San Andreas Woman is Sixteenth Case of COVID-19 Confirmed in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...On Wednesday June 3, 2020, Calaveras Public Health confirmed an additional case of COVID-19 in Calaveras County. This case is an adult female from San Andreas.  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. Community transmission of disease remains a serious concern.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best protection against COVID-19 continues to be to:
 Stay at least 6 feet away from people outside of your household
 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 face covering over your nose and mouth to protect others

“We urge everyone to care for each other by taking actions that will be important to prevent more cases,” said Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer. “Older adults and people who have underlying health conditions remain at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, so it will continue to be important for vulnerable residents to stay at home as much as possible.”

Vulnerable groups should have groceries and medicine delivered, and call their medical provider immediately if they have even mild symptoms. The incubation period for COVID-19 can be as long as14 days. If you think you were exposed to the virus or develop symptoms, call your health care provider and consider getting tested. You may be asked to stay home and monitor yourself for symptoms of illness, like fever of respiratory problems.

A COVID-19 testing site operated by OptumServe is open at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds Monday-Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Walk-ins are welcome. Appointments can also be made by going to For people without internet access, call (888) 634-1123. People can be tested with or without symptoms of COVID-19. If individuals have health insurance, their insurance provider will be billed. A referral by a doctor is not needed.

Copays will not be collected at the site. Individuals who do not have insurance can be tested at no-cost.
The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases for Calaveras County is now sixteen. Of those confirmed cases, thirteen cases have since recovered. To date, there have been no reported deaths to COVID-19.

She must have traveled to Valley Springs and got too close to a drug dealer.

    Plenty of The 73 Percentile dealing right there in San Andreas.
    Let's hope that's not the case and she'll be fine.
    Should be interesting in another 4 weeks or so. Seems to be a lot of people on the roads, up and out around our lakes and rivers. I saw a lot of cars with Bay Area cities printed on their license plate holder, along with Sac, Stockton, but they also may of bought their vehicles there.
    Last week the Sourgrass area had at least 18 cars there, and 3 cars parked in front of the locked gates at the camp ground, walked in campers.

      Sorry but San Andreas doesn't have drug dealers. Valley Springs is the drug capital of Calaveras County. There are many people in San Andreas who mingle with Valley Spring residents.

          What you call a Native American is an Asian, open your eyes and take a look at them.

          Notice anything wrong with your sentence? I can't stop laughing. You proved yourself the imbecile. You need to go back to school.

How did she get it?

Sounds like a local San Andreas woman. How did she get it? How can we stop the spread. 3 cases within 2 weeks is not good for us. "Community transmission" is what we want to avoid.

Be safe. Wear a mask.

    If I'm asymptomatic and can spread this disease, please remember I have the right to not wear a mask, and the right to spread this disease to you.
