"At a pride event in Helena. So let's do it. Let's continue to fight for our rights, Montana, and I will make sure that I continue to fight as hard as you continue to fight for everybody else. Marcus and another unnamed plaintiff argue the law violates their state constitutional rights to privacy and equal protection. In May, a judge temporarily blocked the law while the case is hashed out in court. But the state health department didn't return to their previous practice. Instead, enacting a new rule that effectively banned trans people from changing their birth certificates. Judge Michael Moses, whose presiding over the case was not happy at a recent hearing after the rule was put in place. If we are simply going to circumvent orders of the court for the court finds, preliminarily, a violation of the constitution, that's not what justice is all about. The health department now says it intends to comply, but disagrees with the order. The same week another state court partially struck down the other law, which bans trans montanans from competing in women's school sports. The judge found it violates the state university system's right to regulate higher education, but the law still stands for K through 12 trans student athletes. The losses have increased tension between Montana Republicans and the state's judiciary. State senator Greg hertz called the order blocking the birth certificate rule judicial activism. He said judges aligning themselves with Democrats continues to be a constant theme. Republicans dominate Montana's legislature and executive branch and consistently point to the judicial branch as a roadblock to their priorities. It looks as if they may not be following all their rules and they're not following state statutes. So do we let them continue to do that? Montana's next legislative session begins

You're listening to Bloomberg business of sports from Bloomberg radio. This is the Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports on Michael Barr. I'm scarlet fu. Now, if you're not familiar with the name John texter, you ought to be. Because a year ago, he was just a fan of soccer or football as it's called overseas. Now he's looking to change the entire landscape of the sport. You know, I do think football's sort of broken by money. I don't say that in a political way. It's just the reality. You've got leagues in different parts of the world where there's three strong teams, two strong teams. And there's everybody else. You've got long seasons where the result is known for in advance. Which of the top three teams is going to win this year. What fun is that? That is the voice of John texter, just a year ago, he was a mere fan of soccer or football. Now, he owns clubs from London to Rio and he's looking for more. Bloomberg's David hellyer recently spoke to John texar about his plans and he joins us now for some insight on that conversation. And where exactly this soccer empire may be headed. David, welcome to the Bloomberg business of sports show. Tell us a little bit about what his portfolio looks like. How many soccer clubs does he own? Well, don't text her. He's got four interests for football teams. That he's involved in. He started off with an interesting team in South London, Crystal Palace. They've never won any major trophies, but they've got a kind of hipster image Premier League, so they're in the big league. And a year ago, he bought a stake in Crystal Palace for around a $100 million. He then fired that up by buying a team in Belgium, art deputy Mullen beak, which was a small investment in terms of money, but probably quite a bit in terms of time because every team does take up and owners time. And then he went further a fail to Brazil, which is a great place for the players, but it's a bit of a mess financially, and he bought one of the historical clubs there, but a fogo, and that was a huge commitment because including debts, which he takes on to pay back. It's around 300 million, and then he surprised everybody, but particularly the French media by taking over Olympic Lyonnais. When everyone assumed it was going to be another buyer was in the front running, but text the one the auction in the end. So he's got four. I mean, really, really fast paced acquisitions. What amazes me, this isn't like, okay, I got a lifelong plan. He just started this 12 months ago and he went from football fan to now being one of the sport's biggest investors. That little time frame amazes me. Yeah, it's both amazing and potentially concerning because he doesn't appear to have anybody in his locker room that can head the head the function of putting those teams together. So he's doing a lot of this himself. He did have an executive who was heading up the Olympic Leone deal Tom glick, but he's now gone to Chelsea football club, so he lost him. Sometimes I'm thinking to myself, you know, how's he got the time to do this? It's incredible. But it's very quick. But on the other hand, I think his interest in football has been several years old now. Before all this, he ran a big academy in Florida, which is a different scale, but he's always been very interested, not always, but last few years. He's been very interested in football and the development of players. Yeah, but American soccer and global football are two totally different things. What is the logic behind him amassing all these stakes in these different football clubs? I mean, what kind of synergies does he envision, owning these different football clubs would create? He's kind of in doing this. He's following a bit of a trend that there's a number of Florida based financiers that I've written about for Bloomberg have been doing the same. And what they sort of argue is that if you buy one football club in Europe, you are hostage to fortune, they could be relegated, they can all their players might leave. It's a very volatile situation. So if you buy three or four football clubs is what they argue. Number one you don't have so much volatility because if one is doing badly, another one might be doing well. The second thing is that you can trade players through the group. So you might have an experienced player that can play for one team in the group or for their reserve team. Or you might have a very experienced player that you need another part of the group. And text thinks this is a very efficient way of developing players. And so to the other groups that do this. Diversification and asset swaps. Yep. And there are a couple of other ways in which this model could be efficient. A lot of the owners they talk about the use of data analytics to do all things from

