California Now Recommends Masks in All Indoor Settings; San Jose Schools Mandate Vaccine or Tests for Teachers, Staff

In response to the spike in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and new CDC guidance calling for masking measures to prevent the spread of the highly transmissible and deadly Delta variant, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) July 28 updated its Guidance for Face Coverings, recommending mask use for indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.

“”The Delta variant has caused a sharp increase in hospitalizations and case rates across the state. We are recommending masking in indoor public places to slow the spread while we continue efforts to get more Californians vaccinated,” said Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, the state public health officer.

Under the CDC’s new guidance, more than 90% of California’s population is currently in areas designated as substantial or high transmission, including all Bay Area counties. San Francisco and Alameda County are in the highest CDC category for community transmission. Santa Clara and San Mateo counties are in the next highest category, in maps released Wednesday.

According to the CDC, getting vaccinated helps protect from the virus and the circulating variants, including the Delta variant that is now seen in the majority of California’s new cases.

Earlier this week, California announced it is requiring all state and health care employees to provide proof of vaccination or submit to regular testing. California had also led with its K-12 school guidance, requiring universal masking and other prevention measures as schools fully open for the upcoming school year

The San Jose Unified School District told several news outlets Wednesday it will require teachers and staff to either be vaccinated or tested twice a week for the coronavirus, effective Aug. 1. District spokesperson Jennifer Maddox told The Mercury News, “I suspect that’s going to be the direction most districts go” as concerns grow about rising infection rates driven by the more contagious delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19.

“Everyone has the same goal overall of keeping students and staff as safe as possible,” Maddox told the Mercury News.

More than 90% of San Jose Unified’s 2,700 teachers and staff already have been vaccinated, school officials said.

Maddox said.

San Jose Unified will also mandate that masks be worn inside and outside of school buildings, regardless of vaccination status — a step further than state public health guidelines, which only require masks indoors. While indoors, students will need to maintain three feet of distance between each other.

 

Also this week, the California State University System followed the state’s lead the next day, rolling out a requirement that staff and students who come to campus must be vaccinated by the end of September. Santa Clara County said it will have a similar policy for its employees.

State health officials said they are continuing to motivate businesses and local communities to encourage vaccination to prevent new outbreaks in areas of substantial and high transmission.

Unvaccinated Californians can go to myturn.ca.gov or call (833) 422-4255 to schedule their appointment or go to myturn.ca.gov/clinic to find a walk-in clinic.

The CDC also updated its guidance to recommend all teachers, staff and students in K-12 schools wear masks, even if they are fully vaccinated. Children should return to full-time, in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place, including masking and vaccination, if they are eligible. There is consensus among all leading authorities—including the CDC, CDPH, and the American Academy of Pediatrics—that universal masking is the safest and surest approach to full in-person instruction.

As of July 28:

  • California has 3,822,551 confirmed cases to date. Numbers may not represent true day-over-day change as reporting of test results can be delayed.
  • There were 6,849 newly reported confirmed cases Tuesday.
  • Cases are increasing statewide, largely among unvaccinated populations.
    • For the week of July 14-20, the average case rate among unvaccinated Californians is 20.7 per 100,000 per day and the average case rate among vaccinated Californians is significantly lower at 3.5 per 100,000 per day.
    • The vast majority of new cases are among the unvaccinated with 600% higher case rates among the unvaccinated than for those who are vaccinated.
  • The seven-day positivity rate is 5.9%.
  • There have been 73,252,199 tests conducted in California. This represents an increase of 116,448 during the prior 24-hour reporting period.
  • There have been 63,849 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
  • Providers have reported administering a total of 43,663,282 vaccine doses statewide. The CDC reports that 49,539,695 doses have been delivered to entities within the state. Numbers do not represent true day-to-day change as reporting may be delayed. For more vaccination data, visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Data Dashboard.

    This suggests he’s writing this story using someone else’s work and not his own?

  2. Of course there’s a spike in Covid-19 cases!!! The current scum bag of a President and his corrupt administration have allowed hundreds of thousands of Covid positive illegal immigrants pour into our country and into our communities.

