Billionaire Elon Musk had some choices to make about the Bay Area and his handling of COVID over the weekend.
Responding to a tweet about masking and vaccine requirements for children’s sports, Musk didn’t mince words.
The “mind virus” is strong in the Bay, he said, adding that virus precautions are very high in the region.

As of Monday, Musk’s response has nearly 70,000 likes and 2,500 replies.
Musk was responding to an early tweet from angel investor Jason Calakanis, founder of Inside.com, an online community for business professionals.
Calacanis tweeted, “I’m going to a kids play… they are requiring vaccine cards, Covid tests, and masks. Ummm…. Ok,”.
“Bonkers… they are making 3 year olds coming to see a 45 minute kid’s play wear masks — and turning ticket holders away because they forgot their vaccine cards,” he added.
It’s unclear where in the Bay Area the play took place.
Former Golden State Warriors star Andrew Bogut also expressed his thoughts.
Calacanis said he is still pro-vaccine for those who are at risk. He said wearing a mask was a small price to pay during the peak of the pandemic, but not so much at this time, when the virus has weakened.
California was one of the first states to announce a lockdown at the height of the pandemic.
Doctors in the Bay Area have said the vaccines have saved countless lives, but symptoms tend to be milder and hospitalizations are less likely this time around.
Nevertheless, businesses and organizations differ in their requirements for virus protection.
