As one that has worked in both of these professions, currently the retail end of it, I can say I am more worried about the masses of people that are here on vacation that I have seen in just the last few days that refuse to wear a mask, dont know what 6ft. is, and think "hey lets see if we can get up a group of more than 10 to go grocery shopping".I have worked beside the same people everyday for the last 2 months and would know if someone/any one in that group of people suddenly was missing and possibly sick. SO far I have been lucky and no one that I work with has gotten CoViD. But with what I witnessed this morning while trying to do my own grocery shopping, its not the locals you need to worry about. I sucked it up and went to work everyday for the last 2 months and wasnt really worried because all the locals coming in were doing the right thing but after that shopping trip this morning I feel a leave of absence because I dont feel safe anymore might be coming.
The threat from tourists bringing it here is a given. I was referring to gatherings or situations where a single person or two comes in close contact with many others and could spread it to a bunch of people. The places this is going to be happening here is in restaurants, bars, and shops. If I hear of any weddings going on that would be very disturbing.

I have a question: if you live with one or more people and none of you have gotten sick or shown symptoms, isn't it logical that none of you are asymptomatic because that person didn't pass it to the others in the household?

Exactly. That is the way I feel about the people I work with everyday. None of us or our family members have gotten sick so .....

That's a lot of new test results. I wonder if the free drive-up results are starting to come in.

For the first time in months there are no reported deaths from Covid in Lombardy, Italy, the hardest hit region in Europe.

If you remove the nursing home cases, and non-residents, you'll see we've only had a few in SoWal (including Freeport). I'm interested in seeing are all the results from the free drive-up testing, which is still going on. New positives might be due to that and increased testing.
