The rules are relaxing a little here. But the rhetoric of the government is that they're using a tone that's making it sound like we're out the other side so people are relaxing too much and following rules less. It's pretty unnerving. Plus the government is clearly setting up to blame "the people" for any resurgence in cases, saying he's trusting on us or relying on us to do the right thing or whatever, rather than taking any responsibility for speaking in a manner that implies it's over or potentially lifting restrictions too early (or for putting restrictions down too late in the first place).

San Francisco sent a series of text messages explaining that the great reopening has been delayed due to a spike in COVID-19 cases. Who could have possibly predicted this?

Not to mention the fact that blind supporters of the idiot are also claiming it is the people's fault. When there should be strict guidelines, and even laws, put in place that outright says you cannot do things, rather than blatantly wishy-washy statements.

So Texas is taking on the Florida approach

Texas Medical Center hospitals have stopped reporting key metrics showing the stress rising numbers of COVID-19 patients are placing on their facilities, undermining data that policy makers and the public have relied upon during the pandemic to gauge the spread of the coronavirus.

The change came one day after the hospitals reported their base intensive care capacity had hit 100 percent for the first time during the pandemic, with projections showing the institutions — which together comprise the world’s largest medical complex — were on pace to exceed their “unsustainable surge capacity” by July 6.

this surely won't make anything worse

Here is Connecticut things are going well as far as containing things. Hospitalizations are almost under 100 after a peak of almost 2000, deaths are down to maybe a few a day, the positive infections from testing is about 1% and the infection rate(or R number) is about 0.7. We are basically the best off state in the country.

On the flip side, I have a little bit of a scratchy throat and some very minor congestion, so I fear I may be part of the 1% :(

This is why I kinda hope I do have it, and get over it.

I will be on the front line of cracking skulls to get through to idiots.

I'd still rather not get it

I was planning to go to the beach on Saturday but I'm a bit nervous about that even though things are looking up here in Maryland

They test us at work for covid once a week but 4th of July feels kinda dangerous

No way in hell I would touch a beach this weekend, in CT they have been very good at limiting visitors, but even still.

Also, got tested today. The process wasn't nearly as terrible as I thought it would be.

Yeah my mom lives in Bristol and now that she's undergoing chemo I wanted to drive up and see her, but even though Maryland isn't a hotspot state I'm still kinda iffy on that too

Ah that sucks, always a tough decision to make.

But if you are getting tested that much I feel like you would be ok seeing her.

Adding to this

When the mask is only covering your chin and not your mouth or nose, it is completely useless to both yourself and others

fixed. So many people wandering around with their masks drooping below their nose, sometimes even their mustaches sticking out above it. when you sneeze, where does the sneeze go? when you inhale, what filters the air going into your nose?

Masks can be uncomfortable. So are helmets and condoms and seatbelts. We wear all of these things to prevent things that are worse than uncomfortable.

Well my group didn't get called for jury duty, but I feel it's time for another update from the court side of things.

Courts vary from county to county.

In Sacramento, Jail dockets, violations of probation, and arraignments are done over zoom. Most other criminal cases get continued. This greatly backs up the three court rooms that are taking cases. Courts that used to lock their doors at 3:30 or earlier now are going to five PM or longer. Traffic is near nonexistent. Family law is entirely by zoom.

Most every county allows for a telephonic or zoom appearance. DAs and PDs routinely take them up on it, but for Placer County (and maybe El Dorado). El Dorado county is a bit nuts with its judges refusing to wear masks.

Almost all the seating is marked and/or removed to enforce social distancing. This includes in trial rooms. Judges and clerks sit behind plexiglass in busier rooms. In Sacramento, they may not even be in the same room as the jailed defendant.
