3:38 pm
that's less than one case per 100,000 residents per day. we're going to have to earn that. through continuing to do all the things we know how to do to prevent transmission. >> you know what that means. mask-up stay socially distant the cdc says fully vaccinated people can gather indoors with other vaccinated. people. everyone else needs to avoid doctor willis is concerned that more people are traveling leaving the county and the state which brings the threat of more infectious variance. >> closer to home. the next 4 weeks i see is as critical for us. california has been relatively spared thus far but other places michigan, new jersey, other parts of the united states are seeing increases in case rates due to this variant. we're close. you know, again, half of our residents vaccinated with the next over the next 4 weeks of can get enough of us vaccinated will be able to dodge that. my hope is that we'll be of actually prevent that vary from really getting a foothold in our communities.
