In this together

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:00 am

This doesn’t necessarily change anything for the Bay Area since we’ve been sheltering-in-place in the Bay Area since Tuesday.

Hopefully this will help all of California return to normal more quickly. But if people are still treating this like a huge vacation and congregating in public, this is just going to last longer for everyone.

Also the City of Alameda is updating this spreadsheet of restaurants open for delivery or pickup right now. If you see an establishment you love on the list (and can afford it) think about picking up some lunch/dinner or getting it delivered. If we don’t support our small local businesses they may not be able to survive this.


  1. • Richard Burr, R-N.C.

    • Kelly Loeffler, R-Georgia

    • James Inhofe, R-Oklahoma

    • Dianne Feinstein, D-California

    SOLD major holdings as early as January as senators began to get NON-PUBLIC information about the growing coronavirus outbreak.

    Apparently not everyone is in it together. Feinstein avoided a 25% drop in value after selling shares worth $6 M.

    Nothing to see here, move along…

    P.S. I) watched Gov’s rambling speech, full of bureaucrat jargon. The whole thing could have been said in 3 minutes. Stay home. Still no mention of the homeless policies during this crisis. Son reported long line at gun store in Dublin yesterday as people stock up.

    • Amen, that dude’s by far the dorkiest Gov since Hiram Johnson.

  2. I just sent an email to the address on the city website, but FYI Trabocco is no longer offering take-out: “We feel that it is not right to potentially risk our health, our employee’s [sic] health, and the health of our patrons,” according to their statement on Facebook. I have ordered a weekend’s worth of food from Pappo that I’m picking up this afternoon — I hope most Alameda restaurants are able to stay safe AND keep offering take-out to the community.

  3. Does anyone have an update on testing? It still seems near on impossible to get, even Kaiser – only one experimental drive through in SF. Without data we are running blind.

    This seems to be provoking an even faster onslaught of a digital future where we spend most of our lives on a computer, and again people not online or digitally enabled are going to get left out. Are there any suggestions about how we can help stave this off and use this as an opportunity to do something about that rather than feel like helpless victims? For example what about some sort of low tech community gathering – like say a list of community voice mail boxes to drop off/pick-up messages?

    • Agreed, we are running blind without data. date is vital right now. Another critical set of data needed right now are remaining hospital beds & ventilators and their locations.

        • Why, knowing the number of beds or vents doesn’t change anything.

        • It will be extremely important data in the event of regional triage
