Calaveras Public Health Confirms 23 New Cases of COVID-19 in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...On Friday, November 20, 2020, Calaveras Public Health confirmed 23 additional cases of COVID-19 in Calaveras County. COVID-19 cases include one female between 0-17 years of age, five females and five males between 18-49 years of age, two females and four males between 50-64 years of age, and three females and three males over the age of 65. There are five cases to report in District 1, one case in District 2, seven cases in District 3, five cases in District 4, and five cases in District 5.





Everyone is at risk for COVID-19 and should take precautions to avoid getting exposed to the virus. Older adults and people with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness and death from COVID-19. This means that they may be hospitalized, require a ventilator to help them breathe, or may even be fatal. COVID-19 can be very serious and Calaveras Public Health asks that you follow the safety guidelines.

With the holidays fast approaching, Calaveras Public Health urges the public to remain cautious. The safest way to gather during the holidays is to spend time with people in the same household and gather virtually with family and friends who aren’t from your household. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe, follow the Guidelines for Gatherings and tips for a healthier holiday season. Traveling to see friends and family during the holidays could increase your risk of infection and further the spread of COVID-19 in your community. The California Department of

Public Health (CDPH) strongly recommends:
 Californians stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel
 Anyone arriving into California should voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days.
For complete details and requirements, read CDPH’s Travel Advisory.

No-cost testing for COVID-19 is available at the OptumServe COVID-19 testing site in Sonora. The site is located at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds, Blake Elliot Building (Creekside), 220 Southgate Drive, Sonora, CA 95370. Days and hours of operation are Tuesday-Saturday from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. If you would like to be tested for COVID-19 please register at www.lhi.care/covidtesting or call (888) 634-1123.

Testing for COVID-19 is advised, especially:
 People who have symptoms of COVID-19
 People who have had close contact with someone that is confirmed to have COVID-19
 People who have been asked or referred to get tested by their healthcare provider

To date, Calaveras Public Health reports a total of 422 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Of those cases, 365 cases have since recovered while 36 cases remain active. There have been a total of 21 confirmed deaths related to COVID-19 reported in Calaveras County.

Public Health staff continue 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 and monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness.

Take action to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The best ways to avoid exposure to COVID-19 are to:
 Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth in public places and anywhere you will be around people who do not live with you, including close friends and family.
 Wash your hands often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
 Stay at least 6 feet away from other people.
 Stay home if you are sick.

Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. The symptoms of COVID-19 include:
 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

A person who has tested positive with COVID-19 may not have all or any of these symptoms. A person who has tested positive but does not have any symptoms is considered asymptomatic and can still pass on the virus to others while they are infectious.

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

On November 16, 2020, the California Department of Public Health announced immediate changes to the state’s 4-tier system. The changes come as cases rapidly rise and COVID-19 becomes more widespread. Changes to the tier system can occur any day of the week and may occur more than once a week when immediate action is needed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Counties are required to put into place any sector changes the day following the tier announcement. The goal is to make sure patients can get the access to care they need and prevent hospitals from being overrun. The change, however, does not alter state guidelines governing school reopenings. As of Monday, Calaveras County rolled back from yellow (minimal risk level) to orange (moderate risk level), a more restrictive tier on the state’s 4-tier COVID-19 system. This means that some indoor operations will be allowed to be open with modifications.

Calaveras Public Health urges caution and encourages people to take the necessary steps to prevent being exposed to the virus and help the county continue to lower its risk level. Visit Blueprint for a Safer Economy to find specific business information and the county’s latest status.

Calaveras Public Health asks the public to be aware of scams. A contact tracer will never ask for your social security number, bank account number, or credit card information. Our contact tracers work for Calaveras Public Health. Contact tracers help contact people who have COVID-19 to track symptoms and make sure to keep our community safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Calaveras Public Health encourages that all people 6 months and older get their yearly flu vaccine. While getting the flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, it is shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death. Please speak with your local medical provider or pharmacist for flu vaccine.

        Do not have the annual Christmas party at the Murphys Hotel. The Murphys Hotel does not care about other businesses in Murphys with its no mask policy. There are many other restaurants who practice safe masking. If you support the Murphys Hotel, you will lose membership. Think about that.

          Thank you for the reminder... we do still have a few available dates for Holiday Parties at The Murphys Historic Hotel!

          We also still have a few tables for our 164th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner ... seating from 12p-6p next Thursday.

          Our Ball Room can safely hold up 52 at this time with the 50% occupancy advisory.

          Also reservations are highly recommended for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day of the week. Our New Seasonal offerings come out tonight!

          Our Old Time Saloon offers the same menu as the restaurant all day every day and can safely accommodate up to 50 people at a time so come on in.

          Also to those who think holding meetings for ALL of our Local Non-Profits is a benefit to The Hotel are incorrect... it actually costs us money and time but we always say Yes whenever it benefits our community especially our Non-Profits.

          Remember once COVID has passed we will still be here with or without the hateful humans who spend so much time talking ill of The Murphys Hotel.... PROMISE!

          I think you hateful humans should focus your energy elsewhere ... do something productive with your life... it will bring you some happiness which you need more than others.

          Please email me if interested in having a Holiday Gathering.

          Stay Safe ... Spread Love Not Hate... See You Soon,

    It seems exaggerated until you read the local mews from the Midwest states that are desperate....30-40 percent positives, not enough beds, nurses, ambulances , Mortuaries full. Bringing in refrigerator trucks for the bodies, having FEMA, sending in ambulances, . Hospital so short of beds that they don’t have room for other emergency or necessary treatment.. Covid cases sitting for hours in hallways with no help , or sent home to die. So many bodies in coffins that they are put in massive ditches along with others. Not that bad everywhere, but still bad and getting worse.

    We don’t see much of it here, but it could come.

          The word is "hypocrisy." People might consider your opinion if you at least came off as somewhat literate. Even those of us who live here year round saw incredible examples of gatherings and fundraisers from Valley Springs to Angels to Arnold where many were mask-less. Blame others if you must but many in the community have likely been relatively asymptomatic spreaders.

      California with the largest population of Chinese outside of China (many of those illegal in San Francisco and L.A.) was ground zero for the start of this virus in America.

      Many are moving to Northern states to escape and taking the virus with them to infect others.

      Findings signal earlier start to U.S. outbreak

      An autopsy report showing that the first death linked to COVID-19 happened Feb. 6 in Santa Clara County and not Feb. 26 in Washington supports research indicating that the outbreak began in the United States much earlier than we knew and before health officials began tracking data.

      There were 300 cases reported in the Bay Area when shelter-in-place orders were put in place on March 16. But studies and disease models suggest that more than 10,000 people in the Bay Area likely were infected by then. That research, along with the earlier death identified in Santa Clara County, indicates how far behind the U.S. was in recognizing the outbreak of the virus.

      The data used here examines the spread of the virus and potential containment going back to when officials knew the virus had arrived in the United States. While this data is limited and flawed in its ability to give a full history of the virus, it is all health officials have and underscores the importance of increased testing to provide a clearer picture of the current situation.

          Chinese-Americans and other Asian Americans are a significant part of the American population now. Just like once upon a time the Irish and others were seen as outsiders. Get over yourself and understand that America is melting pot and always changing. ps - You might also note that many in the medical community and those professionals serving in public positions dealing with COVID are Asian Americans. Those that have worked hard and gotten the necessary education and experience - as opposed to good ol' boys who sit on their arses and lament they never caught a break and foreigners are "taking their jobs."
