I can still get it even though I've had the vaccine. I personally don't care if I get it, but I'd be damned if I spread it to someone and they spread it to one of their elderly family members or young child!

I’d rather be extra cautious than sick. We are vaccinated but as we learned, you can still get COVID when you are vaxxed but won’t end up in the hospital. It still is a horrible experience

Just look at our hospitals. Do you want them to be there if you need them? Or, should they be full of people that had a 99.7% chance of not being there by getting a free shot. It simply speaks for the fact that our education systems fail to teach us to think for ourselves.

All of you anti vaxxers and anti maskers, you feel the same way about seatbelts?

As a front line caregiver I remain astounded by the ability of this virus to outwit us at every turn. Despite abysmal national leadership from the get go, we did a stellar job in Oregon in keeping it at bay, but allowing it to spread nationally created the far less forgiving variants.

I've had the vaccine but am not sure it covers the variant?

Done all I can do, got the shots, avoid prolonged close contact with the public and if I happen to get it, I just get it. It is just another of the growing number of deadly threats one collects as we get older. And as a 70+ I have a lot of them, but worrying about them isn't one of them.

Anything that will keep the proper level of paranoia alive and well is the governments objective to ensure more control.

Does anyone want to explain how they know that the Delta variant is more contagious when they only have one generic test that test for covid or no covid. They aren't testing for different strands. Someone explain this.

I assume the tests are not free to anyone. I assume only those who have been exposed are being tested. Of those only 4.1% are positive so in other words 95.9 percent of those exposed become infected and some of those have been vaccinated. So what the heck is all the clamor to get vaccinated about?

Its just a gimmick. Like using the term new and improved to relabel a product. People are fed up with hearing about COVID and are starting to tern a deaf ear to it. This "Delta" is just a gimmick to try and get them to listen again. But people are not buying it.

I am not concerned about the Delta variant. How many variants have we had now? There have been 11 so far. I am worried about the future variant that becomes far more deadly than any so far. Will those responsible for the death of millions be held accountable?

Kids spend way too much time on phones. They need to concentrate on reading, writing and arithment which schools need to go back to teaching. I believe social media has harmed our children.

There are so many families who can't afford to pay for lunches whether it is hot or cold. I think this is going to be so helpful. ❤️

I believe that since it is from our tax money and property taxes that all should be able to go eat for free

Why give all the free meals to the ungrateful bums that live of free handouts but refuse to work for it. Feed our kids.
