    The first case in Tuolumne County has been brought up by a tourist who did not practice the stay at home recommendation.
    From officials in Tuolumne ~ "Riggs adds, “They self-isolated at their home, therefore, the risk for community exposure is minimal. This means the case will not count as a case for Tuolumne but will count for the county in which they reside.” No they didn't self-isolate themselves at home, they came here and you damn well know they went shopping up here. Add to the fact, did the virus carrier feel ill and go to the Dr's? Of course the dope did, or we would not of known about it.
    Thanks ashhole, from a person who takes care of an elder.

        You forget that our second homeowners pay a huge portion of our local expenses through their taxes. in many cases our local school districts would not survive without them.

        Random tourists fleeing the bay area we can all discourage but our second home owners have paid and continue to pay to be a part of our communities.

          Man you just want attention don’t you? It’s always something or someone else’s fault isn’t it? You codependent little pig, squealing about because life didn’t work out the way you thought it should. Get over yourselves, I work at a nursing home and take care of ELDERS.

          You’re no one, just an inept person who thinks they deserve more credit than those who really do their job in a time of need.

          But keep crying you little snowflake. Because it is not about you this time. And I doubt you take care of any elderly considering your lack of empathy and discord,

          This town is not yours, this state is not your, but your opinions certainly are, though they are not correct, you consider the air we are all free to breathe....yours.........

          No I didn’t grow up here, but I am a resident of Tuolumne, and you put locals to shame thinking the ground you walk on is your own right, the air you breathe is your property. We all agree rich people flooding areas is a crazy thing to deal with, but you have zero control over it, yet you think a shameful act to be shameless because of a stigma you bow to, you’re not even a local yourself, you just reside in place without retrospect. Grow up, move out of mommy’s basement. You’re an snowflake not a true Republican like us.

          STFU all ready!

            Does not matter, I own the rights to the property I bought, I paid taxes on the purchase and pay the property taxes annually like any law abiding citizen should.

            If you had a second home, which was nicer than your first residence, and in times like these, would you not vacate to the property that allowed for a greater time in quarantine?

            What is wrong with me, accessing my property, which I own and am responsible for?

            You don’t own the town, the streets, the businesses or sidewalks, you don’t own the grocery stores, the pharmacies, the hospitals or the pastures around you.

            I own ACRES of property in Sonora, sold by an old rancher. It’s my property, they are my fields, it may not be my town but it is my HOME! You have no control to the rights that I own do you😉?

                Just because we are of the same political ideology doesn't mean we need to agree on everything.

                Just because you have the RIGHT to go to your second home in a small town with VERY limited healthcare capacity, doesn't mean it is THE RIGHT THING TO DO during a pandemic.

                Personally, I think the whole pandemic thing is WAY overblown but if we are playing by the rules, were playing by the rules. . .

1,046 Deaths in the US already? Wow, 46 deaths ago Dementia Joe
would of acted if we go by the records of his actions in 2009
Kind of scary that he and most democrats said Trump was
a racist and fearmongering when he took actions in January and
banned and restricted flights from places in China.
Thanks Mr President for your swift actions, but you better listen to
the experts for a change, because you don't know everything.
We know you are conceited and egomaniac jerk, but with the
fantastic
job you have done, I guess it's worth it. Sure beats what Dementia
Joe would of done.

Numbers would be far higher, but they're only counting those tested. I only know of one person in my circle who has been tested.

Thought this was all a hoax to make Trump look bad?
Thought the number was 15 and will be 0 by the end of the week?
Thought a million tests will roll out by the end of the week (three weeks ago)?

God help us. We can't count on this Administration.

      The number of coronavirus cases in the West is skyrocketing, and countries have announced drastic measures, including school closures and lockdowns.

      The outbreak hit many countries in Asia several weeks earlier - and some have been praised for containing the number of infections. For example, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan all kept case numbers relatively low - despite their proximity to mainland China.

      What did they do differently - and are there any lessons for other countries?

      Lesson one: Take it seriously - and act quickly

      Health experts agree on the same measures for containing the outbreak - test widely, isolate those infected, and encourage social distancing. Such measures are being adopted to varying degrees in the West now - but a key difference is that many countries didn't act as quickly.

        Lesson two: Make tests extensive, and affordable.

