The Delta variant is skyrocketing cases all over the country. During his weekly video update, the Mayor of St. Pete Beach, Al Johnson said, “The positivity ratio in the county has actually gone up to a little more than 14%. It’s still rising. If you recall, back a few weeks ago we were in the three [to] three-and-a-half percent range, which is where you wanna be.” Johnson encourages residents to get their vaccines – readily available for free at most local pharmacies – and the city is encouraging mask wearing inside alongside other CDC recommendations.
