A dozen workers test positive for Covid-19 at Cardenas Market in East Oakland

By Lynda Carson — May 28, 2020

Reportedly, Cardenas Market on 1630 High Street at Bancroft Avenue, in East Oakland, remains open this week to those who are willing to risk getting the Covid-19 virus, even though at least twelve workers at Cardenas Market have reportedly tested positive with Covid-19.

Reportedly, Noel Gallo, Oakland City Council member said, “It’s alarming that we allow activity to continue when employees are testing positive,” Gallo said Thursday, May 28. “If Cardenas is experiencing this, I’m sure other businesses are going through it too.”

Nearby, the Excell Healthcare Center in East Oakland, also on High Street, reportedly there were at least 4 deaths there, and 36 people there or more tested positive for Covid-19.

However, a new report currently reveals that 10 or fewer people died at Excell Healthcare Center at 3025 High Street, in Oakland, of Covid-19, and that 20 residents tested positive for Covid-19 today. But, so far 43 residents there have tested positive for Covid-19 https://projects.propublica.org/nursing-homes/homes/h-056170 .

Additionally, reportedly there were 10 or fewer deaths at Redwood Healthcare Center LLC, in Oakland, which is also located at 3145 High Street, in Oakland https://projects.propublica.org/nursing-homes/homes/h-555499 .

As of today, there are 302 Covid-19 cases in the zip code area of 94601 in Oakland where the Cardenas Market is located, and there seems to be no end in sight as the virus keeps spreading.

In total, Oakland presently has 1,093 known Covid-19 cases, and Alameda County has 3,097 cases, with 94 deaths. Oakland is the hot spot for Covid-19 in Alameda County, the city with most Covid-19 cases in comparison with all the other cities in Alameda County.

Reportedly, a McDonalds in Oakland was forced to close after the employees walked off the job two days ago after four of their co-workers tested positive for Covid-19. Reportedly, the workers at the McDonalds at 4514 Telegraph Avenue, in Oakland, were told to wear face masks made from dog diapers.

Reportedly, the same McDonalds at 4514 Telegraph Avenue, in Oakland, that was shut last Tuesday has faced a class action lawsuit in recent years, and was owned or operated at the time by, “The Edward J. Smith and Valerie S. Smith Family Limited Partnership and / or Edward, Valerie, or Michael Smith,” of Vallejo, California.
