Seven Deaths & 31 New COVID-19 Cases in Amador County Since Friday

Amador County, CA – Amador County Public Health confirms another seven deaths due to COVID-19 and 31 additional cases in Amador since Friday’s COVID-19 update. The individuals who passed were residents of Jackson and Pine Grove, in their 60s, 80s, and 90s and each had underlying conditions placing them at higher risk for COVID-19 complications. Today during the Amador County Board of Supervisors meeting a moment of silence was observed to honor the memory of the first community members to die from COVID-19 complications.




The new cases reinforce the same pattern of virus spread. Currently the pathways of spread in
Amador are:
(1) Congregate living transmission
(2) Family or co-worker transmission
(3) Community transmission
The increased spread may likely place Amador County on the State Data Monitoring Watch List when the State resumes Watch List activity. Moving on to this list would mean additional sectors would be required to move their operations outside including gyms, fitness centers, places of worship and cultural ceremonies, and personal care services like nail salons, waxing salons, hair salons, and barbershops.

Shops that offer tattoos, piercings and electrolysis are required to close in
counties on the State Watch List.

Four of the new cases reside in Ione, 17 live in Jackson, 2 live in Pine Grove, 1 lives in Plymouth, 5
live in Sutter Creek, and 2 reside in Volcano. The new cases include 20 females and 11 males, 1 child under the age of 18, 10 age 18-49, 4 age 50-65, and 16 over age 65.

These cases include outbreaks within skilled nursing and long term care facilities. Six cases are currently hospitalized locally and one case is hospitalized out of county.

Total cases in Amador to date = 195 cases.
Total hospitalized in Amador County = 6 cases.
Total hospitalized out-of-county = 1 case.
Total confirmed COVID-19 deaths = 10 deaths.
Total active cases = 48 cases.
Total cases released from isolation to date = 137 cases. Cases are released from isolation when they are no longer infectious.

Practicing consistent precautions, including within the workplace, makes an impact in reducing the spread of COVID-19. These precautions include practicing 6-foot physical distancing and wearing masks or face coverings even during break times and commuting together. Gathering should be avoided.

Vulnerable, high risk individuals are encouraged to stay home as much as possible. This includes persons over age 65 and those with chronic health conditions that put them at higher risk for severe COVID-19.

All should avoid mixing with others outside your household. Avoid unnecessary travel. Stay home if you are sick. Stay home if you have symptoms and are awaiting test results.

      it would be nice if they could give tracing info to the public.
      Without giving specific names of people, it would be informative to the public to find out where the spreading takes place. Not just the towns, but specific locations within a town where the patient may suspect they became infected.
      Whether it be a home, a social gathering, a business, a church, or whatever place can be given.

        sorry but it's HIPPA regulations. Seems like a bit of a parody, but rules are rules.

            So could Galvin but that would hurt CA economy, and might force the 5th largest Economy in the World to use some of our savings account. With an Economy that HUGE, what the heck, we should use it for the safety of our illegals in the state.

    We have many of their same problems though. We refuse to discuss or deal with our dangerous heavy metals such as arsenic and mercury from mining. Do you think the wineries are testing for it? Do we have any organic wine? Nope!

    I think you're right, I'm voting for Trump in November. Socialism with Biden and Harris? No thank you. Look at those democrats up north in Washington and Oregon, letting the criminals take over. Biden/ Harris will want legal gun owners to hand them in, while those violent criminals keep theirs? No Thanks!!!
    8 million guns sales in the last few months, why? Democrats violent protesting. I wonder if those dems who bought their guns legally will turn theirs in? I'm doubting it.
