San Jose Mayor Liccardo Tests Positive for Covid-19

San José Mayor Sam Liccardo has tested positive for COVID-19, a spokesperson announced at 10:4pm on Monday.

The mayor released the following statement:

“After feeling under the weather this evening, I tested positive for COVID-19. I am thankful that my vaccination has prevented any serious symptoms so far. I encourage everyone to get vaccinated, mask up indoors, and utilize free covid tests to help reduce the spread and the risk of serious symptoms."

No further information was provided, but the city of San Jose urges residents to get COVID-19 at-home tests by calling 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489).



  1. Is there any evidence that the course of the Mayor’s Covid episode would have been any different had he not taken the vaccines? Would it be any different if had taken a different vaccine? How many times do we think that the Mayor, who is fully vaccinated, will contract Covid over the next 12 months?

    Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery!

  2. @HB, No evidence – except the Mayor’s own “medical diagnosis” guess in his statement.

    So in other news, the Mayor joins the over 60% adults and over 75% children that have already had Covid and developed some amount of natural immunity to the Omicron strain of Covid.

    (April 2022) “CDC data shows that 60% of adults and 75% of children have antibodies indicating that they’ve been infected with Covid-19.”

    It is anyone’s guess (even Dr. Mayor) if his vaccine inoculations provided any level of protection.
    “Vaccine effectiveness — in terms of its ability to prevent virus spread —
    was just 18% with Omicron compared with 79% for the Alpha, which emerged in 2020,
    and 56% for Delta, the data from the JAMA Network Open study showed.”

    (May 2022) “Dennis Cunningham, the system medical director of infection control & prevention at Henry Ford Health in Detroit, told NBC News that the symptoms from the Omicron subvariants
    “have been pretty consistent. There’s less incidence of people losing their sense of taste and smell.
    In A Lot of Ways,
    it’s a Bad Cold,
    a lot of respiratory symptoms, stuffy nose, coughing, body aches, and fatigue.”

  3. Wow. We are about to have our ICU’s flooded to over capacity, yet again!

    How many times has this been the rallying cry for our Covidaholics? Has it been every week, we are just ONE moar week from calamity.

    The idea that an azzhat politician who is vaxxed and boosted gets Covid more than two years after the great pandemic is, indeed, troubling. Dear Leader was exposed how many dozens(hundreds/thousands) of times to the deadliest virus ever(YMMV) over the span of 26 months and he actually gets it after he’s been jabbed six ways to Sunday.

    Praise the Lord. He didn’t die! It’s some kind of Festivus Miracle.
