Valley Springs Man is Fifteenth Case of COVID-19 Confirmed in Calaveras County

Valley Springs, CA...On Tuesday May 26, 2020, Calaveras Public Health confirmed an additional case of COVID-19 in Calaveras County. This case is an older adult male from Valley Springs. The individual is currently hospitalized. “A person at any age can become seriously ill from COVID-19, that’s why it’s important to do everything you can to protect yourself, your family, and your community,” said Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer. “We live in a county with a much older population and older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 illness,” said Dr. Kelaita.





Calaveras Public Health staff is investigating this new case to determine any possible persons who may have had close personal contact with the positive individual. Close contacts will be assessed and monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Calaveras Public Health urges the public to:
 Stay at least 6 feet away from others
 Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
 Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
 Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissues, or your elbow (not your hands)
 Wear a cloth face covering when you are around people not in your household

“Despite recently opened areas of Calaveras County we are still in a pandemic, we must do our part to ensure the health and well-being of our most vulnerable groups,” said Dr. Kelaita.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases for Calaveras County is now fifteen. Of those confirmed cases, thirteen cases have since recovered. To date, there have been no reported deaths to COVID-19.

Not good! He must have been out at one of the big lakes this last weekend with all those crowds from who knows where! I'm glad that I am just staying under the radar!

    Stop being paranoid. He is probably is a nursing home resident, which most of these old people are, and contracted it from a younger person.

      Yeah? Just how many nursing homes still exist in this county? You also are clearly not paying attention to the changing demographics of C-19. So you don't have to look it up, that means age, race, etc. The virus is not just about older people or those with underlying symptoms anymore.

        Drugs yes and they're all over but I don't agree with White trash. What is your definition of white trash? There's a lot of decent folks-white or whoever-who live in VS!

          Unfortunately, Valley Springs gets a bad rap from all the trash that comes in from Stockton. People generalize about "that side" of the county.

          Its not a bad rap. Its true. Valley Springs is synonymous with the term "white trash", along with San Andreas.

          The definition of White Trash would be #1,Democrat, after that one, but more likely many of the following, criminal, felon,Tweaker, sexual predator, pedophile, liar, thief, welfare leech, dealer, STD carrier, on parole or has a warrant out for skipping one or more court appery, bead beat dad. But let's not forget, there's also Republicans on that list, but like our felons incarcerated, it's overwhelming Democrats in the slammer.

          "The authors, professors from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, found that in some states, felons register Democratic by more than six-to-one. In New York, for example, 61.5 percent of convicts are Democrats, just 9 percent Republican. They also cited a study that found 73 percent of convicts who turn out for presidential elections would vote Democrat" ~ Huh, I guess that's why democrats keep wanting felons to have the right to vote. Nothing like having rapist, pedophiles, armed thugs on your side, right dems? No wonder you guys picked Hillary as your man.

          It's way more than just a "lil" plant. Adults are allowed only 6 plants, not dozens or thousands of them as there have been discovered lately! You need to keep up with the news!

            Oh stfu!! Always wanting & needing something to blame humans bs for! IT'S A FU(KING PLANT!! Do you also think guns cause murder too? There's people in this world that will always ruin good things. I know for a FACT the Sheriffs out busting off a list of people who are NOT hurting ANYONE or ANYTHING!! The only ones that are really hurting are all the people that are paying for all of his expenses of busting LITTLE local farms that ARE NOT bad people, not violent criminals, not theives! He could be busting all the people around here drunk driving, thieving, and breaking way more serious laws than growing a plant!! He just likes playing "war on drugs" with all the $HIT he got Calaveras to buy him. Why does he get a pass from following the pandemic rules! forcing his staff to go on busts not knowing if where they're going is on a lockdown or if the people have been exposed or infected. IT IS ALL THIS sheriff cares about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I think our population demands we can have no more than 4 or 5 new cases a week to show we're in relative compliance and can continue on whatever economic phase we're in. Keep it up, folks, and we'll be seeing these guidelines rolled back. Especially after such a shameful lack of respect this past holiday weekend.

    And don't forget it's 4 or 5 without hospitalization or death. Number 15 is in the hospital. So, rollback could happen sooner than sooner than you think.
