12:05 pm
still out there and i feel like he should wait until everybody's vaccinated. but a u. c s up, doctor says the june 15th reopening date makes sense since everyone 16 and older will be eligible for a covid vaccine starting april 15th. that's two months to get most adults vaccinated. she says. the governor could also lift the mast mandate on june 15th. if you're vaccinated, you're protected from the verse, right and those who declined to be vaccinated. who were the unvaccinated? there's not gonna be enough virus around that. they're even gonna be exposed to the virus, the cdc says more than 34% of californians have already gotten at least one dose of the covid vaccine. doctor monica gandhi estimates that number will increase to 85% by june if supplies are available. try to wear that mask. let's get to really low cases. everyone who wants about seem to get it and i know those
