Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 05/18/2021

by

The Calaveras Board of Supervisors meetings are much more important than you may realize.  One of our members, Janet, has generously been taking detailed notes which gives you a chance to follow along.

This link is from the 5/18/21 meeting.  If you’d like to see the actual meeting, a video is available through the County’s website.  If you’d like to download Janet’s notes, they can be found here:Calaveras County BoS 20210518 meeting notes

We’ve mainly included the detailed notes here from general interest items like the Public Health Updates.  We list all items on the agenda but often only include the initial paragraph from Janet’s notes.  I refer you to Janet’s notes and the video for additional information.  Watching the whole video will give you complete information and an appreciation for Janet’s willingness to take these extensive notes.

Pubic meeting called to order at 9:05 a.m.

Staff Announcements

• None

Public Health Update

1. Public Health Services (ID # 6057) Receive an update presentation from staff on
COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).

• Connie Rodriquez – Deputy Director – 42,000 tests completed, 2,143 positive, 8 active, 2,080 recovered, 0 hospitalizations, 55 deaths. As of May 16th – 33% fully vaccinated, 43% eligible received one vaccine, includes 16+ and older; will change when 12+ get vaccinated. Remain in the orange tier.
• Continue to offer in-home vaccines – will be J&J for those 18+. Call 209.419.7314 if interested. Pfizer approved for 12 to 16-year-olds. Those will require a parent or guardian present in order to be vaccinated. Register for vaccines at MyTurn or call 833.422.4255. Vaccine registration continues to decline and no shows continue to increase.
• This week ends the shots at Frogtown. Will begin at targeted areas in the county. May 23 is the last day at Mark Twain Hospital. Thanked them for all their support.
• Valley Springs Health & Wellness will start their vaccine clinics. Today at Frogtown – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Veterans Hall Valley Springs – 9 a.m. to noon; Frogtown 9 am. To 4 p.m.; Valley Springs Health & Wellness; Saturday Mark Twain and Valley Springs. Can go to MyTurn.ca.gov and all dates and times are listed. Vaccines are also available at CVS and RiteAide.
• People can choose what clinics they want to go to and what shot they would prefer with the exception of the home shot visits – those are J&J so there is only one visit. They have to bring a nurse, ambulance and have to schedule out visits so they can get the shots out timely and efficiently.
• Doug Archer – Mark Twain Hospital
• This Saturday will be the final vaccine clinic but remain ready to help out. If demand is there they can do spot clinics.
• Appreciates partnership with public health. Happy with relationship and will build on it.
Dr. Rene Ramirez – Calaveras County Health Officer
• The light is at the end of the tunnel. The more people we can get vaccinated the quicker we can get back to our normal life.
• Reservations regarding younger children – the science behind the vaccine is what is driving it; your body
activates its own response and your body is properly equipped to fight off the virus. Will be taking his son to get his shot in July when he turns 12. His son wants to gets the shot. If any reservation, speak with your pediatrician.
• Supervisor Garamendi – appreciates all the hard work at Frogtown and appreciates the county has given people who want the vaccine the availability to get it.
Public Comments – None
