Los Angeles County Wants Non-Essential Activities Postponed Due To Omicron

Los Angeles County Wants Non-Essential Activities Postponed Due To Omicron

..but mostly pandemic policy failures.

In Los Angeles County, “2 weeks to flatten the curve” may turn into 2 years.

The combination of policies that have been largely ineffective against an airborne virus likely engineered to adhere to the human respiratory system, a new variant that has become more transmissible, and an steep rises in cases, Los Angeles County health officials are doubling down on their failures.

As an unprecedented wave of coronavirus infections washes over the region, Los Angeles County health officials are urging residents to postpone nonessential gatherings and avoid some activities — especially those with people who are unmasked, unvaccinated or at higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness.

The ask comes just ahead of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend. The Lunar New Year is also right around the corner on Feb. 1, and the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood is a month away.

Speaking to the L.A. County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer acknowledged that “this is not the start to the new year we had all envisioned.”

But given the state of the pandemic, health officials are “asking that, over the next few weeks, we all try to avoid nonessential activities where people are unmasked and in close contact with others,” she said.

Ferrer is now emphasizing “high quality masks” as if they will be help contain the spread. There was an acknowledgment that the vaccinated and the boosted should also be following these rules.

“While we’re in the surge, we do ask that you exercise more caution, even if you’re vaccinated and boosted,” Ferrer said. “One way to reduce transmission is to wear a high-quality mask whenever you’re around non- household members…We’re also asking that over the next few weeks, we all try to avoid non-essential activities where people are unmasked and in close contact with others.

“We know how important getting together with friends is to our wellbeing. We need to be sure we’re able to keep each other safe. The reality is that parties and events — especially those indoors with unvaccinated individuals or those at high risk for severe illness — make it very easy for this virus to spread. Limiting our time with others to those more essential work-related or school-related activities is a prudent action for everyone to take whenever possible.”

On the positive note, there is a recognition by the Los Angeles officials that Omicron is a milder variant. Additionally, there the numbers of people hospitalized with COVID is separated from those getting treatment because of the infection.

Dr. Christina Ghaly, the county’s health services director, said that despite rising patient numbers, the Omicron-fueled surge is playing out differently in hospitals than earlier surges. She said last fall, about one-third of COVID patients wound up in ICU care, but that number is only about 10% to 15% this time around, at least in the four county-operated hospitals, which likely reflect conditions in other medical centers.

She also said that about 40% of COVID-positive patients at the county hospitals were admitted specifically because of the virus, while the rest only learned they were infected upon admission for something else. During the last surge, 80% to 90% of the COVID patients were admitted due to virus-related illness.

There are reports that the NFL is looking into emergency sites for Super Bowl 2022, schedule to take place at LI’s SoFo stadium on February 13. Perhaps the desire to keep event in the city is halting the lockdown mania the region has experienced almost continuously since March of 2020?

California officials say they have no intention of losing Super Bowl LVI despite reports that the NFL is looking into contingency sites amid the city’s coronavirus surge.

The Super Bowl is scheduled to take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, on Feb. 13. But reports came out Wednesday that other sites, including AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas, were being contacted about their potential availability.

AT&T Stadium, which is home to the Dallas Cowboys, did in fact host the Rose Bowl in 2021, after COVID-19 restrictions forced it to move from Pasadena.

But, at least for now, fans are being told to stay calm and plan on a great Super Bowl, in Los Angeles.

However, after the game ends, who knows what policy failure they will expand upon!

This is not the killer disease the early fear mongers warned us of and for most of the population COVID-19 was never more than a middling-to-bad case of the flu, and the so-called Delta variant, while more easily spread was less virulent and was likened to a bad cold or mild flu in severity. The so-called Omicron variant is even less virulent and I wonder if most people would even know they had it unless they were hypochondriacs and got tested every time they coughed. None of which means that respiratory infections should be ignored or not taken seriously.

The so-called vaccines never resulted in immunity to COVID-19. At best, they may have reduced the duration and severity of an infection with the original virus and maybe with the Delta variant. All the data now suggests no effectiveness against the milder Omicron variant.

Data from the UK and EU show that “boosters” consisting of smaller doses of the original so-called vaccines may actually damage immune systems, resulting in the increasing incidence of vaccinated people getting sick, being hospitalized and even dying. That’s why the EU has backed off plans to require boosters to protect against Omicron.

These people need to simply accept that it’s over. The whole rationale for mandating ‘social distancing’ and so-called vaccines is done. The number of “cases” does not necessarily reflect “sick people.”

These so-called public health experts are perpetrating a terrible fraud on the people and it needs to stop.

LA County’s version of Cruella Deville is not a medical doctor–and she can go as a witch to a Halloween Party without even changing her makeup or clothes. Time for her to just go away.

    Forget her lack of scientific qualifications, does she even look like someone who should be a Public Health Director? That woman is only 54 years old yet looks 80. Probably lives on a diet of a single slice of unbuttered toast for lunch. Her meetings with the LA County Board of Supervisors are tedious exercises of self-congratulation and self-praise ending in the latest circumlocution taking us from good news to the latest warning of an impending shutdown. These people are batshit crazy.

Los Angles has made itself non essential. Last one out please turn off the lights.

Beware that the sudden appearance of common sense (such as making the distinction between those in hospital with COVID and those in hospital for COVID) is part of a program to increase the Dem’s chances of hanging on to power in the mid-terms, and is also meant to improve Biden’s numbers with respect to pandemic response. Why else would they wait until now to suddenly begin talking (at least some small amount of) sense?

Ferrer in her draconian edicts that are not based in science makes Fauci look like a libertarian by comparison You don’t stop an air born virus with vaccines but rather with therapeutics

And what is more non-essential than the Super Bowl? The NFL is prepared to move it to Texas on a moments notice. They ought to just go ahead since they are running out of time.

All the wisdom that a degree in social work is capable of imparting.

So just to be clear.

The peasants are required to postpone ‘non-essential activity’, while ‘vaccinated’ health care workers can literally go to work covid positive.

“…non-essential activities postponed…”

Like putting a useless piece of paper or cloth over your face?
