COVID Convos — Sacramento County Is Relaxing Restrictions, So There’s A Bed and a Ventilator Waiting For You

COVID Convos — Sacramento County Is Relaxing Restrictions, So There’s A Bed and a Ventilator Waiting For You

by Michael P Coleman

Sacramento County has just amended the Public Health Order that is related to coronavirus restrictions, effective at 11:59am Friday, June 12. The amended Health Order supersedes previous orders.

Businesses like bars and wineries, hotels, campgrounds, gyms, pools, family entertainment centers (including zoos, museums, movie theaters, and day camps), and tribal casinos are able to open to the public, provided they have implemented the required health and safety protocols.

Businesses MUST include a policy for face coverings, and provide face coverings to staff when six feet of social distance is not possible.

The relaxing of restrictions means just one thing to me: there’s a bed and a ventilator waiting for me if I wind up in the hospital with COVID-19. I plan to do what I can to avoid that.
