right now. So it’s a significant increase in the number of cases,” explained Sacramento County Health Services Director Dr. Peter Beilenson.

Beilenson told FOX40 there are some businesses who are supposed to be closed, which may still be operating.

“I think that it’s a real minority of the entities that are not behaving well,” Beilenson said. “I’d say five to 10 entities in the county that have three or more complaints about them.”

Beilenson said the county is relying on the general public to report others.

“We would encourage people to report to 311,” said Beilenson. “The message to them is that we will find you.”

If you see a business that shouldn’t be open or a large group gathering, calling 311 is the best tool to let the county’s health department know.
