To our members:
Before we get into the Delta variant, a reminder that SJDA’s public meeting is this Friday, Aug. 13, 8:15 a.m. via Zoom where we will be giving a frank assessment of our Stabilization Plan one year later. Log in details are under this week’s Table of Contents.
Most of COVID-19 news reports from this week are about the continued rise and worry across America regarding the Delta variant. Reviewing the reports, we quickly can understand why Santa Clara County mandates that masks are worn indoors again in public settings.
Gov. Newsom issued a mandate that all education staff in the state either get vaccinated or subject themselves to weekly testing. The City of San Jose will impose the same requirement for their employees starting Aug. 23.
Our core messages remain the same: Get vaccinated. Wear a mask. Wash your hands regularly. Stay safe.
SCCfreevax.org has information on how to get vaccinated or tested for COVID-19 in Santa Clara County. In downtown, the Jazz Festival will have a vaccination location Saturday, Aug. 14 from 2-8 pm at 1 Paseo de San Antonio, just across from Plaza de Cesar Chavez, outside the gated area, so free to all.
Keep yourself, families, friends, employees and customers safe.
