Amador On Fast Track to Recovery
05-10-2020

Amador County, CA –
Amador Road to Recovery - Stage 2 Acceleration

The Amador County Health Officer, in collaboration with the Emergency
Operations Center (EOC), has compiled and submitted all required documentation to the State
of California to attest to Amador’s readiness to move more quickly through Stage 2 of the State’s
Reopening Roadmap. Guidance for local businesses has been developed and posted on the
Amador Road to Recovery webpage:
https://www.amadorgov.org/services/public-health/road-to-recovery/guidance-for-businesses.
This guidance is to be implemented to provide a safe environment for both customers and
employees. The attestation allows for the following additional business operations with social
distancing and sanitizing measures in Amador:
Dine-in service in restaurants
In-store retail operations
Destination retail including swap meets
Childcare facilities
Personal services including:
Pet grooming
Tanning facilities
Landscape gardening
Outdoor museums and open space galleries
During Stage 2 gatherings are still not allowed. Amador community members should continue to take simple steps to reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses including COVID-19:
Stay home if you are sick
Regularly clean high-touch surfaces
Limit the number of others you interact with outside your household
When you go out practice social distancing, wear a face covering, and wash your hands
as soon as possible afterward

***Most Recent COVID-19 Update for Amador***

From our friends at the Amador Health Department,

COVID-19 Behavior
Amador County’s COVID-19 situation in terms of case count remains stable.

 To date we have received 553 test results.
 Total positive confirmed case count remains at 8.
 No new positive case results have occurred over the past two weeks.
 We have not experienced sustained community transmission.

Reopening Roadmap – Attestation to Readiness

Amador County meets the Epidemiologic Stability Readiness Criteria to attest to the State that we are ready to move more quickly through Stage 2 reopening on the State’s Roadmap.

The Amador Health Officer, in collaboration with the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), is working on completing the attestation paperwork required by the State.

The EOC is providing the structure for Medical Health Operational Area resource requests to maintain active engagement with stakeholders. This includes information and support to dental and health care clinicians, and assisting them with planning to safely resume operations.

The EOC is additionally supporting the Health Officer’s ability to attest to accelerated Stage 2 readiness by successfully establishing an alternative site for temporarily housing individuals affected by COVID-19. This site has the capacity to house the State requirement of at least 15% of local homeless population should a COVID-19 outbreak occur in this group. Should Amador County need
to utilize this location for COVID-19 placement, the EOC will implement the wrap around services. This procedure is separate from Project Room Key.

Amador County has already requested to schedule the call with the State that is required prior to submitting the attestation, and anticipates that will take place by Monday. The Health Officer has also requested the required letters of support from the Board of Supervisors and Sutter Amador Hospital.

Under the leadership of Mountain Valley Emergency Medical Services (MVEMSA), we now have a COVID-19 task force made up of EMT and paramedic personnel from local Fire and EMS agencies as a resource to support increased testing capabilities as well as temporary emergent staffing in our
congregate care facilities should the need arise. Lab testing capacity is another benchmark that Amador must attest to. At this time, in addition to Sutter Amador Hospital and Wellspace, testing sites available for Amador County residents include 3 OptumServe sites, two in El Dorado County and one in Lodi, as well as Project Baseline by Verily sites in Sacramento and Stockton.

Reopening Roadmap – Stage 2

As we move into Stage 2 of reopening, relaxing restrictions will not occur all-at-once. Amador County remains under the Statewide mandate. Beginning today, in addition to the businesses and activities that have been going on during Stage 1, retail stores may reopen for curbside pickup, and the manufacturing and logistics associated with the retail supply chain may resume.

The Planning for Reopening Amador Workgroup drafted and obtained feedback on local guidance documents that businesses may use to implement strategies to minimize risk of transmission of the novel coronavirus as they resume interacting with the public. The local guidance and checklist will be refined based on that feedback. The State also began publishing risk mitigation guidance by sector on their covid19.ca.gov website yesterday. Businesses are expected to implement these mitigation measures prior to reopening.

