Hoping this means Mountain View can start imposing a similar mandate for MVPD and other employees? The Voice reported that as of June only 73% of MVPD were vaccinated. Big safety issue to have 27% of the police force at risk of being incapacitated and infecting our younger residents.

chewie, two of Governor Newsom's children aren't eligible to receive the vaccine yet. A few days ago Dr. Fauci said that children at least as young as 4 "would likely be able to get vaccinated by the time we reach the end of calendar year 2021 and at the latest, into the first quarter of 2022."
