CoViD-19 San Diego Stats | Newsom Nominates First Gay Justice Martin Jenkins To State Supreme Court | CDC Acknowledges Airborne Transmission (Again)


Nadia in her chicken hat for her birthday/Oktoberfest (Taken 10.5.2020)

We had so much fun celebrating Oktoberfest and Nadia' birthday at my parents' house on Sunday. We had our giant Belgian soft pretzels, grilled sausages, and my mom's amazing potato salad. We (distantly and masked) danced to silly polkas and the Chicken Dance for good measure. After getting home, Darren and I continued the party in the speakeasy and I'm paying for it today for sure, so the day has been full of a lot of couching and terrible TV. Nova and I watched Zookeeper which is just as terrible as you'd expect from a Kevin James movie, and then Darren and I started watching Sneakerheads which I'm on the fence about because how many bad decisions can one person make? Over the weekend we watched Vampires vs The Bronx and we all loved that. Super funny and quality family movie. I'll be back tomorrow with Dr. Ghaly's state0 updates with our updated county tier assessment. We won't see movement either way despite our unadjusted rate being in the purple tier last week because our adjusted rate had San Diego staying red, but it will be interesting to see the numbers regardless. Today's briefing notes and other news after the jump.
