OC now has 95 cases as of 3/22. That seems like quite a jump in only two days.

This is concerning since OC only had three COVID-19 cases on 03/03/20.

Orange County may have 2 new cases of coronavirus
The cases involve a man in his 60s and a woman in her 30s who had traveled overseas
https://www.ocregister.com/2020/03/0...f-coronavirus/

A man in his 60s and a woman in her 30s who had traveled to countries with widespread transmission of the coronavirus could be Orange County’s newest cases of the infectious disease, according to a news release issued late Tuesday afternoon, March 3, by the Orange County Health Care Agency.

The release referred to “two presumptive positive cases of COVID-19” and said samples tested by the Health Care Agency were being sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for confirmation. Results are pending.

If confirmed, that would bring positive cases discovered so far in Orange County to three. The first infected person, who tested positive in February, has recovered, health officials said.

I predict the number will go up quite a bit more. I see way too much people out and about everywhere. I've only been out to get groceries.

So if we would just stop the dang testing, we could still only have 3 cases and all relax.


Okay, sorry, but the point is. We have NO IDEA how many cases we had on March 3, 2020. Only 3 were known, that doesn't mean that was how many we had. How many were unknown at that time? OC Health has tested 1,585 people as of yesterday, but we don't know the timing of them. How many of the 1,585 have results pending?


That is why I think the government needs to be COMPLETELY transparent. They should show the # of tests given, the # of positive tests, the # of negative tests, the # of results pending and WHERE the positive results people live; that is city of residence, not actual location.

How do you decide how many are too many, and if you've only been to the grocery store, how do you know they are "everywhere"? I see lots of people out and about, but if they're not grocery shopping, they seem to be just going for walks, often with their dogs, or bike rides. It's not like there is anywhere other than supermarkets to go right now anyway, and walking is both healthful and carries a very low risk of disease transmission. I'd rather see people out getting fresh air and sunshine than hunkering down in dark houses.

We don't know the true numbers, just confirmed cases. Who knows how many asymptomatic or even mildly symptomatic individuals are in OC? Also, we have no idea how many more people have been tested. At any rate, as recently as 03/20, 65 people had been confirmed and the number had spiked up to 95 by March 22.

I just checked and, at the time of this writing, 125 people had tested positive in OC. That's a leap from yesterday. The majority of cases (72) are in the 18-49 year age group.

Because of my work, I needed to go into a Lowes this weekend. They were packed with people, hundreds of them shopping for things like houseplants, mulch for the yard, throw rugs and the sort. The paint dept was packed with people trying to pick out paint colors for their walls. Many had several small children with them even infants. There was no social distancing at all and management was doing nothing about it, not even limiting the number of people allowed in at one time.
It's a time bomb waiting to happen and no one does anything about it. None of this is necessary and people were acting like they were at Disneyland. The store obviously didn't care about anything but making lots of money in sales.

Weird. We live within walking distance of a Lowe's here in OC and my husband went in to get a couple of things on Saturday. He reported that it was eerily empty and there seemed to be more employees than shoppers.

Did that Lowes seem to have a high percentage of a certain race?

I can see two shopping centers from my apartment on the third floor. And it's at a medium traffic intersection. The traffic has only died down 25%. The non-essential stores are still open. Families and groups of people going out to get ice cream and stuff.


I also drive around a bit when going to the grocery store just to check things out.



I drove to Riverside this weekend to supply and check up on my parents. I told them to stay in for the next few weeks and tell me what they need and I will get it to them. Similar, but not as bad out there. Here specifically (HB) in my neighborhood, a lot of people are not going out for just necessities.

All non-essential businesses in California were ordered to be closed on Thursday. Are you saying the shops in your area are not complying?

I'm in South OC and most locations are shut down. Sporting goods, clothing, beauty supply--all closed. Salons, dance studios, fitness centers--closed. Only groceries, pharmacies and places like Target are open.

Very strange that everything is still open in Huntington Beach.
