Mayor Ron Nirenberg reported 2,839 cases, up nine from yesterday. Of the new cases, four are from the community, one from congregate settings and one from the jail. The three additional cases are pending determination.

There has been one new death, bringing the total to 75.

There are 93 people in the hospital, 39 in intensive care and 20 on ventilators.

Nirenberg reported that the city has reached a major milestone, with 60% of cases now recovered.

The city announced that Alamo Plaza will be closed again tonight until the morning — 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Nirenberg said the action was a precaution since the area had become a setting for mischief after hours a couple of days ago.

Nirenberg also said there is concern for a surge in cases because of the recent protests. He encouraged people to continue to use safe practices if they are exercising their right to free speech in large public gatherings.
