Thank you for understanding that due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of individuals with COVID-19. Please remember that we can help stop the spread of illness by following the guidance of the Orange County Department of Health including hand washing, avoiding gatherings, wearing masks and staying home when ill.
