A man has died of the coronavirus in Roseville California where my father was raised. I formed a FB.
Here is Grandpa Joe my step-grandfather who worked in the rail switch driving a locomotive . He has the engineer cap to go with those overalls. He built that house with a garage with a pit. He was down there working on his 1948 Studebaker. He could roll a cigarette with one hand. We would go to the smoke room in back of the kitchen. Joe would be appalled. All this bull about family values, and making America Great Again! Joe made America Great – with his bare hands! They don’t make men like Joe no more.
Greg Presco What do Americans really treasure? What are our National Treasures? Joe and Melba….Sally, Dick, and Jane! Throwing potatoes in the pile of burning leaves. All the butter you can eat! In the summer, watermelon outside under Joe’s cherry tree he planted. He walked behind his parents covered wagon, along the Oregon Trail. “I walked the whole way! My people are in Virginia.” In his garbage was every tool you would ever need. Up in the rafters, is his grandfather’s plow!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Princess Cruises are working to notify passengers of their possible exposure. Placer County health officials are asking any locals who were passengers to self-quarantine out of an abundance of caution.
Health officials say the person had minimal community exposure after returning from the cruise and going to the hospital.
The person arrived at Kaiser Permanente Roseville on Feb. 27 and was in isolation after testing positive.
Sisson said the patient died Wednesday morning.
Ten health care workers and five emergency responders who were exposed to the patient are now in quarantine, officials said.
Those who are quarantined do not have symptoms but are being monitored.
“Some of these employees did have contact with the public after being exposed to the confirmed case, but because they had no symptoms during that time and remain without symptoms, the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to the public based on exposure to these asymptomatic workers is very low, if any,” Sisson said.
