Mendocino County Public Health Officer Says It’s ‘Way Too Early’ to Consider the Benchmarks for Rescinding Indoor Masking Mandate

This week, Bay Area counties including Sonoma established clear benchmarks that, when met, would allow the easing of the indoor masking mandates for vaccinated residents marking a potential endpoint to the visual reminder that COVID-19 is still amongst us.

However, Mendocino County Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren told us that at this point it is “way too early for me to predict what will happen in the next few months–let alone to set expectations to remove masks.”

Some of the variables he said that will influence when these benchmarks will be identified include, “if our cases continue to decrease through the holiday season, [if] no variants of concern emerge and our hospitals are not stressed.”

Dr. Coren said the jurisdictions represented within the Association of Bay Area Health Officials where these benchmarks have been established are far different from Rural Association of Northern California Health Officials that represents Mendocino, Trinity, and Humboldt Counties. Two key differences between the jurisdictions that are influencing Dr. Coren’s analysis include “Our region’s vaccine rates and compliance with health orders are lower while our case rate is  higher.”

We reached out to Public Health representatives in both Humboldt and Trinity County to get their thoughts on the consideration of these benchmarks to lift the indoor mask mandate

Meriah Miracle, a Public Information Officer for the Humboldt County COVID-19 Joint Information Center, could not provide a specific response to our inquiries and instead suggested the question be asked at Humboldt County’s virtual news conference next week.

Trinity County’s Public Health Branch Director Marcie Cudizol told us, “We will be meeting internally to discuss the metrics to be used beyond the case rate.” At this point, Cudziol said, Trinity County’s case rate remains high according to the CDC tracker. 

Cudizol did point out a discrepancy between the CDC’s data regarding Trinity County’s case rate and the internally calculated case rate: “Our internal calculated daily case rate differs a bit from the CDC tracker which is 48/100K, this may be due to the 7 day cutoff. Our calculated daily cases sit as 43.7 per 100,000 for the 7 days 9-29 through 10-7 and constitutes a high daily case rate.”

The following are the benchmark established by the eight Bay Area counties that when met would allow the indoor masking mandates to be rescinded:

  • Each participating county must be considered a “moderate” or “yellow” tier of community transmission for three weeks as designated by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • This tier status is informed by a county’s case rates and positive test rates. The “yellow” tier case rate ranges from 10-49.99 per 100,000 people in the past seven days and a positive test rate from 5%-7.99%.
  • One of the most unclear benchmarks states a health jurisdiction’s hospitalization rate must remain low, which is determined by the local health department.
  • The last benchmark that must be met is 80% of the county’s total population must be fully vaccinated. 
  • If that metric is not met, the mandate can be lifted eight weeks after children ages 5-11 are authorized to be inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine.

If Mendocino County were to adopt similar benchmarks as described above, the indoor masking mandate would remain in place. The CDC still characterizes Mendocino County as having a “high” or “red” tier community transmission. Mendocino County’s positive test rate stands at 6.85% and 67.9% of the eligible population has been vaccinated, as per CDC data. 

Humboldt County, as per CDC data is also considered an area of “high” or “red” tier community transmission with a 6.28% positivity rate and 65.1% of the eligible population vaccinated. Another point of the Emerald Triangle would remain masked indoors as per the current status of COVID-19 in the community.

Finally, Trinty County’s community transmission is also considered “high” or “red” tier. Interestingly enough, the CDC entry on Trinity County does not have the positivity rate nor the percentage of the eligible population fully vaccinated. That being said, the red tier designation would stop Trinity County from rescinding the indoor masking mandate as well.

While the rural north awaits the right conditions to begin the conversation of rescinding the indoor masking mandate, Dr. Coren said, “[V]accines and masking are the most accessible, safest, least expensive way to protect ourselves and others in this pandemic.”

As usual “failing” for anti vaxxers has one meaning when talking about the unvaccinated versus the vaccinated. For the vaccinated it’s failing in perfection preventiin but for the unvaccinated there is no such mention of failing. “The data shows a higher median age of 56 years among those vaccinated, versus 39.5 years in patients who were not vaccinated. Yet, in spite of their generally younger age, 26.2 per cent of the unvaccinated patients needed oxygen or intensive care against 2.8 per cent of vaccinated patients.

The paper said: “Despite significantly older age in the vaccine-breakthrough group, the odds of severe Covid-19 requiring oxygen supplementation was significantly lower following vaccination.”

I just love these foolish arguments, vaccinated death vs un-vaccinated death etc… For Humboldt, it will take mandated or even forced vaccination, but for Mendocino, which is one of the silliest places in the world, they might just have to turn over “forced vaccination” to roadblocks and “proof of vaccination” for entry to the county… People too silly to get vaccinated is one thing, but 4.5 million deaths worldwide is quite another… How can anyone be so non-civic-minded as to insist on not getting vaccinated? It’s completely foolish, just totally ridiculous! In the Bay Area, right now, over 85% of the people are vaccinated, but they wear masks outside, while driving their own cars, absolutely everywhere! I’m the one who thinks masks are ridiculous, useless and ineffectual, but then, I was one of the first to take his vaccine… I did my part, but nobody in Northern California seems to believe in doing theirs!

