My wife is going to hate this news if it means she'll have to go into the office on a regular basis.

I kid, partially.

Wow nothing on this thread in five days

Says a lot

Anyways it seems like the US has finally broken the back of this scourge

About 300 dead from it reported yesterday..lowest number since late March..

It only took 112,000 lives (reported) + around 50,000 unreported, snd shutting down the nation with tens of millions losing their jobs (most I think will get them back) but we finally seem to have things somewhat under control

I assume people will keep dying from it but in decreasing numbers

How badly was this bungled? Boggles the mind...they told people not to wear face masks for months!

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but i wouldn't say broken the back yet. 373 yesterday, but that's a Sunday count. I'd expect double that on weekdays this week.

Hopefully we are not opening too much too soon. And hopefully people will wear masks indoors, everywhere. And stay 6+ feet apart. Some communities seem to take the mask and distance things more seriously than others.

I think there's also going to be lots of crazy ass modifications to the school experience in the Fall. My kid is already bitching about it.

A look at what schools will be like in Massachusetts, in the Fall. Maximum of 10 students in a classroom at one time. How is that going to work?

there is some serious pandemic fatigue going on.  i live in the kind of place that you'd think would adhere to medical recommendations (this region has been traumatized by the early days of the pandemic), but at this weekend's BLM protest folks were not maintaining 6 feet - and not even trying.  everyone did have a mask on and it was outside, so overall the risk was low... but organizers made of a point of asking everyone to keep 6' apart, and that never happened.

Agree...serious pandemic fatigue

I think soon we just have to get on with it but with some new procedures in place and virus weakening I donít think deaths will spike back up

Key is preventing super spreader events

Which means bands better start hiring themselves out to play church services and BLM rallies because those are the only large group gatherings that seem to be allowed...

1093 US deaths today. Still got a long way to go to knock this out. And nobody seems to die in Spain anymore. Maybe they don't keep track anymore.

At Northam's presser yesterday (I tuned in to see what he had to say about schools), he said to expect big number of cases soon...because they had recently increased testing and there was a backlog of results.

Arlington is opening-up

arlingtonva@ArlingtonVA
Under Phase 2, restaurant and beverage establishments may offer indoor dining at 50 percent occupancy, fitness centers may open indoor areas at 30 percent occupancy and certain recreation and entertainment venues without shared equipment may open with restrictions.
The County is reopening its dog parks, basketball courts and volleyball courts on Friday, June 12, for people who practice social distancing and follow posted guidelines.


They can't just say bars...beverage establishments?!

entertainment venues without shared equipment ....so does this mean the Brothels will stay closed?

There are no bars in Virginia ó theyíre all classed restaurants. Beverage establishments refers to breweries/wineries/distilleries/etc.
