Dr. Scott Morrow on Vaccines.

By Michael G. Stogner

Dr. Scott Morrow

Dr. Scott Morrow issued a statement Yesterday Jan 19, 2021. Here are the takeaways. Plan for 1 more year.

Late Summer is August “Many will get first dose by late summer.”

“If you are confused, don’t be alarmed. We are all confused,” Morrow said residents should instead focus on practicing gratitude and patience.

“The solution is to ramp up production,” said Morrow, adding, “I don’t know how feasible this is.”

It’s unclear how many doses have actually been shipped into the county or how many have been administered. Other than the fraction of doses shipped to County Health, local officials are unable to track shipments to multi-county health care providers or the commercial pharmacies treating long-term care facility residents and staff.

Getting vaccinated will not immediately exempt inoculated residents from COVID-19 health restrictions, noted Morrow who suggested mask wearing, social distancing and not gathering will be necessary through most of the new year.

Let’s give the new Federal Administration who is actually interested in giving the vaccines to the American Public a couple of weeks to see what they say.

Stay Safe, Wear a Mask, be Nice

San Mateo County 2 ICU Beds and Staff.

By Michael G. Stogner

With all the media overload different topics for the residents to be inform about. I have always thought the ICU Beds and Trained Staff is one of the Most Important subjects to be concerned about. It is the best measurement of Safety and Capacity. It is not to be confused with the 88 surge beds which has always remained constant.

San Mateo County has 2 ICU Beds and Staff available that’s all for all eight Hospitals. That is a Big Deal and one of the Only topics the leadership of SMC should have been concerned about for the last 11 months.

It’s fair to say that COVID-19 is more dangerous today than it has ever been. All of the normal reasons to go to the Hospital remain the same, Heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, Domestic Violence, etc and only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff are available.

Last Tuesday I was one of the few Public Speakers on the Zoom meeting of the Board of Supervisors. I reminded them that the County had only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff available. That is Critical.

My recommendation for the County Leaders is to stop the Happy Talk, and make sure all the Hospitals have the proper amount of Trained Staff.

Everybody knew this was going to happen, No surprise.

S.J. Kaiser Permanente 43 ER Staff COVID-19 Positive.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: Jan.5, 2021 Now 1 Dead 60 Positive, the deceased worked on Christmas Day.

The health and safety of our patients, employees, and physicians is our highest priority. To date, we have determined 60 staff members out of those present in the Kaiser Permanente San Jose Emergency Department on Dec. 25 have tested positive for COVID-19. Working with our infectious disease specialists, we are continuing to investigate the outbreak to determine the potential causes and using contact tracing to personally notify and test anyone exposed, based on CDC and public health guidelines. Given the prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, it is often difficult to pinpoint the specific exposure leading to COVID-19 infection.

KARL SONKIN
KAISER PERMANENTE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

43 staff members at the Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center Emergency Department tested positive for COVID-19 between Dec. 27, 2020 and Jan. 1, 2021 Thats six days.

That’s Santa Clara County right next door to San Mateo County, That’s also 43 Staff Members that must be replaced during a staffing shortage.

Now in San Mateo County, the question of how many residents have been injected in arm/shot up with the Vaccine have gone unanswered by San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy.

From: Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Mike Callagy <mcallagy@smcgov.org>

Sent: Thursday, December 31, 2020, 8:41:00 AM PST Subject: Total of COVID-19 Vaccines in Arms


Hello Mike,
Can you please tell me how many COVID-19 vaccines have been injected into arms in San Mateo County as of December 30, 2020.


Thank You
Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com

It would be great if County Manager Mike Callagy could answer that question as of December 30, 2020 as I asked and also as of Jan. 3, 2021 now.

As we have all learned from Operation Warp Speed aka Happy Talk It’s one thing to ship doses it’s entirely different to inject arms aka shoot up.

San Mateo County, What is the answer? and why would County Manager not answer that simple question or have somebody answer it.

San Mateo County goes Purple again.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County New Cases Saturday 441 all time record.

As of Sunday November 29, 2020 San Mateo County is Purple again.

