You may be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, but some family members, such as children too young to get vaccinated, still need to be protected. If your child is 2 years and older, make sure that your child wears a mask in public settings. To set an example, you also might choose to wear a mask.

Did you know? CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) uses U.S. census data on categories like poverty, housing, and vehicle access to estimate a community’s ability to respond to and recover from disease outbreaks like COVID-19.

New maps on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker show the overlap between the percent of the population fully vaccinated and SVI at the county level. This helps provide insight on a community’s vulnerability to COVID-19.

When are you going to allow Veterans to be buried with Veteran honors (color guard, taps, carriage ride to grave site)? My Korean War veteran father died last week, and is awaiting burial due to your absurd restrictions.

You must start to question the media due to the weapon Russia and China are deploying all over the world. The enemies are not invisible. They are Russia, China, North Korea and some Middle Eastern governments. The Russian and Chinese armies are in the United States Deploying these weapons. Not all Russians and not all Chinese who live here are part of this deployment obviously. There are even Americans who have joined the Russian army to help them deploy these weapons. There were two Americans who deployed this weapon on me in Maine: Martin Thompson, and Kevin Thompson. When I moved to Brooklyn, NY they went in the apartment above and next to mine with asking two other American operatives who were pro Putin to join them in this weapons deployment: Zack Howard 281 23rd St. Apt. 3 BKNY 11215, and Tom Blazsek apt. next door to me in the basement. The Thompsons even followed me to Washington DC on several occasions when I tried to contact Intelligence about these weapons. The weapon is the most dangerous weapon ever created because it subjects people to the will of an operative's wireless device by sending signals that an infected person will believe to be his own thoughts. They can also horrifically torture you with this device which is what happened to me. There is no covid 19 virus. There is only an emf powered microchip weapons deployment which causes hospitalizations and death. The gas which helps the body not reject foreign particles in the blood stream simulates pneumonia in some people and infecting people causes fevers in some people. Russia and China governments created disinformation by blaming this on a global pandemic and not a global attack on free nations. Don't test for covid 19 or give blood. Testing and giving blood are ways the Russian and Chinese government have been deploying this weapon. To test for tainted testing equipment subject testing equipment to an electromagnetic field for a few hours and you should see a moving particle which has reacted to the field. This would prove that the tests are deploying a biological weapon which is not a virus. The only way to find out if the bio weapon has infected you is to subject a blood sample to an electromagnetic field for a few hours and look for a moving particle under a microscope. See davestilman8 instagram. Please note first responders are primary targets of a weapon that enables mind control and infiltration into scientific and medical communities is so pervasive it will be hard to test for these microchips at traditional hospitals and laboratories. davestilman8 instagram

Now she is late 60's still working in the nursing home, 29 people in the nursing home have COVID-19, she hasn't caught it, only one person died (better medical care in Cali??), but I am wondering if because she had SARs, that is why she hasn't caught COVID-19
