Has anyone else notice that throughout the Governors entire color coded reopening plan there is no “Green” level? They will never admit but there will never be a fully “open” California as long as this [removed] is in office.

This is ridiculous... the CDC came out and admitted only 6% of deaths were purely covid, they admitted that masks don't protect you from 'smoke' particles which are LARGER than virus particles, we've had less that 400 'deaths' out of 1.6 million people in Alameda County and based on CDC %'s 6% of those would only be 100% Covid related.. who do they think they are fooling? we all know this is PURELY POLITICAL .. anyone who still believes this hoax is brainwashed.. time to take off the masks and OPEN CALIFORNIA!

Jackie C - There's been a lot of confusion around the 6% of COVID deaths being from COVID alone. I was confused (because I've lost friends to this and it just didn't sound right) so I did a bit of research. The way I understand it is most deaths from the coronavirus had causes in addition to COVID, not instead of it.

Jackie C,

The CDC said neither of those things. You've been reading political propaganda. Please wear a mask. Please get a flu shot. Please practice social distancing. If you are healthy, consider signing up for a Covid-19 vaccine trial.
