Calaveras Public Health Reports 3 New Cases of COVID-19 in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, Calaveras Public Health confirmed three new cases of COVID-19 in Calaveras County. The three additional cases being reported include one female and two males between 18 to 49 years of age. One case resides in District 1. Two cases are being reported in District 5. There are no new cases being reported in Districts 1, 3, and 4.





“We all play an essential role in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting the health of Calaveras County. When we make every effort to do so, we can lower our county risk level and loosen any restrictions. This will allow us to open up other businesses and activities in the county,” said Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer. “We can get there if together we practice physical distancing, wear a face covering, get tested, wash your hands often, stay home if you are sick, and avoid any gatherings especially where physical distancing and masking is not being followed.”

Calaveras County remains among California Counties where the county risk level is substantial. This means that some indoor business operations are allowed to proceed with specific modifications. Calaveras Public Health urges people to help the county lower its risk by taking necessary steps to prevent being exposed to the virus.

To date, Calaveras Public Health reports a total of 314 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Of those cases, 293 cases have since recovered while 7 cases remain active. There have been a total of 14 confirmed deaths related to COVID-19 reported in Calaveras County.

Calaveras Public Health staff continues to investigate new cases to determine any possible persons who may have had close personal contact with the positive individuals. Close contacts may be contacted by the health department, assessed and monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 illness.

Everyone is at risk for getting COVID-19 if they are exposed to the virus. Some people are more likely than others to become severely ill. This means that they may need to be hospitalized, require a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die. Older adults and people with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness and death from COVID-19.

The best ways to avoid exposure to the virus are to:
 Stay home if you are sick
 Stay at least 6 feet away from people outside of your household
 Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
 Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
 Wear a face covering over your nose and mouth when around others

Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
 Fever or chills
 Cough
 Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
 Fatigue
 Muscle or body aches
 Headache
 New loss of taste or smell
 Sore throat
 Congestion or runny nose
 Nausea or vomiting
 Diarrhea

Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing signs, seek emergency care immediately:
 Trouble breathing
 New confusion or weakness
 Bluish lips or face
 Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
 Inability to wake or stay awake

No-cost testing for COVID-19 is available to anyone who would like to get tested. The OptumServe COVID-19 testing site located at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds is open Tuesday-Saturday from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Testing is available to those age 3 and older. Walk-in are accepted. People can also register online. People without Internet access should call (888) 634-1123. To receive information and resources related to COVID-19 visit the Calaveras County COVID-19 website.

It’s likely that flu viruses and coronavirus (COVID-19) will both spread this fall and winter. Our local healthcare system could become overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19. Getting a flu vaccine this year is more important than ever. While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, there are many benefits to getting it. Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death. Getting a flu vaccine can also save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19. Prevent flu this fall and winter. Join us on October 15th from 9AM-4PM at Calaveras High School for a no-cost drive thru flu clinic for those 10 years of age and older. Please speak with your local medical provider or pharmacist for flu vaccine to those under 10 years of age. The event is a collaboration between Calaveras Public Health and Dignity Health Mark Twain Medical Center.

To receive information and resources related to COVID-19 visit the Calaveras County COVID-19 website.

            I believe you're going to be surprised come election time. Lots of Republicans upset and disappointed about how far the party has strayed from their basic tenets including fiscal austerity. Trump is a demagogue not a true Republican.

    The only way to beat them is to send donations, however small, to Dem candidates. The DSSC is the main Senate PAC. And there is Biden for president. Also, Act Blue and Vote Vets are two good places to donate.

    It takes a lot of small donations to compete with the hundreds of millions of dollars the Republicans donate to their candidates.

The analyses found that SARS-CoV-2 caused the levels of ACE in the lung cells to decrease, while the levels of ACE2 increased. This in turn increased the levels of a molecule known as bradykinin in the cells (referred to as a ‘Bradykinin Storm’). . Previous studies have shown that bradykinin induces pain and causes blood vessels to expand and become leaky which will lead to swelling and inflammation of the surrounding tissue. In addition, the analyses found that production of a substance called hyaluronic acid was increased and the enzymes that could degrade it greatly decreased. Hyaluronic acid can absorb more than 1,000 times its own weight in water to form a hydrogel. The Bradykinin-Storm-induced leakage of fluid into the lungs combined with the excess hyaluronic acid would likely result in a Jello-like substance that is preventing oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide release in the lungs of severely affected COVID-19 patients.

Read that? I don’t want to try to breathe through a “Jello-like” substance. Do you?

I LOVE seeing you Democrats melt down. Now not only will DJT be YOUR President for the next 4 years but he will leave his legacy for the next 20 with our conservative/constitutionalist Supreme Count!

Given that the majority of you are retired, this means DJT will leave his legacy FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! You will NEVER forget him and his legacy. . .

And you younger libs will live with his legacy for most of your lives. Just when you think you got over your TDS, there will be a conservative Supreme Court ruling and BAM, it all comes flooding back!

The landscape of our country literally changed overnight last Friday for the next 20-30 years.

And you all thought it was only "4 more years." LOL!!!!

Made America Great Again for the next generation!
