The county reported no additional coronavirus-related fatalities Tuesday, leaving its COVID-19 death toll at 150.
There were 32 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in San Mateo County as of Tuesday, of which nine were being treated in intensive care units.
Elsewhere in the Bay Area and beyond, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday enacted new protections for commercial rental tenants who can prove financial hardship directly tied to COVID-19-related causes, but opted to not expand existing protections for residential renters beyond those already in place.
The supervisors unanimously approved adding commercial renter protection to a Sept. 22 urgency ordinance that already provides some protection for residential renters who have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic and can prove it.