Once Amador files the attestation with the State, the County will be allowed to progress through Stage 2 more quickly, in concert with other counties in our region who will also be filing attestations. A list of businesses and activities contained in Stage 2 may be found at covid19.ca.gov under the Resilience
Roadmap tab.

As Amador County begins to reopen, Public Health will be vigilant in monitoring the COVID-19 activity in our community. By taking measures to minimize risk of transmission as we increase activity, our hope is that we can continue to keep adequate containment of COVID-19, within the capacity of our local healthcare system to manage. If we see a concerning upward trend in cases, restrictions would need to be reinstituted.

Individuals should continue measures that minimize COVID-19 risk:

 Limit the number of others you interact with outside your household.
 Cover your face to protect others.
 Maintain 6 foot physical distance.
 Minimize your time out and wash your hands as soon as possible afterward.
 Regularly clean high-touch surfaces.
 Stay home if you are sick and call ahead before seeking medical care.

Calaveras County Sheriff's Office

From our friends at the Calaveras Sheriff's Office,

"On May 8th, 2020, Calaveras County Deputies arrested Brian Dehart in San Andreas. Due to the COVID $0 bail order still in effect, Dehart was set to be booked and released back into the public. Deputies believed Dehart posed a significant danger to the public due to the multiple pending cases against him and the recent vehicle pursuit. The threat to public safety caused the deputies to file a request for bail increase (PC1269) thus, forcing Dehart to post bail prior to his release. The order to increase bail was approved by the Superior Court Judge Healy. Dehart remains in the Calaveras County Jail with a $350,000 Bail."

MEDIA RELEASE (Update)

Release Date: May 8th, 2020
Release Time: 3:00 PM
UPDATE:
Vehicle Pursuit Involving Covid-19 Released Inmate– Valley Springs

On May 8th, 2020, Calaveras County Deputies arrested Brian Dehart in San Andreas. Due to the COVID $0 bail order still in effect, Dehart was set to be booked and released back into the public. Deputies believed Dehart posed a significant danger to the public due to the multiple pending cases against him and the recent vehicle pursuit. The threat to public safety caused the deputies to file a request for bail increase (PC1269) thus, forcing Dehart to post bail prior to his release. The order to increase bail was approved by the Superior Court Judge Healy. Dehart remains in the Calaveras County Jail with a $350,000 Bail.

(Valley Springs, CA) On May 3rd, 2020, at about 5:30 PM a Calaveras County Sheriff patrol deputy initiated a vehicle enforcement stop for excessive speed (75 MPH in a 55 MPH zone) on a motorcycle, with passenger, traveling westbound on Hwy 12 east of Toyon; between the towns of San Andreas and Valley Springs. The motorcycle turned onto Double Springs Road then accelerated in an attempt to flee the traffic stop. The Deputy continued to follow the motorcycle when it stopped at the intersection of Hwy 26 and Hwy 12, near Toyon Middle School. Once stopped the suspect began yelling at the female passenger to get of the motorcycle. As the passenger was getting off the motorcycle the suspect accelerated causing her leg to become entangled. This caused the passenger to fall into the middle of the roadway. The deputy continued the pursuit as the suspect traveled west on Hwy 12 at speeds over 100 MPH. Another deputy stayed with the passenger to render medical aid. The suspect was observed passing multiple vehicles over the double yellow centerline and drove with no regard for the safety of others. Due to the driver’s extremely unsafe driving, the deputy terminated the pursuit on South Petersburg Rd near the Hogan Lake campgrounds.

Deputies were able to identify the driver as Suspect Brian Matthew Dehart, 33 years old (San Andreas, CA). Dehart is described as a white male adult, 6 feet tall, 327 pounds with black hair and brown eyes (Refer to the attached picture). He was last observed driving a dark colored motorcycle. Please contact the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department (209-754-6500) if you have any information on the whereabouts of Dehart.

