I was disappointed the camera equipment I expected today did not arrive. It appears that it will be here tomorrow. The only place I went today is to take Penny for here run. I got an email today for Penny’s vet, Dr. Dorian of Central Coast Veterinarian Services, showing one of the ways this epidemic is impacting the way things are done. He is a mobile vet who makes house calls rather than having you come into a clinic. He announced today that instead of using his truck and coming into your house to treat your pet he now has a van that he will use to treat pets rather than coming inside.
There maybe some light at the end of the tunnel about the stay at home order. County Administrator Wade Horton announced the county is considering a phased end to shelter at home rules during Monday’s press briefing. Before moving forward, the county wants to make sure the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to remain flat or to decrease. Since the first case reported in the county on March 8, there has been an average of three new cases a day. County Health Officer Penny Borenstein said, “In addition, the county will need to follow the state’s plan for reopening the economy.”
The county is reporting three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the county’s total to 117 as of April 13. Two patients are hospitalized, those two are in the ICU. Nineteen people are recovering at home and health officials say 95 have fully recovered from the illness. One person has died of COVID-19 in the county.