The state today announced that, effective tomorrow (Sunday, Nov. 29), San Mateo County will move to purple Tier 1, the most restrictive on the state’s four-tier, color-coded COVID-19 reopening plan. A new stay-at-home order — prohibiting residents from leaving their homes to gather with other households from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. — also takes effect at 10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30.Under purple Tier 1 restrictions, businesses and activities that may have been operating indoors — including places of worship, movie theaters, gyms and museums — must move outdoors or close. Shopping malls and all retail must operate at no more than 25 percent capacity. Indoor gatherings among members of different households are banned and outdoor gatherings can include people from only three households outside of the 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. restrictions. During those hours, no gatherings are allowed among households, with certain exemptions.State officials said restrictions are necessary to control a recent surge in coronavirus cases across the Bay Area and state. San Mateo County Health reported an approximately 85 percent spike in new COVID-19 cases from October to November: https://www.smchealth.org/coronavirus. The rollback to purple is due to the county’s new adjusted case rate of 7.6 per 100,000 population.“We have not seen numbers like this in quite a while and we really need to reverse this incredibly troubling trend,” County Manager Mike Callagy said. “What’s important to remember is that we can reverse the trend as long as we follow common-sense health and safety practices.”The virus is considered “widespread” in purple Tier 1 in state’s four-tier “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” plan. Callagy added, “We need everyone to do their part to keep our community safe. That’s why we are urging everyone to stay home for the holidays. I know that means a lot of sacrifice, but the best way to show your family that you love them is to stay home and stay safe.”Limited Stay At Home OrderThe new stay at home order, announced by the state Nov. 19, is more limited than the spring “Shelter in Place” order and applies only to counties in the purple Tier 1. It went into effect November 21 and will remain in place until December 21.Residents can still go outside alone or with members of their own household “as long as they do not engage in any interaction” with members of other households or to work at essential jobs, such as in grocery stores. The order requires all nonessential businesses and restaurants – even if operating outdoors – to cease operations by 10 p.m. Holiday TravelCounty Health officials urge residents to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for testing and California Department of Public Health tips for healthier holiday season:· Stay home or in your region and avoid non-essential travel· Do not gather indoors with other households· Contact your healthcare provider if you have a concern about your exposure. “We continue to advise against traveling and want to reinforce that testing provides only a point-in-time result,” said County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow. “A test during the incubation period is too early to detect the virus during the infectious period. So if you test negative before or during a trip, you may still present a risk of exposing others to COVID-19. A negative test does not clear you for visiting relatives.”Morrow advised everyone to wear a face covering, maintain social distance and avoid gatherings even if your test result is negative.Activity and Business Restrictions Under Purple Tier 1Restaurants (Dine In)· Outdoors only with modifications (takeout and delivery open with modifications)Gatherings· Outdoors only with modifications· No more than three households· Prohibited, with certain exemptions, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.Places of Worship· Outdoor only with modificationsMovie Theaters, Gyms and Fitness Centers, Museums, Zoos and Aquariums· Outdoor only with modificationsHair Salons, Barbershops, Personal Care Services· Open indoors with modificationsAll Retail (except stand-alone grocers), Shopping Centers, Malls, Swap Meets· Open indoors with modifications· Maximum 25% capacity· Closed common areas· Closed food courtsSchools· The County’s move to the Purple Tier will have no impact on schools that have already resumed modified in-person instruction. · However, additional restrictions and/or a waiver process will apply to those that have not yet transitioned to in-person instruction.Offices for Non-Essential Workers· Remote onlyOutdoor Playgrounds/Recreational Facilities· Open with modificationsAll businesses are required to follow industry-specific guidance: https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance….(What’s open and what’s closed in each tier?

by Michael G. Stogner

Brent Turner

“It’s the Software.”

Recently he asked San Mateo County Supervisor Warren Slocum to resign from Verified Voting an advisory board just like two others who resigned for ethical reasons. Supervisor Slocum ignored the request.

Half Moon Bay Beaches OPEN Labor Day Weekend.

By Michael G. Stogner

Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 last night to keep the Beaches in Half Moon Bay Open while Monterey County, Santa Cruz County and the City of Pacifica have decided to Close Beaches and Parking Lots.

There is a Worldwide PANDEMIC, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine but that has never been a concern for San Mateo County Leadership. They have consistently been dedicated to Staying off of the States Watchlist, or Getting Off of the States Watchlist. That might be why they have made so many changes to the Data Base, None of it matches.

Back to the Beaches of Half Moon Bay you can’t blame the elected officials in this case, so many moving parts and they don’t get paid for this. The City Manager, Assistant Manager, Sheriff, Chief of Police they do, the Chief who by the way said he would make some calls to see if he could get some extra staff to enforce the closure of Beaches if they voted to close. Think about that, He didn’t say Of Course I will get the extra staff I need to enforce your decision. This is San Mateo County, now known as Silicon Valley and the Police Chief says its going to be tough to enforce it. All five council members were OK with his response.

Even from a simple Math point of view, This is a very bad idea. Half Moon Bay and the SMC Coast experience Gridlock on normal weekends, watch what happens now. This is an invitation to the world the Party is in Half Moon Bay this Labor Day Weekend.

Pacifica Closes Beaches and Parking lots for Labor Day Weekend.

By Michael G. Stogner

September 1, 2020

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Pacifica, CA) – All Pacifica beaches and beach parking lots will be closed from sunrise Saturday, September 5 to sunrise Tuesday, September 8 for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Concern about the continuing, and increasing, transmission of COVID-19 locally and across the state means that over-crowded gatherings, such as usually happens at the beaches on holiday weekends, presents increased health concerns. Closing beach parking without closing beaches creates impacts on Pacifica neighborhoods near the beaches as crowds attempt to park in residential neighborhoods and beaches still become overcrowded. Therefore, for health and safety during this increasing Coronavirus pandemic, beach closures are warranted.

