San Diego County public health officials reported 1,437 new COVID-19 infections Monday and no new deaths.

Monday marked the fewest coronavirus-related hospitalizations in a month — 1,485 — though the number of patients in ICU units remains high at 424, just 14 below the record 438 reported Wednesday.

There were 47 staffed ICU beds available in the county as of Monday.

It was the 56th consecutive day with more than 1,000 new cases, and brings the county’s cumulative case total to 228,632, while the death toll remained unchanged at 2,375.

Ten new community outbreaks were reported Monday, with 55 in the past week, tied to 234 cases.

The county has now administered 235,078 total doses of COVID-19 vaccines, with 1.3% of the county’s population above the age of 16 now inoculated.

The UC San Diego Health Vaccination Super Station at Petco Park was closed Monday due to inclement weather and will remain closed Tuesday morning, when officials will determine if the closure needs to be extended.

People who were to receive a vaccination at the site on Monday had their appointments rescheduled for Thursday and should check the county’s MyChart to confirm.
