life is pretty normal

June 18th, 2020 at 02:11 am

I sit here in our state and life is pretty normal now, most businesses are opening, hardly anyone wearing masks, still social distancing, disinfecting all hands/carts etc when you go into a store, still restricting how many people go into a store etc...but our state has 22 days no new cases...our borders open up in july to some states not all as some states are still having active cases, we had a BLM protest here over 5000 people attended, it was a peaceful protest and no-one got sick from the virus..I feel pretty lucky that our state is doing what is needed.

I do hope the US gets their numbers under control, it is so disheartening to see the riots/protests etc going on with this their isn't enough sick people there with the covid19 so rampant...I just hope that people realise how dangerous it can be maybe not for them but for those around them...or maybe they just don't care...but my thought and prayers are with everyone over there that the protests/riots cease and that you get the covid19 virus under control soon...its hard to watch so much devastation...I don't even watch the news anymore..never anything good...might be called burying my head in tha sand but for my mental health its what I must do...especially when it doesn't directly affect me...sounds selfish...I know...but I hope that things settle down for you all real soon....although apparently china is having a second flare up of the virus

    Just remember this is a huge country! The news is just a snapshot of what they want us to focus on. More testing going on, so more cases found, but not necessarily more hospitalizations.

    I live in the middle of one of the biggest areas of unrest--the place it all started--and I can confirm that not only are things calmer and being rebuilt, but also very very positive changes being made in our local government and community as a whole! Also, our COVID numbers haven't risen as a result of our many protests and rallies, so I think the protesters were good about social distancing safety measures. We may still see a flare-up, but many hospital beds have opened up during our decline in cases so we seem to be in good shape should that happen.

    I disagree! I believe science, as reported by mainstream news, is forcing us to focus on what we should, not on what we would like to see. Hospitalization rates ARE rising, and they are rising most in states that have been lax in their guidelines. People are simply not being responsible enough to circumvent the spread. The virus will spread wherever it can, and people who congregate in groups are giving it easy conduits.

    CB: I agree 100%!

    Ceejay74: I am so glad to hear that positive change is happening in your area! As I was watching the coverage of the peaceful protests throughout the country I was very happy to see so many wearing masks.

    It is possible to move forward with the economy in a responsible way. Our Governor in Maryland did it right, in my opinion. We are slowly and responsibly reopening, and our COVID numbers are still trending down.

    This is a deadly disease no matter how you look at it and I don't think we have seen the last of it...I'm hoping that in the future people will continue to social distance to a certain degree, still wash their hands etc all the time...this would help everyone...especially australia which is going into flu season...I'm hoping all the measures that are in place will make this flu season have low numbers...fingers crossed