How long has it been since your 2nd shot? Or 3rd? Hard to keep track these days. If it’s been over 120 days, then sadly, you are part of the problem. It’s all the people that had their vaccination status EXPIRE, who are most at risk right now. I hurt for those people, and I’m happy with my decision to stick with NATURAL IMMUNITY, which is more robust, and more durable than the 120 day vaccine!

New data is coming out every day which supports natural immunity, especially in children. The B memory cells are the focul point. It is recommended, however, to vaccinate children who have pre existing conditions. I have always supported vaccinating the weak and the old! Best of luck to everyone!!

That’s quite the take! The average life expectancy was more like 30 and that was because the majority of people died very young, similar to other mammals that contend with nature. People did live longer often, Utzi the iceman was about 55 years old. Disease was heavily increased after the dawn of agriculture when people congregated in cities with poor sanitation and bad nutrition. Small groups of hunter gatherers are known for keeping disease at bay quite well. Modern medicine is mostly useful because we have lifestyles that does not match our evolutionary constraints.

You confuse being unable to record deaths with not having them. Hunter gathers had them but, without city services to create the leisure to create a system of writing and the making of records, deaths longer than living memory were forgotten.

It’s true in times prior to vaccines being available, that if people survived until age 5, they would likely have an average life span that was about 50% of the current average. People developed community living because it was safer. Maybe it favored disease spread in some cases but it also reduced deaths by violence, starvation and accident. Parsing out one factor to ignore the rest gives a false picture. It creates the almost universal fantasy of “golden ages” found in all cultures but that never really existed in any of them. People died less from disease because violence eliminated them first.

“In the Stone Age the average life expectancy was low and infant mortality high. The average life expectancy was around 35 years of age. Skeletons with injuries such as blows, chop wounds and arrow injuries show that life was dangerous. When death came it often struck down many people at a time.” https://en.natmus.dk/historical-knowledge/denmark/prehistoric-period-until-1050-ad/the-mesolithic-period/a-woman-and-a-child-from-goengehusvej/the-mass-graves-of-the-stone-age/

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-science-idCAKBN2GY23G In COVID-19 survivors, important components of the body’s immune response called memory B cells continue to evolve and get stronger for at least several months, producing highly potent antibodies that can neutralize new variants of the virus, a new study has found. By comparison, vaccine-induced memory B cells are less robust, evolving for only a few weeks and never “learning” to protect against variants, researchers reported in a paper published on Thursday in Nature go.nature.com/3AjGx2B. COVID-19 vaccines do induce more antibodies than the immune system does after a coronavirus infection. But the immune system response to infection appears to outshine its response to vaccines when it comes to memory B cells. Regardless of whether antibodies are induced by infection or vaccine, their levels drop within six months in many people. But memory B cells stand ready to produce new antibodies if the body encounters the virus. Prior to this study, there had been little data on how vaccine-induced B cells compare to infection-induced B cells. The researchers caution that the benefits of stronger memory B cells after infection do not outweigh the risks that come with COVID-19. “While a natural infection may induce maturation of antibodies with broader activity… Read more »

Vaccination uses the exact same immune system. Only there is much less risk of the first exposure killing you before your immune system kicks into gear.

There is this weird concept with anti vaxxers that somehow vaccines do what they do in some magical and fearful way that doesn’t involve the same immune system. That must be why they believe such peculiar ideas about vaccines such as an international cabal is using them to inject microchips or anti fertility chemicals.

No matter how short the time the vaccines protect, how does that equate with being less effective than nothing? Which is what anti vaxxers keep going on and on about. As if what they get from “natural” immunity is better when it is just harder won. Hello! It’s the exact same immunity if a person gets exposed to infection after vaccination except that the vaccinated person has a lower risk of death or severe damage because the same immune system is now primed to respond faster. Anti vaxxer seem to assign some moral virtue out of being sicker and more likely to die. There is no glory in doing stuff the harder way by choice when the result is the same in the end.

To some extent vaccines do work better if everyone around is vaccinated. If there is less exposure, every immune system, vaccinated or not, stands a better chance of defeating a virus just because there is less of it floating around.

But even if it was not so, the unvaccinated increase the burden of taking care of them and, if their natural immunity totally fails, of taking care of their dependents because they get sicker for longer.

Unfortunately thinking because you feel “don’t have a reaction” that you aren’t going to be a burden on others fails the test of numbers. In the thousands cases of infection, the unvaccinated are at least going to have been mistaken about their immunity at twice or three times the rate of the vaccinated. By some estimates, seven to ten times more often mistaken. Public heath comes in masses. Not individuals.

