THE RIGHT REMEDY ... Visitors atMayView Palo Alto clinic will notice major renovations and expanded onsite services — many of which will help people follow COVID-19 safety protocols. The updates are evident once you step through the doors of the Grant Avenue facility, which is part of the Ravenswood Family Health Network. The entrance includes an expanded waiting area, which allows for more social distancing, and a new modular front desk with longer plexiglass. The site has added three exam rooms, which each now have more electrical outlets on the walls (they were previously on the floor, which posed a danger to visitors and staff). The additional outlets provide staff with enough power sources for equipment such as ultrasound machines, computers and HEPA air filtration systems. There are plans to dedicate two exam rooms for optometry services. The clinic also has put in a handicap-accessible bathroom with a cabinet for patients to leave specimen samples for lab testing. The changes extend to staff-only areas as well. Two large team rooms have been renovated to allow for more physical distancing and additional ergonomic equipment. The health network was able to move forward with the transformation through funds from the David & Lucile Packard Foundation and community members.

Beyond comprehension about the man harassing Gerardo Maldonado--wow! thank you to all who stepped up to protect him. [Portion removed.]

Sure hope the DA doesn't press any charges and if so hope all that saw the whole thing respond and help fight them.

The old man is just jealous that Gerardo Maldonado can do a wheelie.
I know I am.
