Orange County ‘dodged a Labor Day-fueled surge’

Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, agreed.

“I think we’re out of the woods on Labor Day,” Noymer told City News Service on Monday, adding that the latest statistics “look fantastic.” Hospitalizations are “just above the levels seen in late July so we’re really turning back the clock, and I mean that in a good way,” Noymer said.
