Covid Continues Surge in Amador County with 41 New Cases

Amador County, CA – Amador County Public Health confirms forty-one new cases of COVID-19 in Amador since last Tuesday’s update. The new cases include 23 males and 18 females, 13 children under the age of 18, 20 aged 18-49, 4 aged 50-64, 4 over 65 years of age; 4 residing in Ione, 12 living in Jackson, 5 living in Pine Grove, 8 in Pioneer, 3 in Plymouth/surrounding areas, 8 residing in Sutter Creek/Amador City, and 1 in Volcano. These cases are linked to transmission among extended family, household transmission, and gatherings.

While, as of today, Amador remains in the red tier on California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, trends are increasing statewide. Businesses may reference the state’s Activity and Business Tiers to view modifications within the red tier designation.

COVID-19 testing is available in Amador County and within driving distance in neighboring counties. To access no-cost COVID-19 testing in Jackson, register at for an appointment. Assistance with scheduling an appointment is available by calling the Amador Testing Helpline at (209) 223-6676.

With the upcoming holidays, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued Thanksgiving guidance along with California Department of Public Health’s Tips for a Healthier Holiday Season. Individual actions affect our whole community. It is important to consistently practice prevention measures that help limit the spread of COVID-19. Avoid gatherings, especially where people are not keeping distance or wearing face coverings. Avoid mixing with others outside your household. Individuals may be contagious
before symptoms of COVID-19 are present. Outdoors is safer than indoors. Persons over age 65 and those with chronic health conditions that put them at higher risk for severe COVID-19 are encouraged to stay home as much as possible. Avoid unnecessary travel. Stay home if you are sick even with mild symptoms. If you have been directed to isolate or quarantine, please follow all instructions.

Total cases in Amador to date = 394 cases.
Total hospitalized = 4 cases (2 locally and 2 out-of-county)
Total confirmed COVID-19 deaths = 15 deaths.
Total active cases = 52 cases.
Total cases released from isolation to date = 327 cases. Cases are released from isolation when
they are no longer infectious.

Looks like schools spreading could be the problem. The most cases are children under 18, and people at ages to be their parents. I had to go to Jackson today. I drove around and saw all hair, nail and massage parlors open. Before they had to be closed in red tier, now they are just the same as Calaveras in the orange. Looks like it's all a joke.

        Looking at the case rates in Tuolumne vs Amador I agree with you. Open schools spread the virus. This seems like common sense to people who have ever raised children.

    Trump Train?....I heard Willie Brown and some of his right hand men pulled a train on Kamala on a regular basis. Makes me wonder of Gavin and some of his buddies did too?
    "How 29-year-old Kamala Harris began an affair with powerful San Francisco politician Willie Brown, then 60 and married, who appointed her to two lucrative positions only to dump her after he was voted first black mayor of the city"
    "Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris dated San Francisco's first black mayor Wilile Brown in the 1990s, while he was still married but separated from his wife
    Brown is 31 years Harris' senior and she was his 'constant companion' on the campaign trail. They met while he was 60 and Harris was 29
    But when Brown was inaugurated in 1996, his estranged wife Blanche was by his side after 'splitting' two years prior
    Harris has struggled to shirk her association with Brown, whom she has described as 'an albatross hanging around my neck'
    He was State Assembly Speaker for 15 years, appointing her to unemployment insurance appeals board and California medical assistance commission
    Brown is notorious for his love of sports cars, flash designer suits and for being named one of the world's 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine
    He had also been seen with a 'succession' of beautiful women despite having been married for 25 years, being dubbed 'the real Slick Willy' by Bill Clinton"
    I hear a train a's cuming round the bend...and Kamala Harris got spooey running down her chin...WOOO- WHOOOOOOOO
