The State of COVID-19 in D.C.: And We’re Off to the Races!

That‘s bad by the way:

For those of you keeping score at home, that’s a 77 percent increase in cases in one week. That has pushed D.C. into the moderate (“yellow”) zone–and remember that the new CDC guidelines aren’t concerned about preventing transmission, but preventing hospitals from being overwhelmed. Under the old guidelines, we would be at high transmission.

I’m starting to see a little more masking in some places, and D.C. universities are all masking now, except for Howard, which has returned to virtual instruction for the remainder of the semester.

I keep saying this, but if long COVID occurs in 1-2 percent of vaccinated people, the midterms aren’t looking good.

Completely unrelated to the previous point, every Democratic senator in a split Senate should be enforcing really rigorous testing and masking policies for their offices. We can’t lose one to COVID–and ‘lose’ includes long COVID.

    What? You know majority of Americans now want less restrictions, specially those who’ve been vaxxed and are done. It’s why youngkin won VA, because the suburbs of Fairfax and Arlington, usually blue went hard for him because families who’d listened and done everything right, vax, booster,asked, were being asked to continue to stay away from school and grandma. Mid terms will be a blood bath for Dems if they don’t lift everything. It’ll be sad to see honestly.
