Sigh... this church and people like these are likely partially responsible for our low ICU capacity. I'd heard about them in the news before, having had to go to court recently.

More than one worshipper said it was a full house. The church can hold more than 500 people. Some people traveled far to attend and some of them chose not to wear masks.
Churchgoer Kevin McMahon said he’s willing to risk getting sick for his faith.
"I need the human connection," said McMahon. "I need the singing, we hug, we are not afraid."
Some worshippers were seen without face coverings. The parking lot was packed. The celebration lasted 90 minutes.
"I do not fear the virus," said Churchgoer Albert Benavides. "I respect the virus. I know that it's real. I don’t think it's a hoax but I know myself. I know I’m healthy."
Calvary Chapel San Jose has been at odds with Santa Clara County for months for repeatedly violating health directives. County officials said, the church has been fined $1.2 million.
Indoors? Some w/no masks? Singing? That's a superspreader event right there.
