That's disturbing. This says that as of today, 3/19, there are now 53 cases in Orange County.

OC confirmed cases (Up from 42 to 53 in less than one day) continue to climb, maybe due to more testing, but we are kept in the dark regarding the "hot spots," or cities involved.

The state/county can order closed private gyms, bars, restaurants, theaters and more, but still is operating the buses and subways systems (LA) as normal.

Really?

Metro continues to run regular bus and rail service at this time for those who rely on public transportation to access health care, food, and other essential resources. If we are forced to make any service changes, we will update here and on Twitter @metrolosangeles; be sure to keep an eye on this space. If you are able to stay home, please do so.

The key phrase is "Metro continues to run regular bus and rail service at this time". People are allowed to decide for themselves what "other essential resources" are. I guarantee you no one is asking when they get on a bus or subway, "Is this for a doctor's appointment, grocery shopping or something vital?".

The point is, government isn't following the same guidelines they are mandating on others.

Where is this [imaginary] section of HIPAA?

53 Test Positive For Coronavirus In OC, Economic Fallout
The OC Healthcare Agency upped the total of stricken residents. While businesses comply with strict rules, residents' livelihoods suffer.

Patch has reached out to the Orange County Healthcare Agency and the Emergency Operations Center of Orange County, as well as received word from Supervisor Andrew Do's office and Sen. Patricia Bates office.

The County Board of Supervisors discussed releasing data by city during their Tuesday meeting "and initially it was going to be shown, according to a spokesman from Sen. Patricia Bates' office. "However with HIPAA laws, they can either show city by city data or age and gender data – they cannot show all.

According to Patch's research, releasing the city would not go against HIPAA laws.

Another reason, according to a letter received from Patricia Bates' office, regarded whether knowing the cities of residence would cause fear in some or "laissez faire attitude" in others.

OC coronavirus cases are now up to 65 as of 3/20/20, but we aren't told if the cases are clustered, or if they are pretty much evenly distributed throughout the county.

We do know that a child or adolescent (someone under the age of 18) has tested positive for the first time.

UC Irvine announced that a non-student resident living in campus family housing tested positive for coronavirus but is in good condition.

“The risk to the general campus population remains low,” UCI said in a statement. “As testing becomes more available in the coming weeks, it is likely that we will become aware of additional positive cases within the UCI community.”

Orange County on Saturday and the total number of case rose from 65 to 78.

An Orange County firefighter at Station 4 In Irvine has tested positive for COVID-19 but is “feeling fine,” officials said Friday .

For those who are in need of food, Second Harvest plans to host pop-up distribution centers every Saturday:

Amid coronavirus fears, food bank pop-up at Honda Center draws long lines of cars

As cars snaked a mile around the Honda Center, with people waiting up to two hours for a bag of potatoes, a bag of apples and a bag of foods that won’t perish, Second Harvest Food Bank CEO Harald Herrmann took in the new reality.

“Clearly this is unprecedented,” he said of the coronavirus pandemic. “The demand for food from residents of this county is staggering. The job loss coupled with school closures is putting tremendous pressure on many working-class families in this community,” Herrmann said.

Second Harvest used social media to promote Saturday’s pop-up distribution center, with plans in place to make this a weekly service. They were prepared to serve 4,000 but served 2,700 of the most at-risk, vulnerable families through the honor system.

To help curb the spread of COVID-19, Orange County public schools are on an extended hiatus, but that doesn’t mean students won’t have access to healthy meals.

In fact, most local districts are offering grab-and-go meals at no cost to any student 18 years and younger, regardless of where they go to school.

Here’s a look at the school districts offering meals in your are.