I am confused as how you lump The Patriot Act in with the Tea Party and The Oath Keepers.

The Patriot Act wants to strip your liberty and the others want to preserve it.

The Tea Party was originally created to stop the bail out of the big banks during the ’08 financial collapse. Is it wrong to fight big banks? Do they not have a stranglehold on the world’s economy?

It seems to me that somewhere along the line our trusted representatives have forgotten their pledge. Is it wrong to adhere to the document that this country was founded on? Would you toss it in the wind and hand this country over to the UN and thusly be governed from here on out by unelected bureaucrats?

Yes in southern ca as well, it’s about a 50/50. Masks are optional. Crazy how all the Humboldt outlaws are so submissive. Once you get to the hot parts of the state, the mask just becomes silly.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—After violating the company’s terms of service with his factually inaccurate message, local man Mitch Pennington, who posted the words “We can all get through this together!” on Facebook, was reportedly kicked off the social media platform Thursday for spreading a Covid-19 hoax. “We have taken immediate action to suspend Mr. Pennington’s account after he knowingly and willfully disseminated misinformation that suggests Americans are capable of joining together to overcome this disease,” said Facebook spokesperson Jessica Brodich, explaining that while the idea of the country cooperating in the face of adversity might seem completely absurd on the surface, the post was apparently believable enough to have been shared widely and was ultimately read by millions. “We do not tolerate users who attempt to deceive and mislead our online community by planting false hope in people’s minds. Though we support free speech, dangerous lies like ‘In the end, we are one big family’ or ‘United, we can do great things’ pose a serious threat to the public health.

The WHO is recommending everyone get vaccinated to lower the deaths and hospitalizations, which for now makes sense according to the data. I agree that elderly and unhealthy individuals should probably get vaccinated as they are very susceptible to having a severe reaction to covid.
The WHO recognizing that covid will not be wiped out by vaccinating everyone is a different and separate point. Even if everyone receives the vaccine it will still circulate and mutate. You could look it up yourself in about the same amount of time it took you to refute my “claim”.

Florida’s cumulative COVID-19 death rate is 49% worse than California’s. Does it have 49% more seniors?

“Higher vaccination rates and mask use indoors “have helped to blunt this fourth surge in California as compared to Florida,” said Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, medical epidemiologist and infectious diseases expert at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. “We are seeing better application of public health measures in California compared to Florida.”

More bullshit, disingenuous, cherry-picked data. Cases spike regionally (and seasonally), as you know. Those numbers were inverted just a few months ago and may revert if CA sees a spike going into winter. No matter how it shakes out you will ignore that FL has an older population, did not lock down and largely didn’t adhere to pointless mask mandates.

While you already admitted masks can be effective, you’ve also continuously portrayed mask mandates as data (to argue that they don’t work).

As I’ve repeatedly said, mandates do not translate into compliance, and are quite worthless as data gathering points.

In no mask San Diego people still wear masks.

In all mask LA people still “will not comply”.

The University of Tokyo study I used to link to showed masks slowed Covid.

You’re sneaky, that pro-vaccination article you linked to also was talking masks and the Delta variant.

Maybe Tokyo will get you a real updated study soon.

At this point I’m just going to wait out the detractors and hope nature sorts them out sooner than later so the rest of us can get back to normal. Some will survive and will claim vindication instead of thanking the rest of us sensible people, but at least we’ll get past it.

To be clear…not one reputable scientist thinks every person will catch COVID even if no vaccines had been invented. Not everyone got the Black Plague. Not everyone got the “Spanish” Flu.

The reason to get vaccinated is twofold–to up the odds of not getting ill and of not dying/having serious consequences if you do get it. And to become a shield. Every person who gets vaccinated is a shield protecting those who might have serious consequences from getting ill. They help reduce a community’s viral load.

The FDA Makes Plain It Has No Intention to Enforce the Conditions of Its Own EUA Issued for Covid-19 Vaccines As you may recall from prior legal updates, ICAN has been enforcing the FDA’s conditions in its emergency use authorizations (EUA) for the COVID-19 vaccines which prohibit making claims that these vaccines were approved as safe and effective. ICAN, for example, has successfully forced public health departments, including in New York and Michigan, to remove false claims about the safety and approval of these vaccines.  But because this is supposed to be the FDA’s job, ICAN filed a Citizen Petition with the FDA on March 29, 2021 demanding that the agency do its job and enforce the conditions it created when it granted the EUAs for the COVID-19 vaccines. This includes demanding that the FDA assure that state health departments stop making false claims about these vaccines in violation of the FDA’s EUAs. The FDA could have easily produced this result with a simple letter to each state health department asking them to not violate the EUAs. Instead, the FDA has done nothing. Six months after filing our petition, the FDA has stated: “Because of the existence of other FDA… Read more »
