With so much attention on breakthrough COVID-19 infections lately, data help put into perspective how exceedingly unlikely it is for anyone who is fully vaccinated to end up in the hospital or die as a result of the coronavirus.

Less than 0.004 percent of people fully vaccinated in the United States face hospitalization after a breakthrough case and less than 0.001 percent died from COVID-19, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data cited by CNN.

Data on breakthrough infections are a bit tricky because the CDC stopped monitoring it on May 1 and not every state collects and presents the information the same way.

In an analysis of available state data, the Kaiser Family Foundation pointed out that not all hospitalizations and deaths among the fully vaccinated were actually due to COVID-19.

Still, data from the states that do publish the information make clear what experts have long said, hospitalizations and deaths are extremely rare among the fully vaccinated.

Breakthrough cases among the vaccinated is below 1 percent in all states and hospitalizations range from effectively zero to 0.06 percent.

The rates of death from fully vaccinated people was even lower, clocking in at effectively zero in all but two of the reporting states.

Bear in mind that you must provide proof of vaccination and be at least two weeks beyond your final injection. No Exceptions! The CDC has recently approved indoor maskless gatherings if EVERYONE has been vaccinated. Masks may still be worn if you choose.

The Tuesday evening game is limited to non-masters only. If there is enough demand, Tim will have two sections—one of which will be for novices. All other games will be one section until business picks up.

So—put down the TV remote, shove aside your bag of Cheetos, take off your pajamas and slippers, get dressed, comb your hair and come on out of your doomsday zombie bunker and play REAL BRIDGE with REAL PEOPLE!! No robots allowed.

Seriously, aren’t you ready to rejoin the world? Everyone is vaccinated at the Studio. You don’t have that assurance at the grocery store or anywhere else. We look forward to seeing you.

AS a reminder, we are pleased to announce that we are the FIRST KANSAS CITY LOCATION to have applied MICROSHIELD360.

https://microshield360.com/commercial/our-technology/

This proprietary permanent coating system creates self -disinfecting surfaces that work 24/7 to reduce and eliminate pathogens.
This product is approved in the EU for viruses as well as bacteria. It is approved for bacteria by the FDA and is awaiting approval for viruses.
IT IS EPA REGISTERED AND FDA APPROVED FOR DIRECT FOOD CONTACT SURFACES.
Cleaning the table or any surface it has been applied to will NOT remove the coating. It is PERMANENT!
This has been applied to all tables, chairs, bidding boxes, bathroom surfaces, kitchen area surfaces, file cabinets, blinds, and more. Basically, everything you can touch has been sprayed (including door handles). Not the bidding cards and not the playing cards. We were concerned the spray would ruin the cards and it is just impractical to do so.

IMPORTANT NEWS FOR PLAYING AT THE BRIDGE STUDIO: You must provide proof of vaccination to play (we are working on a list of people who have shown proof so they don’t have to bring their vaccine card each time but be patient). MASKS are required until the City and County say it is not necessary for indoor gatherings.

Twice a year the Bridge Studio offers six FREE BEGINNER BRIDGE LESSONS geared to the Absolute Beginner. These lessons begin on the First Monday evening in March and the second Monday evening in September.

More information, including how to sign up, will be posted here approximately two weeks before the lessons begin.

HOWEVER, the September session is canceled due to COVID. We await the possibility of an available vaccine before deciding on the spring sessions. Sorry.
