  • Hello Dave,
    Can you tell me how many long term care residents have received the first and second doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine as of today?
    How many long term care residents does SMC have?
    Last weeks Burlingame’s Facility outbreak brought back memories for me personally, that is where my father spent the last days of his life.
    I think we can agree this population is the most likely to fill the Hospital ICU beds once they get COVID-19 and most likely to die.

  • Thank You, in advance for your response.
    Michael G. Stogner, San Mateo County News.com

I will publish the answer as soon as I get it.

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.

SMC County Manager Mike Callagy

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 is Now under Stay at Home Order until January 7, 2021

By Michael G. Stogner

Posted December 16 at 12:45 p.m.
Redwood City – As COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations surge and ICU capacity declines, San Mateo and 10 other Bay Area counties are under a mandatory Regional Stay At Home Order that takes effect Thursday, Dec. 17, at 11:59 p.m.

The order prohibits private gatherings of any size, except for outdoor church services and political demonstrations. Restaurants must stop offering in-person dining and can offer only take-out and delivery.

Many businesses and activities must close, including salons and barbershops. Retail can remain open at 20 percent capacity. Nonessential travel and the use of hotels or short-term rentals for leisure is banned.

The state of California announced the order today as regional ICU bed capacity fell below 15 percent, a trigger threshold. The order is meant to prevent crowding and mingling among non-household members and overwhelming the health care system.

The order is less sweeping than the lockdowns ordered in the spring. People can continue with essential activities like going to the doctor, buying groceries and picking up takeout food.

The rules will remain in effect for at least three weeks.

San Mateo County Happy Talk

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Dr. Scott Morrow

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.

SMC County Manager Mike Callagy

“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.

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

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.

Dr. Scott Morrow “The Impossible Task.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Dr. Scott Morrow

Without Enforcement it doesn’t matter what Dr. Scott Morrow says. Everybody knows that. It’s always been that way, This should be No surprise to any reasonable thinking person in San Mateo County.

Dr, Scott Morrow Public Statement made yesterday December 7, 2020. I have picked out some key statements.

“This is a horrible, nasty and lethal virus that is highly transmissible and one you do not want to get. To get out of this situation depends on all of us.”

I have no intent to fault the state on their impossible task.

The power and authority to control this pandemic lies primarily in your hands, not mine,” he said. 

Morrow called the new shelter orders “symbolic gestures” which lack enforcement.

“The structure of our economy is, for the most part, if you don’t work, you don’t eat or have a roof over your head,”

Every thing that is happening in America today was predicted and the response by the Trump Administration is Deliberate. Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and Blackstone are all Real Estate Guys, They know about Evictions and purchasing property at distressed prices at auctions. This is no mistake, This was the expected result of ignoring COVID-19.

Trump Administration Crimson Contagion Exercise of 2019

Protect Yourself, Your loved ones, and all who are forced to work, especially the Healthcare Workers.

Something for Businesses of all sizes to think about, Your employees are under extreme pressure to come to work. Some will come to work with COVID-19 some will know, most won’t that is just a fact.

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?

Dr. Scott Morrow “It’s in Your Hands.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Dr. Scott Morrow

That simple statement is refreshing. It has always been in Your Hands. Nobody likes being told what to do. I’m one of those people, if you tell me not to do something it makes me want to do it, even if I didn’t want to do it in the first place.

I first had to look up the word Pandemic, I didn’t know what it meant, I thought I did but I wanted to check, it turns out I didn’t.

Then add No Symptoms, Airborne, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine,

Then add The Trump Administration conducted the Crimson Contagion Exercise from Jan. though Sept, 2019. Google it.

You are responsible for Your Health and Safety everything you do has risks.

Best of Health, Stay Safe, Wear a Mask

CDC COVID-19 Aerosols for Hours.

By Michael G, Stogner

Here we are Nine months into a PANDEMIC. Remember You are responsible for protecting yourself and loved ones. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged Monday that the coronavirus can spread through microscopic respiratory particles known as aerosols that float in the air for minutes or even hours before being inhaled.

WEAR A MASK, STAY SAFE.

