New testing shortages hit California’s vulnerable hardest amid record Covid-19 infections | US news | The Guardian
“It breaks my heart when we have to say no, we can’t test you,” said Dr Grace Neuman, an internist who runs the testing program at the South Central Family Health Center, in Los Angeles,
The center, which serves about 25,000 patients, is now only able to administer 25 test kits a day. A few weeks ago, Neuman said she was able to test four times as many patients, but commercial labs, facing a shortage of supplies, have been pinched and unable to process more than a couple of dozen tests from the center each day.

Ireland offers a hundred thousand welcomes – unless you’re American | World news | The Guardian
The would-be diners admitted they had not self-isolated for 14 days after entering Ireland, compelling a rebuff, said Keane. “I said no. There was no malice. It’s certainly not an anti-American sentiment.” Other businesses have followed suit, some openly, others discreetly. JP McMahon, a chef and owner of Cava Bodega in Galway, started questioning tourists and turning away those that admitted violating quarantine after his staff felt “uncomfortable” serving a group from Texas. The Kings Head pub in Galway and Gregan’s Castle Hotel in County Clare tweeted that they, too, had turned away Americans just off the plane. The Charleville Lodge in Dublin said that it was banning American tourists – even those seeking to quarantine in the hotel: “The government has advised that overseas guests must ‘stay in your hotel or guesthouse’, which means the government is happy to put my staff at risk by being in contact with these guests. This is not self-isolation.”

COVID-19 rages in county that dismissed farmworker risk – Los Angeles Times
As coronavirus cases began to grow in San Joaquin County in June, Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs proposed requiring citizens to wear a mask in his city in the center of the fertile valley, where agriculture is king and poverty pervasive.
The response he received from the county emergency services director, a key figure in coordinating the pandemic response, was disquieting, he said.
“Stay in your lane,” wrote Shellie Lima in a June 9 email to Tubbs obtained by The Times, days before the county allowed card rooms, hotels and day camps to open. “I am against the proposed mask ordinance for Stockton … Why would our elected officials feel that they have the medical understanding to do so?”
