Santa Ana Sees Spike in Positive COVID-19 Tests

As new coronavirus cases skyrocket across the U.S., one of Orange County’s hardest hit cities is seeing a new surge in positive test rates. UCI Health said the one-week positivity rate at one of its testing sites in Santa Ana jumped from 8.9% to 20% on Wednesday. Health officials say recent spikes seen in the region can be attributed to large gatherings around Halloween.