    Specifically:

    “How bad is California’s Delta COVID-19 surge? If the Golden State was still using its four-color reopening blueprint for ranking counties by infection rates, at least a dozen, including Los Angeles, Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano now would be in the most-restrictive purple tier, and many businesses would not be fully open.

    And that’s using new metrics introduced in March that made it easier for counties with higher case rates to move into lower-restriction tiers once the state reached what it considered equitable vaccination rates. Using the state’s original tier definitions, 29 counties, including San Francisco, now would be purple, which meant that the virus was widespread, a Bay Area News Group analysis found.”

    And:

    “But given the Delta variant’s high transmissibility and rapid spread, even in the highly vaccinated Bay Area where many people continue wearing masks, new restrictions may be in order.

    “The Delta variant’s transmissibility is so much greater than anything we’ve encountered,” Swartzberg said. “I think the Bay Area was wise in recommending masks indoors for everyone. If things continue on the trajectory we’re seeing, the Bay Area will probably have to mandate it and hope it’s sufficient to flatten the curve.”

    SORRY BUT ALL OF YOU THAT DIDN’T GET VACCINATED, NOR PRACTICED SAFETY JUST PUT US BACK INTO THE HOLE AGAIN, GOOD WORK!!!

  10. This is really dumb. If you look at the Santa Clara County dashboard for ICU and non-ICU hospitalizations they haven’t changed at all for months and are way down from January. Look at it yourself everyone. Don’t just read the headlines. The absurdity of this all really does need to end.

    First, you are currently correct regarding the information regarding the hospitalizations. However the color codes are based on the current positive test results (https://covid19.sccgov.org/dashboard-testing) and are not based on hospitalizations, which tend to lag as much as 3 to 4 weeks behind the positivity rates. Which if you look at that website indicates we are on track to peaking at the same level as we were in July 2020. And it is 2.1% higher than it was June 30, 2021. Which is a 520% increase

    And if you look at the CA.GOV hospital database it indicates that Santa Clara County currently has only 81 available ICU beds at this time, remember if it ever reaches below 30, that will likely cause the most severe control measures again. The SCC Covid database does not contain this information it refers to the stat dashboard. You can see it here (https://public.tableau.com/views/COVID-19HospitalsDashboard/Hospitals?:embed=y&:showVizHome=no). In January we only had 40 available beds. One could state we really didn’t make much progress here. In June of last year, we had 230 available beds. In one week, the available beds shrunk by 7.

    Joe I really think you are not really doing good homework at this time. I am not “just reading the headlines” and my information is not looking good.

    And if you look at this website (https://covid19.sccgov.org/covid-19-variant-dashboard) you will see there are the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Eta, Iota, 2 unmamed variants, Kappa, and Zeta variants. There is VERY little news discussing these and the vaccines at this time.

    Lets face the facts, there is a lot going on, and most of it is not good, even with the vaccines, and yes I got mine.

    I never said the Maddox quote was inaccurate. I pointed out that the author was using another author’s work and not his own. How hard is it to call Maddox and speak to her and maybe get her to answer some of your own questions. Reporters are supposed to ask questions.
    What this author did was retread someone else’s work. While he gave credit to the Mercury, why even bother to write the story at all?

    I never accused him of plagiarism or misconduct. He’s just lazy.

    As for looking to start a fight. WTF? With you? You live in a little fantasy world where everything is about you.

    Good that your hones about that. You wrote:

    That is a person just “looking for a fight” witrh the AUTHOR, and ANYONE that disagrees with you, You wrote:

    Again that writing indicates a person looking for a fight with the AUTHOR and ANYONE that disagrees with you. You wrote:

    “As for looking to start a fight. WTF? With you? You live in a little fantasy world where everything is about you.”

