From Chedas in Point Reyes: "As automotive repair is an "essential business" we hope to remain open for our usual hours during the duration of the shelter in place. We will clean/disinfect your vehicle when we receive it and again when we are done working on it.

You may drop off/pick up your car outside, pay over the phone with a credit card - all without having to come into the garage. If you feel comfortable coming into the garage, we'll be observing the 6 foot social distance guidelines.

Please call Cheda's Garage at 415.663.1227 to schedule an oil change, brake inspection, tire rotation, diagnostic etc....and feel free to pass this information along to any other local friends.

Thanks,
Hilary Cheda"

Please support our local businesses so they're still here when this is all over. I had my car worked on this week at Chedas, it was a very safe and expedient process.
Another long week that still isn't over. Thank you to everyone on the frontlines who are putting their lives on the line for us. Please support your local businesses and restaurants if you can. Stay safe. Stay at home. Extremely cute badger photo by renowned local photographer Carlos Porrata.

"**Near Drowning Stinson Beach**
This evening CHP H-30 responded with Stinson Beach Fire and Marin County Fire Department to a report of a drowning at Stinson Beach. Fire arrived at the scene as the patient was pulled from the water. The 20 year old male was unresponsive at the scene.

H-30 landed on the beach and transported the patient to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where the patient is currently undergoing treatment.

**We are happy to report that due to a quick response by Stinson Beach Fire and rapid transport by helicopter, the patient was alert and talking when our crew left John Muir.**"

From Marin County Sheriff's Office - "Today, Marin County Public Health issued a superseding, extended and revised Public Health Order and revised Park Closure Order that is in effect until 11:59 p.m. on May 3, 2020. Some of the highlights from the new park closure order include, but are not limited to:

All agencies and jurisdictions operating public outdoor recreation areas, including but not limited to parks, campgrounds, and open spaces (hereinafter, “Park Facilities”), within Marin County (the “County”) are hereby directed to cease all operations and services related to facilitating the public’s motorized access to all Park Facilities located within the County. This applies to all Park Facilities within the County, regardless of ownership.

Individuals may continue to responsibly access those Park Facilities that are local to their residences and readily accessible by foot, bicycle or other non-motorized means for the purpose of engaging in Essential Activities as defined in the March 31 Order, including outdoor exercise.

"California Governor Gavin Newsom is making an urgent appeal for anyone with health care experience to join the coronavirus fight. He has launched the California Health Corps, inviting medical retirees, part-timers and students to apply.

"If you're a nursing school student, a medical school student, we need you," said Newsom. "If you have just retired within the past five years, we need you."

The goal is to hire nearly 40,000 new personnel, from managers to paramedics, dentists to psychologists. It will require the relaxation of some licensing protocols and expand the scope of what some providers can do.

"We'll get you up and running and get you out the door so you can support the needs of the people of California," Newsom said at a Monday news conference."
