  1. Steve, check out the viral loads for Delta variant if you want to understand why the talk of masks. Also , non vaccinated people have stopped wearing masks, because they can’t get or transmit the virus.

  2. Also, PGA golf professional John Rham has tested positive again for the virus and has withdrawn from the Olympics. After having to withdraw from the U.S. Open previously, while in the lead. He has been fully vaccinated and has tested positive for the virus twice before this. Yeah, this all makes sense. Oh, and Fauci wants vaccinated people to start wearing masks again. 🤷‍♂️😆

  3. The Governor keeps telling us we have a right to decide for ourselves how to deal with the pandemic, yet they refuse to provide us the necessary infection data to make our own decisions. I get the feeling the powers that be don’t really want us to make our own determinations as to what is best for us nor are they concerned with our health.

  4. CDC has just announced they will revoke the emergency use authorization of the RT-PCR tests first introduced in 2/20.

    “CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS CoV-2 and influenza viruses.”
