San Mateo County Residents Cover your Face.

By Michael G. Stogner

For Immediate Release
New Bay Area Public Health Recommendation to Cover the Face

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Bay Area health officials are recommending residents cover their nose and mouth with cloth when leaving home for essential travel such as doctor appointments, grocery shopping or pharmacy visits.

The regional recommendation aligns with new guidance from the California Department of Public Health.

The face coverings do not have to be hospital grade but need to cover the nose and mouth. For example, bandanas, fabric masks and neck gaiters are acceptable. Fabric covers and bandanas can be washed and used again.

Health officials do not recommend that the public use medical masks (N-95 or surgical masks), which are in limited supply and must be preserved for our health care workers and first responders.

Up until now, local officials have not recommended the large-scale use of face coverings, but circumstances have changed.

Covering the nose and mouth with cloth also may be beneficial as a reminder to keep physical distancing. Health officials continue to stress that staying home, frequent hand

Cloth face coverings, when combined with physical distancing and hand washing, may prevent transmission of coronavirus to others when leaving the house for essential activities.

Medical masks should be preserved for health care workers and first responders

“In addition to shelter-in-place and social distancing requirements, wearing a mask in public is an important tool to stop the community spread of this disease,” says Scott Morrow, MD, San Mateo County health officer. “People with no or mild symptoms may have coronavirus and not know it. Wearing face coverings helps protect others from exposure.”

washing and physical distancing are the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

Acceptable face coverings can be made of a variety of cloth materials, be factory-made or hand-sewn, or can be improvised using bandanas, scarves, t-shirts, sweatshirts or towels.

Face coverings should be washed frequently with detergent and hot water and dried on a hot cycle. Ideally, wash your face covering after each use, and have a dedicated laundry bag or bin.

Make sure the covering is comfortable – you don’t want to have to keep adjusting the mask, which means touching your face. Always wash your hands, or use hand sanitizer, before AND after touching your face or face coverings.

San Mateo County Courts Closed for 60 Days.

By Michael G. Stogner

All courts in the State of California are closed and cases are delayed for 60 days. Better late then never, this was a no-brainer. San Mateo County Supervisors might take this time and finally secure the 400 County Center Building as they should have years ago. People entering the building without going through the metal detectors every single day.

Hon. Judge Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye Order

Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye said in her order that court facilities were “ill-equipped to effectively allow the social distancing and other public health requirements” that have been imposed across California to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

  • I am working on a special assignment related to response to Covid-19 and it may take me a longer than usual amount of time to respond.  Please bear with me.

What are you and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman providing as a Safe Quarantine Location for Deputies who come into contact with potential COVID-19 carriers, or Confirmed people with the virus? Is there a location for them to safely stay away from their families if that is what the Spouses desire.

Has the Jail Population been reduced?

Have you instructed the Patrol Deputies to interact with the public in a different way since Jan. 20, 2020?

San Mateo County Sheriff G. Bolanos has refused to answer that Question?

Hello Rosemerry and Sheriff Carlos Bolanos,
Can you tell me How many Test Kits does the Sheriff’s Office have on hand today, What is the Policy for patrol Deputies interacting with the public and when should they be testing for their safety. Since COVID-19 Positive Results are from people who show no sign of illness, what are you and D.J Wozniak advising the Deputies and Sergeants to do to Protect themselves and their families. Have you provided a safe location for Deputies to self Quarantine away from their families if that is what the spouses request.
Have you had any Deputies or Correctional Officers tested for COVID-19 to date. Have any tested positive? Do you have any staff of Self Quarantine today?

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

COVID-19 Testing is the Most Important action that can take place.

How many Tests Kits do you have Sheriff Bolanos?

Supervisors approve Funding for Seaton Medical Center Hospital.

By Michael G. Stogner

March 10, 2020 Special Meeting held at 3:00PM the Supervisors voted 4-1 (Supervisor Pine voted No) in favor of providing $20,000,000 at $5,000,000 per year for 4 year term. The actual terms are not made yet and there are many variables that will take more time.

Supervisors Don Horsley and David Canepa had made the only motion/proposal to provide money. At one point Canepa called the $20M a loan. Now a loan is a much different subject and County Counsel John Beiers reminded Canepa that his motion was for a Grant not a loan. That is just one small example of how complicated this subject was.

