There were 178 new deaths, for a total of 10,189, the California Department of Health said.
The positivity rate across the state remained at 6% over the past 14 days, while the number of patients hospitalized dropped to 5,746.
Some context: Earlier this week, White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said California had moved into the "red category," with more than 10% of tests coming back positive. She also warned about significant movement of the virus in the state's Central Valley.
