Vaccine Equity

Today, State officials will discuss the latest COVID response, including vaccine equity. California will start setting aside 40 percent of all doses for people living in the most vulnerable neighborhoods. That's about 8 million people in 400 zip codes. The list of zip codes has not been released yet, however it is expected to take into account incomes, housing, healthcare access and education levels. (photo courtesy PR Newswire)


State School Reopenings

Today the state's legislature is expected to vote on Governor Newsom's proposed plan to reopen public schools. The Governor and Democratic lawmakers announced earlier this week that they reached an agreement. The proposal would give $2.6 billion to school districts that open up kindergarten through 6th grade by April 1st. It would also give school districts and incentive to open all elementary schools in Red Tier counties. The plan also sets aside some of the vaccine supply for educators.

West County Election Results

The two tax measures in Tuesday's West County Election appear to have been defeated, though there are more mail in ballots to be counted. Both measures require a two-thirds threshold for passage. The results mean immediate fiscal repercussions for the struggling West Sonoma County Union High School District and fire agencies in the region, chief among them the Bodega Bay Fire Protection District.

School Vaccinations

Governor Newsom announced a plan to get more teachers and other school workers vaccinated. This Thursday and Friday wil be designated as educator vaccination day at the mass vaccination sites at the Oakland Coleseum and in Los Angeles. Those vaccines are in addition to the 75,000 doses the state is setting at other locations for educators. Here in Sonoma County the 1500 doses secured for teachers and school workers by Senator Mike McGuire are being administered this week, as other clinics have had to shut down due to a lack of vaccine supplies.

Snow Pack Survey

Today, the third snow pack measurement of the season will be taken in the Sierra by state water officials. The state tracks how much snow is on the ground and how much water is in that snow. They use that information to decide who gets water from California's dams and canals for the rest of the year. Last month's snow pack survey showed it's at 93% of normal levels.

Sonoma County Schools Reopen
