Things blew up at @ucdavis with reports that the 1st community acquired case of COVID19 was at our hospital. I received an email about this that I eventually posted to Twitter (I waited to post until I saw others reporting this)
Tons of stories came out over the next few weeks about this and I will add some links to them. But eventually, attention went elsewhere as the 1st large clusters of cases that were detected in the US ended up being in other locations.Email I received earlier today from @ucdavis Medical Center leaders regarding the case of apparently community acquired #COVID19 in #Sacramento at #UCDavis hospital pic.twitter.com/q9qrJq5iWo— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) February 27, 2020
Actions from UC Davis announced regarding COVID19 was, well, better than nothing but pretty limited.

Will help increase social distancing but not going as far as I would like ... I hope this moves very soon from "recommend" to "require" https://t.co/khnnVCZFeN
