As COVID-19 vaccine mandates rise, religious exemptions grow

Thousands of people are using religious objections in an attempt to get out of the required COVID-19 vaccine.

Religious objections were once used only sparingly around the country to get exempted from various required vaccines.

But they are becoming a much more widely used loophole against the COVID-19 shot.

About 3,000 Los Angeles Police Department employees are citing religious objections to try to get out of the required COVID-19 vaccination.

In Washington state, hundreds of state workers are seeking similar exemptions.

And an Arkansas hospital has been swamped with so many such requests from employees that it is apparently calling their bluff.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
