Alameda County part of new stay-at-home order to take effect here Monday

Original post made on Dec 4, 2020

Alameda is among five Bay Area counties to announce a new health order to take effect in the coming days, getting out ahead of the state's hospital ICU capacity-based plan to instead implement similar restrictions sooner locally.

We have been unbelievably lacking in following simple rules, like wearing masks. This shift, although tragically early given our hospital bed counts, is not a surprise. They are trying to get ahead of the numbers, and this is important, to protect us. Getting a vaccine is in the not too distant future, but it won’t get to most of us for months. In the meantime, stay home, wear a mask when you are out, wash your hands, and be kind to each other.

And how long after that are we going to have to wait for the so called "equity index" (the politically correct benchmark that Newsom wants) to be satisfied before the state is finally allowed to reopen? Somehow, I don't think "being kind" is going to count toward this.

It’s a pandemic. Until people are willing to do what is necessary, we are going to rock and roll to normal. Being kind is just a human thing to do.

We are still talking about masks, when they have already been debunked. If you feel the need to wear a mask then by all means do so. If wearing a mask makes you feel safe then forcing others to wear a mask contradicts your argument. To blame us for allegedly not following the rules of Dr. Fauci is offensive, disingenuous, and medically not proven. Unless you get outside yourself and listen to the medical communities (censored by social media) around the world you will be subjected to the mass hysteria created by mainstream media.

Secondly, you better think long and hard, and explore the vaccine before you take it. Do your due diligence. More then likely, you won’t take one inoculation, it will be continual. Web Link

If you haven't already gotten your flu shot, they are still available. Be sure to get one. Slowing the spread of the flu will help keep the load off health care workers needed for treating COVID-19 cases.

Be sure to follow the advice of qualified doctors and health care professionals. Examples in the Tri-Valley area would be Kaiser Permanente or Stanford Health Care ValleyCare Web Link Be sure to stay away from scams.

COVID-19 vaccines are on the way! This is great news. In the meantime, keep social distancing, wear your mask, and wash your hands. If you haven't already, you can still get your flu shot -- Talk to your doctor.

Small businesses are getting slammed right now, so if you can afford it, please order take out from a local restaurant and buy something from a local retailer.
