Governor Gavin Newsom announced this morning that all Parking facilities at state beaches on the San Mateo County Coastline will be closed for the July 4 weekend. Local leaders are expected to close all SMC beaches and Gov. Newsom has stated he will close state beaches in Counties closing local beaches.

No Parking equals No Beaches

If you don’t live on the coast Stay Away, Stay Home, Protect the residents that do.

If you see Brent Turner make sure you tell him Thank You. A perfect example of one single person can make a difference.

Same goes for Pacifica Mayor Deidre Martin a true elected Leader.

From County Manager Mike Callagy to me this AM. “So like Dr. Scott Morrow has said, assume everyone you come in contact with and everything you touch outside your home is infected and use the precautions listed to prevent yourself from becoming ill.

San Mateo County Prosecutor COVID-19 Positive.

By Michael G. Stogner

As we all know by now, Anybody can get COVID-19, There is No Cure, No Vaccine.

San Mateo County Courthouses should be CLOSED. This is not the first time we have said this. Tempetures should be taken outside before people are allowed in. Currently they are NOT, Why? 

June 19, 2020 A San Mateo County Prosecutor tested Positive for COVID-19 and she notified San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. According to an article by Aldo Toledo of Bay Area News Group Five days later June 24, 2020 Steve Wagstaffe got around to informing a few people who were exposed.

In response to my question this morning , When did you notify the Sheriff’s Office? D.A. Wagstaffe said “I believe the court, defense attorneys and SO formally learned of the positive result for my staff member two days after we learned of it.  When we learned of the positive result two days earlier, we immediately notified County Health who did the contact tracing process to notify anyone who might have been exposed.”

Were all the potential Jurors informed?

Were all the people who entered the 400 County Center Building June 15-19 notified?

June 16, 2020 the Prosecutor and 15-20 people were in a courtroom for a Preliminary Hearing. Think about who is in a Courtroom, The Judge, Clerk, Court Reporter, Sheriff Deputy Bailiff, Prosecutors, Attorneys for the Defense, Witnesses etc. The Prosecutor moves around the Courtroom and the 400 County Center Building like a butterfly. She also left the courtroom to attend another case in a different courtroom with a new set of people to expose. To get to the other courtroom she passed all the people (Hundreds) in the hall who were there for Jury Selection. She would have also gone to her office before court started where 180 co-workers are based.

Attorney Charles Smith who was one of the many people exposed in that courtroom with the prosecutor that day was informed 5 days after she informed Steve Wagstaffe.

Charles Smith “There is too much secrecy in San Mateo County.” “That’s an issue obviously, considering a lot of us are risking our health going into the Courthouse.”

Everyone who enters the 400 County Center Building is Risking their Health. What is the percentage of air that is recirculating?

Pandemic, Stay Home 4th of July.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Beaches are like a Magnet, Now is not the time to enjoy them.Protect the residents from Pacifica to Pescadero. Tell everyone to stay home.

Stay Home, Wear a Mask, Protect All County Health Officers, Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff, Firefighters, Police Officers, Store Clerks. The time to open up is when they say they feel safe and have all the PPE to do their jobs safely. SMC has never been there yet.

San Mateo County has a chance to show the WORLD they know what the word Pandemic means. Show the World that you take your Health and their Health threat seriously. You can’t blame other Countries for considering the Banning of Americans to travel, Who in their right mind would let us in.

pan·dem·ic
/panˈdemik/
adjective
  1. (of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or the world.

Political Interest have never been the same as Medical Interest. YOU are responsible for your Health and those you Love and Respect.

San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow is the one and only person I recommend you seek medical PANDEMIC advice from.

Here are some comments from Healt Officials from LATIMES article today.

“Every single one of those county health officers faces an impossible set of circumstances,” said David Relman, a Stanford doctor.

“Our professionalism is being exploited.” nurses at one hospital have gone on strike to protest what they say is understaffing and a lack of protective gear.

It has left some medical experts to warn the state is not experiencing a second wave, but a failure to maintain the flattened curve of the first one.

If the spread isn’t stopped soon, they warn, it may become impossible.

“It could get to some point where there literally is just too much disease to manage,” Relman said.

“I’m not sure why everyone is so surprised that we’re surging again. It never went away, and we opened up” while mask wearing was being “politicized,” the physician said, calling it “very frustrating.”

“It leaves us feeling in like we’re not enough,” McIntosh said. “I feel like this is all setting us up to fail.”

San Mateo County Residents show the world that you are Serious Citizens.

Stay Home, Wear Masks.

SMC FREE COVID-19 Testing sites expanded.

By Michael G. Stogner

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. 

