Today I participated in an online church service by the church that I attend. The pastor and his family produce the service complete with hymns and all the other stuff that happens during a regular service if we were there. Afterwards there was fellowship with other members of the church on Zoom. While it was not the same as actually being there it is a good solution under the current situation.

As of Saturday afternoon, of the 67 residents in the county who have tested positive for the virus, nine are in the hospital — with two in intensive care, 13 people have recovered, and 45 of the infected individuals are recuperating at home. Three of the individuals with the Coronavirus are under 18 years of age, 27 are between the ages of 18 to 49 years of age, 17 are between the ages of 50 to 64 years of age, and 20 are 65 and above. As of Saturday, there have been 5,549 positive cases and 119 deaths in California.

Currently, more than 123,498 U.S. residents have tested positive for the virus, and 2,211 have died. To put this in perspective in the U.S. in 2018 609,640 people died of cancer, 36,560 people died in auto accidents, 10,511 were killed by drunk drivers, approximately 80,000 people died of the common flu, and there were 39,773 gun related deaths.
