A Northern California hospital was fined $43,000 after it delayed reporting a recent Covid-19 outbreak which resulted in the death of one employee.

Santa Clara County said it issued a violation notice to Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center on January 5 "as a result of Kaiser's failure to timely report 43 cases involving personnel who tested positive between December 27, 2020 and January 1, 2021. " That number has since grown, according to CNN affiliate KGO.

"Kaiser is responsible for complying with all applicable public health orders and work safety regulations, including timely reporting of cases and all required follow-ups," the county said in an email statement to CNN.

"Kaiser Permanente failed to report any of these cases in the County's Worksite Case and Contact Reporting Portal as it is required to do by the Public Health Order issued on Oct. 5," the county said in its statement.
