Governor Newsom is just a Human Being like the rest of us.

By Michael G. Stogner

You and you alone are responsible for Your Health and Safety. I have known since February of 2020 about the Crimson Contagion Exercise by the Trump Administration in 2019. I have known since than that the United States Response or Lack of Response is a Deliberate Act. The outcome we are seeing today in America is the predicted and expected result by the Trump Administration it is that simple.

I am a 70 year old man with 3 out of 4 conditions that place me at high risk if I catch COVID-19, that is why for the last 9 months I personally choose to restrict my behavior and do my best to protect all of the Medical Professionals and Staff who are forced to take care of those sick with COVID-19. They should not have to be working overtime and doing work loads they never sign on to do. Example comfort the dying every single day.

I will not be having Thanksgiving with my son and his family. They know why. This is a Pandemic completely out of control just as Predicted.

Governor Newsom just made a Human Error, Think about YOUR actions.

Today’s LATIMES

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday that he should have stayed home and not attended a dinner with other households at an upscale Napa Valley restaurant as COVID-19 cases soar across the state.
“While our family followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions, we should have modeled better behavior and not joined the dinner,” Newsom said in a statement.
Newsom and his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom attended a birthday party for his political advisor Jason Kinney at the French Laundry in Yountville on Nov. 6, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The paper wrote that a total of at least a dozen people from more than three different households attended the gathering.
The governor’s office confirmed Newsom’s participation in the event and said the dinner was held outdoors at the restaurant.
“This was a small, intimate, 12-person dinner held outdoors with family and a few close friends to celebrate a 50th birthday,” said Molly Weedn, a spokeswoman for Kinney. “The restaurant was open for normal dining, consistent with state and county health guidance. All of the restaurant safety protocols were adhered to — and the guests followed those protocols.”
California’s COVID-19 guidelines limit the number of households at a private gathering, but do not explicitly impose those same rules on restaurant patrons.
State guidelines updated in November allow private gatherings of no more than three households in a park or outdoor space. Rules for dining say restaurants should “limit the number of patrons at a single table to a household unit or patrons who have asked to be seated together,” without stating any limits on the number of households that can sit at a table.
The revelation of Newsom’s restaurant outing came at a particularly awkward moment on the same day his administration issued new guidance calling for Californians to limit their exposure to those outside of their immediate family as the state grapples with another surge of the coronavirus. To date, California has reported more than 1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 18,000 deaths — counts that officials fear could grow rapidly if families gather for the Thanksgiving holiday in two weeks.
Earlier this week, several counties saw their COVID-19 restrictions in their communities increase as they were moved to the state’s “purple” tier, indicating greatest risk of coronavirus spread. One of those counties was Sacramento, where the governor and his family live.
Dr. Mark Ghaly, the governor’s health and human services secretary, declined to specifically address Newsom’s decision to attend the birthday dinner with others on Friday.
“We have the guidance and the tips for a reason,” Ghaly said of the call for fewer and more cautious group gatherings.
“We believe they are the strategies to keep ourselves and our communities safe and we hope, and expect, people to take them seriously.”
The governor’s office did not immediately answer a question regarding Newsom’s plans for Thanksgiving.

Supervisor David Canepa is the problem.

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

We have plenty of hospital beds and are ready for a surge. I don’t want to take a step back, but we must all be prepared. This will require an extraordinary effort at every level of government to ensure these businesses do not fail,” said Supervisor David Canepa. You can see he has shifted to protect businesses instead of Residents.

Supervisor Canepa knows his statement is Misleading and False ICU Beds are the issue not Surge Beds.

San Mateo County has 67 ICU Beds & Staff and was supposed to have 13 ICU Beds and Staff available to meet the 20% Availability Rate 67 ICU Beds & Staff x 20% = 13.4. You will see on the chart below July 23-24 the gray bar is blank the available beds & staff were 5 and 3. Does that sound like “We have plenty of hospital beds.”

SMC has 3 ICU Beds and Staff Available

By Michael G. Stogner

That number is supposed to be 13 not 3.

