The CDC recommended that everyone, including those who are fully vaccinated should return to wearing masks indoors in areas where Covid cases are surging.
San Diego County is one of those cities, and yesterday officials here announced that masks must be worn indoors for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. The CDC also recommended that all students, teachers and staff at schools, from kindergarten through 12th grade, wear masks even if vaccinated.
The Cal State University system announced yesterday that they will require all faculty, staff, and students on campus to be vaccinated this fall.
Faculty, staff, and students must certify vaccination no later than September 30th although certain schools have different deadlines. For example, at San Diego State, you must upload your vaccine documentation by August 16, as the first day of classes is August 23.

Twin Meteor Showers Could Spark Fireballs To Close Out July
There could be quite a show in the night sky this week. Two meteor showers are set to peak Wednesday night (July 28th) into early Thursday morning (July 29th), culminating in one of the few opportunities to see a meteor shower during the warm summer nights. These two showers are the Southern Delta Aquarids and the Alpha Capricornids.
In a typical year, the two would combine for around 15 to 20 meteors per hour, but the American Meteor Society (AMS) says the moon will be around 75 percent full Wednesday night, so the moonlight will wash out some of the dimmer meteors. The best time to watch will be before midnight on Wednesday (July 28th.)
The AMS also notes that the shower is notable as it typically produces “a number of bright fireballs […] during its activity period.” The experts say if the weather is unfavorable for viewing that night, you may be able to see some shooting stars from these showers through the weekend.
