UPDATE 8/24 — The county’s 59th death was announced today, the second in two days the fifth reported since August 16 — see our latest update here.
MENDOCINO Co., 8/23/21 — Mendocino County Public Health announced two additional deaths from COVID-19 since Friday: a 41-year-old woman from Willits, and a 66-year-old woman from Redwood Valley, both of whom were unvaccinated. That brings the overall number of people lost to COVID-19 to 58, with eight of those cases since July 29 and three in the last week. The county also announced an additional 124 cases after the weekend, bringing the county’s daily average positive case rate to more to 60 new cases a day on average over the last week.
Mendocino County, along with Humboldt, Lake, and Del Norte counties, have seen significant case increases in the last month, putting a strain on regional hospitals. Mendocino County Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren said on Friday that intensive care unit (ICU) capacity was at 12.5%, and positive case rates and hospitalizations have significantly exceeded last winter’s peak.
Current new cases are primarily attributed to community spread, although cases have been reported at retail and restaurant locations, as well as what Coren called a “tightly controlled” cluster of cases at the county jail announced last week, and two cases at healthcare facilities. The county has issued announcements for individual businesses when a person with COVID-19 has interacted with the broader public. “If you have symptoms, please stay home and get a test,” whether or not you are vaccinated, Coren told area residents.
Adventist Health, which manages the three hospitals in Mendocino County, has been experiencing ongoing strain due to the continuous increase in COVID-19 cases, and announced today that non-emergency elective in-patient surgeries would be temporarily rescheduled to save beds for COVID-19 patients. There are currently 19 people in the hospital, a decrease from last weekend, and 8 in the ICU, and last week Mendocino County was granted a waiver to more readily transfer patients to out-of-county hospitals as needed due to the surge.
Coren emphasized that 95% of current hospitalizations are unvaccinated people, and that it is putting the community at risk, noting this will make it hard to find beds for patients with “heart attacks and other kinds of things.” Mendocino County hospitals restricted visitors on Aug. 12 and last week Adventist Health representatives said they had requested additional nursing staff.
State workers, school staff, health care workers, fire fighters, emergency medical personnel and law enforcement will be required to be vaccinated or undergo regular testing according to new county and state policies, and Coren said he was developing guidance for local businesses to implement similar policies. There is a current indoor masking order in the county, and Coren emphasized that attending gatherings is an “individual choice at this point,” suggesting residents may want to avoid large gatherings due to the scale of the current surge.
Mendocino County schools opened last week, and Coren said that positive cases were found at three different schools out of 53 in the county. He explained that due to state protocol, which also requires staff to be vaccinated or tested regularly and masking, contact tracers would be able to selectively quarantine any exposed students to avoid shutting down entire classrooms due to positive cases. Schools will be requiring weekly testing for staff and some students, especially those involved in sports, and will use rapid testing upon entry for students showing symptoms.
Coren said he expected vaccine approval for children under 12 in the next two months, and asked parents to make sure they had sent in any necessary forms for testing and other protocols. He also said the county had developed a set of guidelines for student sporting events that included recommendations for not only players but attendees.
Vaccinations have been increasing in the last several weeks, and 54% of county residents have received two doses. The county has been increasing vaccine pop-up clinics and testing opportunities, as well as the call center staffing. Coren said that immunocompromised people who may be eligible for a third dose booster should contact their health care provider before going directly to a vaccination clinic. Today, the Federal Drug Administration issued full approval for the Pfizer vaccine, and Coren said he expected a vaccine being developed specifically for the delta variant to be available in the next month.
Due to the ongoing wildfires across Northern California, Coren recommended that residents consider the balance of COVID-19 exposure and wildfire smoke exposure when planning activities outdoors on smokey days.

Even Mainstream Media Is Now Asking Big Questions About Covid Vaccines
25, 2021 – 11:19 AM
Former Congressman Ron Paul has highlighted this week that a handful of mainstream media articles have actually begun to break ranks in terms of questioning key aspects of vaccine effectiveness and mandates, particularly when it comes to the controversial boosters now being widely proposed.
“Even mainstream media is now asking big questions about the vaccines” Wednesday’s Liberty Report featured. A couple of recent headlines in Bloomberg and BBC were unexpected in terms the criticism reflected and somewhat skeptical pushback against the ‘consensus narrative’.
The first news article that Congressman Paul and co-host Daniel McAdams highlight is from Bloomberg.
Here’s how the very unexpected Bloomberg article, which was published this past weekend, began:
Anecdotes tell us what the data can’t: Vaccinated people appear to be getting the coronavirus at a surprisingly high rate. But exactly how often isn’t clear, nor is it certain how likely they are to spread the virus to others.
Though it is evident vaccination still provides powerful protection against the virus, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought.
And the same day as the BBG headline, there was this from UK government-funded BBC…
“Is catching Covid now better than more vaccine?”
