    I think getting a unified approach to demonstrating safety and care for the health of the public during all of this, covid.. confusion etc.., could bring a lot of positive impact on the community, restaurants, employees and employers, locals and visitors. We thrive on our industry, let's do right and show everyone in the country we know how and care about keeping people safe and businesses functioning. Just a thought

    Did this last report come with any details about why the numbers shot up from 1 to 32 in one day? I know I’m a stickler for logical explanations but numbers like these really invite more questions than they provide answers.

    There will always be a lag in reports of these statistics due to basic human response/reporting time etc.. with margins of error accounting for deviations in reporting day to day. The trend analysis and charting are great to look at without having to focus on specific +/- 1 differences. Looking at numbers alone can definitely be confusing =)

    From 1 per day to 32 is not confusing. “Suspicious” is the word that comes to mind.

    Just saying stats can deviate a lot if there is no real consistent reporting structure or reliable control methods. 32 is a large deviation, saying it increased 32 in one day may have some literal issues, why trend analysis is preferred for me =)

    Honest question, and apologies if the answer is obvious, but cannot seem to find anything on it after a good bit of searching - is there a comprehensive list of the Walton communities they use which is available anywhere? Would like to see who is still reporting -0-, but need that list to do it and scratching my head a bit with the reported data, as it includes a mix of formally-incorporated towns (e.g., DeFuniak Springs), unincorporated towns (e.g., Gaskin), etc.

    Closest thing I could find thus far is the voting precint map (https://www.votewalton.com/Portals/Walton/Documents/Maps/CountyVotingPrecinctsMap_2019.pdf). Interesting if that is it, since Point Washington and Rosemary show nothing yet (other than any potential "non-residents," of course).

    Thx!

    There seem to be a couple of maps.

    This one offers a view by zip code and on the testing tab, a ratio of % positive to total tested. Experience

    This one offers the county (and country) and has some different information than the other.

    No details or explanation except that these numbers do not include cases from private labs or local medical offices such as Doc Smiley in Seagrove who reported 20 positive cases last week.

    We do not know the real numbers.

    We will probably have to work through a transition where they start incorporating private lab data. It would hope that means also adding some past data if it wasn't included and if if does we will see a big shift in numbers.

    Maybe we all are getting fixated on the numbers. I know we have an innate need to try to grasp the facts. The battles on social media about "this study and that study" are getting so absurd. Everyone has to understand we are in a crisis, and we have to put aside petty differences of opinion and pull together. When you see people like Mitch McConnel and Mike Pence and all the Secret Service officers wearing masks, that should tell you that this is real. I doubt there will ever be a way to understand and believe the numbers, especially the ones coming from South Florida, so we just have to just concentrate on getting everyone to star wearing masks. It may sound trivial to some people, but it really is just about all we can do. We have to not get militant about it. Perhaps just handing them out in front of Publix and see if we get some takers. I don't know, but I felt like putting in my 2 cents.

    A LOT of bodies at public walkover between Seaside and Watercolor. No room with more than arms-length in any direction. Grayton was busy, but manageable. In 23 years of being here I’ve never see it so packed...with little or no protection. We are set for waves we won’t enjoy...