Dr. Caitlin Bernard Did Not Report Rape of 10-Year-Old to Authorities
"And some big questions being raised about the ten year olds. It turns out there was a ten year old child raped. There was a ten year old child who had to travel to Indiana. I guess on her doctor's orders and I'm hoping there's a lot of scrutiny about this Ohio doctor. This Caitlin would ever her name is because number one reportedly the doctor did not report the rape to the authorities to child protective services to the police as she's required to do as a medical doctor and number two, the reporting out of Ohio suggests that the rapist is a Guatemalan illegal. Here's Jesse watters last night on Fox News pointing out the obvious. Ohio detectives did their part, but there's still a lot of unanswered questions. Besides the girl not needing to cross state lines to Indiana for the abortion and whether the alleged rapist immigration status played any role in the cover up. Caitlin Bernard, the abortion Doctor Who performed the operation in Indiana, has a legal requirement to report the abortion to both child services and the state's health department because a ten year old isn't able to give consent and is therefore a rape victim. And from what we can find out so far, this Indian abortion doctor has covered this up. Failure to report is nothing new though for doctor Bernard. According to reporting from PJ media, she has a history of failing to report child abuse cases. And our sources as trace mentioned are telling Fox that doctor Bernard's employer, Indiana University health, has already filed a HIPAA violation against her. So is a criminal charge next. And will doctor Bernard lose her license?

In the weeks since an investigation by New York attorney general the tissue James Sighted the state Health Department for misrepresenting the number of covert 19 deaths among nursing home residents, The picture has become even more dire. Following a lawsuit filed by the Albany based Think tank, the Empire Center. Ah, judge ordered the state to release more details on how the pandemic struck those facilities. And while the state dropped some new data of the weekend, there is still a lot we do not know. Joining us now to discuss is the Empire Center. Senior fellow for Health Policy. Bill Hammond, Bill, welcome back to WN my C. I think I'm glad to be here. Can you tell us what this new data that the state released adds to what we already knew about the scope of coronavirus nests in nursing homes in New York, said in response to the attorney general's lawsuit. The commissioner Put out a statewide totals. Study included about 4000 additional deaths that we didn't know about before. That where residents of nursing homes have been transferred to hospitals. What came out over the weekend was a breakdown of where the residents lived both in terms of individual nursing homes and the counties where those homes are In addition, they did. A similar reveal relating to adult care facilities and assisted living facilities is their places that provide non medical support for their residents. And that was another 1500 people who had died while in hospitals. Are there any trends in that data? Does it show that corner virus cases of hit nursing homes and any one particular area more? Are they scatter around the state, or they're hot spots with with a lot of people dying. Well, we knew this was bad in nursing homes, and now we know it was about 50 or 60%. Worse than we realized in terms of regional hot spots. I haven't actually had the chance to make any kind of calculation of that. The big picture is that the spring wave was concentrated down state and the winter wave was more severe upstate. I'm expecting that these additional deaths Will follow that same pattern. But I can't really say because I haven't looked at that. We should note, too, that the State Health Department did not release this information voluntarily. It released the data after the Empire Center filed a lawsuit over Freedom of Information Act request on after the investigation by the state attorney general's office. So given that, um Is there more information out there that we just don't know yet about the fuller picture of how a nursing homes handled the pandemic. Well in broad terms. What they've given out is cumulative total throughout the pandemic. And my request also asked for the daily tallies in each nursing home on each day. That's a lot of detail. It doesn't necessarily contain any Huge new revelations. But it would give us the ability to see how the Pandemic progressed over time and potentially to examine the impact of specific decisions and policies and developments that happened which is important if you want to understand the best practices if you want to know things not to do the next time we're in a situation like this. Can you speak more about that? How does the state's apparent reluctance to release this kind of data affect our ability, Tonto stand and respond to the pandemic. Well, we should not have had to have this fight. This was pretty basic information. The analogy I've been drawing is if the NYPD suddenly decided to report on Lee crimes that happened during the week. And then when this was discovered, and people said, Well, can you give us the numbers for the weekend? And they said, Well, we're