    Good to know that the covid-19 virus transmitted positive cases have lowered. I hope that continue to steadily lower. Yes we need to continue to follow the protocol that are set in place, but the 6 feet spacing of persons is observed no other place, but in the burial grounds.
    This fact not be pleasant to accept, but can you prove me wrong? Until then people will realistically come within the six foot range, some of the time, some for a long time.
    Protocols do Help, and should continue to be encouraged.

    It is easy to keep the numbers low when you lock up 80 construction workers and their families and refuse to test them until 21 days after the first positive case in the area. Not one of the 80 has any symptoms and 70 of them are fully vaccinated.Now I understand many other people also lock down without testing. Health department not been near any of the 120 construction workers, either the positive group or the unknown status group to ask how they are or if they need anything or to try and contact trace.

    Wow so the fully vax spreading so much virus. Clearly the vax don’t work. It’s a sham. Even Fauci don’t know if they should give a booster shot.

    Headline should read “VIs KNOWN Active Cases….” More than 50% of people who have it don’t know, so they would not seek testing.
