The same between these crossings will have to be constructed new construction right And that's why the price is so high. And so they I only recommend one. You don't recommend all of them, and only one of them will probably take place. The one that's the underpass. That's the most popular by the survey. So they did a big survey and they asked a lot of people what they think. And by far most people wanted an underpass. And for those of you who've been to the dunes. Or haven't been to the dunes.

And While a variety of sources would like this to happen is just Not feasibly. It's just too expensive, so they I don't think they're going to. They're not recommending this one.

But they really don't like cars crossing right where the train goes that if somebody Besides not to stop And the train's at the right place. You know, there could be a could be a problem.

So we feel that the state of times may forget about us or things like that. You know, putting San Diego right back up there and kind of raising our hand and saying, Hey, what about us?

On testing, depending on where you live in California. It may be harder to get a cove in 19 tests than it was just a few weeks ago. Cap radio Sammy Kaye Ola looks at why this is happening and what can be done. Nicole Steph Cho ran an essential Aaron last month taking her sick people mix Charlie to the vet. A few days later, she got an email from the vet's office, saying that she might have been exposed to Cove it at the appointment. We would have both liked to have been tested just out of precaution, Steph goes referring to herself. A wife, who is immune compromised due to a heart condition. But when they tried to get screened through CBS project baseline and their own doctors, they were turned away. Michelle Gibbons with the county Health Executives Association of California, says testing demand is high right now, if you're in a jurisdiction where you have ah, high number of cases, I think, folks we're goingto want or be eager to get testing, but some county still don't have enough lab space or test kits or funding to keep up to the extent that they're supply chain issues. That is something that we're going to need state In the statement, even if federal hoped to help support that Sacramento had to close five of its testing sites because they're running out of the fluid needed to transport samples to the lab. Because of increased demand. Some counties have had to limit who they test and deal with longer wait times for results. Steph co. Says that when she and her wife couldn't get tested, they decided to self quarantine for a while, just to be safe. This was the first time I've ever throughout this whole ordeal that contacted by somebody where I have possibly been directly exposed. Can not be able to get a test was really frustrating. Doctors recommend staying at home for 14 days if you think you've been exposed to covert 19 even if you don't have symptoms for the California report, I'm Sammy Kaye Ola in Sacramento. Run ahead now to Imperial County along the border with Mexico. Almost 90% of the people who live there are Latino, black or native American, No county in California has been hit harder. Like over 19. Imperial County has the highest rate of cases and with a shortage of I C u bets there, some patients have had to wait for a bed as long as three days. That's prompted officials to transfer hundreds of patients to facilities outside the county. Earlier, We spoke with Cal matters. Reporter Ana Deborah, who's been tracking this story. I started by asking her what she knows about where all those people are being transferred for treatment patients There have been sent really all over California. Many have been sent to the Bay Area. Some have been sent to its North Sacramento At the beginning, Many were being transferred mostly to the surrounding counties. So Riverside San Bernadino, San Diego really anywhere that is Before that have been available to take Imperial County patients. Imperial County, you know, is looking everywhere. And what has been the reaction from officials in those other counties where these patients from Imperial County are going. Are they worried about their own systems being overwhelmed? Yes. So I've been very clear that they take the patients they can. They can afford to take that I did speak to some hospital officials. So where does prompt the question you know, if I take a Imperial County patient will I have enough place for patients in unknown community so that that question is being asked? You know, Another thing that I found really striking about your reporting was looking at places that are already close to saturate Eso. A place that comes to mind is actually right here in the Bay Area where there's a major outbreak at San Quentin State Prison in Marin County. I'm just wondering, you know, how are you? Seeing outbreaks like that put pressure on local Hospital systems say UCSF, right So, yes, Quentin B outbreak there has sent the most recent number. You know, 62 patients drink. Then Quentin has gone to Bay Area hospitals. The local hospital There is more in general, and usually patients are taking from San Quentin stabilized in mine General and then Transfer to hospital outside the county. So yes, that makes it tougher when you have you know that they area dealing with their own outbreak, then is it makes you tougher for them to take imperial of patient from Apparel County. I think it's important to note that you know, even if you do have a physical dead at a hospital if you do not have the staff To tend to that bed. You can't really use it. So you know, there's also another piece to take into account when we look at the number of hospital a number of I C u bed available. All right. Cal matters reporter Ana Obata. Thank you so much.

"7 90 ABC 800 to 2 to 5 to 2 to is the telephone number 1 800 to 2 to K A. B. C. Governor Gavin Newsom earlier today issued an edict for Imperial County Imperial County is Right up against Riverside County, right up against San Diego County and the Mexican border. And he issued this edict because the number of people testing positive for Cove in 19 is jumping through the roof in that county. And you scratch your head and you go. Why is it that Imperial County Is having so many people test positive. It is about his opposite of New York City, as you can get El Centro is the biggest city in Imperial County. El Centro has a population that could fit on a postage stamp. It is primarily rural. It's primarily filled with small towns and unincorporated county. There really isn't much going on down there except for agriculture yet. The tests are coming back positive in record, Never. What is going on? There are people coming up from Mexico to Imperial County, and they're going to the hospital to get treated. Okay, That would make sense. When those hospitals are full. They send them to Riverside County, which is where I'm sitting right now. Yet when Gavin Newsom Issues his edict and tweets about it and talks about the explosion in California. There is no mention of the fact that our porous border with Mexico is the reason why Imperial County is a hotbed. Zero mention at all. He has no problem going after people who go to the beach. He has no problem going after Huntington Beach for any reason under the sun or the paddle borders or anyone else. He lectures us about not wearing our masks, not wearing them properly. When were at restaurants when we're at bars when we're in public spaces? Yet in the case of Imperial County, we know the reason the numbers are going up. And that just goes unmentioned. Certainly no mention of the wall because if we had a wall between the United States and Mexico, Imperial County wouldn't be a hotbed for Cove in 19 now what it Somebody should ask him about that. 2 31 Let's take a look at all the latest headlights them.