    NOW YOU WRITE SOMETHING DIRECTED AT ME LOOKING TO START A FIGHT. NOT ONLY ARE YOU NOT EVEN ANYWAY AN EXPERT FOR A JOURNALIST, BUT FOR MONTHS YOU RANT AND COMPLAIN BASED ON NO SUBSTANTIVE EVIDENCE. I ONLY POINTED OUT YOUR BEHAVIOR AND CONTENT WAS AN ATTACK AGAINST THIS PUBLICATION AND THE WRITER. AND YET YOU SEEM TO THINK IT WAS ABOUT ME BEING TARGETED? WELL THE LAST PART YOU ARE CORRECT, BUT THE REST WAS JUST TRYING TO COVER UP WHAT YOU AT THE VERY LEAST “IMPLIED” WAS JOURNALISTIC DISHONESTY OR WORSE.

    YOU DON’T LIKE BEING ADDRESSED RESPECTFULLY BUT CLEARLY PROVEN TO HAVE MADE MULTIPLE UNSUBSTANTIATED ALLEGATIONS ON THIS FORUM.

  17. Goldstein,

    What part of what I said is a made up story? That Covid-19 positive cases are spiking? That the current scum bag of a President and his corrupt administration are allowing Covid-19 positive illegal immigrants pour into our country and into our communities? If you don’t believe that this has anything to do with the increase in Covid-19 positive cases you’re delusional.

If you don’t believe that this has anything to do with the increase in Covid-19 positive cases you’re delusional.”

    ACTUALLY, YOUR ASSUMPTIONS AND PERSONAL ATTACKS, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU REPEAT IT, IS NOT BACKED UP WITH SCIENCE. YOU ARE MAKING A CONCLUSION WITH NOT DATA OR EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT. ALL I AM SAYING IS IT IS BEEN TOO LONG FOR COMMENTS LIKE THIS BASED ON NO EVIDENCE TO BE GOING UNCHALLENGED. YOU ARE THE KIND OF PERSON CARL SAGAN WARNED US ABOUT IN HIS BOOK “THE DEMON-HAUNTED WORLD”

    INSTEAD OF JUST REPEATING YOURSELF, FIND THE SCIENTIFIC CONTACT TRACING DATA THAT PROVES YOUR ARGUMENT. I KNOW SOME “ALT-RIGHT” SOCIAL MEDIA PEOPLE ARE POSTING VIDEOS, MANY LOOKING LIKE A REAL NEWS BROADCAST, BUT REALLY, THEY ARE JUST OPINIONS BASED ON NO SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS. AND IF ANYTHING ELSE, THEY ARE NOT BEING VACCINATED EITHER BECAUSE OF THE THREAT OF BEING DEPORTED. ALL WE HAVE IS REPRESENTATIVES REPORTING THEIR OBSERVATIONS, OR THEIR INTERESTS, HOWEVER THOSE INDIVIDUALS HAVE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

    IF ANYTHING ELSE, THE FACT THAT THE U.S. HAS THE MOST AVAILABLE VACCINES IS THE BIGGEST ATTRACTION OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION INTO THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE NO VACCINES ARE PROVIDED IN MEXICO OR THE LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES. THEY ARE COMING SO THEY CAN SAVE THEIR LIVES FROM COVID, I DO BELIEVE ALL IMMIGRANTS SHOULD BE DETAINED, VACCINATED PRIOR TO RELEASE, BUT THAT TAKES AN ACT OF CONGRESS RIGHT?

  19. Senile old JoeBiden’s immigration policies have been the nation’s biggest COVID SUPER SPREADER Event – over 1 MILLION illegal aliens have been arrested at the US-Mexico Border since Oct 2020. And it is not slowing – in June over 6,300 people on average have been encountered Criminally Crossing the border every day based on the 21-day average – and “Got-Aways” adds another 30%- 50% more Illegal Crossings.
    In February, 10% of migrant detainees TESTED POSITIVE for the Coronavirus – 17% higher than the overall US population.

  20. Goldstein,

    Wonderful Goldstein! Challenge away. You’re the one trying to prove your argument, so why don’t you provide evidence that what I’m saying is not true and is just a made up story.