TESTING LOCATIONS & SCHEDULE 
Mondays & Tuesdays – San Mateo San Mateo County Event Center 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM 
Wednesdays & Thursdays – Daly City Serramonte High School 699 Serramonte Boulevard, Daly City 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM 
Fridays and Saturdays – East Palo Alto Lewis and Joan Platt East Palo Alto Family YMCA 550 Bell Street, East Palo Alto 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM Sundays Testing locations closed

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.

San Mateo County District Attorney is Prosecuting Shelter in Place Violations.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has confirmed that his office has filed 3 cases of Shelter in Place Violations a Health and Safety Code section 120175 and that is a misdemeanor.

“We have had three cases submitted to our office by law enforcement in this county so far and we filed all three misdemeanor cases.  There may be additional misdemeanor citations issued by law enforcement but the citations and police reports have not been submitted to my office yet.  The reason is that the persons cited are not arrested and taken into custody; they are issued the misdemeanor citation with a court appearance date usually about 8 weeks off. The police agency may not send the police report over to us for several weeks.” 

San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow’s Order has a 5 Mile Restriction from your residence, and Face covering requirement. Fine can be $1,000 plus jail. Law Enforcement have License Plate readers so not very hard to determine if your car is more than 5 miles from your residence. Some people have informed the Sheriff’s Office that they are ok with the fine. They are missing the point, their behavior could cause others to get sick.

Remember there is no cure, no vaccine, Stay Home, Save Lives.

Every Law Enforcement Agency in San Mateo County should be enforcing this Public Health Order. This is not the same as a parking ticket. Ask yourself is it worth $1,000 per adult to go to the beach?

San Mateo County has 39 COVID-19 Deaths not 28.

By Michael G. Stogner

How is that possible? That is 11 deaths since this mornings update.

Who is providing the Death numbers shouldn’t it be the Coroners Office?

Louise Rogers Chief of Health just reported to the Board of Supervisors that San Mateo County has 39 Deaths related to COVID-19. The Health Department Data base shows 28 as of 8:00 AM this morning.

She said of the Deaths 24 White, 10 Asian, 3 Hispanic, 1 Black I didn’t catch the last one.

I’ll update when the County puts the video on the website.

Pacifica Police Enforcing Dr. Scott Morrow’s Order.

By Michael G. Stogner

It took 17 days to start enforcing Dr. Scott Morrow’s Order, Why? How many people came to Pacifica in that time?

All San Mateo County Law Enforcement should be doing the same. San Mateo County Sheriff Office is also starting to enforce it. All City Council meetings should start with Dr. Scott Morrows Order. Pursuant to Government Code sections 26602 and 41601 and Health and Safety Code section 101029, the Health Officer requests that the Sheriff and all Police in the County ensure compliance with and enforce this Order.The violation of any provision of this Order constitutes an imminent threat and menace to public health, constitutes a public nuisance and is punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.

To remain within 5 miles of their residence, Face Coverings etc. $1,000 fine. Pretty simple get the word out save lives.

PRESS RELEASE April 20, 2020

POLICE DEPARTMENT ENFORCING SHELTER IN PLACE ORDER ON PACIFICA BEACHES AND PARKING

On March 31, 2020, the San Mateo County Health Officer issued an Order which requires those persons who recreate outdoors to remain within 5 miles of their residence. Pacifica has experienced an influx of visitors from outside of this 5 mile radius as people seek to enjoy the outdoors during this unprecedented shelter in place period.

On Friday through Sunday (April 17-19), officers were assigned to patrol Linda Mar Beach to educate visitors regarding the shelter in place order and social distancing practices. Officers contacted 408 visitors over this 3 day period, ordering 275 off the beach after learning they resided more than 5 miles away.

Also noted was the high percentage of vehicles parked in beach/trail areas from out of the area. Over the same 3 day period, roughly 45% of the vehicles counted were from outside of 5 miles from where they are registered. “The City of Pacifica is committed to following the Health Officer’s orders in order to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus, while also continuing to allow the public within a 5 mile radius to safely access our beautiful beaches,” said Mayor Deirdre Martin. “However, the data we’ve collected and the enforcement we’ve had to take suggests many are not taking these orders seriously. This is alarming because unsafe conditions are occurring and, as a result, the City, in coordination with the State, may be left with no choice but to close the beaches entirely to everyone unless conditions improve.”

As this health crisis continues and the shelter in place order remains in effect, the Pacifica Police Department will be implementing parking restrictions in affected areas, as well as enforcement of the shelter in place order on Linda Mar Beach as well as Mori Point. While Pacifica is normally a visitor friendly area with its beautiful beaches and trails, the City takes this health crisis and shelter in place order seriously. Those found in violation are subject to parking citations and/or criminal arrest.

We look forward to welcoming our visitors back once this crisis has ended.
