Covid is still dangerous and very contagious. As of Last Friday, you don’t have to wear a mask; The new cases are down to a few cases today, where it was 1035 last week. 351 people have died in Boulder County, with 11,718 deaths in Colorado, 57,808 In the hospitals, 3,922,873 are fully vaccinated but people are still getting it, but not so bad. Boulder County is one of the worst so keep those masks on (even though they say you don’t need them) You have to avoid getting COVID. We hear from folks that have had it, and they are still having many problems..-seeing. headaches, stability, etc..it is a scary disease and you should avoid it, if possible We should all stay in, stay away from crowds, wear a masks, social distance, and wash hands; Encourage all you know to get vaccinated. It is the only hope! (However, people who have full vaccination are getting it, maybe not so bad, but they are sick. Beware!