reconciling that data will get back to you in a year. I don't think anybody would stand for that. This. This was information there was intense public interest. And the Health Department, the agency that's supposed to be guiding us through the pandemic. Was refusing to release public information. They should have been putting it out proactively and then, in addition to holding back this data, they were saying things that were misleading. They would often say that the state's record compared to other states was good, and that was based on partial data, and it turned out to be false. And I don't want to take the Legislature of the hook. Either. They empowered the governor to run things during this pandemic, and then they have not adequately challenged him to the full extent of their abilities. You have to have a high ranking elected officials who are going to play by the rules. Um, if you have somebody who's unwilling to abide by those norms, I'm not sure there's any system. It's going to corral them. Bill Hammond is senior fellow for health policy at the Empire Center. Thank you so much for joining US Bill. It's been a pleasure. State Health Department spokesman says they are still finalizing the freedom of information response and updating publicly facing data online at the same time. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Audie Cornish. President Biden wants to reopen schools across the country within his 1st 100 days in office, so he's already signed executive actions to free up funding and increase PPE and testing for school district's This week, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to release new guidelines about how schools can reopen safely. So how are teachers feeling about all this when we brought a few of them together to ask three teachers from very different district's very different situations? Maxie Hollingsworth in Houston just returned to her classroom and this was after teaching remotely since last spring. God, it was good to see the kids, but it's not the same because I'm constantly telling Retaken during first grade in second grade, you know, Pulled U mass weepy pinch here. You know, it's their masks are too big. They're loose. They don't fit properly. They pulled down their master call for sneeze like Reinhold teaches special education in Davenport, Iowa, and he's physically in the classroom, but his students cycle through virtual in person and hybrid of the two relearning how to gauge understanding through a virtual format. Is a new challenge. Learning how to motivate students to make sure that they're completing work is a very big challenges. Well, I mean, we're changing the mindset on how teaching works. Pam Garrety in Baltimore is still teaching remotely for now. So she and her colleagues have had to improvise. There are teachers who are meeting with kids and cars with their parents, one parking space away talking to the kids through car windows to try to help. The kids were still doing what we were doing before were just a lot more creative about it. And the thing they're all thinking about. Vaccines. I asked them about comments made last week by the director of the CDC, Dr Rochelle Walensky. She said that schools can safely reopened without teachers getting vaccinated. Maxie Hollingsworth from Houston started off the conversation. I was livid when I saw that I was livid. I mean, how dare she? Everyone is saying that schools must re open. But teachers are not the prior priority for vaccines that is insane. Well, she was essentially arguing that mass wearing social distancing that there are mitigation efforts that make it possible for schools to be open. But I wanted to put that to you because you can't get higher than the CDC director. Right you can you hear in the classroom Because here's the reality. The reality is this. We still have cases. My entire fifth grade was out last week. Half of the fourth grade students were out last week. Half the third grade students left where I last weekend one full kindergarten class was at last week, so you can't tell me The teachers don't need to be vaccinated and they were out because of the threat of cove it or you're not saying those were active cables were active covert cases that we were out. So if we're shutting down half the school For cases like that. You can't tell me that it doesn't make sense for us to be priority, and we're not here in Texas. I live in Texas, where teachers are not priority. But the governor has been demanding that school's fully reopened and I think what I would say just jumping off. Your last point here is I can almost understand where the CDC director is coming from. But we cannot with 100% in person learning. We cannot guarantee 6 ft. Distancing. We cannot guarantee the mass. I mean, if you've ever been in a kindergarten classroom They don't know where to throw tissues, you know, throw him in the trash can much less to keep the mask on their face. 100% of the time. Pam, can I hear from you? Because you teach older kids? Yeah, that's I mean, I wish the kids would just follow instructions. We have so many, You know, young adults who believe they're adults. So they're going to do what they want to do, Regardless, But my school has over 1400 students. So how do we navigate even just transitioning in hallways? Teachers have to stand in hallways. The monitor behavior. Well, we can't be 6 ft. Apart the Hopis in that manner. I need my my state. The governor has even had the audacity to say with teachers don't want to go back. We'll figure out a way to penalize you, like take some of their pay or something. And they should get threatening me Now you're not vaccinated because that would help just, you know, ease my mind just a little, But then you threaten my pay or my certification. How did you justify that? You know, Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate, took to the floor speech recently. And he said, this federal money is not the obstacle..