    ACTUALLY, YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND IF YOU WANT TO TESTIFY OR LODGE AN ARGUMENT IN COURT OR IN DEBATE, YOU MUST PROVE YOUR ARGUMENT FIRST. THEN THE REBUTTAL MUST PROVE THEIR ARGUMENT. I HAVE MADE SOME RESOURCES ALREADY IN ANY CASE. BUT OF COURSE YOU REFUSE TO PROVE YOUR ARGUMENT IN ANY CASE, THUS YOU LOSE.

  22. Steven – the internet is fairly easy to use – multiple sources – do your homework, try the search engine of your choice (even the ones that promote liberal biased news). Try the highly biased news source cnn, also try axios, nbc news, fox news and the DHS “Of the more than 700 unaccompanied migrant minors who were transported to the San Diego Convention Center from Texas, roughly 10% have tested positive for COVID-19, according to multiple news reports citing health officials.”
    NBC reports “Since the City started testing the migrants on January 25, there has been 6.3% of positive cases. The Cameron County positivity rate is 13.8%.”
    Maybe ask “Whataburger” employees how business is now that the hotel nest door is full of Covid positive illegals that taxpayers are paying to house. “Texas police learn COVID-positive illegal immigrants sent to local hotels, after Whataburger encounter” Authorities became aware of the matter after apprehended border crossers reported they tested Positive and were exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 inside the fast food restaurant – coughing & sneezing and not adhering to health guidelines, including the wearing of masks.

  23. This is perfect timing for the recall Gavin campaign. Thank you thank you thank you CDC!! Next Gavin will close the schools, parks, restaurants, beaches and playgrounds. The fires and choking smoky air along with the electrical power flickering on and off are happening already.

    AGAIN PROVIDE ME RESOURCES NOT JUST TAKING WORDS OUT OF STORIES. BECAUSE LIKE IN MOST CASES WHEN I READ THE RESOURCES IF YOU PROVIDE THEM, I ALMOST 100% OF THE TIME POINT OUT THE RESOURCE TENDS TO SAY A DIFFERENT STORY. You wrote:

    “NBC reports “Since the City started testing the migrants on January 25, there has been 6.3% of positive cases. The Cameron County positivity rate is 13.8%.”

    BUT AGAIN WHERE IS THE ACTUAL STORY LINK, YOU ARE WRITING STATEMENST BUT WITH NO RESOURCE TO REFERENCE. WHY DO YOU EXPECT ME TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK? STOP JUST WRTING QUOTES AND START PROVIDING RESOURCE SOURCES. You wrote:

    “Maybe ask “Whataburger” employees how business is now that the hotel nest door is full of Covid positive illegals that taxpayers are paying to house. “Texas police learn COVID-positive illegal immigrants sent to local hotels, after Whataburger encounter” Authorities became aware of the matter after apprehended border crossers reported they tested Positive and were exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 inside the fast food restaurant – coughing & sneezing and not adhering to health guidelines, including the wearing of masks.”

    AGAIN, PLEASE PROVIDE THE SOURCES OF THIS WRITING. IF YOU CANNOT PROVIDE THE LINKS SO I CAN READ THEM, OR IN MANY CASES INDICATE THE INFORMATION YOU QUOTE IS OUT OF CONTEXT, OR WORSE IT IS FROM A “QUESTIONABLE” RESOURCE?

    WHY DO I HAVE TO REPEAT MY REQUEST OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

    This was written by a publication called “The Center Square”, hardly a national news resource, and most importantly is a political activist if you look at her own website bio (https://www.bethanyblankley.com) that states:

    “Bethany Blankley writes about public policy issues for The Center Square newswire, a publication of the Franklin News Foundation, focusing on state and national policy.

    Her commentary has been published by The Washington Times, Townhall Religion Today, Charisma News, Christian Headlines, and others. Her articles about religion and politics are published at Hedgerow, a publication of Patehos/BeliefNet. She has also provided political commentary on public radio and Fox News Radio affiliates and Fox News.

