The Nooner for Saturday, March 27, 2021, presented by SYASL Partners
- -data dive
-tiers for fears
- Cakeday and new classifieds
Happy Saturday! Happy Pesach to our Jewish readers observing Passover.
After hearing about the death of children's books author Beverly Cleary at age 104 yesterday, I looked into her. She was born in McMinnville, Oregon in 1916. Nearly four years later, my grandmother was born there and there's still a farm in the family in McMinnville. While Yamhill County is now mostly a wine-producing region, a second cousin is still working the land for other crops.
COVID-19, cakeday, and classifieds after the jump...
COVID-19: California reported an additional 243 deaths yesterday for a total of 58,172 since the pandemic began.
-data dive: California's 7-day positivity rate is now 1.9%, still far below the 7.1% peak amidst mass testing on December 30.
-vaccines: Remember that in many cases, vaccines are being reserved for second doses (of Moderna and Pfizer). The following data, from the daily CDPH press release, may be delayed by reporting.
- vaccine doses administered in California: 15,979,099 (7-day change: +2,597,053)
- vaccine doses delivered to administering entities in California: 20,244,790 (7-day change: +3,031,640)
-variants: The highly transmissible "Brazil variant" has now been found in both San Diego and the Bay Area through a very small sample of DNA sampling.
-tiers for fears: As a reminder, any county must remain at a tier for three weeks before progressing to a less-restrictive tier, even if the metrics continue to improve. Lots of the changes yesterday, and here's where the counties stand.
- 8 counties in the Purple (widespread) Tier (6.3% of population): Fresno, Glenn, Inyo, Kings, Madera, Merced, San Joaquin, and Yuba
- 39 counties in the Red (substantial) Tier (83.2% of population): Alameda, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Contra Costa, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Imperial, Kern, Lake, Los Angeles, Mendocino, Modoc, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Tulare, Tuolumne, and Ventura
- 9 counties in Orange (moderate) Tier (10.5% of population): Lassen, Marin, Mariposa, Plumas, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Trinity, and Yolo
- 2 counties in Yellow (minimal) Tier (0.0% of population): Alpine and Sierra.
-school daze: With schools planning to return to in-person instruction, the Chron's Jill Tucker looks at the challenges faced by the schools.
[The Oakland Unified] district and union agreement gave teachers the option of returning in late March, but didn’t require it. Officials hoped an $800 stipend would lure enough back to reopen schools starting with preschool through second grade, more than two weeks before all schools reopen to eligible students on April 19.
In many schools, it didn’t work. Too many teachers opted out and more than a dozen schools will not reopen as planned Tuesday, with another 30 only partially reopening.
Meanwhile, San Francisco is grappling with its own reopening challenges. Officials are worried they won’t have enough teachers to cover all classrooms and some families still don’t know if their children will be heading back two or five days a week.
In both districts, many families still are unsure if or when their children’s teachers will return to classrooms, whether transportation will be available and if after-school programs will be running.
This was not the way school reopening is supposed to go, families said.
