    So much for summer heat helping eradicate the virus.
    I wonder if the video of the guy at the Michigan boat party claiming “it was his right” to go without a mask...... and “raft up” with a few hundred of his friends can be viewed by those made sick at the event.
    Mask up or stay well spaced for everyone’s safety.
    Sure it’s a pain in the A$$, not being as safe as you can be isn’t working.
    Mask 😷

    I was tested today.
    I don't have any symptoms but Iowa is pushing to have everyone test to make sure asymptomatic people are not out and about.
    It took very little time to call in for a time, drive 2 miles to the hospital and do the test.
    The test is not uncomfortable and it's free.
    If I test negative, then develop symptoms later I can get tested again.

    No new deaths reported yesterday here in Mass. First day since March. Still more cases though.
    I’m concerned that all you in the areas that reported a “low” infection rate are going to see what all this was about.

    We had one case in the county for a couple of months. It jumped to over 140 in less than three weeks. Our per capita infection rate is skyrocketing. On a per capita basis the metro area with the highest infection rate is Hanover / Corcoran in California at 1355 per 100,000 people. Ours is higher than that, at 1480 per 100,000 for the county as a whole and over 2,000 per 100,000 for the City of Alpine. We are now at more than double the per capita infection rates in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, or Austin and twice that for Texas as a whole. We have tourists to blame for bringing it here, and stupid, careless, thoughtless people for spreading it.

    Our problem are the kids are completely ignoring all the recommendations to keep safe.
    We now have 15 active cases in or county.
    That number may jump because one idiot who tested positive went to two bars last Friday.
    The crazy thing, he's the safety officer at a factory here in town.

    It is the young here who are causing our surge. The good news is that although the number of cases has more than doubled in the past few weeks, the number of deaths and hospitializations is still stable and low. We had our two biggest days recently and many of the cases were due to weddings.

    Good news
    Would that test indicate if you had it prior? Thinking anti-body test maybe?

    I forgot to ask. It's not mentioned in my email.

    Edit: I called in and she said the test only shows if you currently have the virus.

    Masks are mandatory for everyone on campus (SFASU) starting next Tuesday, when all employees have to return to work. I'm seeing a few more masks out and about.

    Just to be clear, masks will not prevent you from getting the virus. It's a courtesy for those around you.

    I am still in shock at the enormity of the virus impact in the US.
