Remember No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine

San Mateo County Expands COVID-19 Testing Sites to Include Daly City & East Palo Alto

The County of San Mateo is expanding the number of COVID-19 testing sites operated by Verily to include locations in East Palo Alto and Daly City on a rotating schedule. Verily will continue to operate its San Mateo County Event Center site on Mondays and Tuesdays, while adding the old Serramonte High School campus in Daly City on Wednesdays and Thursdays and the YMCA in East Palo Alto on Fridays and Saturdays. 

The new sites and schedule will begin operating on Monday, May 18. Testing is free and available without restriction to anyone, though an appointment is required in advance. 

To make an appointment, residents can visit Project Baseline’s website at https://bit.ly/2xk73OL. |
After being tested, residents will receive results and other information by email. San Mateo County Health will reach out to residents who test positive. The expanding of testing sites is part of the County’s strategy to bring more resources to more locations. The new sites, in the northern and southern parts of the county, will make it easier for residents to access free testing. 

The County is also planning to add a location on the Coastside. “We want everyone in San Mateo County who wants a COVID-19 test to be able to get one,” said County Manager Mike Callagy. “Testing is key to understanding the spread of the disease and to further opening our economy. We want to make sure that there are no barriers, including geography, that might prevent someone from seeking a test.” 

To meet State guidelines, San Mateo County needs to administer about 1,200 tests per day, through hospitals, private testing companies, and the free program available through Verily. 

The County can help residents who lack transportation to a test site. After being screened at the Project Baseline website and receiving an appointment time, individuals with no other means to reach the testing site can call (650) 779-9375 Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM to arrange free transportation.

San Mateo County TESTING and Contact Tracing.

By Michael G, Stogner

Testing and Contact Tracing should be and should have been the Number One Priority of San Mateo County Supervisors.

When will San Mateo County have Testing for All Residents like L.A. County just announced?

Saving Lives, Shelter in Place, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine, Critical Shortages of all PPE, are all important topics, none are more important than Testing and Contact Tracing.

San Mateo County has 771,000 residents, Since January 1, 2020 when BlueDot Inc. first warned of the Virus a total of 13,004 Residents have been tested. That’s 4 months to test 13,004. SMC has No Idea how many residents are infected as of today, How could they?

State officials said they are testing more than 20,000 people a day — a third of the minimal daily tests needed to reopen. The State of California has 40,000,000 residents. You do the math

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Wednesday that all county residents can now get free coronavirus testing at city-run sites. Until now, only residents with symptoms, as well as essential workers and those in institutional settings such as nursing homes, could be tested.

Stay at Home, Save Lives until Testing and Contact Tracing comes to San Mateo County.

San Mateo County Parks Open Again, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Remember these Parks must be within 10 miles from your residence. Only 13,004 San Mateo County Residents have been tested for COVID-19 out of approximately 771,000. The State of California is testing 20, 000 residents per day out of 40,000,000. You do the Math.

Parks director Nicholas Calderon said the county — which closed 23 of its parks on March 27 in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19 — is “eager to welcome visitors back” so they can “experience the physical and mental health benefits of being outdoors and on the trails.”

Why doesn’t San Mateo County focus on TESTING & Contact Tracing first?

Trails will reopen in 13 parks Monday, according to the San Mateo County Parks Department.

Certain restrictions, however, will still be in effect. Visitors will have to carry face coverings, maintain a buffer of six feet, avoid mingling with people they don’t live with, and hike single file on narrow paths.

“During this time, it’s critical that park users follow the new rules developed to prevent overcrowding, discourage gatherings and that support social distancing,” he said in a statement Tuesday. “Let’s work together to ensure that parks are safe environments for everyone.”

The announcement applies to the following trails and parks:

Edgewood Park, Huddart Park, Junipero Serra Park, Memorial Park, Mirada Surf West, Pescadero Creek Park, Pillar Point Bluff, Quarry Park, Ralston Bike Trail, Sam McDonald Park, San Bruno Mountain Park, San Pedro Valley Park, Wunderlich Park, The Crystal Springs Regional Trail also will reopen to foot traffic, and the Bay Trail will be accessible through the Coyote Point Recreation Area, though the surrounding park will remain off-limits.

All those areas will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

Visitors, however, shouldn’t expect business as usual. Common areas such as campgrounds, playgrounds and picnic areas will remain closed — as will some parking lots and restrooms. More detailed information on what is open at each particular park is available at the Parks Department website.

Conditions are a little different in San Mateo County, where coronavirus restrictions state residents are not allowed to travel more than 10 miles from their homes for outdoor recreation.

Great COVID-19 News from City of San Carlos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: March 19, 2020 I have a question for the Leaders of San Carlos, How many people in San Mateo County have been TESTED for COVID-19 since December 30, 2019. That was the date 8 Brave Whistleblowers in China Warned the World of this virus. Today only four of them are still alive.

Update March 18, 2020 Dr. Scott Morrow, San Mateo County’s Health Officer, said the numbers could explode.

“If I was to describe the condition in San Mateo County right now it would be somewhere between dire and catastrophic,” Morrow said. “It is capable of explosive growth in the population.”

This morning I was checking around different local government websites to see what they are informing their residents. Here is what San Carlos said.

Please remember that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes the public risk in San Mateo County remains relatively low. 

That is great news for a virus that is now in all 50 States with no cure, no vaccine and a mortality rate 20 times that of the Flu.

COVID-19 City of San Carlos Updates March 18, 2020

The City of San Carlos is now claiming that the United States of America is going to use the Leaders of San Carlos as a model.

“These health professionals and law enforcement officers have been impressed with the diligence and organization of our City response, and have indicated that it will be used as a model for the rest of the country.” ……….Check the website
