Where we’re still vulnerable as California reopens

Hello, Bay Area. It’s Monday, June 14, and if you’re broke, a local financial advisor says $ 3 bagels may be to blame. Here’s what you need to know to start your day.

As California prepares to reopen fully on Tuesday, it’s hard to imagine a scenario that would require a renewed statewide stay-at-home order, experts say. Thanks to vaccinations and immunity from a previous coronavirus infection, most areas of the state have enough immune protection to prevent another outbreak.

Still, hurdles lie ahead, including some that could delay the state’s takeover and cause further local restrictions or targeted closures. California will be vulnerable to outbreaks in unvaccinated communities, such as the recent clusters reported in Marin County. Health officials will also monitor cases of severe COVID-19 illness in young children who cannot yet be vaccinated.

But one concern beyond all others is the potential for the emergence of variants that could make vaccines less effective – although most experts say they don’t expect that to happen anytime soon. Learn more about Erin Allday.

After unveiling the large mural outside her West Oakland home dedicated to Black Panther Party women in February, Jilchristina Vest knew she wanted to do more. She believed that her vacant ground floor apartment could provide significant space for the community.

“It had to be something more like the Black Panther Party,” Vest said. And when a visitor stopped this year to look at the mural and thought there was a museum inside, the idea made sense to Vest.

This idea is now coming to fruition. The 1,000-square-foot mini-museum will open in June with a pop-up exhibit curated by Lisbet Tellefsen, Oakland publisher, curator, collector and archivist, whose collections focus on the Black Power movement.
