... the three C’s of Crowded places, Closed spaces, and Close-contact settings, and areas with greater vulnerable populations: schools, universities, public transit, congregate living, health-related settings like doctor’s offices, pharmacies, grocery stores, concerts and other mass indoor event areas, indoor weddings and funerals, and stores subject to crowding during holiday shopping season. It would be good if employers recommended workplace masking during this time as well.For mask mandates to work, there needs to be strong and committed leadership from the top to ensure there is timely action and targeting, clear goals, transparent sharing of science and evidence, helpful public education, widespread and active messaging, and ongoing communication....

In the spring of 2020 most thought this would be over in 6 months. Now this. Who would have guessed . Do we just give up? Harvest the weak? Accept massive long Covid? Move on? Or do we rise to this challenge ? https://t.co/f9HO7fq6LD— Frank Graves (@VoiceOfFranky) December 11, 2022