    Bethany got her start in politics interning for Sen, Bob Dole, R-Kansas, when he was Senate Majority Leader. She then went for the press offices of three other Senators and one Congressman on Capitol Hill. She later worked in the press office of a New York Governor and for several nonprofits before she began writing for national news publications”

    HARDLY A RESOURCE PROVEN TO BE UNBIASED. WHAT THIS REPRESENTS AGAIN IS PRESS RELEASES DISGUISING THEMSELVES AS NEWS. EXACTLY THE KIND OF THING CARL SAGAN WARNED US ABOUT IN THE BOOK “THE DEMON-HAUNTED WORLD”

  26. CA PATTIOT, You wrote:

    “NBC reports “Since the City started testing the migrants on January 25, there has been 6.3% of positive cases. The Cameron County positivity rate is 13.8%.”

    BUT YOU ALL ARE SAYING THAT I8LLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WERE THE CAUSE OF COVID. JUST TO PROVE A POINT HERE THE QUOTE ABOVE WAS FROM THE STORY TITLED: “After Border Patrol release, asylum-seekers test positive for Covid in Brownsville, Texas” WHICH MEANS THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND IN FACT ARE GOING THROUGH THE PROPER PROCEDURES. SINCE THAT QUOTE IS OUT OF CONTEXT AND IS PROVEN HERE (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/after-border-patrol-release-asylum-seekers-test-positive-covid-brownsville-n1259282)

    SO THE SECOND NEWS REPORT WAS CLEARLY MISINFORMATION, I WILL NOW JUST CHALK UP ALL OF YOUR RESOURCES ARE INTENTIONALLY MISQUOTING OR WORSE DISHONEST PRODUCTION OF EVIDENCE.

  27. CA PATRIOT you wrote:

    THIS WAS A FOX NEWS REPORT BUT T IS ALSO BEING REPRESENTED FALSELY BECAUSE THE REPORT ACTUALLY SAID:

    “The La Joya Police Department said a patrol officer was waved down Monday by someone concerned about a group that appeared to be sick at a Whataburger fast food restaurant. The officer found a family inside who were coughing and sneezing and not adhering to health guidelines, including the wearing of masks, authorities said during a news conference.

    A manager told the officer they wanted the people to leave the establishment because they were making everyone inside “uneasy.” When the officer approached the migrants, they said they had tested positive for the coronavirus and had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents several days prior before being released.

    THEY DIDN’T HAVE DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE THEY WERE COVID-POSITIVE, LA JOYA POLICE SGT. MANUEL CASAS SAID.

    “We did not know this,” he said. “No one told the city of La Joya. No one told the police department that these people were here and no one told us that these people were possibly ill.”

    THE MIGRANTS TOLD THE OFFICER THEY WERE STAYING AT THE NEARBY TEXAS INN & SUITES. THE HOTEL MANAGER TOLD AUTHORITIES THAT THE CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY HAD BOOKED ROOMS IN THE HOTEL TO HOUSE UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS DETAINED BY BORDER PATROL.

    “We have an understanding based on what was told to us that the hotel in totality has already been rented out,” Casas said. “The information we have is that everyone that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19 positive because it’s being rented out for them.”

    At the hotel, officers observed 20 to 30 people outside not wearing masks, the police department said in a social media post. The wearing of masks is not mandated but those exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should wear one, Casas said.

    He said the department cannot stop any of the migrants from leaving the hotel and moving on to another destination in the United States.

    POLICE LATER LEARNED THAT THOSE DETAINED BY BORDER PATROL SHOWING SYMPTOMS OR WHO BECAME INFECTED WITH COVID-19 WERE BEING QUARANTINED AND THEN LATER HANDED OVER TO THE CHARITY GROUP TO BE PLACED IN HOTELS IN THE MCALLEN AREA, AS WELL AS LA JOYA, POLICE SAID.

    In a statement to Fox News, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson said the Rio Grande Valley sector has encountered “significant numbers of undocumented migrants crossing the border.”

    “During these challenging times, our federal, state, and local partnerships are indispensable as we work to secure our borders and to quickly move individuals out of USBP custody and through the appropriate immigration pathway,” the spokesperson said.