"Is brought to you by sleep number. Welcome back to face the nation. We go now to Miami, still a hot spot for covert 19. Mayor Francis Suarez, is there. Good morning to you, Mr Mayor. Morning, Margaret. Pleasure to be with you this morning, According to the C. D. C. Florida is the state with the most cases of B 117. That's that's strange. First detected in the UK it's highly contagious. I know there's a concentration in South Florida. What mitigation measures are you putting in place in your city to contain it? You know, we've been restricted from being able to put in mitigation measures. I had implemented a mask in public order back when we were allowed to do that during the summer, and that drove down cases by 90%. Now we're not allowed to implement mask in public or something that I had been speaking to the coronavirus task Force about the good news. Is that a supposed to the summer where we had 2300 covert patients Countywide, which was a tremendous strain. On our hospital system. Now we have less than 1000 patients. So you know, even though we are obviously battling with with a new strain that is not, thankfully at this point, materializing into more hospitalizations. When you say not allowed. I assume you're referring to governor to Santis, fellow Republican who has put in place restrictions to bar local governments from enforcing Mask mandates s O, You're Are you telling him as mayor? I need power over my own city. Sure. Yeah, I've tried to reach him multiple occasion to tell him to give us the opportunity Not just here in the city, but in the county to be able to institute things that we think are common sense that we think are backed up by science. We can demonstrate are backed up by science. I have a chart that shows demonstrably that massive public work. Thankfully, a lot of our residents are doing it. Regardless, I think they're obviously concerned about their own health. And certainly we've been hammering home the point NPS Z, you know, throughout, you know last few months, and I think that's one of main reasons. Why are hospitalizations remain low? So Very thankful that our residents are listening, despite the fact that it's something that we can't mandate and the governor has not responded, I assume to your requests, but that's correct. That's right. I looked at the White House report for your state this weekend. It highlights the metro area around Miami as being in the red Zone, but your restaurants are allowed to have 100% capacity. Along with social distancing, Of course, but your bars your nightclubs. You're Jim's are all open. Should you be rethinking that? Like I said, you know, Unfortunately, that's not in our purview. That's something that the governor has decided. And certainly we're blessed that our residents, I think, are also heeding the warnings and are using mass. Despite The fact that there are a significantly greater concentrations of people at those establishments. Because of that our hospitalizations have plummeted from the summer and like I said, we're in a place where we have significantly less than we had before. Obviously, for aging population. We're focusing on vaccinating that population right now, as we speak on that's been our priority to make sure that we can protect those that are the most vulnerable Those that are at the most risk of losing their life. If they contract the virus. Do you know if you have any of the cases of P one, the strain out of Brazil or be 1351 out of South Africa? Don't yet I haven't got any indication from the State Health Department that we have any of those trains. It's very possible that we do what we do know. And we've been told is that the vaccines that we're administering for both Madonna and Fizer are effective against the UK string, which, of course, we all know is significantly more contagious. Then then, you know the sort of previous version of covert 19. So we're continuing to vaccinate both in the city of Miami Marlins Park at about 7000 Week. We'd love to have more vaccine. We think if we get significantly more, we can more quickly vaccinate the vulnerable population as well as the general population. Now vaccine. Tourism's also drawing people to Miami. I know you tried to stop some of this and your governor is said to prioritize residents. But there was a Mexican TV star posting on social media last week that he flew into Miami got a shot and then flew back to Mexico. Rules are still being broken here. How are you going to discourage that from happening? Yeah, it's awful. And I think you know we don't control all the vaccine is