CoViD-19: CA Requires Vax For Health Care Workers, Visitors As Risk Increases to "Very High" | Vote NO On Recall | Mexico Sues Gun Manufacturers | Hooray For Soda Bar |


Hovvdy Played Soda Bar in the Before Times (Taken 11.14.2019)

I was so pleased when I got today's newsletter from Soda Bar that they'll be requiring proof of vaccines or a negative COVID-19 test for entry. With the delta variant as contagious as it is, this won't guarantee no cases will get through the doors, but all the mitigations together should help while also making people who have done the right thing by getting vaccinated feel more comfortable in spaces that are often packed shoulder to shoulder with hot sweat just wafting in the air. I think you're gonna see more venues follow suit, fingers crossed. 

Today was a waste of a day for me. I just couldn't motivate to do much of anything so I mostly just watched news and Olympics while doing my daily reading and then I zonked out, which is why I'm now still writing at nearly 2am.  

Wednesday is the County of San Diego's big reporting day (since they cut back from briefings and daily charts, so today I included one that I find interesting which is the demographics of vaccinated people by age. About 1 in 4 cases in the County is with 20-29 year olds, yet 18-29 year olds are still under 50% fully vaccinated. That is far from enough being as this is the age group most likely to be out at concerts, restaurants, bars, and the like. Hopefully enough venues and restaurants join forces that nudges these ding dongs to get the jabs. Then maybe I can get outta the house and stop being such a hermit. 

Stay safe out there.
