I also shopped at another Asian supermarket in Garden Grove, and it was a zoo. I will never go back there again. Madness.
Huh. The last time I was there was yesterday and the attendant at the door was making sure everyone had a mask. One young man didn't have one, and she sent him back to his car to get it.

Maybe they have other employees that are less rigorous?

Yes, It depends on the people who guard the entrance.

So far the "new and improved" Covid death reporting system still seems a little off. OC gave the numbers of 17 deaths yesterday and 0 today. That doesn't sound likely.

We were 0 for many days last week and then we jumped up a few days, people said that’s a surge in CV cases, I think it’s a delay in reporting. Whatever I take 0 deaths on any day.

Orange County on edge of California coronavirus watch list
The state could urge the county to return to a modified lock-down mode.

Quote:
The spread of coronavirus in Orange County has grown so fast in recent weeks that the county soon could be on the state’s watch list for possible renewed lockdown orders.

Locally, two key metrics used by state and local health officials to measure the spread of the disease — rates of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents and the percentage of people who test positive for the virus — are already at or beyond the state’s watch-list threshold.

Orange County put one toe over one line on Friday, June 26, when the positive test rate locally hit 8.5%, just over the 8% limit set by the state.

Also on Friday, the county reported that COVID-related hospitalizations grew 17.6% over the previous three days, well over the state threshold of 10%.

It’s unclear if the new data will prompt the state to put Orange County on its watch list, which already includes Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, among others. State officials look for at least three days of data to establish a trend before deciding to add counties to the watch list.

If Orange County winds up on the list, and if recent trends aren’t reversed, a renewed lockdown could be on the table.

It says recent weeks, but not yesterday. I think the more testing is done, the cases will spike up. We will have more health issues if we lock down again and not just COVID.

This line in the new Covid website needs to be fixed:

Quote:
Includes 170 SNF residents, 0 OC jail inmates, and 2 Persons Experiencing Homelessness
Clearly, the first two groups should be Persons Residing in Skilled Nursing Facilities and Persons Experiencing Incarceration.

This is no surprise:

State puts Orange County on coronavirus watch list

Jump in hospitalizations, positive test results means O.C. is one of 19 state counties that could be subject to renewed lockdown orders.

Coronavirus is spreading quickly enough locally that on Monday state health officials put Orange County on a watch list of counties in danger of facing new lockdown orders.

In its assessment, California’s Dept. of Public Health cited outbreaks at assisted living facilities, memory care facilities and other communal homes in Orange County as key drivers behind the boost in positive tests for coronavirus and an upturn in hospitalizations.

The state health department also formed an action plan that Orange County leaders can use to slow the disease and avoid renewed lockdown orders.

Orange County is one of 19 California counties to be put on the state’s monitoring list, which closely tracks metrics such as rates of new cases per 100,000 residents, averages of positive tests and new hospitalizations. Others include Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

The move wasn’t unexpected. In recent weeks, the spread of coronavirus in Orange County inched closer to surpassing key criteria laid out by the state meant to flag troubled counties

Laguna Beach to close its beaches on July 4th
https://www.ocregister.com/2020/06/3...ourth-of-july/


Quote:
Laguna Beach’s city beaches will be closed on the Fourth of July in light of an accelerating spread of the coronavirus in Orange County that has been concerning officials the last few days.

The unanimous City Council decision followed an hours-long discussion on ways to mitigate problems associated with large crowds gathering on the city’s beaches – especially with a popular holiday coming up – and a spike in COVID cases in Orange County. If there is the need, City Manager John Pietig can extend the planned beach closures to Friday and Sunday as well, City Council members said on Tuesday, June 30.

On that same day the Orange County Health Care Agency reported 10 new deaths, increasing the total number of people who have died from the coronavirus to 340 in the county.

“No matter what we do there will be no perfect solution,” said Councilman Steve Dicterow, adding that he believes a high percentage of the people coming into Laguna Beach are there to visit the beaches.
