Sonoma County banned large gatherings and asked residents to shelter in place
Some context: 78% of people 5+ are vaccinated, just 7 of the 47 people in intensive care units across the county are COVID patients, and 77.3% of ventilators are availablehttps://t.co/owBsy9jIVE

And if Sonoma County is doing this, what’s going to happen to the entire state?!
Sonoma County has banned gatherings over 50 people and told residents to "shelter in place." This is the prelude to a statewide lockdown. We can't let it happen.

LA County – 226
Sonoma County – 95
