I dont think this county does enough to educate the hispanic culture. I see huge parties every weekend, no one wearing masks. In no way saying thats the reason for numbers staying high.

I sure hope that fate ends this virus soon as possible and that “death stops traveling”.

Random thought

With SLO county currently running a national ad campaign promoting east coast visitors I don’t think you’ll get your wish. Stop the traveling and you stop the death.

Yeah the 80 and 90 year olds that are dying here from COVID, while living in nursing homes need to stop their vigilant traveling.

News flash, if you are unhealthy and for that matter extremely unhealthy and catch COVID you have a chance of dying. If you were healthy before contacting COVID, you will survive, with little to no symptoms or illness. Let’s see, 3,000+ people I. Our county contacted the virus and we have 23 deaths, so that’s about .6 percent death rate.

Stay scared……

How quick we forget about the old world travels to the new world. All we had to do was sneeze to take out a culture. If terrestrial travel is a concern today, just wait to see what can happen if we go to some other planet and return. Be grateful if you can stay close to home.

Something never discussed: At this rate Social Security may become fundable in the future. Just saying.
