The Kern County Public Health Services Department has announced that 38 of the local positive COVID-19 cases have been hospitalized at some point during their illness.

The department said the CDC has guidance for releasing positive COVID-19 patients off home or hospital isolation, which is an indicator that patients are no longer infectious. So far, 113 people have met that criteria, KCPH said.
