"Unwarranted Shutdowns"

Unfortunately, for many businesses in San Diego County the end is near. With the Governor’s announcement that gyms, personal care services, hair salons, barbershops and malls must cease indoor operations, this could be the final straw. Governor Gavin Newsom compared his latest... — Updated 7/30/2020

 

"Thank You Post Office"

It seems we’ve become a kinder and gentler world in the midst of the current turmoil of COVID-19 even in Borrego Springs. I received a package without a PO Box number that normally would be sent back. The postal worker took the time to call me to inform me and ask for my PO Box... — Updated 7/30/2020

 

"No Go Pharmacy"

I went to the pharmacy in Borrego Springs to pick up a prescription, which also required a syringe. However, they would not give it to me and were very rude, and made me feel uncomfortable. They said they would contact my doctor and they would call me, which they did not do. I... — Updated 7/20/2020

 

"Feeding Borrego"

Thank you fellow Borregans for your support in feeding local families. These past months have been especially hard on our most vulnerable citizens.

"The Latest at the County"

My goal during this pandemic has been to keep people safe, while responsibly reopening businesses and getting people back to work.

"To My Clients..."

My dear clients, I want to assure you that I am not withholding my Holistic and Therapeutic health and wellness services from you, in spite of the state authorizing the reopen of massage and spa services. Although I provide therapeutic massage as part of my holistic work, I do not... — Updated 7/9/2020

 

"BCHF: The Hell of Hell's"

I worked for the Borrego Community Health Foundation for four years, and took over their Credentialing Department back in 2015. I did a job meant for five people; I was my own department. I ran the Credentialing committee and worked with directors (Dr. Dauod Ghafari, Dr. Alfredo R... — Updated 7/1/2020

"Signs Were Meant To Help"

Dear Borrego Springs, Yes, there were signs posted reminding travelers of the shelter in place order. As we are now in a re-opening phase they have all been removed.

"On the Bright Side"

Let’s look on the bright side. For the first time ever when I have to buy gas at either XL or Mirage Gas stations or I have to buy food at the Center Market or I have to repair my home and shop at True Value Hardware – at least now the robbers taking your money have to wear... — Updated 6/17/2020

 

"Making More Progress"

I took a tour of Fit Athletic & Gym, which is the largest privately-owned gym in San Diego. On June 15, Fit opened their doors for the first time in 90 days. While it’s long overdue, I’m glad to see Fit and other local businesses are finally reopening. I want to tell all the... — Updated 6/16/2020

 

"Dear Borrego..."

You welcomed me as your postmaster, you mourned with me when my husband died, after that you welcomed me as a neighbor when I moved here from Julian. You have brought joy to my heart, peace to my soul, and growth to my spirit. You have given me years of peace and strength in a... — Updated 6/15/2020

 

"Way Too Early"

Too Early To Open??? Yes!!! We can not see this evil virus. We may have it but don’t know it yet. We may have it but be asymtomatic, never showing any signs. We have no vaccine and will not for many months to come. And once we get a vaccine, how long will it take to produce and... — Updated 6/15/2020

 

"Protecting Our Most Vulnerable"

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been led by facts and data. While I’m pleased to see more businesses open, like hair salons and restaurants, there are many more that need to open. During this opening process, we need to continue to be safe and smart about protecting our... — Updated 6/10/2020

 

"Bee Sting Clinic Hell"

My story is of the horrors of the one and only time we used the clinic in Borrego. We’ve had a vacation home here for over 30 years and since retiring in 2007, we now call Borrego Springs home. Having said that, at the time, we still wanted to use our doctors of many years over... — Updated 6/3/2020

 

"Cruel Clinic"

Jan Jones and Dr. Pamela McEvoy have been an integral part of our health care in Borrego Springs for many years. They are both loved and appreciated by their patients. They have built years of trust in this small community so it seems particularly cruel and callous for the... — Updated 6/1/2020

 

"Dangling and Confused"

As the surviving spouse of Dr. Jaime Paris, the one-time medical director and physician at the Borrego Medical Clinic, and a resident since 1989, I have followed the many changes good and not so good at the Borrego Medical Clinic.

"Please, No Signs"

I am a long time resident and business owner of Borrego Springs. Therefore, all for the safety of the people of our town in these crazy times. The COVID-19 Task Force has done a great job in helping our residents. I know there were concerns about the number of visitors at... — Updated 6/1/2020

 

"We, Not the Government..."

San Diego County can stay safe AND be open for business. We proved it with the essential businesses being open, and flattening the curve AND trends at the same time. We are a government of, for, and by the people. We the people of California, are facing the state’s new... — Updated 6/1/2020

 

"I Miss You, Borrego"

I miss seeing your smiling faces behind the masks; I miss the reassuring pats on the shoulder and the hugs of gratitude for your thoughtfulness and generosity; I miss the greetings at the Post Office and the Circle and the other ‘Hot Spots’ around town; I miss the chatter of... — Updated 5/22/2020

 

Is It Too Early To Reopen?

Hundreds to thousands of protesters have taken over a few cities in California over the last few weeks, defying the stay-at-home order, calling for officials to reopen the state.

"Senior Living"

Social isolation is not a new crisis for seniors, but in the era of coronavirus, it is one that our community is newly aware of. A third of San Diegans over age 65 live alone, many of whom have no one to care for them. For decades, our local senior centers have been a refuge for s... — Updated 5/13/2020

 

Thank you, San Diego County
