Facts to Protect Against COVID-19 in Silicon Valley, Calif.

As Santa Clara and other Bay Area counties mandate "shelter in place" orders to help limit the spread of the pandemic Coronavirus 19 (COVID-19), it's important to know and share the facts to protect friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and loved ones. When emotions get high (as when in a panic), intelligence goes down. Take a deep breath, remain calm, read these facts, and of course, wash your hands.

 

Information About COVID-19 From CDC, CDPH, Red Cross

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), California Department of Public Health, Santa Clara County Health Department and the Red Cross all provide valuable information for ways you and your families can best protect yourselves at home, at work, and at school in the Bay Area counties of Silicon Valley. By taking these precautions and following the state’s guidelines on temporary social distancing to limit transmission, each of us can do our part to help stop the spread of the virus and protect our neighbors and fellow Californians.  

COVID-19 in California by the Numbers: 

As of March 15, 2020, 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, there are a total of 392 positive cases and six deaths in California (including one non-California resident). This total does not include passengers from the Grand Princess cruise ship currently docked in Oakland.

Ages of all confirmed positive cases:

  • Age 0-17: 6 cases
  • Age 18-64: 246 cases
  • Age 65+: 135 cases
  • Unknown: 5 cases

24 – Cases of positive tests related to federal repatriation flights

368 – Cases not related to repatriation flights

Approximately 11,700 people are self-monitoring, across 49 local health jurisdictions, after returning to the U.S. from travel.

Who is at Higher Risk for Serious Illness from COVID-19?

Early information out of China, where COVID-19 first started, shows that some people are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. This includes:

  • Older adults (65+)
  • Individuals with compromised immune systems
  • Individuals who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
    • Heart disease
    • Diabetes
    • Lung disease

If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or health condition, it is important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease, including: 

    • Isolate at home and practice social distancing.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
    • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay away from large gatherings and crowds.
    • Consider ways of getting food brought to your house through family, social, or commercial networks.
