Public health leaders in Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties say their departments will no longer recommend isolation or quarantine for people exposed to someone with COVID-19, as they now will focus on reducing the risk to populations at the greatest risk of dying from the respiratory illness.

In an interview Monday, Dr. Peter Beilenson, head of Sacramento County’s Department of Health Services, said public health officials quarantined the sick and those who came into close contact with them as a way to slow spread of the disease, but as the number of cases increase statewide, public health has to acknowledge that those measures aren’t enough.

“Once you get a certain number of cases, it’s hard to continue to contact-trace back the way you tried originally,” Beilenson said, “so we move to mitigation, which is basically trying to mitigate the risk to those who are most at risk: the elderly and those with chronic underlying conditions.”

This is insane. If "those measures aren't enough" they should ADD more measures. But no, instead they won't quarantine people anymore?

What will be next, the socialist policy in Italy to not treat, and let the "elderly die"?

Italy gave up on older patients. Prioritize young people only.

But you can be sure that the left will continue trying to blame all of this on President Trump, meanwhile claiming stating the fact that COVID-19 started in Wuhan China makes you a "racist..."

It looks like we're way beyond containment.. That is discouraging.
There's a YOLO joke in there somewhere..

Sounds like they want it to spread. Hell, If you got it, stay your ass at home until it is gone. If you have been exposed to it, stay your ass at home until you can be cleared. How hard is that? Is that too much to ask?

Would be nice if we had the testing capability to actually find out if someone has it or not right?

Why do you feel that it is way beyond containment ?

Since 99% of the cases in the USA are classified as "mild", focusing on protecting those who are "at risk" is the wise choice.

Well, back on march 9th there were 605 confirmed cases and 22 confirmed dead.

Cases of COVID-19 in the U.S.

That's a 3.63% death rate. If you extrapolate that and just let's say 100 million Americans get COVID-19, that would mean 3,630,000 dead Americans. That is not mild.

To reduce the death toll we should continue to quarantine people. Allowing it to just run rampage is a recipe for disaster.

I think the decision has more to do with keeping the hospitals and clinics well staffed, So they can handle more urgent matters.

Such policies can also reduce the toll on health care providers and first responders who might otherwise be compelled to self-quarantine if they have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with the coronavirus. Without those medical workers on the front lines, the broader response could be hobbled
Coronavirus: Sacramento County Gives Up On Automatic 14-Day Quarantines

I feel for the nurses and other health care providers, it’s kinda like their front line. They need as much help as they can.
Like being drafted into a war.

I completely agree with you. I think authorities are playing a dangerous game of chicken by trying to mitigate the economic fallout that quarantines would cause.

I am guessing they are terrified.

They are moving from proactive to reactive

Italy was reactive. Look at the results

They got caught with their pants down with the lack of test kits and an overall understanding of the severity of the situation..

Governments can even be subject to the phenomena of normalcy bias..

Hospitals will be overrun with these cases if there is no quarantine. If that policy is even applied in hospitals it would be even worse. We don't have, no one does, enough kits to test everyone for COVID-19.

Without a quarantine protocol you can assure that hospitals will be overrun with COVID-19 virus. Anyone going to hospitals in these cities, counties, will be infected. The higher the infection rate, the more death that will occur from this coronavirus.

Even the best of them, get drawn into the doom porn hype.

Testing, testing, testing...... This is a test from your local programming system........ Just to see how compliant you are — when we pose any kind of threat to you.

The next one will be a real threat. Now that they know the populace is as gullible as a 2 year old.

4,600 deaths in 4 months. Of population of almost 8,000,000,000. You do the math...

Didn't China create an app where when diagnosed the patients put their location and general work pattern that alerted others to where they had been? And who they had been in contact with?

So I get the authorities can't track everyone's history now but surely you owe it to your friends and family to give them the heads-up. something like....
Sorry folks, I have had a positive result from a convid-19 test.
Please be aware and look for signs, I will be self-isolating for the foreseeable future..
FYI -- I had symptoms from x date... felt ... not sure where/who I caught it from.

Please stay safe and may your god be with us all.


It's down to us individuals to take responsibilities. Not may of us are out to get anyone else on purpose.

With the number of confirmed cases and the probability of a 20 to 40 day incubation period where you are infectious long before the symptoms appear it was just not possible to contain it long term.

There is probably a number of walking dead in the US right now.

You're a bit confusing on this matter. Devils advocate usually sticks to one side of the fence?

Helping those who are who are at risk, while allowing those just spreading it to carry on business as usual, spreading it further, doesn't seem such a wise choice to me.

Next we will have people with it, coughing and spluttering, with everyone going "I bet they're just taking the piss, besides, it's just a flu." and .. well, I avoid people anyway. So even if I get it, I won't be a party to this madness.

I wasn't aware that 8,000,000,000 people were all infected to make such a comparison.

Do the maths - What are the numbers, again?

Am I the only one that wants to just get it and get it over with...lol

I know they are saying further mutated viruses can reinfect like the common cold, but I just want to get past this one that is going around.

China, and countries like Iran, are not reporting real numbers of people dead, or infected. Activists in China whom have filmed how hospitals have been overrun with, or the death toll, of people with the virus have been arrested.

BTW, all of China hasn't been infected yet... Only sections of China have, and even with the enforced quarantine made in China a lot of people have been infected, and many have died as well.

IF China, and WHO, are telling the truth, which I doubt, there is at least a 3.4% death toll from COVID-19. If 8,000,000,000 people were infected, there would have been 272,000,000 people dead...

That claim you just made is disingenuous at the least, if not an outright lie.

If it does get into the lungs, it will be better for the quality of your treatment if you have access to oxygen before the hospitals are overwhelmed..