The below ink is the Supervisor Meeting and Vote it starts at 3:05 mark

Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Homicide. SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere got it right. 6 Involved Parties

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors met in Closed Session yesterday Jan. 14, 2020 to discuss settling the Maureen Okobi vs. San Mateo County and 5 of its 6 Employees case.

Maureen Okobi is the mother Chinedu Okobi who was legally walking down the sidewalk on the Millbrae side of El Camino Real at 1:00PM on Wednesday October 3, 2018. After interacting with SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees for 9:10 he was completely Unresponsive. When a monitor was put on him 10 minutes later it was Flatlined. At San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office closed to the public Press Conference on March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “What was the Manner of Death?” At that point he confirmed what SMCCO Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz reported in December 2018. Chinedu Okobi’s death was ruled a Homicide.

The only San Mateo County District Attorney Employee to Include SMCSO Employee civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales was SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere 80215

October 3, 2018 2:50PM

San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Trickett was the Incident Commander at the scene. He identified the “Involved Parties.”

Involved Parties:

Sergeant David Weidner

Deputy Joshua Wang

Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti

Deputy John Demartini

Deputy Bryan Watt

Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales

So the question is Who & How many San Mateo County Employees/Elected Officials had knowledge and were involved in the False Narrative of FIVE SMCSO INVOLVED PARTIES.

It’s pretty simple if you are willing to Falsify Police Reports, and produce 3 False Sheriff News Releases (Sheriff Carlos Bolanos & PIO Rosemary Blankswade) Why should the residents of San Mateo County believe anything you say or report?

Video prepared and provided by SMCDA on March 1, 2019

7:21 mark clearly shows CSO Joseph Gonzales spraying O.C. that equals Involved.

Get involved San Mateo County Residents, you are responsible for your elected officials behavior.

SMCDA Inspectors Jamie Draper and John Warren should be on the Brady List.

By Michael G. Stogner

A reasonable person would expect the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Lead Investigator and his boss to provide Honest & Accurate Information at all times. In the Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Homicide Investigation involving SIX Sheriff Employees that is not the case.

Inspector Jamie Draper identifies CSO Joseph Gonzales as a Witness not a Participant. Why? He’s the one spraying the O.C. spray in the video.

The statement below was provided (Unknown date) by SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper and approved by SMCDA John Warren.

OMMISSION: Homicide

December 31, 2018 Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 

“I have determined the manner of death to be Homicide.”

CORONERS REPORT SUMMARY

On December 31, 2018 I received the Coroner’s Office Report, prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. The report included redacted sections related to Decedent Chinedu Okobi’s medical treatment on October 3, 2018 as well as redacted sections related to his previous medical and mental treatments pursuant to 56.10 of the California Civil Code. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz included a summary of the attempts by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office personnel to detain Decedent Okobi and noted Okobi was found be “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment.

  1. prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  2. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  3. “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene. The video provided to the public by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe CONFIRMS Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz’s statement.
  4. and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment. Jamie Draper should identify the Fire Department Paramedics by name and what time on the video did that take place, there are NO CAPTIONS and the video DOES NOT support his statement.

On March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a private Press Conference announcing his decision not to charge the Five Sheriff Employees with any criminal charges. During his 26 minute presentation he Omitted the SIXTH Sheriff Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales and Omitted the word Homicide. That only popped out at the 47:40 mark when KQED Reporter Julie Small asked what was the manner of Death?

That doesn’t seem very Honest does it?

Steve Wagstaffe also stated:“From that point on” approaching the 9 minute mark on the video.” “The Sheriff Office and our review of their conduct is done. Sheriff Office turned him over to AMR.”

The video that Mr. Wagstaffe provided the public does NOT SUPPORT that statement, it shows AMR people at 17:54 mark. not approaching the 9 minute mark. That is a 9 minute difference, not a couple of seconds.

San Mateo County 455 Building has both elevators out of Service at the same time.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy has informed San Mateo County News.com last night at 10:00 PM. “Happy to report the problem appears to be fixed at this time and we once again have a working elevator in the 455 building.”

What are the odds? San Mateo County’s Cardio Program at work. This is tough on the disabled and elderly.

A SMC Employee said one of the Elevators has not been working for over a week.
