Santa Clara County recorded 512 COVID-19 cases in the 24-hour period before Thanksgiving, and wasted no time in preventing businesses from violating health orders.
As of Nov. 27, there were 32,985 COVID-19 cases and 545 deaths in Santa Clara County. In addition, 222 people have been hospitalized with the virus. Of these, 68 are in intensive care units and 193 of 624 ventilators are in use.
“We are really very concerned,” said Dr. Mardi Fennership, Covit-19 testing officer. “All the measurements that have been done well in previous months have risen so steeply.”
In July, amid a previous uprising, 385 cases were registered in a single day.
“Unfortunately we don’t want to be where we see so many different kinds of challenges in our hospitals that some communities in the United States and around the world have to deal with,” said County Consultant James Williams.
Officers Thanks Weekend imposed immediate fines on businesses For violating the health order. The county removed and promised to dismantle its time limit for businesses to fix issues before fines were imposed. It did.
As of noon on Nov. 27, County 76 had imposed fines on local businesses. Primary violations failed to submit and post amended rules regarding social distance.
A district spokesman said businesses would have 30 days to pay the fine and business compliance officials would never ask for an advance. Officers will wear yellow clothes and create identity.
Meanwhile, the county plans to offer a meet-and-greet Govt-19 test next week in Los Cados, Mountain View, Cupertino, Campbell and Palo Alto, while also providing flu shots.
Walk-up testing is available next week in San Jose and Kilroy, but fever scenes will only be available at the Santa Clara County Exhibition Grounds in San Jose.
These fairgrounds will also be the only test site open on Thanksgiving weekend on November 29th.
Fenshorship insisted that individuals without symptoms of COVID-19 should be tested, especially if they were in close contact with family members and co-workers.
“New research shows that most symptoms are caused by people who do not have symptoms, and they do not know that family, co – workers and anyone they come in contact with can spread the disease,” Fennership said. “They need to know they have the virus so they can isolate and break the chain, even if they don’t feel sick.”
