The AstraZeneca vaccine will also be submitted for a EUA by the end of the month.

Travel Guidance
Travel guidance as of January 6, 2021 – It is recommended that non-essential travel 120 miles or more from your residence are strongly recommended to self-quarantine after 10 days once you return.

Variants of COVID-19
There is no evidence that this attributes to a more serious cause of death. The UK variant is more infectious.

The Regional Stay-At-Home Order
This order has been extended indefinitely until we reach a 15% mark for the Region. We are currently at 0%.

Pushing for increased in-person instruction with a plan to get more youth into schools
There will be a plan to release on-site testing strategy and will do away with the school waiver process.

Current Cases and Trends (as of January 13th)
  • 198,319 cases and 3,524 more than the day before (January 12th)
  • 772 current COVID-19 hospitalizations – 15% increase over the past 14 days; 7% increase over the past 7 days.
  • 418 current COVID-19 ICU admissions – 8% increase over the past 14 days; 10% increase over 7 days.
  • ICU trigger is in the red of the 13 triggers – down to 14%; below the limit of 20%.
  • Almost 1,900 deaths with 41 new deaths reported as of January 11th.
  • The 69.7 adjusted case rate – 89.8 unadjusted case rate.
  • 48 community outbreaks reported.
  • Testing positivity is at 16.2%
  • Case investigations at 41%.
  • The Flu – There are 438 total cases so far; 215 increase over last week. 0 deaths and 0 outbreaks.

Reporting Positive COVID-19 Cases
Under Section 12 of the San Diego County Health Order, If an employer becomes aware that an employee is diagnosed with COVID-19 – Promptly notify the County Department of Public Health that there is an employee that is laboratory – confirmed diagnosed with COVID-19, together with the name, date of birth, and contact information of the employee. It is recommended for employers to report all suspected COVID-19 cases to prevent outbreaks elsewhere.
Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards
Per the state’s Emergency Temporary Standards employers are required to contact CAL/OSHA if an employee contracted COVID-19 at work.

What to Expect After Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine
According to CDC guidance, COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may feel like the flu and may even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go way in a few days.

COVID-19 Vaccine & Essential Workforce
The County of San Diego is following federal and state guidelines for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine that will be done in phases. Currently only Phase 1A, healthcare personnel and long-term care staff and residents, is eligible to receive the vaccine now.

Youth Sports Guidance Under Regional Stay at Home Order
The Regional Stay at Home Order permits youth and recreational adult sports. Physical conditioning, practice, skill-building, and training that can be conducted outdoors, with 6 feet of physical distancing, are authorized regardless of county tier status. Athletes and coaches should cohort by team, and refrain from participating with more than one team. All “gatherings” with members of other household are prohibited unless expressly permitted in the Regional Stay At Home Order issued by the California Public Officer.

COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave in 2021 - The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021
Extended employer tax credits for paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave voluntarily provided to employees until March 31, 2021. However, the CAA did not extend employees’ entitlement to FFCRA leave beyond December 31,2020, meaning employers will no longer be legally required to provide such leave.

Restaurant Dining
Under the Regional Stay at Home Order, indoor and outdoor dining is not permissible. When the SoCal Region projection returns to 15% or better ICU bed capacity as a region, the State will release those counties within that region from the Regional Stay-At-Home order. When that happens for SD County, we’ll revert to Tier 1/Purple where outdoor dining is permissible.
COVID-19 Vaccine Roll Out Q&A’s
Here are some questions and answers regarding the vaccine as of January 11th:

Q. How many of San Diego County’s 3.4 million people have received a COVID-19 vaccine?
A. There is no precise tally as of January 11th. As of Friday, January 8th, 58,000 people had been immunized. That could be an underestimate due to delays in reporting. This figure does not include nursing home residents who have been vaccinated at those facilities by CVS and Walgreens. The pharmacies are leading a national vaccination effort that will involve more than 90 percent of California’s long-term care facilities. It is also unclear how many total doses of vaccine have been delivered to the county, hospitals, the military and other parties. No one is putting that data together – although that might change.

