Looks like Santa Clara County is doing well with 1,566 cases out of a population of 1,937,000. With a percentage of .08 that is great. 164 of those cases are in subacute care facility. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County is not reporting or following up their reporting of recovery cases. Even if we add another 10,000 positives we are under a percentage.

Keep washing those hands.

Thirty cases in Mountain View out of a population of 84,000 (.03) is great for not even one percent. The social distancing is working and if everyone can wash their hands and not touch their face we will win this. Good Job Mountain View.

Keep Washing those hands.

Good job Mountain View...Keep it up.

Even better is the hospitals have the quick reference COVID-19 test kits so they can tell those that are coming with symptoms that they are not positive and reducing the bed space for those truly in need.

The hospital staff, fire fighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians are the ones that we need to worry about and thank and thank some more. They understand how you catch this by being in close proximity to a positive patient. They been doing this for years with proper safety gear and procedures. They know that proper decontamination and cleaning they can continue you and will work on till they are symptomatic. They are not worry about you walking by them. They only want you to wear a cloth over your face in the event you cough or sneeze on them or spray those "particulates" that care viruses (plural) on high touch areas. SO you can stop wearing their mask they need incorrectly and remember your physics and math classes.

Again, wash those hands and don't touch your face.