Specifically, the following beaches and beach parking lots will be closed in Pacifica:

  • Pacifica State Beach (Linda Mar Beach) and north and south parking lots,
  • Crespi parking lot in front of the Pacifica Community Center,
  • Rockaway Beach and north and south parking lots,
  • Sharp Park Beach
  • Esplanade Beach and Fisherman’s Lot in the 800 block of Palmetto AvenueThe Coastal Trail, Mori Point hiking trails, Beach Boulevard Promenade, and Pacifica Pier will remain open for visitors to enjoy while practicing health protective measures such as wearing a mask and physically distancing six feet apart.“Labor Day weekend, as an end of summer holiday, is expected to draw large crowds”, says Pacifica Mayor Deirdre Martin. “With the continuing health concerns related to spread of COVID-19, the City is taking the necessary measures to promote the health and safety of our community. Please celebrate the holiday safely at home.”The ORDER OF THE DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY SERVICES RELATING TO TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF BEACHES AND BEACH PARKING FACILITIES TO THE PUBLIC FROM SUNRISE ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2020 TO SUNRISE ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2020 WITHIN PACIFICA DUE TO COVID-19 (ORDER NO. 2020-05) can be viewed on the City’s website at www.cityofpacifica.org/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=17398.

San Mateo County Beaches and Parks Closed again.

Public Safety Officials Urge People to Stay Away from Beaches; City of Half Moon Bay Closes Beaches for the Weekend

“The number one contribution to the fire-fighting effort everyone can make is to avoid the coast” to allow first responders to do their jobs and keep roads clear for evacuees, said CalFire Deputy Chief Jonathan Cox.

Pacifica Mayor Deirdre Martin said, “First responders from across Northern California need to focus on stamping out the vast number of wildfires and protecting lives and property. They don’t need or want to be fighting traffic so someone can enjoy a day at the beach.”  Read the news release.

The City of Half Moon Bay has closed all its beaches through the weekend to discourage visitors and help keep roads clear for first responders and evacuees.

The Horse Park at Woodside, August 7-9

By Michael G. Stogner

EF3ED31950B843ADAA984DBC4001E5D0-250x250

The Horse Park at Woodside

I have asked San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemary Blankswade and San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy to comment on this subject. So far none of them have made a comment to me yet. If they do I will publish it.

As most of San Mateo County is starting to realize the County has remained off of the State Watchlist for several weeks when there was no benefit in doing so even if the Data on the County Website were true. SMC has always had SFO in County and San Jose International just to the south in Santa Clara County, Both had several non-stop flights to and from Wuhan per day. To this day we do not know how COVID-19 is transmitted, There is NO CURE, NO TREATMENT, NO VACCINE. San Mateo County Website claims it has a Testing goal of 1,800 per day, in the entire month of July they reached that goal only 2 days for the entire month.

They are expecting between 300-350 people to attend this three day event.

Now is not the time to hold this event. There is a Pandemic.

Upcoming August Events at The Horse Park

     and COVID-19 Preventative Measures

The Horse Park will be hosting two major horse shows in August, which are put on by two of the West Coast’s top show producers, The Summer Event at Woodside Horse Trials (August 7-9) and Silicon Valley Equestrian Hunter/Jumper Festival (August 19-23 & 26-30). These shows are authorized under the State guidance.  Every aspect of the shows will meet the strict requirements for competition outlined in the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s “Equestrian Event Resources.” These outdoor, controlled-access shows will adhere to the robust Covid-19 biosecurity protocols and compliance measures established by the national federations for the sport, specifically the United States Equestrian Federation.

The Horse Park prioritizes the safety of our members, exhibitors and surrounding community. The following are some of the things that will be strictly enforced in regard to Covid-19 preventative measures:

 

  • Every person entering the property will be screened and have their temperature taken every day. No one with Covid-19 symptoms or who has known direct exposure to Covid-19 will be allowed on property.
  • Following successful daily screening, participants will receive a daily wrist band.
  • Social distancing will be required and strictly enforced.
  • Masks are mandatory at all times except when riding a horse or consuming food or beverage.
  • No spectators are allowed.
  • No social events or gatherings are allowed.
  • Additional handwashing stations and sanitizer dispensers will be widely spread around the facility for everyone’s use.
  • Signage is posted throughout the Horse Park regarding basic rules and Covid-19 safety measures. Additional signs will be installed for even greater visibility.
  • All show attendees will sign a statement in advance agreeing to Covid-19 rules for competition and acknowledging that they will be asked to leave if they do not comply. The signed statement will also include contact information and consent for future contact tracing should that be required.
  • There will be biosecurity compliance officers walking around the property for the duration of the competition to ensure strict adherence to the rules.
  • The Horse Park will ensure ongoing cleaning of all common surfaces and areas.

 

We are pleased to support our valued equestrian constituents and host these exciting events. We will insist on participants’ compliance with the rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable competition for everyone. We continue to be impressed by the wonderful Horse Park community, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Steve Roon

Executive Director
