Confirmed COVID Day 1?

With the wife on quarantine with me, we have been cleaning all day long. This morning she had me all Kaiser and ask for my results. They gave me the usual run around I was expecting, but at least they replied. Around 3:30pm I checked KP.org as I have been periodically every day and I […]

Turning point

Today was busy. 6 calls. Cmed was non-stop. The people want the county reopened. I have seen birthday partys and gatherings with no one wearing any type of masks. COVID will spread like wildfire. The political climate will further divide until its boiling point. In my area, there has been a sharp increase in gun […]
