We recognize that our population is gonna surge up over the next three days over this holiday weekend. So this is the time to be cautious 20% of the acute care patients at ST Charles, our covert patients But out of the 500 plus in the hospital since March, 98% have not been vaccinated. If you look at the curves, you can see that over the last several weeks, our cases have continued to be extremely high, and that is different than the rest of the state.

Scary. We don't know who's who. Now we, you know, before everybody had to wear a mask. Now we're left wondering who's who who's coming to Earth and who isn't And that's Angel Gonzalez of the Grocery Workers Union, the Department of Labor and Industry says for vaccinated grocery workers to work Without a mask, Employers will have to verify that those employees have gotten the shots.
