Eleven New Cases of COVID-19 Reported in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...On Friday, August 7, 2020 Calaveras Public Health reported 11 new cases of COVID-19 in Calaveras County. The additional cases include one male between 0 to 17 years of age, two females and three males between 18 to 49 years of age, two females and two males between 50-64 years of age, and one male over the age of 65. Seven cases were reported in District 1, Districts 2 and 3 had one case each, and District 5 had two cases. There were no cases reported in District 4.




“Each of us has a role to play. This means looking out for one another and sharing good information so that we can turn this around,” said Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer. “There are several things we can do now to control the spread of COVID-19 - wear a face covering, get tested, wash your hands often, stay home if you are sick, and practice physical distancing. Each of these steps on their own is not enough. We have to do them all to prevent the spread of the virus. Nothing is risk-free but at least we can say that we’ve used all the tools we have available to keep us safe and healthy,” said Dr. Kelaita.

To date, Calaveras Public Health has reported 147 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Of those cases, 120 cases have since recovered while 26 cases remain active. There has been one reported death related to COVID-19 in Calaveras County.

The best ways to avoid exposure to the virus are to:
 Stay home if you are sick
 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 with unwashed hands
 Wear a face covering over your nose and mouth when around others

Calaveras Public Health staff continues to investigate new cases to determine any possible persons who may have had close personal contact with the positive individuals. Close contacts may be contacted by the health department, assessed and monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness.

Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these
symptoms may have COVID-19:
 Fever or chills
 Cough
 Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
 Fatigue
 Muscle or body aches
 Headache
 New loss of taste or smell
 Sore throat
 Congestion or runny nose
 Nausea or vomiting
 Diarrhea

Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing signs, seek
emergency care immediately:
 Trouble breathing
 New confusion or weakness
 Bluish lips or face
 Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
 Inability to wake or stay awake

No-cost testing for COVID-19 is available to anyone who would like to get tested. The OptumServe COVID-19 testing site located at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds is open Tuesday-Saturday from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Testing is now available to those age 3 and older. People are highly encouraged to register online. People without Internet access should call (888) 634-1123. To receive information and resources related to COVID-19 visit the Calaveras County COVID-19 website.

Gee, who would have thought, increased testing means you find more people that test positive.

      I see that District 4 hasn't gain anymore and they seem to be doing pretty good! Probably because most folks in that district are heeding to the guidelines. I'm just curious now how that's going to work out tonight when the city of Angels has that special meeting in the park and I think the Farmer's Market is starting up again tonight?

      It's not the second home owners that bothers me. It's all the campers and day trippers.
      Highway 4 is packed.
      The only ones benefiting are the grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants.
      Closing the campgrounds and rec areas would be a big help.

          Well I'm neither a trumpster or a non-believer. I guess I'm more of an Independent or a conservative. I'm thinking our Governor is being an idiot not having a stay put in order. People should be staying in their county, if caught out of county, fine them. Keep businesses open with social distancing like our restaurants are doing now, and it's locals only.
          Sorry, tourist season is over, but we'll still need motels to stay open for fire season and that money comes from the feds to pay the workers at those places. Camp grounds can stay open, sorry county folks only. Must show drivers license to occupy a space.
          Natural Bridges will be a hot spot, there will be no social distancing there either.
          Number ONE problem? Governor newsom is letting out 17,000 prisoners, it's been reported at the very least, 300 corona19 positive prisoners have already been released. Do you think these prisoners will obey the virus guidelines? They couldn't follow our laws, I can tell you right now, they won't give a damn how many they infect, in fact some will try to infect as many people as they can.

            Lock up should not be a death sentence for inmates, officers or support staff. Imagine working in a prison and have to monitor, manage and even wrestle an inmate with unknown hygiene? It is a small price to turn them out. If they reoffend they will be back as a second or third striker.