    Officials contacted the Hidalgo County Department of Health and Human Services, which said it will look into the matter.

    Fox News has reached out to the Catholic charity group. Casas acknowledged the charity was trying to help the migrants and may have been overwhelmed when they booked the hotel rooms.

    An employee at the hotel declined to give his name but told Fox News there were undocumented migrants at the hotel but he wasn’t sure how many.

    “THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE TRYING TO HELP,” HE SAID. “WE DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS HERE (WITH COVID-19).”

    In response to the news, city officials are asking the public to adhere to social distancing measures and wear masks.

    Illegal border crossings have surged under the Biden administration. U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently announced there were nearly 190,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in June. The total number of encounters for the fiscal year topped 1 million, according to the figures.

    On Tuesday, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott, a Republican, ordered the Texas National Guard to assist the state Department of Public Safety in making arrests related to the border.”

    SO AS I SEEM TO ALWAYS DO, I PROVE NOT ONLY WAS A QUOTE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT, BUT ACTUALLY PROVEN TO NOT BEAR THE PROPER RESEARCH TO PROVE THE QUOTE WAS ACCURATE.

    IF ANYTHING WHY KEEP POSTING INFORMATION THAT IS SO EASILY DISPROVEN?

  28. Goldstein,

    I lose? The last time I checked this was the comments section of San Jose Inside not a courtroom. Again, you fail to answer two very simple questions with two very simple answers. Maybe you lose.

  29. Folks-

    This is way beyond full retard. Arguing with ‘potato’ is just not possible in any kind of rational way.

    MAYBE YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND ONE SIMPLE FACT, THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE THIS FORUM, THERE IS THE SAME REQUIREMENT AS IF YOU WERE TALKING TO A CITY COUNCIL OR COUNTY SUPERVISORS MEETING. MEANING THAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE THIS FORUM TO DISSEMINATE MISINFORMATION.

    THE RESPONSE YOU JUST WROTE IN EFFECT WAS A CONFESSION TO THE READERS HERE. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS CONNING THE READERS INTO THINKING THAT YOU WERE PRESENTING ACCURATE INFORMATION, WHEN YOU KNEW YOU WEREN’T.

    THIS IS WHY SITES LIKE TWITTER, FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, AND THE LIKE, WHICH ARE “MODERATED” LIKE THIS ONE HAVE HAD TO START FLAGGING COMMENTS FOR BEING UNVERIFIABLE OR WORSE PROVEN TO BE MISINFORMATION.

    IN FACT, I AM WONDERING WHAT ACTIONS I MIGHT BE ABLE TO PARTAKE THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE SAN JOSE INSIDE TO DO THE SAME.

    NOW I AM NOT SAYING CENSORSHIP, WHAT I AM SAYING IS THE MODERATORS HAVE A DUTY TO CLARIFY WHETHER ANYONE’S COMMENTS HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE UNRELIABLE. EVEN MY OWN.

    IN ANY EVENT YOUR RECKLESS DISREGARD OF UPHOLDING INTEGRITY IN A PUBLIC FORUM IS REALLY A GOOD INDICATION OF WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT NOW.

  31. Goldstein.

    You do what you feel you need to do Boo.

    Of course there’s a spike in Covid-19 cases!!! The current scum bag of a President and his corrupt administration have allowed hundreds of thousands of Covid positive illegal immigrants pour into our country and into our communities.

    AGAIN, I POINT OUT WHAT YOUR OWN STORIES INDICATED. THOSE “DETAINED” ARE TESTED AND QUARANTINED. YOU HAVE NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT THE CURRENT SPIKE IS IN FACT CAUSED BY YOUR SOURCE. YOU ARE JUST TRYING TO SCAPEGOAT THESE PEOPLE.

    THE FACTS ARE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE BEHAVING UNSAFELY, THE CURRENT RESEARCH IS INDICATING THAT THE DELTA STRAIN HAS AN R(NOT) OF 8, WHICH MEANS ONE PERSON IS CURRENTLY INFECTING 8 OTHERS. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?

