Hmmmmm, two weeks after July 4th when local officials refused to close the beaches when beaches to the north and south were all closed but no way this has anything to do with the unmasked visitors.

There’s one official, Penny Borenstein. This person is supposed to be in control of decisions like that, at least we are paying her $320,000 a year to be. I went to the doctor last week with a fever, aches and a sore throat. I couldn’t get a test because our county doesn’t have enough. Only people being admitted to the hospital are getting them. Penny has to go, she’s obviously incompetent.

Good or bad, we are overpaying. Shame on the BOS for these salaries.

She’s using trumps logic less testing equals less cases which means everything can open back up which means $$. All they care about

Some good news, small UK biotech firm Synairgen has developed an experimental coronavirus drug SNG001 that helped curb the contraction of serious COVID-19 symptoms. The drug cut the odds of a patient requiring ventilation or dying by 79% compared to those receiving a placebo. See page 22.
