No free testing is available to the 30,000 folks in the Ridgecrest area, almost none of whom would test positive! Many of these people would be happy to be tested so they could get out from under these restrictions. Is this too hard for County Health Officer and the County Administrator t…

Nothing in East Kern for a while; hmm, must be just lip service.

I just want to know the answer to the same question a half million non-Bakersfield Kern County residents have...ARE THERE ANY CASES IN MY TOWN?

I don't think it has to be much more detailed to be satisfyingly to average reader. Anyone out side the city of Bakersfield should be able to know the cases/deaths situation IN THEIR TOWN. Inside Bakersfield is a little stickier. I think the folks aking for data by school districts is rea…

Kudos to Stacey Shepard! This issue has been festering since the first COVID-19 report out of the Kern County Public Health Department. This impressive research brings into focus what has Kern county's 890,000 residents all but ready to riot at how they are being kept in the dark. There's…
