Pasadena continues seeing progress against the COVID-19 pandemic Tuesday as no new deaths were reported for the fifth day in a row.

Four new infections raised the city’s total number of infections to 11,036, officials said. The local death toll stood at 327.

In another positive milestone, no new infections of skilled nursing facility residents had been reported at such facilities in two weeks, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.

Over the prior week, Pasadena saw an average of 5.4 new COVID-19 infections each day, according to city records.

The number of COVID-19 patients continued to decline at Huntington Hospital, which listed 28 patients being treated on Tuesday, including five who were in intensive care units.

City data reflected that 39,716 Pasadens, representing 33.7% of the city population over the minimum approved vaccination age of 16, had received at least one dose of two-dose vaccine regimens.

Another 22,598 city residents, or 19.2% of the local population over 16 years old, had been fully vaccinated against the virus.

At the county level, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 318 new infections and 52 deaths on Tuesday.

Since the start of the pandemic, the county had recorded 1,210,905 cases of COVID-19 and 22,519 fatalities, in all.

The county’s daily positivity rate was recorded at 1.8%.

Officials reported 865 COVID-19 patients being treated at L.A. County hospitals, with 28% of them being housed in ICUs.

The progress was encouraging, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said.

“Los Angeles County continues to make significant progress slowing transmission. Should our case numbers continue to decline, our recovery journey could land us in the less restrictive orange tier in April,” she said.

“This is only possible if we all do our part to keep each other safe,” Ferrer added. “I believe that as more people are vaccinated and as we continue to follow public health safety measures, we can continue re-openings without threatening each other’s health.”

The California Department of Public Health reported 1,260 infections and 42 deaths on Monday, which brought the state’s totals to 3,530,055 cases of COVID-19 and 55,372 associated fatalities.

The statewide weekly average positivity rate continued to decline, reaching 1.9%, according to CDPH data.

As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s deaths.
