SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The holiday weekend could have a huge impact on coronavirus cases in Sacramento, according to the county health director.

Health officials are urging people to keep their distance to prevent more reopening rollbacks.

“They want to gather. They really want to gather for any kind of event,” said Aneetray Gaston, a Sacramento resident.

Sacramento County Health Director Dr. Peter Beilenson said this weekend is a tipping point.

“It’s crucial that people not gather this weekend,” he said.

Dr. Beilenson said there have been 1,000 new cases in Sacramento County in just the last week. It’s a huge jump when you compare that to the 18 weeks prior when there were just about 2,000 cases total.

“There’s no question that the actions people take this weekend can determine the future in the next couple weeks and the next few months as well,” Beilenson said.

Gatherings and parties at home are the biggest spreaders and the biggest problem for enforcement right now.

“I definitely think it’s going to get worse after this weekend for sure,” Gaston said.

Can Sacramento resist the urge?

“No, not at all. It’s Fourth of July, families get together. But with this thing going on, it’s better being around family than strangers,” said Angela Summers, a Sacramento resident.

Summers is having a Fourth of July and birthday gathering at home.

“We’ll be asking people who have been having symptoms to not come,” she said.

Gov. Newsom said he will announce more reopening rollback measures on Wednesday. He said Californians are in control of their own destiny.

CBS13 asked Dr. Beilenson if he thought the state might have to go back to shelter in place?

“I certainly hope that we wouldn’t. My guess is that the governor is going to come out by closing state beaches and state parks. That’s my guess, but I don’t know,” he said.

Crown Point Company One of Largest Ukulele Pick Makers in US

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A Crown Point man who grew up playing guitar and drums from a young age runs one of the country's largest ukulele pick manufacturing businesses.

John Mick founded Mick's Picks in 2009 after he noticed that ukulele picks were difficult to obtain.

“I saw how popular ukuleles were becoming 10 years ago and knew this wasn’t just a fad that would die down,” Mick told The Times of Northwest Indiana.

Last year, the company manufactured more than 600,000 picks, which were distributed to about 380 guitar and music stores across the country.

The picks that Mick creates consist of four different components that allow for flexible and durable use.

Most are manufactured in a shop outside his Crown Point home. The picks are bagged for distribution by developmentally disabled workers at TradeWinds in Hobart. They're then sold through nearly 230 Guitar Center stores, about 150 privately owned music stores and online across the world.

“We’re in every state in the nation,” said Mick, adding that he even sells in Europe.

Company customers include Meshugga Beach Party, Nashville singer-songwriter Travis Bowlin, Atomic Groove drummer Michael C. Stone and Hal Lindes from Dire Straits.

“Session players like our picks because they don’t make the clicking or concussive sounds other picks do in the recording studio,” Mick said.

Mick’s company also expanded the business to create bass picks, guitar picks and cymbal drums, which are uniquely designed to stand out in the market.

“All our growth has been organic,” he said. “We never spent a million dollars on advertising or anything. Whether our uke pick or our bass pick, we made something that was cool and functional and really different from what was out there.”
