ALHAMBRA – ColoradoBoulevard.net:
While school is out for summer and families look to spend quality time with friends and family, COVID-19 seems to have re-emerged in a new variant form. The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health reports a sharp increase in positive test results over the last week topping 5,000 per day. Hospitalizations are back up too, currently at about 900.

This means COVID-19 still lingers in our midst. As much as we have enjoyed the freedom of not having to wear masks, and our children, while on summer vacation are no longer taking weekly COVID tests, we clearly cannot rely on wishful thinking to avoid the ill effects of COVID-19. Now is the time for prevention ahead of the new school year. If you have not yet done so, you should vaccinate. If you have, then it may be time for a boost. This goes for children, young adults of all ages (this means you). And – in case you missed it, younger children are also now eligible for a vaccination!
