San Diego County reported a total of 5,976 new coronavirus cases Thursday, setting a new single-day record, according to county records.

The previous single-day record was set on Jan. 7, when the county health department reported 4,550 new cases.

Besting the previous record by nearly 1,500 cases on the eve of New Year’s Eve clearly unsettled those in charge of protecting the public health.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, San Diego’s deputy public health officer, said in a statement released Thursday afternoon to tamp down plans for ringing in the new year.

“San Diegans must continue to make decisions to protect themselves and others,” Cameron said. “If you have New Year’s celebrations, limit them to people who live with you, and make sure everyone present uses the strategies we know work.”

With local bars, clubs and eateries open without capacity limits on Dec. 31`, it was obvious that the advice will not be heeded. As a steady stream of Twitter announcements testified, many businesses are promoting New Years bashes, including the Pacific Beach Bar Crawl that will take revelers to six different locations.
