The COVID situation in LA County is better than the media impression, because, county-wide, we have a better vaccination rate than our surrounding counties.

Yes, I am concerned about "break-through" infections even though I am vaccinated because my 9 year old grandson is not vaccinated; so I do wear masks and take precautions.

EDITED: to correct my statement that my grandson is not vaccinated!

I'll have to take a look at the stats when I get a chance but per https://www.latimes.com/projects/califo ... tribution/, LA County vax rate is pretty low vs. my county (Santa Clara).

Currently, it shows for LA County 63.7% w/at least 1 dose and 55.5% fully vaxxed. Mine is at 76.7% w/at least 1 dose and 71.1% fully vaxxed.

Your original post that I responded to, had your reticence to travel to Las Vegas (Clark County), Nevada; and your comparing it to Los Angeles...

If your new criteria is that you will not travel anywhere where the vaccination rate is lower than your County (Santa Clara), then you are in trouble as you are surrounded by counties (San Mateo, Monterrey and Alameda) which have lower vaccination rates.

Actually only two California Counties (Marin and SF) have higher rates!

AND you better stay out of those portions of your county that have highest number of new Covid cases in the last 14 days: San Jose, Santa Clara, Milpitas, Campbell and Morgan Hill!

EA should be free again this weekend.

https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/elect ... ost-671588

I charged my Bolt at two different EA sites for free. The latter had screens up (see 2nd post) about the time frame of this free promo.

Do NOT use a CC or their app.

As always, propping up the handle until it's locked to the car may be important: https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/ea-ma ... ble.36757/. Also, check Plugshare first.

Of course, there was no announcement so it's not like I can head to So Cal this weekend. My https://www.tovala.com/ order came (have to order or skip well ahead of time) showed up today, a day late. So, if I go out of town, unless I bring their smart oven w/me, all the food I ordered and paid for will go bad.

I can confirm it was free. I charged numerous times for free on EA over the weekend including at 4 different sites on Saturday (2 familiar to me and 2 in areas I've never been to before). There are under 7 hours left...
