Latest LB Health Order Contains COVID-19 Warnings Shrugged By Some At Their Peril And Risks To Others
(Sept. 22, 2021, 8:20 a.m.) -- LB's latest (Sept. 17) COVID-19 Health Order, contains warnings shrugged by some at their peril with risks to others. It merits serious reading.
At one point, without mentioning Governor Gavin Newsom by name, it cites his administration's June 15 action declaring CA "open" with few restrictions for resulting "community transmission of COVID-19 [that] has rapidly increased from low to high."
In April, Newsom decreed CA would reopen with few restrictions on June 15. He cited hopeful data without meaningful science for this. With COVID now spiking with the Delta variant, he now seeks to refocus the narrative into blaming unvaccinated individuals. This appears to be medically justified although we now know even vaccinated individuals can spread the virus to others. Some "breakthrough" cases also show the vaccine isn't 100% protective but does prevent the worst outcomes.
Seemingly oblivious to this, on Sept. 13, we watched a largely maskless crowd at Legends, compressed within feet of each other, cheering wildly as soon-to-be-former recall election candidate Larry Elder entered, likewise maskless. (We're vaccinated and as a precaution took a COVID test a few days later and tested negative. We hope others are as fortunate.)
Children under 12 can't be vaccinated (yet.) In our opinion, LBUSD is being bureaucratically cavalier about putting these children in reopened classroom despite an acknowledged likelihood some will be exposed to COVID-19. Worse still, as of this morning (Sept. 22), LBUSD is allowing this without even weekly COVID-19 tests ("paused" after the three weeks) with no date for resuming them pending what LBUSD calls further analysis of its data "in consultation with health officials."
We also remain dismayed that some police and firefighters, supported by their unions, continue to resist the vaccine despite their close encounters with the public.
The LB Health Dept.'s Sept. 17 Order's speaks for itself here with salient portions quoted below.
