  • Any text messages asking to reactivate cards are scams.
  • Avoid clicking unexpected links claiming to be from the edd or Bank Of America.

Customers can call Bank Of America directly using the number on the back of their debit card to verify a text message.

Dominican Hosp Expansion 05-13-21 08:55 S.S.

A  planned  expansion  of  Dominican  Hospital’s  campus,  that  has  been  approved  by  the  Santa  Cruz  County  Planning  Commission,  goes  next  to  the  Santa  Cruz  County  Board  Of  Supervisors.    Included  in  the  plan is  adding  a  another  floor  to  the  building  and  an  added  3-story  parking  garage.    Although  the  added  rooms  won’t  mean  space  for  more  patients,  it  does  mean  that  each  room  will  be a single-occupancy  room.   When  it  comes  to  parking  though,  the  garage  would  mean  an  additional  60  parking spaces.
