The “brain-dead” Humboldt County Fair Association agreed Monday to move forward with plans for this year’s Humboldt County Fair in Ferndale despite a steep increase in local cases of “Delta COVID- 19”. WTF!
During an emergency meeting, Humboldt County Public Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman underscored the need to enforce the masking order both indoors and outdoors for all individuals regardless of vaccination status. “ We’re in the midst of the worst numbers we’ve seen yet in the pandemic,” he said. “We couldn’t have known all of the details of this because a lot of this is being driven by the delta variant that is spreading much more rapidly than the previous variants, including spread among fully vaccinated people to a certain degree, although that’s not the primary driver. Spread is still being driven almost entirely by those who are unvaccinated.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s current recommendation for large-scale events in communities with high transmission of the virus is to implement multiple layers of protection — such as proof of vaccination, a negative test, social distancing and masking — or to postpone or cancel the event.
“Currently, Humboldt County is not requiring any events to be canceled or postponed, we are leaving it up to each of the individual organizers to look at the information and make a decision as to what makes the most sense for their organization,……oops!
