Active COVID-19 cases are down 48.4% in the past two weeks, and hospitalizations for COVID-19 are down 14.3%, according to the Contra Costa County Health Department.

Exactly 80% of eligible Contra Costa County residents 12 years of age and older have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the health department said.

Perhaps Contra Costa County jumped the gun here requiring proof of vaccine to enter restaurants, gyms etc. I pity the businesses that are trying to survive all of these covid mandates.

Fred September 16, 2021 at 4:36 PM

So you think it’s all over do you?

KT September 16, 2021 at 4:59 PM


I agree. They should have looked at their own numbers first. Hopefully they’ll come to the conclusion that we’ve reached herd immunity and people do recover.

Bob September 16, 2021 at 5:01 PM

And yet, here we are….,.

Common Sense September 16, 2021 at 7:14 PM

If everyone would simply get vaccinated, we could get back to normal. That’s the best solution for businesses. Mandates or not, as long as the COVID numbers are high, there are some people who simply aren’t going to risk going out to places like restaurants.

Chunk September 16, 2021 at 4:16 PM

Nah, it was perfectly timed to make old joe’s mandates look like they accomplished something.

Fed UP September 16, 2021 at 4:40 PM

Yes. Vaccine and masks work. Isn’t that fantastic?
Thank goodness we’re not in Idaho where they are rationing healthcare.

Puffandstuff September 16, 2021 at 6:10 PM

I have family up there in ID right in the area that’s been in the news
COVID tents outside and the parking lots are quiet and empty
Kinda like ours were last winter

SGJ September 16, 2021 at 4:42 PM

What is the logic and rationale behind these vaccine mandates when cases are dropping dramatically? and 80% are already vaccinated?
And what about people who have had covid who have a better immune response than any vaccine and 50% more likely to have adverse effects when getting the vaccine? why?
The more they push the more everyone should think there is other reasoning than public health.

Deb Shay September 17, 2021 at 6:07 AM

Couldn’t agree more. The current mandate absolutely proves two things:

1. This is not about science but control.

2. Vaccines and masks do not work. If they did, why would the vaxxed need to be separated from the unvaxxed?

I’m more dug in than ever dug in about not getting the current useless jabs.

COVID, SMOVID. The next big scare is moon wobble.

NASA warns of a ‘moon wobble’ coming soon. Dramatic flooding could follow. (

According to a new study by the NASA Sea Level Change Science Team from the University of Hawaii, every coast in the United States will see an increase in high tides because of a “wobble” in the moon’s orbit. The team goes on to say that those high tides will kick off a “a decade of dramatic increases in flood numbers” in the 2030s.

In a USA Today report, NASA explains the correlation of global sea-level with the moon’s orbit.

“High tides get higher, and low tides get lower. Global sea-level rise pushes high tides in only one direction – higher. So half of the 18.6-year lunar cycle counteracts the effect of sea-level rise on high tides, and the other half increases the effect,” NASA explains.


What will Democrats propose to fight moon wobble?

“Tax the moon!”

“And build more windmills!!!”

AOC: “Build windmills on the moon!!!”

Anom September 16, 2021 at 4:52 PM

Exactly. So why the stricter standards?

Bob September 16, 2021 at 5:02 PM

Keep following that science

Bdpirate September 16, 2021 at 5:08 PM

This doesn’t go into effect until September 22nd although today going into a restaurant to pick up some food I was asked to show proof and I politely told them no I don’t have to show you proof of anything this hasnt start yet.

Bob Kazamakis September 16, 2021 at 7:57 PM

What restaurant?

Deb Shay September 17, 2021 at 6:09 AM

Exactly. I dont want to support this business.

Anew September 17, 2021 at 12:33 PM

This one restaurant may have jumped the gun, but all of them are struggling. If you like their food, please continue to patronize them. This is one more gut punch that they all have to cope with. Thank you Contra Costa County. You are all buffoons.

‘Joe Biden’s Angry, Divisive Vaccine Mandate Has Failed Miserably’.

And now, as the Delta wave wanes on its own (it’s already been falling rapidly in Florid for a while), the health dictators get to claim credit for it, because you can’t prove the counter factual.

I’ve already been wrong too many times to predict the next step. What’s the over under that we get another wave in a few months? Maybe if that happens, we’ll go full Australia and start segregating people into camps.

Snakekeeper September 16, 2021 at 5:52 PM

But of course it has nothing to do with wearing masks getting vaccinated

Snakekeeper September 16, 2021 at 5:56 PM

But of course it has nothing to do with wearing masks, getting vaccinated…

Puffandstuff September 16, 2021 at 6:13 PM

You’re right it doesn’t

Deb Shay September 17, 2021 at 6:10 AM

Yep. Its all about power and control.

Snakekeeper September 17, 2021 at 7:16 AM

I keep forgetting it’s got nothing to do with dead or sick people or the overwhelmed health care system in some places. But that doesn’t matter.

Janus September 17, 2021 at 12:42 PM

Apparently not –

AP dated 9/17/2021

“The mayor of San Francisco (London Breed -D) was spotted dancing and singing along to live music without a mask at an indoor nightclub, despite a strict order by her public health department that requires wearing masks at indoor establishments unless someone is actively eating or drinking.”

In August health order by San Francisco and other Bay Area counties requires people to wear “well-fitting mask indoors in public settings” regardless of vaccination status.

Pretty much undercuts the argument of wear a mask don’t you think?

Chuq September 17, 2021 at 2:57 PM

Gosh Puff, then why are we doing well and Florida is not?

Sam September 16, 2021 at 6:23 PM


Exit 12A September 16, 2021 at 6:39 PM

At this point, the unvaccinated are on yheir own. It’s up to them.
Let’s move on!