          What I'm wondering about is just how stupid are these folks who belong to a cult can really be? I mean let's be realistic. To be so easily manipulated that the socialist/Dem/lib voter can not see that it's no longer the democratic party or values. That their last great hope was one of the most corrupt woman and family in America. Now their great hope is not only suffering from dementia, but he's a racist, that showed in his last speech. The media tried to hide it, but enough people put up a stink oh his racist comment, they had to come out and then made excuses for him. Just another reason why the far left party will say NO WAY IN HELL WILL THERE BE ANY DEBATES!!! Why? Because Dementia Joe will stutter, fumble for words, and blunder his way from the White House.
          Sorry, those are FACTS, and most on the left know that, and they know, yes you know that that is the truth. You also know that the Impeachment Gang will make sure there is no debate. Reason the Impeachment Gang hasn't said who the running mate is, is because they're still talking with Michelle, President Obama's husband.
          I'll take 4 more years of not listening to our President. He did after all get this country rocking when the last administration said things wouldn't get better that they did everything that could be done and BAM...BOOM... the country went wildly Grrreat!!! My retirement portfolio and my wife's went crazily great. So four more years? HELLA YEAH!!!
          If anyone can get us going again, Trump can.
          Now we just need all the idiots on the left and right to wear your mask, wash hands and social distance.
          If you have to rely on our governor's our mayor's or our president to tell us this common sense then YOU are beyond help of plain common sense.

            Aaawww, Richie Richie Richie, you are so right on and righteous, god bless the stock market and trump, your saviors. And screw the rest of the country, those poor stupid people who don’t have a stock portfolio, tough luck for them, eh? Praise trump, he is making the rich richer, and forget about the millions of hardworking , good, patriotic citizens that make it possible for people like trump and his Ritchie friends live like they do. The way to stop it is to vote out , at least this time around , all Republican candidates.

          Demand our businesses to stay open and for people again ordered to stay put.
          Those working out of county to be able to still do so. Write your congressman,before our Governor and also scold him for sharing letting out prisoners, this time close to TWENTY THOUSAND PRISONERS. Who went to prison because they didn't obey rules and laws, and they won't obey the guidelines for the coronavirus

          It will be more than 300,000. This not the average flu.You might get it the first time and nothing, not even know you had it.Then in previous months or years it will really take a toll on your immune system because it doesn't go away. It doesn't have a season. The vaccine is not a vaccine,it just lessens the symptoms.

                In June, long after the virus' hold on most of the U.S. had been widely reported, Tony Green, 43, held a small family gathering at his home in Dallas. He had been getting frustrated by state and federal government guidance about social distancing. “It’s family. You know we haven't seen each other in a few months, and to think that you can’t embrace each other, hug my mum? Give me a break. Of course I’m going to hug her,” Green said.
                Green, a self-identified gay conservative, quickly regretted the get-together. Just days later, 14 members of his family had fallen ill with the coronavirus. His partner’s grandmother died. Green himself was hospitalized, his central nervous system attacked by the virus, his bed in the ICU just one floor below his father-in-law, Rafael Ceja. Ceja remains on life support, almost two months after the gathering.

                  Green said that until the family gathering, he had gotten most of his information about the virus online, via a large network of friends from around the country whom he describes as “keyboard warriors,” “armchair doctors” and “conspiracy theorists.”
                  “The bubble I was in online made me think it didn’t add up,” he said. “To think that I went down that rabbit hole, it’s embarrassing.”

              Ruben Mata, a fitness trainer in Stanton, California, who has traveled the world as a motivational speaker, was adamant in the early days of the epidemic that the coronavirus was not real. Most of what he had heard about the virus he’d gleaned from his friends at the gym he attended religiously, even as the pandemic raged across the U.S. But just a couple of weeks after the Trump administration declared a national emergency on March 13, Mata, 53, was diagnosed with COVID-19. He subsequently spent five days in a medically induced coma; at one point he was given less than a 40 percent chance of survival. Now he wants others to learn from his missteps.

He just starts rambling about sleepy joe, the china virus, the wall, rigged elections, etc., etc. Anything BUT his agenda. What a freaking buffoon.

            That’s because he doesn’t have a plan.

        If it's beyond Trump, why wasn't it beyond the control of most other countries?

          Yeah, but SRS supports an idiot in chief that tells his golf fans they don't need a mask nor have to social distance.
          Smartest guy in the room.
          Real leadership with all the mixed messages.

            Real leaders (like President Trump) lead and real patriots follow the leaders. Democrats and liberals have done nothing but resist since the election they LOST!!! You will get another chance to be a patriot when President Trump gets re-elected. He is doing a great job in spite of all of the "push back" from the left.

                Trump is a lying impeached disaster. Everyday more lying and more damage to our great nation.
