Customers at S.F. porn shop threaten staff over city's COVID mandates

Customers have threatened staffers at an adult store in Mission District when they were asked to wear a mask or show proof of vaccination to use the back area, Mission Local reports.

Mission Secrets staffers say they are regularly threatened by people in the shop, which has been in the neighborhood since the 1970s.

“We’ve been punched in the face. We’ve been kicked. We’ve had stuff thrown at us,” the manager of Mission Secrets told Mission Local. “We’ve always had issues with people threatening us, but it’s gotten worse over the last two years. All because of the mask requirements or vaccine requirements.”

14 children given wrong COVID dosage

In East Bay, Sutter Health’s Antioch pediatric clinic confirmed Tuesday that fourteen children were given the wrong dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine over the weekend.

Sutter Health officials informed the parents of the children, as well as federal officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, KPIX5 reports.

“According to the CDC, patients who receive vaccine with an incorrect diluent volume may experience more arm soreness, fatigue, headache, or a fever in response to the dose given,” said Dr. Jimmy Hu, chair of the Sutter Health COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force.

S.F. unveils funding to revive the city's entertainment scene

San Francisco city officials on Monday announced a plan to revive the city’s entertainment and music industry, which was hard hit by the pandemic, KPIX5 reports.

The SF Live Initiative will put on concerts and live performances at local entertainment venues at outdoor parks and plazas next year. About $2.5 million in funding will cover productions costs and stipends for the participating entertainment venues.

“Our local venues are an indispensable part of San Francisco’s culture and economy. They’re places where longtime residents have been seeing shows for years and where visitors can catch their favorite band when they’re in town. They’re where people get to know their neighbors, start relationships, and make memories that will last a lifetime,” Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “We want to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to not only recover from the pandemic but help lead our economic and nightlife recovery.”
