In Choose Freedom, Task Force Actions, Task Force Messages
A few of us called in, only one was able to get through.
Other than our one person, the rest of the 2-minute calls during the 90 minute call-in opportunity were related to other matters.  
Regarding Item 1, it was only a powerpoint presentation given by Barbara Ferrer in whose corpse-like hands the decisions regarding our county’s freedom rests. 
In short: Newsom wants to open, except schools, but is deferring to CAL-OSHA’s far, far greater restrictive “recommendations.”
Despite having THE LOWEST rate in the nation, and among the highest vaxx rates in the nation, STILL they want to make life SO impossible for the unvaxxed that pressure will be applied by their coworkers because, for example, if only ONE person is unvaxxed in the workplace ALL must be masked. For more on this, see slide 16 in the deck.
There appears to be considerable push-back on this so stand by for more.
Well, it does appear as if the LA Board of Supervisors will be discussing issues related to mandates, passports, and segregating according to vax status.

I spent some time talking with my “contact” at Sheila Kuehl’s office who divulged all this to me.  Not that he KNOWS anything specific but that’s what he’s hears.
Segregation was his word, by the way.
I pointed out that, according to a PATCH article- hardly a bastion of controversy, CA is at 0.8% positivity rate, the LOWEST in the nation, so why would we be the only ones to segregate?
No answer
They will also be discussing mask mandates but as I’d said before, they plan to follow Newsom’s relaxing of mask regs.
I then brought up the continued State of Emergency and will the county take a stand against Newsom continuing it? Cited stats and so on.
His take:  it will be a month or 2 before everything is lifted and we can go back to pre-covid unregulated life.
And as I noted, all of this seems hand in hand with CAL/OSHA – more on that later.
TOMORROW is the day to SPEAK.

Task Force Email:

For the first time since I’ve been watching, the LA Board of Supervisors has COVID-19 on its agenda for Tuesday June 8th. 
The exact words are:
I. SET MATTER 10:30 A.M. 
S-1. Public Health Order
 Discussion and consideration of necessary actions on the Public Health Order related to COVID-19, as requested by the Chair of the Board and status on the COVID-19 vaccine, as requested at the Board meetings of December 8, 2020 and January 5, 2021. (20-4861)
I have spoken with Blake at Sheila Kuehl’s office  (I’m in her district) and his take was
1) Vaccine Mandates do NOT at all seem to be on the table, nor do “passports” or the idea that a proof of vaccination might become a government doc required for any activity.
2) This is more about LOOSENING rather than further restricting activity etc including mask mandates and so on
3) Counties can NOT be more lenient that the state (in fact, no government entity can be more lenient than the entity above it, but they can be more so) and LA County plans to follow exactly what the state is doing, not ramping up or keeping more restrictive measures.  The state has said it will be loosening things up “almost” to normal on June 15th and the county expects to do so along with them.
BUT YOU NEVER KNOW so I think attending the meeting is a good idea regardless of what they say beforehand…There’s rumbling about how reaching the magic number of 80% vaxxed for herd immunity (What? where did this come from?) isn’t happening… so they may use that as an excuse…  I think it’s fair to assume that we just can’t be sure what they’ll do, given how many weeks we are into the 2-weeks-to-flatten-the- curve lie.
After getting all the relevant info I also expressed my feelings about all this to him, and added how outraged I was that nobody, NO ELECTED OFFICIAL, stood up for the children who have been needlessly masked, needlessly had mental harm done to them for NO legitimate physical reason…  and made a few other choice points too but that one seemed to hit home.  I didn’t even bring up the vaccination of kids, but should have.
Feel free to call Sheila Kuehl’s office at  213-974-3333 for more information
Here is the announcement from the BOS:  Board Agendas (
It includes how to watch the meeting, and how to call in on Tuesday, which I plan to do, either in support of restoration of freedom or against any further restrictions.
And I hope we all “attend” and have talking points ready, either to speak or email in.
All the contact info is at the link I included.  

Meanwhile, work continues apace.
