With the rollout of vaccinations, there is hope for a brighter future. However, we need to make sure everyone survives to benefit from the vaccine,” she said.“Now is not the time to meet with friends at your home to watch the game. It is not the time to go for a walk without a mask. All it takes is one mistake and soon five, 10 or 20 other people become infected — many of whom could be your friends, family members or colleagues,” according to Ferrer. “This deadly virus continues to spread at alarming rates and the most important way to stop it in its tracks is to avoid interactions with others and protect ourselves at all times.”State officials reported 39,839 new COVID-19 infections and 264 additional fatalities on Monday, bringing the statewide totals to 2,710,801 cases of the virus and 29,965 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior two weeks was measured as 13.7%, according to the California Department of Public Health.
