Our response to #COVID19 must be equitable. That’s why O.C. Supervisor Doug Chaffee and I advocated for the creation of the Latino Health Equity Initiative, a partnership with researchers from the University of California, Irvine and experts at Latino Health Access to address concerns of significant disparities. We’re increasing testing sites, like the one hosted yesterday at Walker Elementary in Santa Ana, to ensure that underrepresented communities are not undertested. Thank you to all partners who made this initiative possible. Follow Latino Health Access and ochealth for more upcoming testing sites. #OCCOVID19 ... See moreSee less

Another 1000 case day and 839 in the hospital.

Here’s some information Here’s is the Metrics Met System Required: Metric #1: Decline in Total Hospitalizations For example, 14-Day Decline in net Hospitalizations OR Under 15 new Hospitalizations (3-day Average), If a city has over 15 new hospitalizations in a 3-day average then that city will not reopen businesses until that hospital is under 15 new hospitalization rates. Here’s an example, if Burbank have 0|18 that means that hospitals are over the 15 new hospitalization marks on a 3-day average. The city of Burbank can’t reopen businesses until hospitals are under 15 new hospitalizations on a 3-day average. Metric #2: Decline in Deaths Here’s an example, if a city must experience a sustained decline in the three-day rolling average of daily hospital deaths over the course of a 14-day period. Also, if the three-day rolling average of daily new hospital deaths has never exceeded 5. For example, if North Hollywood exceeded 0|6 deaths daily on a 3-day average with a 14-day period then that city can’t reopen businesses until that city is under 5 daily deaths within a 3-day average over the 14-day period. Metric #3: New Hospitalizations For example, new hospitalizations (Under 2 per 100K residents - 3 day rolling average). Here’s an example, if Santa Clarita is over on 2.88 per 100k that means that businesses can’t reopen until new hospitalizations are under two per 100k residents on a 3-day average. Metric #4: Hospital Bed Capacity First, the share of total beds available (threshold of 30%). For example, if Lancaster is under a threshold of 30% of total beds available then that city can’t reopen businesses until the threshold is over 30% of total beds available. Metric #5: ICU Bed Capacity Here’s an example, the share of ICU beds available (threshold of 30%). For example, if West Hollywood is over the threshold of 30% then that city can reopen businesses safely, but if that threshold gets below 30% then that city can’t reopen businesses safely. Metric #6: Diagnostic Testing Capacity If the County of Los Angeles phrases re-openings will depend on the ability of each city to achieve 30 tests per 1,000 people per month. The testing is critical to identifying new infections, isolating them, and tracing their contacts. If the County of Los Angeles gets aggressive testing and tracing, so that hotspots can quickly and effectively be isolated. This allows health officials to identify asymptomatic carriers, who are spreading the virus undetected, and isolate them before they infect others. Metric #7: Contact Tracing Capacity The Contact tracing helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 by rapidly interviewing positive patients; identifying their close contacts; interviewing and alerting those contacts to the risk of infection; and instructing those contacts to quarantine or isolate for 14 days, to be sure they don’t spread COVID-19 to others. Here are the four key steps: •First, labs report positive cases of COVID-19 to contact tracers on a daily basis via a state reporting system. •Contact tracers then interview positive patients to identify people they may have been in contact with over the past 14 days. Based on the results of the interview, tracers will advise the positive individual to get tested, and either isolate or quarantine themselves for the following 14 days to prevent further spread of the virus. •The contact tracer then notifies and interviews each contact of the original positive individual to alert them to their risk of infection, and instructs those contacts to quarantine or isolate for 14 days to prevent further spread. •Finally, the contact tracer monitors those contacts by text throughout the duration of their quarantine or isolation to see if the contacts are showing any symptoms. The County of Los Angeles Control Rooms The County of Los Angeles control room will monitor cities metrics during the reopening process. These city control rooms will monitor the hospitalization rate, death rate, number of new hospitalizations, hospital bed capacity, ICU bed capacity, testing and contact tracing within its county during reopening and alert the state if the city metrics no longer meet the reopening guidelines and adjust the reopening plan for that city accordingly.

