South Congress Avenue shoppers mostly maskless a day after health leaders urge face coverings COVID-19 breakthrough infections: Can vaccinated people get infected? People who are fully vaccinated can get COVID, but experts say they're unlikely to get severely ill. A day after Austin-Travis County health leaders sounded an alarm for worsening pandemic trends by recommending stricter masking guidelines, most shoppers on South Congress Avenue early Saturday chose not to cover their faces. Dozens of maskless Austinities weaved in and out of South Congress establishments, enjoying drinks at Jo's Coffee in between making their selections from the plethora of clothing options and Austin knickknacks being sold on the strip. One among a handful of people wearing masks while out shopping was Sandra Quintanilla, who was joined by her masked husband and son. Quintanilla said that although she's vaccinated, she has never stopped wearing a mask in public after losing six relatives to the coronavirus. "We need to stop the spread — that's the bottom line," she said. "I've had six family members die, and it's not worth spreading it to other people." Dr. Desmar Walkes, the Austin-Travis County health authority, announced Friday that the Austin area would move back to Stage 4 just as the reference weekly average for daily admissions to the hospital climbed to 34. The average for admissions to signal Stage 4 territory is 30 to 50, according to Austin Public Health. More: Austin-Travis County recommends masks, moves to Stage 4 of COVID rules Walkes said the uptick in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations is probably due to the highly contagious delta variant spreading through the nation. Health leaders are asking residents who have yet to receive a coronavirus vaccination to sign up for one immediately. Walkes on Friday said she's recommending that fully vaccinated people again wear masks in any situation where social distancing cannot occur, including shopping, dining, traveling and sporting events. She is also recommending that unvaccinated and partially vaccinated people wear masks in public but only shop, dine and travel when essential. Texas Department of State Health Services data show that 71.9% of Travis County residents 12 and older have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine. Of those, 62.65% are fully vaccinated. It will take 70% to 90% of Travis County residents 12 and older getting fully vaccinated to reach herd immunity, which means it would become difficult for the virus to spread because enough people are immune. However, Austin Public Health officials said Friday that even if the rest of Austin-area residents get vaccinated immediately, masks would still be necessary to stop the spread of disease because it takes about a month from the first shot to become immune. The latest projections from the University of Texas COVID-19 modeling consortium say if area residents don't immediately heed Austin Public Health's masking and social distancing guidelines, the area could surpass intensive care unit capacity by late August. An estimated 12,279 people could be hospitalized and 1,282 people could die by Oct. 1 if Austin residents do not adhere to Stage 4 guidelines, UT projections say. "It's scary, to be honest," Quintanilla said Saturday. "Just stay home if you're not willing to take extra precautions." However, about a half-dozen unmasked residents on South Congress Avenue said they were not likely to put on a mask unless a business policy requires them. All of those interviewed Saturday said they were vaccinated. "It's going to be hard to get people to wear masks again after allowing us to not wear them," said Max Weaver, who lives in Austin. "I don't think we'll opt in on our own accord." "I mean, we've followed the rules this far," said Rebekah Breque, who was walking with Weaver on South Congress Avenue. Though she agreed with Weaver that it would be hard to get people to comply with wearing masks, she said, "We've gotten vaccinated and done everything we can, and I think if we need to do more to prevent the spread, that's fine."

"We're both vaccinated, but I definitely think that I should probably be wearing a mask more often," Alexandra said. "It's nice to have the vaccine protection, but, of course, it's not 100%," her sister added. "So it's kind of refreshing to see it ramping back up again." Zac Miles, manager at Marine Layer on South Congress, said many shops on the strip were still working together to come up with a unified plan on how best to keep employees and customers safe.

"Right now we're just kind of waiting to see what we're going to do," Miles said. "We communicate with every other store on the block, so we kind of do it as a community."https://www.statesman.com/story/news/2021/07/24/covid-south-congress-avenue-shoppers-mostly-maskless-day-after-health-leaders-urge-face-coverings/8082293002/