Q. Who has been getting vaccinated in San Diego County during the first three weeks of the rollout?
A. The focus is almost entirely on health care workers and staff and residents of nursing homes. They fall into the highest-priority group, known as Tier 1A. Several San Diego hospital systems have vaccinated the majority of their staff and are beginning to administer second vaccine doses, as both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a booster shot. CVS and Walgreens began administering vaccines in San Diego’s nursing homes the week of December 28th.
Q. How long will it take to vaccinate the people in that first group, and who is eligible to get immunized next?
A. The county says it will take several weeks to finish with 1A. Then it moves on to 1B, which focuses on older people and on essential workers who are more likely to be exposed to the virus – people like firefighters, police officers, grocery workers, bus drivers and teachers. That next phase will heavily focus on people 75 and older – a very vulnerable demographic. As of the morning of January 8th, 1,211 of the 1,738 people who have died of COVID-19 in San Diego County were 70 or older. The county is home to about 200,000 people who are 70 or older. This group will also focus on educators and childcare workers, as well as emergency service and food and agricultural workers. Then things move to Tier 2, which includes the nearly 275,000 people in the 5-74 age range, along with hundreds of thousands of people in the transportation, industrial, commercial, residential, critical manufacturing and sheltering facilities sectors.

Q. Can people in 1B register in advance to get the vaccine?
A. Not yet, but supposedly at some point everyone can register and know when their turn’s up, they will get notified and told where to go.

Q. Who comes after that?
A. Group 1C includes the roughly 600,000 people who are in the 50-64 age range, and people 16 to 64 who have an underlying health condition or disability that increases their chance of developing COVID-19. Vaccinations also will go to people working in the wastewater, defense, energy, chemical and hazardous materials, communications, IT, financial service and government operations sectors.

Q. Will officials prioritize who gets the vaccine first in these various sectors?
A. Yes. The CDC has advised that vaccination at each stage be prioritized for those individuals at greatest risk of exposure to the virus.

Q. When will people who don’t fit into any of these tiers – the general public get vaccinated?
A. The county says it’s likely to be in the spring, which begins on March 20.

Q. How many people in the county and in the nation have to be vaccinated to slow the spread?
A. That’s the big question, and the CDC estimates that to recover from natural infection to achieve herd immunity range from 55-82 percent. Fauci has said we might reach that point by the summer, but we really don’t know. The arrival of a new, more infectious strain of the virus certainly has not helped, as more people will need to be vaccinated to control the pandemic.
Chamber Member Dr. Ellyn Levin Shares Information on
the COVID-19 Vaccine
We are committed to providing you current information on various subjects and want to share information from Dr. Ellyn Levine at Trilogy Health. We are hopeful that the following information Dr. Levine has put together will be useful.
Information about the COVID-19 vaccine
Dear Patients and Clients of Trilogy Health:

Happy New Year! The end of this long COVID-19 nightmare is finally in sight with the approval of Moderna and Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccines last month and more vaccines are on the way.

I know many of you have questions on when and where you can obtain the Covid-19 vaccine. That information is currently unknown at this time.

The county of San Diego is awaiting the arrival of many more doses of the vaccines before it can initiate vaccination to those over 65. There are also logistics that need to be put in place before the roll out of the vaccines to the public can commence. Please consider visiting the site countynewscenter for the latest news about this vaccination effort.

Unfortunately, my office will not be receiving any doses of the vaccine.

I also wanted to provide you with as many answers as I can for the frequently asked questions related to the currently available COVID-19 vaccines:

How do we really know if COVID-19 vaccines are safe?
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carefully reviews all safety data from clinical trials and authorizes emergency vaccine use only when the expected benefits outweigh potential risks.
  • The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviews all safety data before recommending any COVID-19 vaccine for use.
  • FDA and CDC will continue to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, to make sure even very rare side effects are identified.
  • COVID-19 vaccines were tested in large clinical trials to make sure they meet safety standards. Many people were recruited to participate in these trials to see how the vaccines offer protection to people of different ages, races, and ethnicities, as well as those with different medical conditions.

