This is actually really scary... since it seems the virus is smarter than previously thought.

Everyone has been wearing masks in SF for the past year (and everyone still does)--even outdoors, walking around in uncrowded conditions, or out hiking in nature, let alone indoors in public places.  And I do mean everyone.  There are no anti-masker MAGAts around.  And everyone has gotten vaccinated at their first possible opportunity.

Turns out those things work.  Who knew?

"Nearly 80% of San Francisco residents eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine have received at least one shot, according to data from the city's health department, and 68% are fully vaccinated."

I wonder if they class the unhoused as "eligible residents"

The low numbers in SF (13-14) inspired me to check the daily cases here in Ottawa (the one in Ontario, not the 4 in the US) and I found there were 20 cases day, but one recent day, they removed 21 cases from the list to add only 20, so technically the daily number of cases was down by one (-1).

This is good news.

Like SF, Ottawa is a city, not totally full of MAGATs, and with a relatively young, intelligent, well-paid and educated population. It also has lots of bike paths and green spaces for walking, hiking, jogging and biking.

A lot of people have not been wearing masks outdoors, but with low case numbers, maybe they don't need to wear them if they are not among the vulnerable demographics.

My native province has a push on for 75% vaccination and 72% have been vaccinated at least once, so maybe soon I will be able to go home again. No deaths among my close relations, but of the 44 deaths in the province, there have been some among my super-distant cousins, but that is true of Maine and many other places because my super-distant cousins are essentialy everybody who hasn't been living in, say, Kentucky, for the last four hundred years.

I don't know about SF, but here the homeless are way up the lists of people to be vaccinated first, as are Canadian first nations and other vulnerable populations. The thing about the homeless is that they are fairly easy to see and to round up with street nurses and police.

The idea of street nurses suggests an edgy TV show about nurses who live and fight disease and crime on the streets. But most of them work in shelters or other institutions in which the homeless are often found. Some of the patients I saw or heard when I was in the hospital were pretty rough and probably not members of the working classes proper. They had to call the security people a number of times, although mostly everything was very well run and went swimmingly.

Yeah I live here too. I don't know what 'everyone' means to you but in real people math that means about... 65%. In Marin its like 50... tops.

My wife lives in San Rafael and I went out to see her and number of times. It always looked to me that most people wear mask compliant. But I don't know all of Marin County. I thought they were pretty progressive. No?

??????????

That is not my experience at all.  Other than some tourists, I haven't really seen anybody in SF not wearing masks in public.  Though outdoors at least, it's backed down to just a majority (rather than pretty much everyone) outdoors over the past few weeks as everyone gets vaccinated, but still 100% indoors in public places (except while eating or drinking, obviously).

Isn't that the county that was originally anti-vax because "natural" and not so much because Trump told them to be?

Just north of San Francisco is Marin County which is packed with essential oil, anti-vax moms.

We can now equate the high levels of vaccination with the low number of children in San-Francisco.  It clearly causes infertility!
