SAN DIEGO — The number of coronavirus cases in San Diego County has reached 60, officials announced Tuesday.

Of those cases, 51 are county residents, four live outside of the county and five are in federal quarantine at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. Twenty-one are women and 39 are men. Forty-seven are between the ages of 18 and 64 and 13 are over the age of 65.

There are two clusters within those cases of people known to each other, said Eric McDonald, Deputy Public Health Officer at County of San Diego.

“One is a cluster of four individuals who apparently contracted the virus in the community and the other cluster that’s being investigated is a group of seven individuals who were on a ski trip to a county in Colorado,” McDonald said Tuesday during a news conference. “Colorado issued an advisory that there were cases that were confirmed in several counties where there are ski resorts.”

Ten of the 60 individuals have been hospitalized. There have been no deaths in the county.
