    ... assuming they are in their car by themselves, they are social distancing. It is their personal choice, perhaps for convenience or habit, to wear their masks inside their car.

    Personally, I do not wear a mask when I am inside my car by myself.

    The issue is the approx 90% of the population who are not yet vaccinated or refuse to get vaccinated.

    Even those who do get vaccinated are at risk until their body builds up immunity over several weeks.

    Scientists aren’t surprised by the emergence of the variants and have reiterated that the currently available vaccines should still work against them, though they might not be as effective as they are against the original “wild” strain.

    Moderna said on Wednesday that it shipped doses of a booster shot that specifically targets the variant spreading in South Africa, known as the B.1.351 strain, to the National Institutes of Health.

    Here's what most of us already knew. The bootlickers are the only ones who kept it alive. You know who you are.




    Anti-Trump sentiment, not science, may be behind Dems’ school closures, liberal NY Times columnist writes

    "Many Democrats seemed to be more suspicious of in-person schooling last summer when President Donald Trump called for it," Nicholas Kristof writes

    In an opinion article published online Thursday, a top liberal columnist for The New York Times blamed Democrats for the harm being inflicted on millions of the nation’s children by a year of school closures – describing it as a "tragedy we haven’t adequately confronted."
    Writer Nicholas Kristof also suggests that many Democrats may have been blinded by animus toward former President Trump when they enacted the coronavirus-related school shutdowns.
    "Many Democrats seemed to be more suspicious of in-person schooling last summer when President Donald Trump called for it," he writes, adding, "We shouldn’t let ourselves be driven by ideology rather than science."



    He notes that at least one Democrat, Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, pushed for schools to reopen in her state, "and kids there are better off because she did."


    Elsewhere, however, millions of the nation’s schoolchildren have missed in-person learning for many months because of coronavirus mitigation policies, a situation that may result in "permanent damage" -- both to the children and the nation’s future, Kristof writes.
    "The blunt fact," he continues, "is that it is Democrats – including those who run the West Coast, from California through Oregon to Washington State – who have presided over one of the worst blows to the education of disadvantaged Americans in history."



    He also blames Democratic governors and mayors, saying they "too often let schools stay closed even as bars opened."
    Kristof then cites some of the latest findings from organizations that have been tracking the impact of school closures.



    As many as 3 million American children have had no schooling – whether in the classroom or online – for the better part of a year, Kristof adds, sharing findings from the nonprofit Bellwether Education Partners.
    He also argues that teachers who oppose returning to the classroom until after all teachers and students are vaccinated are guilty of "an abdication of responsibility to America’s children."
    Kristof writes that evidence from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the British Medical Journal and a Tulane University study all suggest that in-person schooling doesn’t pose any dangerous risks to students or teachers.
    The Times columnist’s position mirrors that of many parents around the country.
    In Los Angeles, some parents organized what they called a "Zoom blackout," demanding that they have more say in when schools reopen.

    Maybe you should check the facts before you make a fool of yourself in the future. Your math does not work. If 90% are not vaccinated that would mean that less than 10% are vaccinated which we know is true for Canada thanks to extremely bad leadership. As for the USA, according to Yahoo news 2 days ago over 17% of the adult population is already vaccinated. https://news.yahoo.com/17-us-adult-p...124144473.html

    Canada wish they had 10% of their population vaccinated. Canada is among the worst. Walk of shame.



    The cumulative percent of the population who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in Canada was 2.56%, as of February 13, 2021.
