  • Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted “News outlets saying we're in another wave. Dr. Arwady presenting slides showing how people are out and congregating at increased rates and cautioning that it's not safe to do unless you're fully vaccinated. So why are we allowing 10,000+ people to gather in baseball stadiums?”