CDC warns of aerosol spread

Tiny particles that linger in the air can help transmit virus, especially in crowded indoor spaces.

WEARING masks and social distancing indoors are keys to stopping the virus from being transmitted. (Allen J. Schaben Los Angeles Times) 

By Richard Read

SEATTLE — The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged Monday that the coronavirus can spread through microscopic respiratory particles known as aerosols that float in the air for minutes or even hours before being inhaled.

On its website, the CDC said that even people who followed social distancing guidelines have been infected through this type of transmission — and added a warning against frequenting crowded, poorly ventilated indoor spaces.

The acknowledgment comes after months of campaigning by independent experts and brings the agency into line with research on the role of aerosols in “super-spreading events” such as a choir practice in Washington state that infected dozens of people and killed two.

But some researchers said the agency did not go far enough, because it maintains that the virus is still far more likely to spread through larger respiratory droplets that quickly fall on people in close vicinity.

Donald K. Milton, a University of Maryland environmental health professor and expert on aerosols, said Monday that the CDC was “slowly moving along in the right direction, but is not where I would quite like to see it.”

He said that mathematical models show that aerosols carrying the virus are more apt to spread the disease than larger droplets spewed as projectiles, even when an infected person is less than six feet away.

“At close range, you’re still going to see aerosol transmission dominant most of the time,” he said. “Spitballs are much less frequent.”

He said that means that masks — which the CDC has long recommended be worn when near others — are useful both indoors and outdoors for preventing the spread of the virus.

“Outdoor dining is associated with increased risk of getting COVID-19 because people are sitting there for a long time without a mask in one spot,” he said.

Moving around when outdoors lowers the risk of inhaling aerosols and becoming infected, he said.

When the coronavirus began spreading in the United States early this year, the CDC advised people to stay at least six feet away from other people and wash their hands frequently in case they happened to touch contaminated surfaces.

Later the agency said that contaminated surfaces played only a minor role in spreading the virus.

Researchers began following up on reports of super-spreading incidents in which aerosols appeared to be the main culprit.

The scientists urged the CDC and the World Health Organization to acknowledge airborne transmission, but health officials were skeptical.

In July, after 239 researchers from 32 countries signed an open letter urging the WHO to accept the possibility that aerosols played a major role in spreading the virus, the international agency revised its guidelines to recommend that people avoid poorly ventilated, crowded spaces.

Still, the WHO maintains that aerosol transmission has not been definitively demonstrated.

On Sept. 18, the CDC revised its guidance without notice to say that the virus spread through aerosols, but withdrew the new advisory three days later , saying it was a draft of proposed changes posted by mistake.

CDC officials did not respond to requests for an interview Monday.

A letter written by Milton and five other researchers and published Monday by Science magazine cited “overwhelming evidence” that inhalation was “a major transmission route” for the coronavirus and cited an urgent need to define terms consistently across scientific fields.

Respiratory droplets, defined as larger than 100 microns, can be sprayed like tiny cannonballs and typically fall to the ground in seconds within six feet, the letter said.

But the letter said that aerosols — defined as particles smaller than 100 microns, less than the diameter of the average human hair — “can remain suspended in air for many seconds to hours, like smoke.”

Milton said that tobacco smoke is an apt analogy to understand how tiny respiratory particles waft through the air.

“If somebody goes out for a smoke and they come in and you smell it on their breath, you’re inhaling their exhaled breath,” he said.

Milton said while the virus is most apt to spread through the air indoors, where aerosol can accumulate, it’s possible that airborne transmission occurred at the Sept. 26 White House Supreme Court nomination ceremony for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

The event included a large gathering in the Rose Garden and a smaller, indoor reception. Photographs show that in both locations few people wore masks and that social distancing guidelines were not widely followed.

The CDC has the technical resources to conduct an investigation that could determine who infected whom, Milton said.

“It would be very interesting to know which way the wind was blowing in the Rose Garden,” he said. “They were really close to each other, they were hugging each other, they were shaking hands. They were throwing all precautions to the wind, and the wind got them anyway.”

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.
