Jackson Man & Pine Grove Teen Push Amador COVID-19 Cases to 33

Amador County, CA...Amador County Public Health reports two additional cases of COVID-19 in Amador County. One case is a male resident of Jackson in his 30s and the other is a teenage resident of Pine Grove. One of the new cases was exposed at a family gathering, became ill and sought care. The contact tracing continues this evening and all close personal contacts will be monitored by the Health Department.




Total positive COVID-19 cases in Amador to date = 33. Total currently in isolation at home = 14. Total currently hospitalized in isolation = 1. Total recovered = 18.

Amador Public Health reminds our community of the importance of individual actions to help slow the spread of this disease and to protect ourselves and our families:  Indoor interaction is more risky than outdoor.  Avoid group gatherings.  Limit the number of others you interact with outside your household.  Stay home if you are sick.  When you go out, practice social distancing, wear a face covering, and wash your hands as soon as possible afterward.  Avoid unnecessary travel.  Regularly clean high-touch surfaces.  Persons over age 65 and those with chronic health conditions that put them at higher risk for severe COVID-19 should continue to stay home as much as possible.

So one guy in his 30's and a teenager got it. Most likely outcome is it will be no worse than the flu and they will be fine in a few days. Young people have figured out the virus poses very little risk to them, and they are unwilling to put their lives on hold any longer. They've carried the load in the early part of the pandemic, as they've been sent home from college, laid off from jobs, had internships and travel cancelled. Their attitude now is that if you are in a vulnerable category, you should quarantine yourself, they're not doing it anymore. They will take their chances and get us closer to herd immunity. Can't say I blame them, as long as they aren't in contact with vulnerable people, I think they are making a reasonable decision.

    Nick Cordero, a Broadway actor who starred in hits like Rock of Ages and Waitress, died on Sunday of complications from covid-19. The 41-year-old had been battling the virus since March.

    Cordero was hospitalized with covid-19 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in March and was in the ICU for more than 90 days. He underwent a leg amputation in April; he was also put into a medically induced coma, which he woke up from in mid-May, and was waiting for a double lung transplant when he died.

      Every doctor who has written about treating COVID patients all say the same thing - “this is like nothing we’ve seen before.” It behaves strangely, unpredictably, and attacks multiple organs. This is not the goddamn flu, people! Wear your *bleep*ing mask.

        According to the CDC, the rate of hospitalization for people who test positive for the coronavirus in their 20s is under 4%, and the fatality rate for people in their 20s and 30s without underlying health conditions is about 0.1%. Since the number of people who have caught the disease is vastly understated according to numerous studies you can google yourself, the actual stats are even lower than what the CDC states. Young people aren't afraid of this, so they will take their chances and the number infected people will continue to grow whether or not you yell at them to wear a mask. If you are in a high risk category, you need to quarantine yourself rather than rely on everyone around you to stay home, wear masks, etc.

          The largest risk factor after age is obesity. If you have a BMI greater than 30, you are high risk for having a bad covid outcome.

          Youth isn't the only thing to consider.

            99% of cases are totally harmless. My President wouldn’t lie about something like that...

              Only if you think needing to be hospitalized is harmless, which happens in 20% of cases.

                Bottom line? Us youngsters don't give a crapp about you oldtimers, whether you are family or not! Get over it, get out of the way, we are taking over.

            Hey! It’s Russell! 🖕
            Remember everyone, Russell Irish think it’s just fine if you die of Covid if you’re fat, because you kind of deserve it anyway.
            Also if you’re old.
            Of have any sort of pre-existing condition.
            Or if he finds you unattractive.
            Or if you’re not a Trump supporter.

          Ditto...well said! Unless everyone plans on making this a norm...Even after a vaccine, it isn’t disappearing and it will be just like having the flu every year. The Covid is not going anywhere anytime soon. If the masks and isolation continue long term your immune system is going to shut down on its own and everything will make you sicker including the basic flu. No I do not wish harm on or want people to die...but herd immunity has a positive side. How do you think kids make it through school! Strong immune systems!

            A small group of us (less than 10) got together at our place with my roommates and I and our neighbors for a big holiday feast and store bought fireworks out on the street (a small side street with little traffic). All of us are healthy. As for family one family was there and of course the rest of us and a couple of neighbors (which we are like family), are all healthy and have distant relatives. We don't have the funds to travel and visit with relatives either . We are all just poor white folk having an enjoyable traditional 4th. We obey all laws and we aren't the kind who tear down statues or riot either. We are patriotic to our country. We are all surviving the best that we can without hurting others and it was like our own little social circle. We actually practiced social distancing whenever we could and had all the chairs spaced out on the street where we sat to observe our own little fireworks show (all lit in an old wash tub) and had a hose nearby and no incidents! So we practiced our own Safe and Sane 4th.

    Complications from covid19 are causing permanent disabilities in all age groups. Stop minimizing the severity of this novel virus and mask up. If you're young you may not die, but you may suffer permanent and major health problems for the rest of your life.