Moderna and the Pfizer vaccines are both mRNA vaccines. What do we know about mRNA vaccines?
  • Like all vaccines, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines have been rigorously tested for safety before being authorized for use in the United States.
  • mRNA technology is new, but not unknown. They have been studied for more than a decade.
  • mRNA vaccines do not contain a live virus and do not carry a risk of causing disease in the vaccinated person. mRNA from the vaccine never enters the nucleus of the cell and does not affect or interact with a person’s DNA.
  • mRNA vaccines take advantage of the process that cells use to make proteins in order to trigger an immune response and build immunity to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In contrast, most vaccines use weakened or inactivated versions or components of the disease-causing pathogen to stimulate the body’s immune response to create antibodies.
  • mRNA vaccines have strands of genetic material called mRNA inside a special coating. That coating protects the mRNA from enzymes in the body that would otherwise break it down. It also helps the mRNA enter the dendritic cells and macrophages in the lymph node near the vaccination site.
  • mRNA can most easily be described as instructions for the cell on how to make a piece of the “spike protein” that is unique to SARS-CoV-2. Since only part of the protein is made, it does not do any harm to the person vaccinated but it is antigenic.
  • After the piece of the spike protein is made, the cell breaks down the mRNA strand and disposes of them using enzymes in the cell. It is important to note that the mRNA strand never enters the cell’s nucleus or affects genetic material. This information helps counter misinformation about how mRNA vaccines alter or modify someone’s genetic makeup.
  • Once displayed on the cell surface, the protein or antigen causes the immune system to begin producing antibodies and activating T-cells to fight off what it thinks is an infection. These antibodies are specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which means the immune system is primed to protect against future infection.

Is it better to get natural immunity rather than immunity from vaccines?
  • Scientists are still learning more about the virus that causes COVID-19 and it is not known whether getting COVID-19 disease will protect everyone against getting it again, or, if it does, how long that protection might last.
  • The vaccine is not a perfect fix. Patients will still need to practice other precautions like wearing a mask, social distancing, handwashing and other hygiene measures until public health officials say otherwise.
  • We don’t know how long protection lasts for those who get infected or those who are vaccinated. What we do know is that COVID-19 has caused very serious illness and death for a lot of people. If you get COVID-19, you also risk giving it to loved ones who may get very sick. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer choice.

What are the known adverse reactions?
  • Most people do not have serious problems after being vaccinated.
  • Adverse reactions are usually mild to moderate in intensity and resolve within a few days. The most common adverse reactions reported after vaccination in clinical studies included:
  • Pain at injection site (92.0%)
  • Fatigue (70.0%)
  • Headache (64.7%)
  • Muscle pain (51.5%)
  • Joint pain (46.4%)
  • Chills (45.4%)
  • Nausea/vomiting (23.0%)
  • Axillary swelling and tenderness of the vaccination arm (19.8%)
  • Fever (15.5%)
  • Injection site swelling (14.7%)
  • Injection site redness (10.0%)
  • Increased risk of temporary facial or lip swelling at the site of one's dermal filler injections has been noticed predominantly in Moderna vaccine recipients. (unknown prevalence)
  • Adverse reactions typically go away on their own within a week.
  • The vaccine cannot give someone COVID-19.
  • Often adverse reactions are a sign that the immune system is working and building up protection to disease.

How do we know that these vaccines are safe when they are so new? Couldn’t they cause problems that we don’t know about yet? What about long-term problems?
  • The FDA and CDC are continuing to monitor safety, to make sure even long-term side effects are identified.
  • COVID-19 vaccines will be continuously monitored for safety after authorization, and ACIP will take action to address any safety problems detected.
  • COVID-19 vaccines are being tested in large clinical trials to assess their safety. However, it does take time, and more people getting vaccinated before we learn about very rare or long-term side effects. That is why safety monitoring will continue. CDC has an independent group of experts that reviews all the safety data as it comes in and provides regular safety updates. If a safety issue is detected, immediate action will take place to determine if the issue is related to the COVID-19 vaccine and determine the best course of action.

How many doses are needed and why?
  • Nearly all COVID-19 vaccines being studied in the United States require two shots. The first shot starts building protection, but everyone has to come back a few weeks later for the second one to get the most protection the vaccine can offer.
  • Shots are given several weeks apart. The first shot primes the immune system, helping it recognize the virus, and the second shot strengthens the immune response.

Lastly, I'm proud to announce that Monica, Alyssa and I were able to receive our first dose of the vaccine to remain even safer for you, ourselves and our loved ones. Soon all of you will also have an opportunity to receive this vaccination in hopes we can finally put an end to this devastating pandemic.

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where perpetrators profit from the sexual exploitation and/or forced labor of men, women and children. It is a violation of basic human rights, and it is also a crime as defined by U.S. federal law and California state law.

Sex trafficking is the exploitation of a person by means including coercion or deceit to engage in commercial sexual activity, prostitution, exotic dancing, or pornography. (When the victim is a minor under the age of 18 years old, sex trafficking does not require force or coercion. Minors cannot legally consent to sexual activity)
