Covid stories du jour

Hospitals are adding beds for Covid patients and the situation is described as tense.

Two thousand homeless people are to be vaccinated starting this week. This piece doesn’t mention which vaccine they will get. I imagine it’s wisest not to give out a two-part vaccine to people without a stable address or contact information.

The city is putting off property tax deadlines for 3 months, moving the March deadline to June, and the June to September.

Calls for police help fell by 40% on the first weekend of curfew. Make people stay home and, whaddya know, they stay out of trouble.
