Is The Outdoors Still Safe From Delta Variant?

Is the outdoors still safe? Concerns about Delta prompt new guidelines

Since early on in the pandemic, public health officials have emphasized that the risk of getting COVID-19 is lower outdoors. In fact, outdoor transmission of COVID-19 has been rare with previous strains of the virus, according to a number of studies.

But as the hypercontagious Delta variant continues to drive up cases in parts of the country, many have begun to wonder if this strain is also more transmissible outdoors, particularly as Labor Day approaches and many Americans are planning outdoor gatherings. (big snip)

Nevertheless, some experts warn that the risk of breakthrough cases may increase if people attend large and crowded events, especially if attendees do not practice social distancing or wear masks.

Recent examples of breakthrough cases driven by Delta include a cluster in Provincetown, Mass., in early July. According to a CDC report, 469 cases of COVID-19 associated with multiple summer events and large public gatherings were identified among Massachusetts residents. Those who tested positive for COVID-19 following Fourth of July festivities reported “attending densely packed indoor and outdoor events at venues that included bars, restaurants, guest houses and rental homes.” Approximately three-quarters (74 percent) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons, according to the CDC.

Can anyone remember what happened in Massachusetts?

Yes, yes, I know, the media attempted to say there was no link whatsover. Funny how the media forget to mention that big party. No problems mentioning Sturgis, though.

“Outdoors, we always say it’s safer than indoors, but the nature of exposure is very important. If you are outdoors in close proximity with someone that is coughing in your face and you are not wearing a mask, then that outdoor rule does not make any sense,” he said. “At the end of the day, people need to have that sort of common sense and say, ‘If there is somebody coughing, even if it is outdoors, I should probably be distant and have my mask on.”

Yeah, I’m not wearing a mask, I’m getting the hell away from that person. This is common sense all the time. But, this is the runup to forcing masks outdoors all the time.

    According to the NY Timrs covid seems to have peaked at about 7 new positive per day mostly among people under 30
    According to the MV Times
    I don’t think a lot of under 30s were invited the last time someone died frk. Covid was back in April
    I think the loc hospital is doing well

    Not wearing a mask is how tRumpists virtue signal. It’s easier than getting a swastika tattoo.

    Courageous right-wingers refuse the vaccine and are dying. Hypocritical pussies get vaccinated and then discourage others.
