The Bay Area was a model of cooperation during the early years of the COVID pandemic, as residents sheltered in place, lined up for vaccines and wore masks in public. Many residents have watched in dismay at the politicization of health precautions in other parts of the country.
Yet even in this conscientious region, vigilance did not last. As another winter surge of COVID grips the region, large numbers of people are forgoing masks and skipping the latest booster – an essential tool to prevent serious illness as immunity from previous injections or infection decreases.