Dehart was previously arrested on 11-26-2019 on charges of 10851CVC Vehicle Theft (Felony), 273A(1) PC Child Cruelty (Felony), 11378 H&S Possession of Methamphetamine for Sale (Felony), 11359 H&S Possession of Marijuana for Sale (Felony), Two charges of 29800(a) PC Possession of Firearm by Prohibited Person (Felony), 30305(a) PC Possession of Ammunition by Prohibited Person (Felony), 21310 PC Possession of Concealed Dagger (Felony), 11364 H&S Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Misdemeanor) and 12677 H&S Possession of Illegal Fireworks (Misdemeanor). Dehart also had a Felony warrant issued out of San Joaquin for 3455 PC Revocation of Supervised Release and Two Felony Warrants issued out of Tuolumne County for 1203.2(A) PC Probation Violation and 4573.6 PC Possession of Controlled Substance in Jail.

On March 27th, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued executive order authorizing the California Judicial Council to take emergency action in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Despite severe oppositions by the Law Enforcement community, including Sheriff Rick DiBasilio, The State of California’s Judicial Council subsequently issued an order requiring all California Sheriff’s Offices throughout the state to establish a $0 Bail arrestees. Rather than staying in jail until his court cases in three counties were adjudicated, Dehart was released on 4-15-2020.

Please use caution of you see Brian Matthew Dehart. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

From our friends at Calaveras Public Health,

Calaveras is well positioned to move more quickly through Stage 2. State permission to advance more quickly than other regions will remain contingent on Calaveras maintaining these gains.

This readiness will be evaluated through a County self-assessment process taking into consideration the following Readiness Parameters:

1) Epidemiology - COVID-19 prevalence must be less than 1 case/10,000population in the past 14 days with no deaths;

2) Testing capacity – 1.5/1000 residents daily test volume,

3) Ability to ensure the safety of the critical infrastructure workforce,

4) Containment capacity defined in terms of sufficient contact tracing capability on the part of the public health department to quickly identify, trace, and contain any new infections,

5) Hospital capacity – Ability of the local hospital to increase bed availability by 35% and have a detailed plan to protect the hospital workforce and patients, and

6) Ability to address vulnerable populations – examples are the availability of 2 weeks of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at the local nursing home in San Andreas, and ability to shelter 15% of the county’s homeless residents.

“We are taking the first steps towards reopening Calaveras County.”

Calaveras public health advises the public to continue to do their part.

“If we see COVID19 cases start to spread through our community this means that strict efforts will be needed again to contain the virus. A resurgence of disease activity in the county will undo everything we have built to protect the health of our community,” said Dr. Kelaita.

On Friday, May 8, 2020, the Calaveras County Health Officer rescinded the Local Public Health Order and Emergency Regulations. This latest move results from Governor Gavin Newsom’s May 7, 2020 announcement that the State will be entering Stage 2 of the re-opening plan beginning on May 8, 2020. Stage 2 authorizes some low risk business activities as long as they comply with the state-mandated conditions. “Low-risk” businesses such as clothing stores, florists, bookstores, sporting goods retailers, etc. will be allowed to re-open for curbside pick-up only starting today. These businesses will need to operate under specific adaptations to allow for increased social distancing, safeguards for their employees, and increased sanitation. While the Health Officer Order is rescinded and certain businesses are allowed to reopen in a modified way, the Stay-At-Home Order by the State of California will remain in place.

New Amador Guidelines

As the Amador County Board of Supervisors seek the governor’s approval of guidelines and procedures for local businesses to follow if they wish to open safely, Amador County Public Health learned last evening that the State has allowed for additional retail establishments to open as of today.

This includes curbside retail for bookstores, jewelry stores, toy stores, clothing stores, shoe stores, home and furnishing stores, sporting goods stores, antique stores, music stores, florists, and the supply chain supporting these businesses. Industry specific guidelines and checklists are now posted on California’s COVID-19 Roadmap website. These guidelines are being implemented to ensure a safe, clean environment for both workers and patrons.

According to Amador County Public Health officer, Dr. Rita Kerr, “We were pleased to learn of these additions late last evening, and as we move into Stage 2 of reopening, our intention is to attest as quickly as possible, and move to allowing seated dining and in-store retail with guidelines for social distancing.”

Amador County remains under the statewide order. Amador County Public Health will continue to work with the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) moving the attestation forward and to strategize on our local community moving safely through this staged process of reopening during this pandemic.