    IT IS HAPPING BECAUSE IT SPREAD IN BOTH VACCINATED AND UNVACCINATED HOSTS WHEN THEY DO NOT USE MASKS, DO NOT DO SOCIAL DISTANCING, AND IN THIS CASE THE JULY 4 SUPER SPREADER OCCURRED WHEN SO MANY STATES, EVEN THIS ONE STARTED LIFTING MASKS AND DISTANCING.

    BUT YOU GO ON AND KEEP TRYING TO SHIFT THE BLAME TO OTHERS, MY ONLY HOPE IS THAT YOU DO NOT WIND UP GETTING ANY VARIANT, SPREAD IT TO OTHERS, OR WORSE YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED AND YOU WIND UP IN AN ICU. THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU EXPECT PERFECTION REGARDING COVID, AND THAT SIMPLY WON’T HAPPEN.

    AND IF YOU JUST LOOK AT FACTCHECK.ORG HERE (https://www.factcheck.org/2021/03/the-facts-on-the-increase-in-illegal-immigration/) YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT THERE MAY BE NO INCREASE IN CROSSINGS AT ALL. GIVEN THAT IT IS SAID THAT THESE CROSSINGS PEAKED IN 2019. 2020 SHOWED A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN APPREHENSIONS, ARE YOU SAYING THE BORDER PATROLS ARE GETTING LESS EFFECTIVE IN DOING THEIR JOB (DURING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION)?

    YOU ARE MAKING ALLEGATIONS WITH NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF, AND THE READERS HERE MUST BE MADE AWARE OF IT.

  33. Steven, lol.. come on man, whining about sources as expected – try some diversity of thought. But hey, if it makes you feel good, you go on sniffing the Huff Poo and believing WaPo and Mother Jones..and this extreme Gaslighting Biden Admin.
    Bless your heart if you believe..
    Senile old Joe: when he insists “the Surge Is Normal”.. when it’s setting records.
    Mayorkas: “.. the Border Is Closed and that we enforce the laws that Congress has passed..”
    Psaki: “Border influx – Not A Crisis..”
    Psaki: “..most illegal crossers are being turned back” when officials at the border report the reverse.
    Border Czar “H-U” Harris: “..we have seen Extreme Progress over the last few months” at the border.
    No wonder Team Biden has restricted media access, even though Left Biased reporters focus mainly on the Feds failure to help the migrants enough.
    It’s amazing that they keep all these lies coming, but apparently they have no idea what else to do.
    How much else is the Biden administration lying about?

  34. StevenG, Are you typing with 2 pair of rubber gloves? ..maybe your glasses are fogged up from your triple masking and face shield? Or are you hitting the CAPS LOCK key as you frantically wipe down your keyboard after each comment post?

    DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT, REALLY? WHAT YOU ARE PRACTICING IS NOT DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT. IT IS POLITICAL ADVERTISING WITHOUT PAYING FOR IT. IT IS CALLED “ASTROTURFING” AND YOU ARE BEING PAID FOR IT.

    IT IS THE DISREGARD OF REALITY BECAUSE YOU MAKE CLAIMS AND ARGUMENTS WITH DECEPTIVE RESEARCH OR OUTRIGHT DECEPTIVE STATEMENTS.

    TRUE DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT DEALS WITH PEOPLE OPERATING WITH A COMMON FRAMEWORK WHERE OBJECTIVE INFORMATION IS VALIDATED AND AUTHENTICATED, THEN EXPLICIT EITHER INDUCTIVE OR DEDUCTIVE LOGIC IS DEMONSTRATED TO PROVIDE VALUE AND MEANING OF A THOUGHT. YOU PROVIDE NONE OF THAT, JUST NAME CALLING AND TAKING STATEMENTS OR EVENTS OUT OF CONTEXT.

    THUS, THE READERS HERE MUST BE EXPOSED TO THIS REALITY, NOT YOUR ALTERNATE REALITY.
