On March 25, 2020, a City Council member from the City of Irvine released unofficial counts of positive COVID-19 cases for a number of cities in Orange County, including the City of Huntington Beach.

During one of their daily intergovernmental staff meetings, Orange County officials shared some preliminary information on COVID-19 cases that were being tracked that were not yet confirmed and were not meant for public distribution.

“Our residents need to know that your City leaders are participating in every meeting at every level of government that pertains to how COVID-19 is impacting our community and region,” said Mayor Lyn Semeta. “We take our responsibility very seriously to vet and confirm any information before it is released to the public. To that end, the City is working with Orange County officials to obtain accurate, confirmed counts, and we will be sharing those numbers as soon as we receive them.”

The City of Huntington Beach is committed to sharing accurate information upon which the community can rely. Going forward, Orange County is expected to update the number of positive COVID-19 cases by community on at least a weekly basis, which the City will distribute on its HBReady.com website.
