DUBLIN (CBS SF) — Santa Rita Jail operations came to a sudden stop after a outbreak of a unknown disease was reported.

Jail officials have stopped ALL  attorneys from coming to the jail and inmates are not being transported to court or from the court to go to their scheduled criminal trials, as the unknown disease runs rampant through the jail inmate population.


Two inmates were confirmed to have Influenza A with about 80 people in several jail units possibly being exposed to the unknown disease outbreak.


Those people are now being monitored. The jail has kept  the exposed individuals from going to court or meeting with their attorneys to limit contact and further infection.


This is different than in years past whereas we kind of just weather through the cold and flu season, said Alameda County Sheriff PIO Ray Kelly. This year we’re being more hyper-vigilant in the event that we were to get a coronavirus type situation. Then we would be concerned.

California tells 7K people to stay home because of coronavirus

 California Coronavirus.  California  health officials said that 7,600 people who returned to California from China may be infected with Coronaivurs, they were told to stay at home and  self monitoring in California  after visiting the coronavirus outbreak hotzone in  China


The people returned to the U.S. on or after Feb. 2 and are being asked to monitor their health, stay home and limit interactions with others, the California Department of Public Health said in a statement.

The department said that number excludes those who visited China’s Hubei province, where the disease known as COVID-19 originated. Americans who spent time there and in Hubei’s provincial capital of Wuhan have been flown home on U.S.-chartered flights and quarantined on military bases.

The U.S. is funneling travelers from China to 11 airports, including San Francisco International Airport, to ensure they get medical screening and medical care. At least 34 people in the U.S. have tested positive for the virus, including 18 who returned home from a quarantined cruise ship in Japan, the Centers for Disease Control said during a conference call with reporters Friday.

Federal authorities at the San Francisco airport are informing the travelers who return from China that they should isolate themselves at home.

The CDC said it is not tracking how many people from each U.S. state who have returned from China have been asked to isolate themselves.

Federal officials share passenger details with states, who pass that information on to local health agencies. All those returning are advised to follow CDC recommendations to prevent possible transmission, the state agency said.

There are 10 people in California who have tested positive for the virus in lab tests performed by the CDC, the California Department of Public Health said.

California’s Humboldt and Sacramento counties reported their first cases of the virus Friday, both from people who had recently traveled to China.

“I’m just frustrated and angry and upset,” said Deng, 45, who grew up in China but has been an American citizen since 2012. “I used to think I was a strong woman, but at some point I feel like I’m just fragile.”

Neither Deng nor Daisy have shown symptoms of coronavirus but they are under county-supervised “self-quarantine” after returning Feb. 4 from a trip visiting family during the Chinese New Year in Guangzhou, about 600 miles south of the outbreak in Wuhan.

Still, Deng reached her breaking point early last week when a neighbor called police, worried that the family would spread the disease. Rumors are rampant and she feels like an outcast.

“People have gone bizonkers, something between Mars and Venus,” said Deng’s ex-husband, Charles Johnston, who grew up in Saratoga. He wasn’t on the trip to China, but spent eight hours on the phone making arrangements for Deng and Daisy to get home, booking the last two seats on a flight that went through Seoul. At SFO nearly two weeks ago, he greeted his daughter with a big hug.


Although the family feels isolated and unnerved, they understand people’s fears.

“I agree to be safe,” Deng said. “You can never be too cautious.”

Just as their home quarantine is ending, another lockdown is beginning 60 miles away at Travis Air Force base in Fairfield for a new group of Americans who finally were released Sunday from the contaminated Diamond Princess cruise ship off the coast of Japan, where more than 450 passengers have been infected.

By Monday, more than 70,000 people worldwide had been infected and at least 1,772 had died, all but three in China. Since Jan. 21, 29 people in the United States — including 14 who just returned from the Diamond Princess — have tested positive.  Along with Deng and Daisy, some 30,000 travelers from China to the U.S. have been monitored by health officials since mid-January, and none of them have become ill, according to the CDC. School districts around the state have asked children who recently traveled to China to stay home for 14 days. Johnston says he believed Daisy is the only student in Napa County under restriction.

Daisy and her mother have been considered by the federal Centers for Disease Control as “medium risk” of contracting the virus because they traveled from mainland China, though far from Wuhan, and had no known high-risk exposures to sick people while there. They have no symptoms, but the CDC is recommending that they avoid public settings, limit public activities and “practice social distancing.”

Daisy’s father, who has spent most of the quarantine with her, is not considered to be exposed, according to the CDC definitions, and has no monitoring or restrictions placed on him.

That has meant that he runs errands through town, including grocery shopping, and has carted Daisy along. She stays in the car while he darts in and out.

Last week, Johnston stopped at Petco to look at kittens — Daisy wanted to give one to her friend as a birthday present. He and his daughter FaceTimed so she could choose the right kitten from the safety of the car.

Chantal Stanton, who threw the birthday party on Saturday, said she was open to Daisy attending.

“I’m a registered nurse and so if she wasn’t showing any signs, I would be fine,” she said, days before the party. “But the other parents? They probably wouldn’t want her to come and that’s awful. Everybody gets more fearful than it really is.”

In Calistoga, Johnston was told that neighbors had called police when they noticed him loading up his daughter into the car for errands.


“All of this is too much for me,” Deng said.


She’s so depressed, she said, that she hasn’t even unpacked her suitcases, and with little appetite and only one nighttime run to the Asian market when she returned from China, she has been eating mostly instant noodles.




That means the family is being monitored by health officials in both Sonoma and Napa counties — and they have been in contact at least twice a day. Mother and daughter are required to record their temperatures morning and night and fill out a symptom form daily, answering yes or no to whether they are experiencing fever, chills, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, headache, muscle aches, abdominal pain, diarrhea or vomiting.


The answers have always been no.


Johnston has canceled his daughter’s piano lessons and has been homeschooling Daisy, who is learning about the California Gold Rush and the ecosystem. The principal sent a note home with homework saying, “Hi Daisy! We miss you! See you soon.”


 Amy Deng, recently returned from a trip to China and have no symptoms of coronavirus, but as a precaution have been told they must stay away from public places.


For exercise and fresh air, Johnston has taken his daughter to the six-acre winery site, which is nearly cleared of the charred remnants of their home. About all that remains is a metal swing set, but the swings themselves burned up. She can take her dog, a maltipoo named Bubbles, for walks.

One response to “Coronavirus Santa Rita California Jail Shuts Down Jail ?”

  1. Reading the actions of these people regarding their lack of strict adherence to not making contact with others and the husband, residing with his daughter, and going about his daily business without concern for the safety of others is how this epidemic is going to continue. The fact that this virus has a 24 day incubation before signs appear should warrant concern. The fact the virus can be spread without a person showing symptoms makes any contact with those already under observation more likely to spread the virus deeper in to our population. No common sense here or the concern for others. This lack of concern and safety is going to produce violence eventually from people when they realize individuals like the above are roaming around in public places and making contact with others. This is a pandemic not a joke.

    People here are armed not like China. And that could lead to survival situations once the truth of the virus in this country is exposed.
