  1. Ride the waves, you’re overreacting, since we are ALL on lockdown anyway here in CA, and especially in the BAY AREA. The virus is everywhere, thus, unavoidable. To demonize those who were on the Grand for not taking a test is unfair, and quite frankly, at this point is pointless, since we’re probably all infected or will be in the next few weeks. Cruzerbouchua and Daniel A, you both speak the truth.
  2. I am not obsessing over anything. I merely replied to someone else’s post. As an aside, I am on day four of sheltering, since we were all put under a shelter in place on Monday, until it went statewide yesterday.
  3. I live in Contra Costa County, across the bay from SF, and they’ve announced The first death today In our county from Covid. I know that we had some passengers from the Diamond in our hospitals that had been transferred from Travis AFB. It’s quite possible we could have passengers from the Grand here, too, especially since Oakland/Alameda County is not too far away.
  4. Ewe choosing option 1, more FCC. we already have two booked so could apply it to one , or might book Alaska
  5. I’ve been following this in another forum and the article is in the Miami Herald. The workers have come in contact with 51,000 passengers at Terminal 2 and onecother Terminal during a period from 2/12-3/06.
  6. Watching on local stations. such a picture perfect day under sad circumstances...
  7. Just received this through my work e-mail: An important message from the County Administrator, Health Care Services Agency Director, and Interim County Health Officer As you may know, the Grand Princess cruise ship, which is carrying some passengers who have tested positive for COVID-19, has been holding off the coast of California. As soon as tomorrow, March 9, 2020, the ship will begin disembarking passengers at the Port of Oakland. We want to share with all County staff the attached message from the Governor's Office of Emergency Services and a few key points: This effort is being led by the state and federal governments, with Alameda County and the City of Oakland providing support as needed. The passengers will not be released into the general public. California residents aboard the ship will be taken to federal facilities for isolation and quarantine, while non-California residents will be transported to federal facilities in other states. The crew will be quarantined aboard the ship, which will leave the Port of Oakland as soon as passengers have disembarked. Anyone with immediate health care needs upon disembarkation may be transported to local and regional health facilities to receive care. County leadership and the Health Care Services Agency are in close contact with the California Department of Health and Human Services, as well as local and regional partners. We want to assure you that all involved entities are working to minimize the impact of the cruise ship’s docking in Oakland and our highest priority is to safeguard the health of people living and working in Alameda County. As a reminder, good hygiene and staying home when sick can help protect you and our community from COVID-19 and other germs. For updated information and resources, please visit the County’s public health website.
  8. Grand Princess will dock in Oakland tomorrow. Apologies if this has already been discussed. wonder if I’ll be able to see her sail in, since I do have a view of the Port of Oakland.
