Pacifica Beach Yoga Court Ordered Closed

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Finally Enforcing State Orders. Enforcement is the most important part of any Order.

Thursday Jan 21, 2021 Hon. Judge Danny Chou granted the county’s request for a temporary restraining order that Pacifica Beach Yoga immediately shut down

San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers “Our community rightly expects that when its state government imposes shelter-in-place laws, those laws will be enforced justly and equitably to ensure that everyone is playing by the same rules.

Next Court date is Feb, 4, 2021

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.

Stay Safe Best of Health to You

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.

Flying with COVID-19 from SFO.

By Michael G. Stogner

Something to think about, is there a risk in getting on an Airplane for a 5 hour flight?

Now add with a couple who have tested Positive for COVID-19.

Now add who were ordered not to board the Airplane but they did anyway.

That is what just happened this week on a United Flight from San Francisco International located in San Mateo County to Hawaii. They were arrested upon arrival in Hawaii. You might ask How were they allowed to board? How was the plane allowed to takeoff? and many more questions.

Wesley Moribe, 41, and Courtney Paterson, 46, of Wailua, Hawaii, face charges of “reckless endangering” after they put fellow passengers “in danger of death,” according to a statement from the Kauai Police Department.

Remember this is a Pandemic, we have never experienced one before. There is nobody to enforce the rules of behavior. What makes you think others are concerned about your Health and Safety?

Best of Health, Stay Safe, Stay Home.

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

San Mateo County COVID-19 Data is Flawed.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County was the only County in the entire Bay Area to remain off of the State of California’s Watchlist. Why was that a goal for the Supervisors and County Manager instead of Protecting the Residents of SMC.

San Mateo County News.com has reported for weeks that the data did not add up. We also contacted County Manager Mike Callagy to explain the additional 15 ICU Beds and Staff that were reported on a single day only to disappear the next day.

His response was:

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.
Mike

Its fair to say that a Shut Down is in order until the real data is available.

Why would anybody believe San Mateo County with SFO and San Jose International Airport to the South not be a natural HotSpot.

 

SAN MATEO COUNTY HEALTH DATA

A significant unresolved problem with the State of California’s reporting system for communicable diseases (California Reportable Disease Information Exchange [CalREDIE]), has resulted in significant underreporting of COVID-19 testing results to San Mateo County Health and local health departments state-wide. Local health departments are receiving incomplete information regarding laboratory test results, which affects our ability to identify new cases of COVID-19, to accurately report the testing positivity rate in our community, and to identify the number of persons tested for the last few weeks. Without timely reports of all new lab results, it is impossible for the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and local health officials to identify the extent to which COVID-19 is circulating in the community. It also hinders our ability to conduct effective contact tracing and case investigations to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The extent of this issue is currently unknown, and the expected resolution date is also unknown.  San Mateo County Health is in conversations with CDPH, working to rapidly resolve this issue and creating new paths for laboratory results to be reported to our County. In the meantime, we are continuing to report the testing data we do receive and will make clear to the public which data reported on our website are affected by this issue. Data currently affected are in the County Data Dashboard, the Lab Testing Data Dashboard, the Cases by City map, and the Long Term Care Facility Data Dashboard. CDPH has confirmed that although received data are incomplete, the data are valid for those results we are receiving. We expect the testing positivity rate, the daily and cumulative case counts, and other data points on the County’s COVID-19 data dashboards to change as more complete test results are reported to San Mateo County Health.

31 Costco Employees Positive for COVID-19 at 4 Silicon Valley locations.

By Michael G. Stogner

I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy How many San Mateo County Costco Employees have tested positive? His response was “Michael I do not have that information.” That would be good for the Residents of SMC to know.

The cases were reported to the county by Costco after workers reported their diagnoses to the company. 

Where were they tested and by who?

The LATIMES reported today that 31 employees from four locations in Santa Clara County have tested positive for COVID-19.

The largest cluster of coronavirus cases among workers of the warehouse chain’s stores in Santa Clara County — Northern California’s most populous — is the Costco in Sunnyvale, where 13 cases were reported between July 23 and 26.

Cases were also reported at Costco locations in San Jose on Senter Road, southeast of downtown, with eight cases between July 17 and 22; Gilroy, with six cases between July 24 and 30; and Mountain View, with four cases between July 15 and 29.

San Mateo County Data Dashboard.

How does San Mateo County Government tell you that on July 30, 2020 there were 64 New Cases. Where does that data come from? It should come from LAB TESTING DATA. When you look at LTD you’ll see there is NO DATA for July 30, 2020.

Supervisor David Canepa is the problem.

By Michael G. Stogner

david_canepa

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.”