San Mateo County has consitantly had 67 ICU Beds and Staff until July 21, 2020. On that day the County’s Data Base showed 82 ICU Beds and Staff. I asked County Manager Mike Callagy which Hospital/s had the Beds and Staff. His response is below. Today the County says they have 64 Total ICU Beds and Staff. Why?

20% Availability of 67 ICU Beds and Staff equals 13, with the exception being 7/21/2020 16

According to the data published by San Mateo County for the last 10 days the County has not maintained the 20% availability of ICU Beds and Staff.

Below you will see ICU Beds Available 3. Remember they are supposed to have 13.

Michael,
I don’t know specifically, but I do know many hospitals now are able to easily convert rooms to ICU… it is not like the ICU wards they use to have.  Most rooms now are set up to convert to ICU.

SACRAMENTO — The California Senate on Wednesday joined the Assembly in deciding not to return from its summer recess next week, citing the continued spread of the coronavirus, which has now infected several staffers and members in the Legislature.

SamTrans wake the F… up. PANDEMIC

By Michael G. Stogner

NO MASK NO RIDE NO MASK NO DRIVE

Fire who ever approved the SOFT APPROACH to enforcing masks.

Send drivers home who don’t wear masks. Mike Levinson, chair of the San Mateo County Paratransit Coordinating Council, during the meeting said SamTrans bus drivers themselves are not always wearing masks.

A SamTrans board member and others called for stricter enforcement of face coverings aboard buses at a meeting Wednesday.

While masks are currently required when in public, SamTrans has been taking a “soft approach” to enforcing the rule on its buses, said Chief Operating Officer David Olmeda during the meeting.

SamTrans Board Member Charles Stone, also Belmont vice mayor, wants that to change.

“Morally I think we have an obligation to institute a mandatory face covering rule as soon as possible,” Stone said. “I think we have to abandon the soft approach and go with a much stricter approach.

“No one should be getting on our buses without a face covering,” he continued. “It’s not just about the health and safety of other riders. It’s about the health and safety of our operators as well.”

Olmeda said the “soft approach” to enforcement was implemented to avoid altercations between bus drivers and defiant riders.

“One of the things we’ve learned from other transit agencies is when we take a very hard line or depend on the operators to take a hard line we increase the opportunity to get aggression and have problems on board our vehicles,” Olmeda said. “We’ve taken a softer approach because quite frankly at this point in time everyone understands in society that masks are required.”

Instead of having drivers enforce the mask requirement, automatic messages and signs on buses “encourage” the use of face coverings, Olmeda said.

Stone argued that managing insolent riders is part of the bus driver’s job description, adding the agency’s drivers are up to the task.

“I’m certainly sensitive to the fact that we don’t necessarily want our operators to have to deal with the unpleasant situation if someone doesn’t want to wear a face covering, however, I know our operators are really good at dealing with difficult customers already. They’re fantastic about that,” he said. “You have to be able to deal with folks who are not necessarily listening to you when you tell them don’t come over the line or sit down while the bus is in motion. … I think they can handle this.”

Mike Levinson, chair of the San Mateo County Paratransit Coordinating Council, during the meeting said SamTrans bus drivers themselves are not always wearing masks.

“We’ve had a couple of complaints from riders that drivers on Redi-Wheels have not had masks and they’re assisting people with wheelchairs and seat belts,” he said. “I completely agree with [Stone’s] sentiments.”

Officials did not indicate whether the SamTrans’ mask enforcement policy will change in the near future, but Olmeda said the agency is currently exploring whether to store masks on buses so they can be given to riders who don’t have them.

During the meeting, officials said a blend of local and school service will be restored by August. Certain bus lines including the Route ECR that services El Camino Real as well as 23 community routes in low-income areas will return to preCOVID-19 service levels, though other routes will be suspended. Suspended routes include the SFO, which services the airport, and FCX, which travels between Foster City and San Francisco, as well as 15 community routes.

Officials also noted average weekday ridership on SamTrans has been increasing 6% to 8% week over week over the past three weeks.
