Sixty patients who tested positive have now recovered, according to county health officials. The county had 638 confirmed cases as of Friday. In response to the rapid rise in cases, Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser on Saturday ordered that no gatherings of any number of people may take place outside of family members residing in the same home.