being administered. We control about 7000 of the 22,000 that are being administered Countywide. A lot of them are being administered by the hospital system by other organizations that we don't control. We are very faithful about making sure that we're asking for identification that people have a Florida Heidi because we think it's disrespectful. I mean, we have people in this community that are living here that are dying, frankly and you know they want and they deserve to have priority. If they're vulnerable. We need to get them vaccinated as quickly as possible to make sure that they can live peacefully. Enjoyable lives and without worry. Are you investigating some of this rule breaking? You're saying you're confident that People are being asked for I d. But obviously people exploiting that. Well, like I said, we're only doing about a third of all of the vaccination. So it's very possible that those cases were happening in the other two thirds, but definitely our fire department, which is the one that administers it is on heightened alert forward and certainly will investigate any cases that we believe arise from any vaccinations that we've given. The Miami Herald. Aziz You know, local paper there says that communities with higher average incomes have been getting more doses than impoverished neighborhoods. Why is that happening? Again, You know, we only control the ones that we get. We started doing in about a week ago at Marks Park and I can assure you that the ones that were doing are for the general public there. Uh, it's a state registration system. But it's possible that people are getting preferential treatment at hospitals. And that's something that frankly needs to stop immediately. We've been focusing on minority communities are underserved communities to make sure that there's an equitable distribution of vaccine to those that are vulnerable and that needed most. Mr Mayor. Thank you for your time this morning. Thank you. We want to go now to former FDA Commissioner Dr Scott Gottlieb. He sits on the board of Fizer as well as alumina. And you all heard Governor Lamont mentioned him on help he gives in his home state of Connecticut Doctor joins us this morning from Westport, Connecticut. Good morning. Money. I thought it was remarkable there to hear a Republican mayor criticized Republican governor and saying We need to actually be able to control what's happening in our own city and that not being allowed. To happen. Um, our cities like Miami places where they are seeing be 117. This strain of the UK circulate. Are they really at risk of being overrun? I think Miami is at the highest risk right now. Miami is Southern California. If you look at where be 117 is right now in the country, about half the cases that we're turning over in Southern California and in Florida and the cities of the hot spots, San Diego Miami, So I think that the Possibility is that we're not going to see a national epidemic with me 117, at least in the spring in the summertime. It's a risk to the fall. But what we're likely to see his regionalized epidemics with this new variant and the two places in the country. Right now, that is the biggest hot spots are Southern California and Southern Florida. Miami So those cities need to be very mindful of the spread of these various. Now we know what works. Fire immunity and the vaccines do appear to be as effective against this new variant. So as we immunize more the population and if people continue to wear masks and be vigilant in these parts of the country, we can keep this at bay. It's not too late, but it's a real risk those regions of the country right now, can you clarify because Dr Fauci was on this program last Sunday and said that that UK strain Does have a certain degree of increase in very alliance, meaning it can cause more damage, including death. Is it more deadly? There's some, there's some evidence right now. That does suggest as more pathogenic that does cause more severe illness, and we do know that it's about 50% more transmissible. But what we also.

It's nothing new to hear that covert impacts minorities more than it does the Caucasian residents of Washington. Yet the latest numbers from the state indicate it's a much larger problem than you might have anticipated. Once adjusted for age, covert 19 is impacting Hispanic residents four times more than their white counterparts, Pacific Islanders and black residents are impacted twice as much, and apparently, Washington's disparity is the worst in the nation.

"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour.
