Trump came a'calling because you're a swing state. You'll see his efforts to re-open economies will be more and more focused on states in which he needs to bolster Republican voter support. Let's all remember that this president lost the popular vote by 3 million and only won because of a few swing states, Pennsylvania being one. The glorious economy is Trump's silver bullet to win in November, so he'll be increasingly whipping up his base and encouraging the calls to get back to business as usual.

I'm very impressed with how our Massachusetts governor is being driven by actual data on how and when to open us back up. This article from the Boston Globe from 2 days ago is comprehensive.

I see we are still having 180 deaths from Covid a day! I'm staying hunkered, thanks.

Thanks to our Republican governor we have no reliable data for our state. Broward and Dade counties will start opening on Monday. We'll see how it goes.

Checking numbers: 1462 total deaths in my county (Middlesex), 5938 in the state (Massachusetts). 1045 new confirmed cases in MA just yesterday.

There were 4946 new cases on April 24. Numbers have gone down a lot, but...

I'm still staying home.

Yesterday, Florida had it's highest number of new cases thus far. And that's just the ones that were counted. But hey, Disney is open now

Yay, Disney! And that means tourists bringing their FL Covid back to every state in the US.

What were your numbers yesterday?

In MA, yesterday we had 420 newly reported cases and 35 deaths, and we just entered Phase 2 of reopening. Total numbers of cases- 102,000+. Deaths- 7,200+.

N.C. numbers continue slowly sliding upwards. At this rate I am going to have Artist living with me part time by fall. 🙃

FL had 1305 new cases and 53 deaths reported Friday, June 5.

Cases have been spiking. 4041 new cases in the past 72 hours.

61,488 total cases.
2,660 total deaths.

My "stepfather" went to the hospital a couple days ago. He has congestive heart disease and was having trouble breathing. He says they tested him four times for Covid. He was negative.

Those numbers are frightening, vin.

I'm glad your relative seems to not have Covid, but I wish him well otherwise.

Our "go hard, go early" policy worked, along with our border closure that's easy to enforce. No new cases for 15 days now. Still testing 3-4 thousand per day. Deaths remain at 22. Total positive cases were 1504, many of which were people returning from abroad. Our battle has changed, we now have to focus on the national economy sans most of our key "export" industries such as tourism and education, while we wait for a vaccine, because we will be incredibly vulnerable to a second wave since almost all of us haven't had it.
