CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

“There is still a lot of transmission in this area and we need to be very vigilant,” Dr. David Dowdy, of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, said. “This is not going away and we all need to do our part.”

“It’s harder for us to control, and that we really do depend more and more on everyone following the rules, wearing a mask and keep [your] distance,” Dr. Dowdy added.

    ……and that’s what happens when you reopen too soon (especially COVID spreader sites AKA bars) and open beaches to let people from out of state flood in, bringing COVID from states that have more than we do. All those gatherings of people not wearing masks? They spread it. Reopen schools and it will really explode, although I am guessing a lot of teachers and staff will refuse to go back & a good many parents will not send their kids because they care about their health..
