Why should anyone in Contra Costa County listen to anything Anna Roth and Chris Farnitano say now or ever again? These two people act like the king and queen of the county and seem to want COVID restrictions to last forever in a sorry attempt to keep their ability to control people's lives.

"H" has it exactly right. I have been logging and charting the CoCo Health Dept. Covid data since 3/25/20. In the face of the waning cases here, Farnitano and Roth have "Implemented" this policy of having restaurants and coffee shops "ask for your papers" (aka your vax card) as a precondition of being able to serve you. They have gone to war with In N' Out Burger, who have thankfully told them to shove it! Yesterday, the county reported just 37 "new cases." In a county with more than one million residents, we have 18 people in the ICU "ostensibly there" by reason of Covid. Like a lot of other places with these kinds of "leaders," it appears that having to show your "vax card," is simply an artifice to try and claim some sort of praise for "stopping the virus" here. Furthermore, over the going on nearly two years of their efforts, it seems strange that they have never mounted any sort of "attack" on the communities within the County that have been the "wellspring" of the infections. Today, if it were not for Antioch, Pittsburg, Oakley and Richmond the pandemic would be over. Day after day, these communities, for whatever reason, have contributed an inordinate caseload. As of yesterday, the countywide infection rate is 8,578 cases per 100,000 residents. Antioch,12,883; Pittsburg, 12705; Oakley, 12,172; & Richmond,11,401. contrast that with Pleasant Hill (where they have closed the In N' Out Burger for non-compliance), the number is 4,805 ( about half the countywide number). Personally, I will never vote for my County Supervisor again for being lead around by the nose by these "medical professionals." And as far as Roth and Farnitano are concerned, we can do far better with new people in their positions.
