Residentes adicionales del hogar de ancianos Sherwood Oaks hospitalizados; Salud Pública emitirá una nueva orden para aclarar el tamaño permitido para reuniones
CONDADO DE MENDOCINO, 2 de agosto, 2020 – El brote de COVID-19 en Sherwood Oaks Skilling Nursing, un hogar para ancianos en Fort Bragg, continúa empeorando, y el Departamento de Salud Pública de Mendocino nos informa hoy que un total de siete residentes están hospitalizados en el hospital Adventist Health Mendocino Coast, con 10 personas en total hospitalizadas actualmente por todo el condado. Las autoridades también anunciaron que el Oficial de Salud Pública Doohan emitirá una nueva orden de salud pública esta semana, aclarando el tamaño permitido de reuniones al aire libre y alineando las regulaciones del condado con las órdenes estatales. Específicamente, la nueva orden limitará el número de personas permitidas en las reuniones al aire libre para eventos permitidos a 100, y también esclarecerá que los eventos por entrada en auto no constituyen una reunión al aire libre y, por lo tanto, pueden ser más grandes. Actualmente, las únicas reuniones permitidas más allá de la familia inmediata, de la burbuja social o del trabajo son para asistir a misa o servicios religiosos, protestas o ceremonias culturales esenciales, y lo más importante, los funerales. Estas reuniones deben llevarse a cabo afuera, pero hasta la fecha esta orden de salud se ha prestado a cierta ambigüedad en cuanto al tamaño, según las regulaciones del condado.
