Unvaccinated attendees fuel COVID-19 outbreak at Illinois camp

Source: The Hill

An Illinois summer camp has been forced to shut down after a COVID-19 outbreak caused by unvaccinated attendees, multiple outlets reported on Wednesday.

In a statement, the Illinois Department of Health said that 85 attendees and volunteers at the Crossing camp have tested positive for the virus, adding that only a "handful" of campers and volunteers had received vaccine shots.

IDPH also said the camp didn't require a mask mandate indoors and did not check for vaccination status. Seventy percent of the reported cases were unvaccinated individuals, according to the statement.

"The majority of the 85 COVID-19 cases associated with the youth camp are among teens," IDPH Director Ngozi Ezike said in the statement. "The perceived risk to children may seem small, but even a mild case of COVID-19 can cause long-term health issues. Additionally, infected youth who may not experience severe illness can still spread the virus to others, including those who are too young to be vaccinated or those who don't build the strong expected immune response to the vaccine."

Of course, FOX, OANN and News Max will probably claim that this is some sort of liberal false flag operation intended to promote cancel culture, critical race theory and abortion.

2. This is what exactly will happen in schools this fall with in-person learning.

Summer camp is just like a school.

30. I'm not looking forward to exposure.

I'll wear a mask. Because of open enrollment, many of my students come from a town nearby whose response to COVID has been deplorable. I think most of these students and their families will not be vaccinated.

7. That was my first thought

that it was a "Christian" camp. Sure enough...not that you could tell from the MSN or USA Today stories...it's like puke politicians getting negative coverage...the party affiliation is rarely mentioned. In this case, you have to go to the camp's website to figure it out.

Fundies and their dangerous, crackpot beliefs not getting enough weight in coverage of disasters caused by said beliefs.

9. Have a cousin

in KC area whose kid went to church camp and came home with Covid and spread it to the rest of his family. She didn’t mention where this camp was, but I am guessing it is in MO. And no none had been vaccinated. I think the one that went to camp was old enough to be vaccinated. Don’t know about the other kids.

Kids can spread it around just as adults.

Kids can get infected and infect others, especially with delta covid.

15. Many kids are too young for the vaccines yet

and Delta spreads faster and infects young people worse than the older variants. So maybe we shouldn't be having these sort of camps this summer?

16. All attendee of this particular camp were eligible for vaccinations, so must have been older than 12

Clearly we shouldn't be having camps with un-vaccinated kids or teens since delta is highly infectious and will get them all.

17. They are still studying the heart issue on teenagers

I would avoid camps regardless. There will always be some unvaccinated in large groups, especially in a camp that might lean conservative/religious.

21. I am not sure what you think it's going to change-

seems everybody agrees mRNA vaccines can cause myocarditis in young men, in rare instances.
But benefits of vaccination outweigh those risks. If you are waiting for something else, it's not going to happen any time soon. It's going to be a nightmare in schools this fall if teens remain un-vaccinated. Cause clearly delta will infect them all.

22. It would be great if more people get vaccinated

so I would hope doctors can convince parents to vaccinate their teenagers

29. I wonder how many were kids who couldn't be vaccinated

because of local restrictions.

However, that camp didn't bother to check and didn't require masks indoors, the latter clear negligence.

I checked their website and they're all about Jesus. Is anyone surprised?
