Here we go again, why not double down on a population that has been for the most part uninformed, lazy, and compliant. After all, the Rebate vote in September is upon us, not to mention November 2022 election, and for those dates the Democrats need to insure Mail-In ballot voting to better control the outcome. Worked once, their logical is that it will work again. It’s been over a year and a half and we now have the ‘Science’ to show that the face diaper does nothing except give you rashes and higher levels of CO2. This plan is never going to go away, it works too well. Too many elites are many more money then they ever imagined. The fear porn provided by the Democrats is keeping them in power and distracting others from the truth. I know Liberals are going hate me for using the word, but here it is: May God help us all.

This is wrong and this is misinformation. Pleasanton Weekly please take notice.

No Bob, misinformation (manipulative language) means it opposes your talking points- doesn’t mean it’s wrong. You Democrats really love censoring people, because you fear being on the wrong side of history.

No, Jake Waters,

You are spreading falsehoods that could put people in danger. This has nothing to do with politics.

BobB is completely correct. The only safe way for one to be in public is by wearing both an N95 mask, surgical mask AND face shield to even come close to shielding the wearer as well as those around them from spreading any possible pathogens.

Becuz it’s syense.

John Hopkins has public reports on new cases. Their data shows that from Jun 1, 2021 to July 15, 2021 that the European countries with the highest vaccine rates, i.e. the greatest percentage of persons in the countries that have been vaccinated, are experiencing the highest number of new cases.

One would intuitively reason that the populations with the highest percentage of vaccinated persons would experience the lowest percentage of growth in new cases. That's not what the John Hopkins report shows however.

Have you forgotten that over 600K have died from Covid? And do you know that the current Delta variant spreading is more contagious?
Did you ever noticed that doctors have always wore masks while performing surgery?
Do you get all your facts from seating in front of your favorite TV news show?
I believe you need to diversified the information you are taking in on this subject, it will help you think more logically.
Covid has effected many, lives have been lost, and many have suffered financially.
All politicians have had a difficult time dealing with this unknown event that we have gone through. Informing citizens to be careful because of what current hospital stats show is ok.

Hope you are praying to your God for all of us that may need his help.
Take care of yourself and family, and don't forget to love all your neighbors!

In this article:
"State officials have also been hesitant, for now, to re-issue mask and social distancing requirements statewide, instead deferring to local health agencies to do what they feel suits their constituents."

Of course because of all the backlash they would get. It's a political hot potato because there are strong opinions on both sides.

This Delta variant makes it even more important to guard yourself against the COVID infection. For those holding out on vaccinations, for what ever reason, you may want to rethink your position.

If you want to take it take it, if not do not. It is very simple. Do your own research. The government and cdc have issued very conflicting information. Some might ever be classified as "misinformation", the new buzzword. Think for yourself and decide yourself. Let Darwin's theory do its work.
