Keep the indoor mask mandate. If people stop taking precautions, start gathering in large numbers, and not getting vaccines or boosters, another wave could strike. COVID-19 thrives in cool, dry air.


Or join the colossally pathetic portion of the populous and take ivermectin, chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine and sniff model glue. Or reverse the procedure for greater effect.


What’s the criteria for Dr. Penny B. to drop the indoor mask mandate?

Also what is the average age of the 16 hospitalized SLO county residents?
