While there has not been local transmission of the novel coronavirus, in order to lower the future risk of potential spread among people who are homeless, the County is placing handwashing stations in cities and unincorporated areas of the county, the Health and Human Services Agency announced today.

To date, 66 handwashing stations have been placed in the City of San Diego, in areas where people experiencing homelessness tend to gather. Six have been placed in Carlsbad and 14 in unincorporated areas of the county, primarily Lakeside, Spring Valley, Ramona, and Fallbrook.

“Next to sequestering those who are ill, frequent and proper handwashing is one of the best ways to prevent COVID-19,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “We’re placing stations across the region so that people who are homeless can have a place to wash their hands with soap and water.”

In addition to the handwashing stations, the County is preparing to send Homeless Outreach Teams into the streets to educate people who are homeless on how to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus and distribute supply kits that contain helpful information.

The County is increasing the public health nurse presence at the City of San Diego’s bridge shelters in order to screen people for symptoms of respiratory illness. It also will assess on an ongoing basis the need for support at other shelter locations. In addition, the county is preparing to enhance its ability to house people who might need to be quarantined.

HHSA health information specialists have been trained on how to provide COVID-19 presentations in the community for businesses, community, and faith-based organizations.

On March 3, Wooten sent letters to all city managers informing them she was installing additional handwashing stations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 locally.

The County is ready to procure, pay for and place temporary handwashing stations in areas that would benefit the most from this preventive measure.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection have reported symptoms ranging from mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms generally include:

• fever;

• cough;

• shortness of breath/difficulty breathing.

At this time, the CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days, or as long as 14 days, after exposure.

Through March 9, HHSA had placed 76 patients under investigation. Fifty-six have tested negative and 20 are pending. A total of 464 people have been placed under self-quarantine at home; 376 have finished their quarantine and 82 are currently being monitored. Six people ended up developing symptoms and became patients under investigation.

“We are monitoring these people daily and taking appropriate actions when they develop symptoms,” Wooten said. “It’s important to remember that if you did not have close contact with the patient with COVID-19, the risk of infection is still low.”

What residents can do to prepare for COVID-19

It’s important for the public to be prepared should a COVID-19 outbreak occur in San Diego County. To limit the spread of infection, you should:

• Wash your hands often to help protect you from germs.

• Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available. It should contain at least 60% alcohol.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

• If you are sick, stay home and keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then wash your hands.

• Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.

Residents should also follow these important tips to help prepare:

• Store a two-week supply of food, beverages, and water, including food for family pets. Ensure an adequate supply of prescribed and routine medications are on hand.

• Plan ways to care for those who are at greater risk for serious complications and who will take care of sick family members.

• If you have family members with increased risk of getting seriously sick, check with your medical providers about symptoms and treatment.

• Create an emergency contact list of family and friends, teachers and employers.

• Have a plan in case your school, child care, or employer closes temporarily.

• Talk with your children, family, and friends about what to do if an outbreak occurs and what each person would need.

Planning now helps you act more effectively to protect you and your family if COVID-19 does occur locally.

If you have individual questions, talk to your healthcare provider. For community resources, call 2-1-1 San Diego or visit 211sandiego.org or coronavirus-sd.com.

They did some mind-blowing works on my credit, that I think enumerating them on this public forum wouldn’t be necessary. It’s really needless having a second thought before contacting this top notch credit specialist for all kind of credit repair. After they boosted my score and brought my report back to excellent, I had to also do that of my wife and it was done in 72hours. I can comfortably recommend them ([email protected] or 1(304) -774 -5902). Contact and be bold to share your own testimony.

When I came online last year, I met a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at [email protected] and later he gave me his Whats App number which is 2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twins girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

MY REVIEWS ABOUT DR IWISA Website: www.superiorspellhome.com THE BEST WORLD WIDE ONLINE SPELLCASTER. words can not describe how happy I felt after finding your website for the past few months, I have been so depressed after losing my fiance to another woman who had a spell on him. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I’d have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr. Iwisa has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Dr. Iwisa most powerful spells and I was relieved right away within 24hours that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my fiance and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out: thanks so much dr.

I am writing this comment with tears of joy. My marriage fell apart after 6 months because my mother In-law asked my husband to divorce me and marriage the woman she betroth to him as his wife. All this drama started happening in our marriage and my husband left me and our one month baby just so he could do as his mom wants him to.

I was in tears and shattered for 6 months because I could not imagine my whole life crumbling in front of me. I could not continue with work and baby responsibilities so I quit working. Things became more difficult until my best friend advised me to meet a love doctor that fixed her marriage with a RETURN LOVER SPELL that works as fast as 12 hours after casting the spell. I concord and decided to contact this spell doctor and guess what. My husband came to my mom house with his family in less than 12 hours after casting the spell. Even his mom came back asking me for forgiveness and also to reconcile with my husband who left me. They have been coming for the past 3 days and now everyone is asking me to take him back. I am so grateful for what this love spell doctor has done for me. I am thinking of accepting his apologize and move on as family just as my mom advised.

Anyone who wants their lover back should write to love doctor on Love Spell doctor on [email protected] com

God bless you as you find your happiness through this testimony.

You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga. 

  When I met Dr.Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until when I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me with child. He did the spell and sent me the natural herbs for fertility that I will use and immediately I used this medicine, I conceived. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl. Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful girl and I am happy in my marriage. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats App number  2348167159012.

As for me, I have this herbal doctor who can help me with the prevention of this deadly disease called Corona Virus also known as CONVID19. This spell caster is reliable and also very friendly. When I first met him, I had genital herpes which plagued my life for over 2 years and when I contacted Dr. Dennis, he told me not worry that he will help me and within days, I received the herbal medicine and I was cured with it. I trust him fully with my life and I am willing to let people out here in the United States for those who believe to contact Dr. Dennis and tell him your situation and he will help you. No matter the problem, Dr. Dennis Herbal Cure is the right place for you to be. I believe he can help you through your difficulties, contact him at [email protected]          The doctors said Herpes virus do not have medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isn’t a special virus – your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body, But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the out break. Get natural herbs cure from Dr. Dennis or reach him through his email: [email protected]
