Will Guv Nuisance Force Americans From 49 States to be Quarantined for Two Weeks?

Hawaii and New York have been economically devastated.  They imposed a two week quarantine on people from most of the United States before they could be in general population in their cities.  Hotels, tourism, attractions, all economically destroyed.  Jobs lost—not to return.

Now, the government of California, not satisfied with killing churches, education and millions of jobs—want to destroy want is left—burn the State to the ground.  If imposed, expect a surge of Californians moving out of the concentration camp set up by Newsom.

““Increased cases are adding pressure on our hospital systems and threatening the lives of seniors, essential workers and vulnerable Californians. Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, and we must all collectively increase our efforts at this time to keep the virus at bay and save lives,” Newsom said. 

UC Irvine epidemiologist Sanghyuk Shin said the second wave could be worse than the Summer wave. 

“Especially as we head into the Fall and Winter, I think we can expect high risk. It’s troubling because clearly the infection is spreading and clearly cases and hospitalizations and ICU rates are escalating quite rapidly across the U.S. and in Orange County as well. It’s very troubling,” Shin said in a Wednesday phone interview. 

The advisory, which is also adopted by Washington and Oregon, doesn’t apply for essential workers traveling to the state. 

State Officials Urge Two-Week Travel Quarantine as Second Coronavirus Wave Hits

By Spencer Custodio, Voice of OC,  11/13/20 

As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations continue to steadily increase in Orange County, along with California, state public health officials are urging  two-week quarantine for people who travel to the state. 

“California just surpassed a sobering threshold – one million COVID-19 cases – with no signs of the virus slowing down,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a Friday morning news release. 

Local epidemiologists and state public health officials have been cautiously watching hospitalizations rise over the past two weeks, urging people to avoid private gatherings like parties and dinners. 

“Increased cases are adding pressure on our hospital systems and threatening the lives of seniors, essential workers and vulnerable Californians. Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, and we must all collectively increase our efforts at this time to keep the virus at bay and save lives,” Newsom said. 

UC Irvine epidemiologist Sanghyuk Shin said the second wave could be worse than the Summer wave. 

“Especially as we head into the Fall and Winter, I think we can expect high risk. It’s troubling because clearly the infection is spreading and clearly cases and hospitalizations and ICU rates are escalating quite rapidly across the U.S. and in Orange County as well. It’s very troubling,” Shin said in a Wednesday phone interview. 

The advisory, which is also adopted by Washington and Oregon, doesn’t apply for essential workers traveling to the state. 

“Persons arriving in California from other states or countries, including returning California residents, should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. These persons should limit their interactions to their immediate household. This recommendation does not apply to individuals who cross state or country borders for essential travel,” reads the advisory.

It also urges Californians to limit their travel out of state. 

“Californians are encouraged to stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel to other states or countries. Avoiding travel can reduce the risk of virus transmission and bringing the virus back to California.” 

Some parents have been driving their children to Airizona and Nevada to play youth sports games because California public health officials have yet to issue guidelines that allow for games. Instead, kids can only practice and have to stay 6-feet away from each other. 

Meanwhile, OC Supervisor Lisa Bartlett – who also serves as president of the state’s Association of Counties –  said the county’s increasing caseload is likely to prompt a move back to the most restrictive tier, the Purple Tier as early as Tuesday. 

“If you have been tracking the Covid numbers for OC our numbers have been increasing in several of the metrics like case count per 100,000.  For several months now Orange County has been able to maintain its Red Tier status but that could change next Tuesday,” Bartlett said Friday. 

All of Orange County’s neighboring counties are in the Purple Tier, with San Diego moving back to this past Tuesday. 

A move back to purple means restaurants, movie theaters, churches and gyms would have to move their operations outside, essentially closing many of them down. It would also further restrict the number of people allowed inside retailers and malls. 

Dr. Mark Ghaly, secretary of the state’s Health and Human Services Agency, is expected to hold a noon news conference about the state’s worsening virus situation. 

“There will be a Covid travel advisory issued from the state sometime today and I suggest tuning in as this may affect the holiday travel plans for our residents,” Bartlett said.

She also said OC’s hospitals still have room for patients.

“OC still has significant hospital capacity, meaning that our healthcare system is NOT being overwhelmed,” Bartlett said.

Orange County CEO Frank Kim is concerned about new cases from residents who travel outside of OC. 

“Social gatherings are the greatest activity of risk.  Particularly if people are traveling to other jurisdiction and gathering with new cohorts,” Kim said. 

 “We have seen a significant increase in new cases in Southern California, if we take precautions and follow the guidance from local and state health officials, we will reduce the significance of current trend,” he said.

    I just ignore what “they” say. No trust, no credibility. I do as I please. I just wish I could leave Nazi Newsom’s Democratic People’s Republic of Kalifornia for good, today.

  2. William Hicks says

    THE QUESTION SHOULD BE……Will it be only 4-6 weeks? Remember we were only supposed to be in lockdown for two weeks in March 2020 so the hospitals would not be overwhelmed.

  3. Raspberry!

  4. There’s ~1-2% of mortality risk from “The Bug.” If you feel lucky, do as you like.

    I can only wish that your friends, relatives, and casual acquaintances will not contract the infection and spread it in the community.

    Allegiance to a crowd, versus using individual common sense, is typical of what political neuroscientists say characterizes Trump Supporters. Something in the amygdala drives messianic pursuit at public expense.

    No one in Crapafornia gives a damn what gov nuisance says.
    So what makes anyone think a person from another state gives a crap what he says?
    Pansy Gavin has lost all credibility in everything he does.
    No news coverage, left or right, red or blue, bothers to report his idiocy dictatorship.