The story began:
It is now a serious question that has implications for whether children should ever be vaccinated. And whether we use the virus or booster shots to top up immunity in adults. Both have become contentious issues.
“We could be digging ourselves into a hole, for a very long time, where we think we can only keep Covid away by boosting every year,” Prof Eleanor Riley, an immunologist from the University of Edinburgh, told me.
A mere month or more ago such statements found in these couple of mainstream media articles would get a person possibly suspended from Facebook or Twitter.
But they underscore just how ‘experimental’ the whole scenario is, despite governments in a number of places now mandating COVID-19 vaccines, with boosters just around the corner and already being implemented in some places (with Israel previously being the first) on a mass scale.
Soon we could see health officials pushing a second booster, a third, and on and on it will go…
Even The Daily Beast, which has spent much of the pandemic shaming the ‘vaccine hesitant’ is now admitting that “ultra-vaxxed” Israel is now seeing numbers of infections skyrocket…
It appears that some in the media are actually beginning to acknowledge the “rush” for boosters is far too premature, and too little is yet known.
The World Health Organization,
The WHO, is headquartered in Switzerland and has staff working in the offices of 149 other countries.
The WHO confirmed in an email it does not have a vaccination policy in place for its employees, although the WHO said there are situations where a “strong recommendation to be vaccinated” might be issued and cited healthcare environments as an example. The WHO referred to its April policy brief for its current stance on mandatory vaccinations.
“The World Health Organization (WHO) does not presently support the direction of mandates for COVID-19 vaccination, having argued that it is better to work on information campaigns and making vaccines accessible,” the WHO said in that brief.
This much was predictable: Ramp up the case count and blame it on those of us who refuse to be injected with an experimental, mRNA “vaccine” that can infect others via microvesicle shedding. Their is a plethora of evidence that the “vaccines” are causing the uptick in illness and death. As we head into the regular flu season and the effects of those toxic injections manifest in greater numbers of people succumbing due to their compromised immune systems, those of us who choose sovereignty of our own and our children’s bodies will be shunned and prevented from shopping, traveling, family outings, even just walking down the street. It’s a story that is repeated through the ages: the witch hunt, the exclusion and/or elimination of those who are “different” by choice or circumstance, the compulsory yellow star, the reeducation camps… all for the Greater Good.
Evidence please on the uptick of deaths and new cases caused by the vaccine. It’s been approved by the FDA so it’s not experimental. All of your so called evidence is hyperbole. I have a comprised immune system and I took the risk to get vaccinated for the greater good of the world . It’s a ridiculous stretch to compare these mandates to Nazi Germany . Stay home if you can’t get the vaccine. The science is sound . I stay at home due to all of you unvaccinated people and people who refuse to follow COVID protocol. I’m pissed 😤. Your ill informed conspiracy theory attitude is paranoid and selfish. Now children are getting it but you still stick to your bs ideology. May Darwinism take you down .
“The Time Has Come. Enough Is Enough” – Fauci Dismisses “Freedom” In Call For Vaccine Mandates

If you can’t even spell Nazi correctly why would anyone think you have the ability of critical thought .
I’m sorry Marie it is America and people are allowed to cling to whatever delusion they’ve pulled from the trash can called the internet. I tend to just hope for the best for folks.
It is curious that these “people” equating the USA to nazi Germany are the ones telling everyone what to do. I only see them post on covid related articles…maybe they’re not even community members…hmm?
Darwin baby! Don’t get the shot, please! I beg you not to as it will increase the chances that the rest of us will be rid of your ignorant ranting for good. Freedom to dig your own grave.
Blood clots as prevalent with Pfizer and Moderna vaccine as with AstraZeneca’s: study
Published: April 15, 2021 at 6:05 a.m. ET
By Steve Goldstein
A study by Oxford University found the number of people who receive blood clots after getting vaccinated with a coronavirus vaccine are about the same for those who get Pfizer PFE, -1.92% and Moderna MRNA, 2.45% vaccines as they are for the AstraZeneca AZN, 0.32% vaccine that was produced with the university’s help. According to the study, 4 in 1 million people experience cerebral venous thrombosis after getting the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Blood clots for the flu?
Gotcha a .0004% chance of getting a blood clot, not dying just getting one. Yet there’s a 1+% chance of dying from the rona flu. If you believe what our county health care workers say.
Great statistical analysis as usual Alberta…I’m glad you’ve chosen wisely! 🙂
However will we survive this CCP virus with a 99.5% survival rate oh lawdy.
You paranoid, delusional, anti-vaccine, trump supporters are ruining Mendocino county. Stop getting our children sick!
People across the United States have already received doses of vaccines against coronavirus — vaccines developed as part of Operation Warp Speed (OWS), the project conceived, initiated, resourced, and largely executed under President Trump administration leadership.
