Dr. Bonnie Henry will provide more details next week in COVID-19 briefing on when order will take effect changing policy to now require children 5 and older to wear masks in indoor public settings to align with the school mask wearing requirement. #bcpoli
Just got home from 2 & half week electric road trip, France and Spain. Had great time + some micro crises but none related to charging. Noticed very obvious lack of fuel and supermarket shortages, and hugely lower C19 infection rates, and everyone wears masks indoors. Everyone.
Despite taking heat after first fully packed football game on 9/3, learned at VaTech meeting today that after the game: > student Covid cases actually FELL > No gain in NoVa (fans) either > it was actually the peak Covid day > no masks in dorms either Good data points.
A remarkable no. of people seem to be increasingly exempt from wearing #masks on public transport. Main concern: vulnerable groups whose lives now compromised cos so many say wearing mask is a ‘bit uncomfortable’. What happened to #inclusion & considering others? #covid
