Cases Linked to the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship Added to COVID-19 Count in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...On April 9, 2020, Calaveras Public Health confirmed three additional cases of novel coronavirus or COVID-19. The case management was transferred from the state to Calaveras Public Health. They were part of a state investigation in March that stemmed from the second voyage of the Diamond Princess cruise ship that departed San Francisco on February 21 with a planned return on March 7. As of today, Calaveras Public Health has taken over the cases for follow-up. They include two older adult females and one older adult male from Copperopolis.





Two of those cases remained outside of the county for the duration of their isolation. The third case is an older adult female who was only mildly symptomatic. Despite the lack of symptoms, a COVID-19 test conducted by state public health officials, while still under quarantine outside of the county, revealed a positive test result. She has been on self-isolation since her return to our community.

“We are learning that people can be infectious without having typical symptoms of COVID-19 illness,” said Dean Kelaita, MD, Calaveras County Health Officer. “Because of this, it is important for people to stay home as much as possible, maintain physical distancing, and use a cloth face covering when in public for essential activities.”

Calaveras Public Health staff will continue the investigation to determine any possible persons who may have had close personal contact with the asymptomatic positive individual, including any friends or family members, to assess and monitor them for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness. Close personal contacts identified during this investigation will be placed under strict quarantine.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases among Calaveras County residents now includes these three repatriated cases. This brings the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the county to eight. Of those, two cases have since recovered and there are no reported deaths.

COVID-19 information and resources can be found on the Calaveras Public Health website at https://covid19.calaverasgov.us/. The COVID-19 Community Service Call Center is available Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:00pm at (209) 754-2896.

    Why in the hell would anyone, and especially old farts, travel on a cruise ship? Cruises are extremely expensive and your confined on this ship with tiny little rooms with a ventilation system that flows through the rooms with everyones horrific germs such as the Coronavirus.

        We are all much smarter than you defending cruise ships. For years there have been diseases break out on them. Toilets clog up and everyone stuck living in sewer. And then there are the recent Naval ships with Captain and crew sick. You are very stupid to even get on one, you deserve what you get from your bad decisions.

        I hope the rest of you locals are waking up to the moral fabric of these Bay Area and Valley losers that have moved here. They seek not to fit in and be part of the community, they only seek to look down their noses at you. This person here is a fine example of their thinking of how much better they are than you. This is the same person calling everyone white trash. We need to send them running from here.

          Swine/Aninmal Quarantines
          Posted on: 2020-04-09 19:45:23   By: Anonymous
           
          WTF? They are more careful with swine and poultry than people. WTF?
          They know about bio security, yet when it comes to people no? How F'n stupid is that?
          All cruise ships, especially if they had Covid-19 should of had them quarantined as they did at first, but no, it cost too much $, so they let some go thru 3 airports all the way to B.C. where they started a hot spot there. JHC, how F'n stupid.
          The CDC is shyte for brains. They knew better, but the tRump CDC and NIH changed the rules after they saw the bill from the quarantine from Travis,where they quarantined some plane loads.
          It's ONLY ABOUT THE $ with the tRump libertarian cult, all of his administration are predatory capitalists who are making $ out of this.
          These people are sociopathic predatory capitalists, they like bush cheney were willing to kill thousands to make $Billions.

          tRump awas warned in November, he wasted 3 months before he started to do anything to save lives. That's sick, evil, who he is.
          His group only worships $$$$$$$$$

                Trump is not a fellow American. He is a Trumpican. His allegiance is to Trump, and expects everyone else to show allegiance, or at least praise, to him.

      I've had a couple of incredible cruises, one a 4-day trip down the Danube when in Europe. It was a wonderful way to see some beautiful cathedrals and castles during a short period. Another was along the Alaskan coastline where we saw all manner of sea life including breaching whales and puffins, animals that few see on a car trip. Some of us enjoy experiencing our beautiful world in many ways.

Soon They Will Be Counted
Posted on: 2020-04-09 19:41:20   By: Anonymous
 
This could very well be happening in California with so little testing. I remember many people telling me last year when they were really sick their doctor tested them for regular flu and other things and it was none of those.

"One emergency room doctor told The Daily Beast that his hospital is “aggressively sending people home.”

“Being in the hospital is not going to change their course of illness,” the physician said, indicating the hard choices medical professionals face during this pandemic."

"De Blasio said that he was hopeful the virus was starting to slow after seeing indications that the city’s overwhelmed hospital system was seeing fewer admissions—until he learned that hundreds of people are dying in their homes without seeking medical care."

      But to his or her point, Trump just said at the most recent presser that he doesn't see a need for widespread testing before the quarantine is lifted. Not what the medical community is advocating.

        Lets face it tRump F'd up.
        His concern was the economy his reelection, not the welfare of the American people..
        This is typical for him. he has a long history of caring only for himself.
        To all those who refuse to remember elected officials swear to uphold the Constitution and laws and the welfare of the American people I ask what is wrong with you?
        Why do keep supporting this sociopath who does not care about you,
        Are you able to care for others?
        Why do you support this uncaring sociopath?

When folks here start to realize that those from the valley and the bay area, "flat landers", that they come here bringing their beliefs, morals and ethics and want things to be like where they came from, which changes what we do here, maybe then we can tell them to adhere to our way of life, or leave.

    Always a mistake to generalize about groups of people. If others followed your lead, we'd think most here were having babies without the benefit of husbands and lined up for benefits in govt center. Don't know what part of Calaveras you're from but from where I sit on the upper Route 4 corridor, those moving in or buying vacation homes are solid, grounded people who have been financially successful exactly because of that.

      tRump We Don't Need More Tests
      Posted on: 2020-04-10 09:55:00   By: Anonymous
       
      Yesterday tRump said we don't need more tests.
      So if we don't test, then the Feds don't have to pay for all people's medical bills due to Covid-19. Once again we see the Libertarian principal of let them die.
      The Republicans are fine with the old, those with medical conditions to die, thin the herd.
      Gov DeSantis of Fla said yesterday he thinks the schools in Fla should reopen. His reason is Covid is not as serious to the young.
      Great idea, then the kids can bring Covid home to Mom and Dad Grand Ma and Pa.
      Ya, kill them off.
      What political party is the death party shown over and over? The Republicans.

        It least the recent Republican Party. Iraq war comes to mind. Trump abandoning the Kurds to die in the Syrian desert.

        The party is also the party of federal debt and deficits.
