California In Yellow: Only State with ‘Moderate’ COVID-19 Transmission!
To all the haters thank Gavin Newsom and his strict COVID mandates that have helped California to get back down to yellow. All the other 49 states in the U.S. are still in the red and not getting any better.
COVID mandates are NEEDED right now, and every time we hear a celebrity complaining about wearing a mask or saying it affected their money. We say get over it. Wouldn’t they rather be safe and healthy instead of risking their lives and others? There are a lot of unVAXXED idiots out there. They are selfish people.

Anyway, CelebnHealth247.com reports that two weeks ago, California was the lone state where COVID-19 infection rates were considered “substantial,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s four-tiered system measuring community transmission.
According to KRON4 News:
As of Monday, the nation’s most populous state is now the only one that falls under the “moderate” transmission category, which is the second-lowest level, behind only the “low” tier.
California achieved the lower category thanks to a seven-day case rate that dropped dramatically in two weeks, from 95.3 per 100,000 to its current 41.3 per 100,000.
The state’s seven-day testing positivity rate, meanwhile, dropped to 2.6%, a nearly half-percent drop from Sept. 20, according to the California Department of Public Health.
Nearly every other state remains at the highest level of community transmission, save for Connecticut, where the transmission level is “substantial,” CDC figures show.
North Dakota has the highest case rate of any state in the nation at 566 per 100,000, with a testing positivity rate of 10 to 14.9%.
Nationwide, the seven-day case rate in the U.S. fell to an average of 183 cases per 100,000, while the positivity rate declined from 8.2% to 6.62%.
In California, health officials report that the infections are still occurring predominately among people who are not fully vaccinated against the virus.
For the week of Sept. 19, the average daily case rate in unvaccinated residents 16 years or older was eight times higher than vaccinated Californians in the same age group — 57.41 per 100,000, versus 7.12 per 100,000, according to a CDPH news release.
To date, 84.4% of eligible residents have received at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, with a total of 49.8 million doses administered statewide, the release stated.
Thank you, Gavin Newsom