Supervisor Andrew Do My friend who was exposed to someone that tested postive has been unable to get an appointment. Even at this number. He was told they are fully booked and can't help him.

Supervisor Andrew Do What are you doing to assure our county workers are safe? It’s clear that the workers are exposed to staff with covid and the county has not taking extra precautions to assure workers are safe. www.ocregister.com/2020/07/07/orange-county-employees-worry-about-spread-of-coronavirus-in-office...

Even I had no idea that the OC could excel like it has. Wow, 1,028 new Covid-19 cases reported today. Let's keep those stores, restaurants, schools, churches, beaches, and other venues where large crowds gather opened. Who knows just how far we can go with meeting and mingling!

What actions are you and the OC Board of Supervisors going to take to flatten the curve?

"Today, The ochealth will report 1,028 confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Orange County. Of these, 1,013 positive specimens were collected between June 20th and July 3rd, while another 15 were collected from prior to June 19th. Of these, 2 were from skilled nursing facilities and none were from county jails or homeless." - Michelle steele very misleading the way you present this seemingly important info

This data is inaccurate! Using the states guidelines for reporting, we would use the dates of 6/22/20 to 6/28/20 for the 7 Day Testing Positivity... There were 2,332 cases divided by 32,242 tests... multiplied by 100... that gives a 7% POSITIVITY... WHY IS YOUR POSITIVITY DOUBLE? Also, using the states guidelines for a 14 day case rate we should be using 6/19/20-7/2/20 for a total of 4,776 cases divided by 3.2 million X 100,000 which should be 149.25 CASE RATE PER 100,000. WHY IS YOUR CASE RATE HIGHLY ELEVATED FROM THE DATA?

The number of death reported today is zero. It's a good news, isn't it?

Posting this crap does no good. I demand you resign immediately.

Supervisor... can you please ask for an explanation of the massive inconsistencies between what ochealth is reporting and what the CDPH is reporting? As of today, CDPH is reporting 19,247 positive cases in OC. How did we suddenly find so many ICU beds over night? Where did they come from? How is the testing positivity percentage being calculated? NOBODY can figure it out based on the publicly available data.

We’re interested in percentages only. Numbers tell our real concern. High numbers means our political ambitions are being limited. People won’t vote for us. We really don’t care about you, we really only care about our political ambitions being fulfilled. Remember this, you are just a percentage number.

I demand your resignation immediately. Disgraceful!

Apparently they and LHI.care both booked through mid-July for testing. Please keep adding more testing capacity. Thank you.

A little late Do

Don't trust these tests or their data.

I demand your resignation immediately! You are a disgrace.

The 4th of July looks a bit different this year. There are no big parades, neighborhood block parties, gatherings with extended family, or other activities we usually enjoy.

This weekend let’s take the opportunity to spend the holiday focused on our families, and our nation. We all should reflect on what is great about America, and the work that lies ahead to ensure we live up to our ideals.

COVID-19 will continue to be a struggle for all of us. We must remember to always keep vigilant, especially this weekend. Wash your hands frequently, avoid big gatherings with people outside your household, use a cloth facial covering, and most importantly stay home if you feel sick. Don't forget, you may be sick and not know it. We must all do our part to defeat this virus, so we can enjoy next year's Independence Day, together.

May God bless you, your family, and the United States of America. Happy 4th of July!

Why are there no comments although comments are enabled? I’m glad you are sending a safety message. I wish you had defended us against the anti-mask anti-life people who spread their droplets and misinformation during the recent BOS meetings.

I demand your immediate resignation. You are not upholding the constitution as you swore to do.....

Thank you for doing such a great job. You are doing your best to deal with the anti-life must wear a mask in the bathtub people. We are enjoying our 4th of July today and hope you are, too!!
