Claremont continues to have low coronavirus rates, but with a few more residents infected, the total as of Monday, April 13 is 12. No one from Claremont has passed away. Today's video takes us up the Claraboya, the old Claremont Golf Course, and up to check on the water amounts streaming down to the San Antonio Dam from the mountains. The roads—including foot traffic—are slow as ever, which overall is a good thing given we are in a peak week to stay inside. Lots of nice views of Claremont are just a click away! Stay safe out there. —PW
