Todays LATIMES article titled Stay Away, San Mateo County tells outsiders. By Hayley Smith
I call this Happy Talk because Without Enforcement and a real Stay at Home Order in place this is just Silly Talk. Dr. Scott Morrow is the only person who has the authority to issue a Stay at Home Order.
San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow “the need for people to take personal responsibility over their actions and risks.” Everybody knows that is Not going to Happen.
“We are in a public health crisis with alarming rates of COVID-19 transmission,” San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy said in a statement. “While we absolutely support our local business serving our local community, we do not want nonessential travel and nonessential activities such as crossing counties for an outdoor restaurant or salon. This is the time to stay close to home.”
Who is going to listen to a County Manager? It would have been nice if his statement said We Absolutely Support our Healthcare Workers but it didn’t.
San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa implored outsiders to stop visiting.
‘You respect your stay-at-home order in your own county. Please respect our ‘stay out’ order in San Mateo County.’ ”
This is the best example of Silly Talk, There is NO Stay Out Order, this comes from one of the Five Supervisors of San Mateo County.
This is probably the most important statement in the article.
San Mateo County has reported an average of 354 new cases per day, a 120% increase from two weeks ago, according to The Times tracker.