Anon September 16, 2021 at 7:38 PM

I’ve got News for you, The “unvaccinated” / Organic humand were NEVER worried about being protected.
The coming variants will be the spike proteins, myocarditis & blood clots plus the 100’s of other side effects will all be On the vaccinated.

BTW, Idaho, Nebraska & a few other States have job openings for nurses……No Vaccine Required!!!

Exit 12A September 16, 2021 at 7:59 PM

At this point, either choose or or do not choose to be vaccinated.

Sam L September 16, 2021 at 7:30 PM

Following the recall, knew more restrictions would follow. How about including a test for natural immunity the way was for a long time before vaccines?

Juan September 16, 2021 at 8:02 PM

Amazing how a failed recall election will lower covid numbers… kind of reminds you of last October… when all the Dems were scratching their heads trying to figure out how to unwind the rules after inaugurating day and not look too obvious..

And if you don’t think aunti pelosi won’t ruin a country to ensure her future President stays in office… you’re seriously confused.

Cellophane September 16, 2021 at 8:05 PM

This entire Covid charade has had nothing to do with the virus, deaths, or any other medical reason, sadly.

It is all about control and taking the power of choice away from the people.

And still the gullible march to the communistic drum.

if this isn’t what the nazis did please tell me.
Why can’t people see this and start a revolution – this has nothing to do with health and a flu that has a 99.98% survival rate and is highly treatable with well established medicines.
WAKE up amerrica!!!

Anon September 17, 2021 at 2:14 PM

Exactly. People need to stop with Even allowing any testing as the PCR is GARBAGE.

Too many will already be maimed (from the MRNA hack) or dead….so they won’t be able to help with the revolution.
The ones who have resisted this far….need to remain firm.

Snickerdad September 16, 2021 at 11:12 PM

The CCC Supervisor are just following the trend. If S F said we should all wear foil hats the keep the virus away the Supervisor would make it the latest restriction.
If these people ever thought it would be a miracle.

Sancho Panza September 17, 2021 at 11:10 AM

That’s right…they are soldiers, in lockstep! The CCC Supervisors decided to stop having their Ad-Hoc on Covid-19 and economic recovery meetings since 6-17-2021 where citizens could voice their concerns and ask questions…public participation and transparency is purposely being quashed. It’s as if they are conducting closed military tribunals against the citizens of Contra Costa County and those unvaccinated are considered combatants in this war on Covid-19!

Chris September 17, 2021 at 12:01 AM

Like I have said many times before. If a restaurant, bar, gym, or other small business asks to see my Vax info, I’ll politely ask to see theirs. I will carry my health info for the brown shirts and expect reprocicity in return. If I do not, I’ll tell them to pack sand and kiss my biden.

Exit 12A September 17, 2021 at 6:02 AM

What happened to following the “science” and herd immunity?

NK32 September 17, 2021 at 6:15 AM

If you’re paying attention than you know many of these decisions have little to do with actual facts. When the powers that be stopped shoving numbers down our throats is the exact time they were no longer of benefit to them. We are no longer (if we ever were) “following the science”. Now it’s all about power, segregation, half truths, and fear. The once generally respected CCC Heath Department is now a complete joke and as long as we keep letting them steer this ship unchecked, they are going to run it into a giant iceburg.

idiots everywhere September 17, 2021 at 7:05 AM

When is indoor mask mandate ending?

Yves Harlowe September 17, 2021 at 11:27 AM


Jeff (the other one) September 17, 2021 at 8:34 AM

well, Newsom survived the recall (no shock there), and now has announced/stated that “we need to stiffen our spines and lean in to keeping people safe and healthy. That we shouldn’t be timid in trying to protect people’s lives and mitigate the spread and transmission of this disease” and “It’s not just about the formal authority of setting the tone and tenor on vaccines and masks, but it’s the moral authority that we have.” So now, Newsom has moral authority over we citizens (illegal and legal) of California. Got that? Brace yourselves…

The Fearless Spectator September 18, 2021 at 5:47 PM

“Tone and Tenor”. Ask that Nimrod what “Timbre” is and he’ll have no idea.
Newsom is currently an authority by fiat. He is devoid of a moral compass. The terms Moral and Newsom are mutually exclusive.

SA September 17, 2021 at 10:12 AM

According to CDC’s own documents the PCR tests were not based on any NOVEL Covid-19 virus, because back at the time, the novel virus was not isolated. Instead, they used fragments of various flu viruses to create a PCR test. Today, the situation is not any different. As a Physics major, with lots of friends in the medical field, there is practically no evidence that can be found that the Covid virus has EVER been isolated anywhere around the world. So what are they testing us for? What are they vaccinating us from? It is a PLANDEMIC and they are calling any flu-like illness Covid-19 now. That’s why many countries have declared that Flu does not exist anymore.

Sancho Panza September 18, 2021 at 11:49 AM

Interesting, SA! Thanks for sharing this…

Sam L September 17, 2021 at 12:23 PM

Saw notice from gym, not only do you need to show neg test in 3 days or being vaccinated, but county says to still wear a mask the entire time!

If this makes us so safe, why the mask as well? Need better messaging.

Bob Kazamakis September 18, 2021 at 4:09 AM

That you can show a negative test result and still be required to wear a mask demonstrates that it’s not about the virus, it’s about compliance.

Chris September 17, 2021 at 1:44 PM

I believe the Dept. of Public Health should require all vaccinated people to have their Vax number tattooed on their upper left forearm. Then we can proudly display it whenever city, county, state, and Feds require our allegiance to the cause and dictators that run public policy.

Bob Kazamakis September 18, 2021 at 4:14 AM

Or maybe even on the palm of their right hand.
You wouldn’t want shirt sleeves to get in the way, plus you can extend your hand away from you (for social distancing).
I can just imagine crowds of people proudly showing off their numbers.