If you took the fake vax then you are a Trumper lol!
Covid Booster Junkies
Even though the WHO has warned it will only serve to worsen vaccine inequality, and Israel’s Health Ministry has found that even with a third dose, mRNA jabs like the Pfizer and Moderna jabs are less than 90% effective at preventing COVID, the White House is pressing ahead with its plan to vaccinate Americans 8 months after getting their first shot, with the jabs becoming an annual tradition for most as the virus continues to evolve, becoming a chronic threat, like the flu.
Stay safe out there.
Dr. Robert Malone invented the mRNA technology, which has been used to create the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines. He has been speaking out about the dangers of the COVID shot, such as the damages the Coronavirus spike protein causes in the body. In this interview with Del Bigtree, Dr. Robert Malone calls for a stop of COVID vaccines. He explains that the COVID vaccine can cause enhanced immune response, which creates a worse reaction when exposed to the natural coronavirus. He says that it can create autoimmunities in the the body. Dr. Robert Malone also said that the spike protein is the most dangerous part of the virus (which is in the COVID vaccine) is similar to spike proteins in our bodies, and can open up (not just pass through) the blood brain barrier. This has very dangerous implications for the human body, and why there have been so many adverse reactions to the COVID vaccine.
Actually Dr Katalin Kariko and Dr Drew Weissman are credited with “inventing” mRNA.
Another fine example of anyone can say whatever they want on the internet, and subsequently Alberta believes it.
Dr. Katalin Karikó. BioNTech RNA Pharmaceuticals.
Dr. Katalin, Bio nTech set to reap billions for Pfitzer Comirenaty innoculation.
A new technique called differential mRNA display has been recently established and used to identify differences in subsets of mRNA samples.
GASLIGHTING AMERICA: Did the FDA actually approve a FUTURE covid “vaccine” from BioNTech that does not exist yet?
By Ethan Huff
Did the FDA actually approve a FUTURE covid “vaccine” from BioNTech that does not exist yet?
There appears to be a whole lot of confusion out there about which “vaccine” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was actually “approved” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Aug. 23, 2021.
While many mainstream media outlets quickly ran with the story that Pfizer’s existing mRNA injection for the Fauci Flu was given the official green light from the FDA, supposedly making it easier to mandate, others are saying that the FDA issued approval specifically to BioNTech, a German vaccine corporation, for a Chinese Virus injection that does not exist yet.
BioNTech, as you may recall, partnered with Pfizer to produce the current Fauci Flu shot that is being administered under an emergency use authorization (EUA). It turns out, however, that this is technically a different shot than the “Comirnaty” branded one referenced in the FDA’s recent approval announcement.
It would seem as though there is a mass mind control con taking place right now in which the usual suspects are peddling a confusing, if not false, narrative that the current Pfizer injection has received “full approval” from the FDA. So, what is the actual truth?
According to Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of messenger RNA technology, the official FDA documents do not indicate, based on his own reading, that full approval for the Pfizer injection currently in use has arrived. That, he says, is coming around 2023
Ethan Huff…that’s rich!! Do you even look up backgrounds on internet authors you believe? You are a very gullible bot 🙂
Of course you don’t that’s not why you’re here.
You’re here to scare people from getting a vaccine. Why?
At best misguided altruism at worst you’re a commie troll…either way folks in mendo have you pegged and don’t need your help.
VAERS COVID Vaccine Data
Reports from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.
Our data reflects all VAERS data including the “nondomestic” reports.
read the VAERS disclaimer
through August 13, 2021*
Yes out of 5.04 billion doses given there have been less than 600k adverse events.
Does the .01% chance you may experience an adverse event scare you?
Yup 5.04 billon shots given and 596k adverse events.
Does a .01% chance of an adverse event scare you? I’d bet those folks with adverse events were obese and unhealthy so… 🙂
They just loove writing about another death…in hopes of scaring even more people to join the government experimental fake vax program. Again, I’m pretty sure they were NOT treated early with THERAPEUTICS, which most likely would’ve saved their lives. But why would they write about that? Why don’t they write about the millions that have recovered from this CCP virus? Or the fact that almost all deaths were NOT treated early, hmm…
You should talk to some nurses…your opinion is NOT based in fact.
Abbott & Costello’s famous skit “Who’s on First Base.” Updated to COVID
Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’
Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.
Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
Bud: ‘That’s right.’
Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’
Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
Bud: ‘I know.’
Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’
Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’
Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’
Bud: ‘Third base.
Question for Hospital Administrators–
how are you determining the deceased died of covid if the covid tests are faulty?
Answer — you can’t.
Proof the deaths are covid in a court of law.
Proof or prove? lol your dumb is astounding:)
Maybe prove read rofl!!!!
Looks like Alberta needs a job…who sits around posting crap all day long? Get a job and get a life, your are a MORON!
