Chinook Winds casino located in Lincoln City, Oregon on the Oregon coast is my "go to" casino.

They are now closing due to a covid outbreak, and hope to reopen late August.

That damned surge.

If only there was a vaccine and other things to prevent this sort of thing.

You are joking but a new study released today by the Mayo Clinic says the Pfizer vaccine is less than 40% effective against stopping you from getting the new variant. At least eight people in my wife's family were all vaccinated with Pfizer and they all got covid in the last 2 weeks.

And were any of them hospitalized?

The Pfizer vaccine is supposed to be more effective than 40% (like 80%?) at preventing serious illnesses when exposed to Delta variant The 40% effectiveness of Pfizer against Delta-v is specific to getting infected.

Still, it is worrisome because Pfizer is the first vaccine in the queue to be officially approved.

Pfizer is ahead of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson on acquiring data. Let's hope that Moderna and J&J have a higher effectiveness against Delta-v than Pfizer. Otherwise this whole thing unravels.

I think the same study showed the Moderna to be close to 76% effective. Problem is, it is likely that each variant will render the vaccines less and less effective and considering the measles vaccine that worked took over 35 years to eradicate measles, covid will be around for decades to come

I wouldn't rule out another lockdown in California or Nevada.

You can pick up the story of how EvenBob's wife's family reunion trip turned into a superspreader event over on DT at http://diversitytomorrow.com/thread/3444/21/#post170056

TLDR: one infected, coughing unmasked passenger in a car full of vaccinated family members travelling many hours to go infect the broader family. It didn't end well. It hasn't ended yet.

Since this is a topic that EvenBob is passionate about,
I expect that further conversation about the event might get controversial. So, please keep it at DT.

Damned surge indeed! I think we can accept the profanity 'd' word.

I reckon it's a bit early for anyone to hope for things to improve in just 2 weeks.

2 weeks won't see many policies or minds changed. Why would anything improve?

Good luck, but don't hold your breath for the joyful reopening in 'late August'
