    I’m not sure why people look at and give credence to, “the numbers“, when we know that they don’t represent anything quantifiable.

    Your stance on the numbers doesn’t surprise me since your default position is willful ignorance. You have a propensity to fabricate your own reality. The health workers have tried to document the numbers to try to have an understanding of the problem we face in an attempt to solve the problem. The numbers may certainly not be accurate since they have been been increasingly co-opted by the Republican leadership on the state level and federal level. But the numbers are indeed a tool for understanding the virus and the politics interfering with recovery from the virus.

    Locals unite! Stay safe, be smart. Wear face coverings, keep your distance, wash your hands. Let's kick COVID butt.

    Check your temperature a couple of times a day, especially kids before they go to school. Keep them home if you have doubts. Let's take care of each other.
