Of course, because stage 3 reopening was the greatest idea ever /s.


No doubt the rise is related to college campuses opening back up.


I thought it was all because of Memorial Day, no wait the Fourth of July, no that wasn't it, must be Sturgis, no I got it - it's Labor Day. Yeah that's it. What next, Thanksgiving?

If you don't have the idea that wearing a mask and washing your hands is a good idea, well, I don't feel sorry for you.



Nothing that significant has changed in phase 3, I don't know why some are so quick to blame it on that.


It's all because Orange Man Bad. Keep and eye on the hospitalization rates and death rates. The vaccines are already in production pending FDA approval. We will pull through. Wear and mask and wash your hands.

Remember, the early models had the US death rate pegged at 2.2 to 2.5 million for a previously unknown virus with no vaccine. [thumbup][ninja]
