  1. ‘The Ripple Effect Is a Major Concern.’ Chicagoans Worry About the Aftermath of Lollapalooza as the Delta Variant Surges”
    UPDATED: AUGUST 3, 2021 4:09 PM EDT

    Lollapalooza has been a Chicago institution for 15 years, regularly drawing 100,000 people each day of the typically four-day event. This year, the lineup included Miley Cyrus, Tyler the Creator and the Foo Fighters, and marked the first major cross-genre festival to return to the U.S. since the pandemic’s start. Lollapalooza’s parent company, Live Nation, worked closely with public officials, including Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady, to implement safety guidelines, including a system to check if attendees have valid COVID-19 vaccine cards, vaccine records or negative tests upon entering, and to advocate that everyone wear masks while on festival grounds.

    Whether or not Lollapalooza, which ran from July 29 through Aug. 1, held COVID-19 at bay could make the festival a tipping point in whether or not the country’s triumphant reopening continues as planned throughout the summer and fall. “I think it has the makings [of a superspreader event],” Theresa Chapple-McGruder, a Chicago area maternal and child health epidemiologist, told TIME. “When we’re in a place where rates are rising, we need to put prevention strategies in place. I don’t see how a large festival like this could meet that criteria of slowing the spread.”

    Dr. Chapple-McGruder recommended that festivalgoers wear their masks outside and particularly in crowded spaces, find less-crowded places to eat and take public transit during off-peak hours. “If you live with or can’t avoid contact with high-risk individuals, maybe reconsider your attendance,” she says.

    Meanwhile, nearby businesses contemplated the risk-reward ratio, with some taking the plunge into opening up to a wider, more maskless clientele for the potential economic benefits. Billy Dec, who owns the Underground nightclub less than a mile from the park, hosts all-night afterparties for Lollapalooza artists and attendees every year, and welcomed revelers back: “There are a lot of people that are really positive about what the festival is doing for the spirit of a city that this year has been really tough on,” he says. However, he says he planned to keep his club’s capacity much lower than in years past. “We’re going to be over-careful about capacity at the door,” he says. “We’re going to keep our numbers low.”

    1. Harvey, I agree but that’s happening, just look at the Foo Fighters event, no socail distancing at any time and no masks. The follow of concert goers going to restaurants afterwards with no masks, will there be a follow-up afterwards on any spread of COVID-19, PLEASE!!!

  2. Can somebody tell me what the hell this all means?
    The Armpit gives a warning about the Foo Fighters but no other concert. Is it the average age or is it just bad timing?
    The state said you could not use your vaccination record a proof of vaccine now you can?
    I mean the rules are changing hourly depending on who you are.

  3. Or depending on what type of music you like. Foo Fighters must wear masks.
    Harry Connick? May not have to. Most likely everyone has gotten vaccinated.
    Kiss? Got me.

  4. Bob & Ron I agree with you both,the Biden Admins clearly doesn’t have a handle on this,resulting in confusing,mixed directives.At this point,the CDC’s “announcments’ hardly hold any credence for alot of people..I guess we all have to do what we’re comfortable with and hope we make the right choices…

    1. What handle is there? It’s not like the liberal media is saying much about anything considering how they dealt with Covid, the immigrants, etc under the Trump administration, as well as, those who perpetuated (“their concerns”) it on social media, Facebook, Twitter. etc.

      Harvey, Comrade isn’t wrong, however, it might seem like it. The table has turned now Biden (D) is in office. Even Fox News has something to say about Lollapalooza, but that was only because it was an attack on Chicago’s mayor. The hypocrisy is in full force in the political realm. Each side is blind to it. But that’s the political game.

      This virus seemingly effection the country at different times, besides the commonality of the fall and winter waves of 2000 and 2021, Which seem to be a link/exasperated to the cold/flu season., and the deaths seem to be just as unpredictable.

      NY is a prime example. The first wave in the spring of 2020 was devastating in deaths when it first hit the US. The second wave in NY in the fall/winter of 20,21 they had 10s of million more infections with a fraction of the deaths from their first wave and that was before the vaccine. While the same fall and winter 20, 21 waves ravished other parts of the country in cases and deaths.

      This wave seems early for the North East. It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out in the fall and winter, the cold/flu season.

      Like I said, “handle on what”? You got a vaccine out, and they’re telling people to still live in a bubble.

      My common sense says if people who have gotten the vaccine, like Danny are still catching the virus, and those who where the vaccine can be systematic that can spread the virus that is constantly mutating, epsilon is not far behind. In this case the Atlas.

      With “booster” shot vaccines starting to roll out, not even 6 months after the original vaccine, shot vaccination is not going to be a means to an end. In the same manner, the flu vaccine is an end to the flu virus, yet life goes on. An after-the-fact treatments need to be on the front. Human immunity is going to be a key factor in move forward to this in a flu-like virus or it fades out on its own, JMO

      Make sure you getting your vitamins. Vitimce C, D, and Zinc.

      However, consult your doctor, I wasn’t elected, and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express. 🙂

  5. It looks like the inmates are running the asylum again. Seems that City Councilman Alfredo Costillo threatened Public Facilities Director. Police are looking into it. Once again Aidee Nieves is showing true leadership by explaining it’s a police matter. Let them figure it out.

    1. Yes, and you better watch what you say because you don’t want him to “go street on you”! Seems as though Castillo thinks he has grande cojones but shows himself to be a real pendejo.

  6. Of course the Foo Fighters sold out. That was the stars lining up just right. They were in the area, the Armpit was available and Saffan was willing to lose money on getting them.