        South Korea had a rapid approvals system in place for infectious disease tests, following an outbreak.

        By contrast, testing in the US was delayed - initial test kits were faulty, and private laboratories found it hard to get their tests approved. Many people struggled to get a test, and they were expensive. Eventually, free testing for everyone was passed in law.

        Meanwhile, the UK has said that only those in hospital will be routinely tested. That makes it harder to identify cases with milder symptoms.

          Lesson three: Trace and isolate
          It's not enough to just test those with symptoms - tracing those with whom they were in contact has been key.

          In Singapore, detectives have contact-traced more than 6,000 people - locating individuals with CCTV footage, testing them, and ordering them to self-isolate until their results are clear. In Hong Kong, contact tracing goes back to two days before someone develops symptoms.

          ■ How Singapore stayed one step ahead of the virus

          They have also adopted intrusive ways of ensuring that those ordered to self-isolate actually stay at home.

          In Hong Kong, new arrivals from abroad are required to wear electronic bracelets to track their movements, while in Singapore those self-isolating are contacted several times a day, and required to send photographic proof of their whereabouts.

            Lesson four: Early social distancing.

            Social distancing is considered one of the best ways of containing an outbreak.

            But the later the measures are introduced, the more extreme they need to be to work.

            In Wuhan, China, where the virus is thought to have started, five million people had left the city before the shutdown began. This led to the government imposing the biggest quarantine in human history.

            Both Italy and Spain were forced to introduce national lockdowns after their case numbers rose to the thousands.

            New York and California have ordered residents to stay at home, except for essential trips like buying groceries.

            By contrast, schools are still running in Singapore, although large public gatherings have been cancelled. In Hong Kong, schools have been closed and workers encouraged to work from home - but restaurants and bars remain open.

              Lesson five: Keep the public well informed and on side-

              "Unless you get the co-operation of the public, your policies may not be adhered to, and enforcement only goes so far," says Prof Pangestu. "The important thing is to show that policies are based on scientific evidence."

              China came under fire for being slow to acknowledge the outbreak. It allowed a large political gathering to take place in Wuhan even as concerns grew.

              The authorities also punished doctors who tried to warn others - sparking fury after one died from the virus.

              In the US, President Donald Trump has often contradicted health officials about the severity of the outbreak and the number of test kits available.

              The government has also been unable to provide information on the number of people who have been tested, as many private laboratories have not been feeding data to the CDC.

              "Outbreak response involves being transparent - that stops people panicking and hoarding things,"

                Lesson six: It's also down to individual attitudes

                It's far too simplistic to say, as some have, that Asians are more likely to comply with government orders. In Hong Kong, public trust in the government is low - and there have been months of anti-government protests.

                But, in one of the densest cities in the world, many have voluntarily socially distanced themselves - with some even avoiding Lunar New Year gatherings, the equivalent of skipping Christmas events.

                Prof Pangestu believes that while Hong Kongers do not trust the government, "they are very proud of Hong Kong, and see the outbreak as a threat to [the territory's] identity".

                Meanwhile, Karin Huster, a Seattle-based nurse and emergency field co-ordinator for Doctors Without Borders, spent a month in Hong Kong working on coronavirus training.

                She noticed many there had a strong "individual sense of responsibility" because they remembered the 2003 Sars outbreak that hit the territory particularly hard.

                That's also seen in the prevalent use of masks in part of Asia, which Ms Huster says is seen as a sign of "respect towards others".

                She noticed that occasionally people would avoid getting into a lift with her because she was not wearing a mask. By contrast, in much of the West, people have specifically been told not to wear masks unless they are ill, and many Asians have experienced harassment while wearing one.

                  When it comes to social distancing, Ms Huster says: "I think in America, people are so individualistic - it's going to be a little harder for us to sacrifice our 'freedom'."

                  She previously worked on the Ebola outbreak, where people were also required to wash hands more frequently and socially distance, and says the biggest challenge "was making people understand the need to change the way they were doing things".

                    Is all this enough to stop the virus?

                    Experts believe the more aggressive measures being put in place in Western countries will successfully slow the rate of transmissions over time. But, to get a sense of their next challenge after that, they could also look ahead to Asia.

                    Despite having contained the virus, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong are now facing a second coronavirus wave, fuelled by people entering their borders.
                    And it's not clear how long this outbreak could go on for.
