As we go into the holiday weekend, it is important to remember not to let your guard down regarding COVID-19. It isn’t going away and in areas of low vaccination rates across the US and internationally, the delta variant is actually on the rise! The delta variant is already comprising of 20% of recent cases across the United States and rising. The COVID vaccine has been shown to be nearly 100% effective in preventing serious disease or death!
As California moves to fully open, I’d still encourage everyone to consider wearing a mask to err on the side of caution in highly dense public places and healthcare facilities. COVID cases in California are at an all-time low and light is at the end of the tunnel! However, there is recent news that high-risk, fully vaccinated patients have still passed away from COVID-19.
Be sure to stay hydrated and wear sun screen! Have a safe and amazing July 4th!!!
