Every decision counts. Even the little ones.

quote:
A local bar opening in a rural Illinois county in early February was tied to at least 46 new coronavirus cases and a school closure that affected 650 children, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.

The county’s per capita case count doubled as a result of the bar opening, the CDC said. Before the event, the county had an average of up to 42 cases per 100,000 people over seven days. That daily case average more than doubled 14 days after the opening, the CDC said.

The case, highlighted in a research paper released Monday, provides more evidence of how weddings and gatherings at restaurants and nightclubs have the potential to become super-spreading events for Covid-19.

After routine case investigation, local health officials identified a cluster of cases linked to a handful of people at the indoor bar opening, including one attendee who was diagnosed with asymptomatic Covid-19 the day before and still went. Four people who had symptoms and later tested positive for the virus were also there that night.

Wait, he knew he was asymptomatic--that he had the virus--and went anyway?

That's incredibly reckless. There are stupid driver laws where people who drive around road blocks and get stuck in floods have to pay for their own rescue. Seems like this is a similar event. They should have to pay the cost of tracing, lost revenue, etc.

I do not understand some people.

We should all avoid, "super-spreader events."

Personally, I think this behavior is remarkably ignorant.

That's a high-class air conditioning condenser installation right there, and the location of the disconnect switch is in violation of national code.

Not real big on rules, this guy.

There's a lot of wishful thinking involved in some of these decisions. What you want to be true is not necessarily what is true. unfortunately, some innocent people, school children included, pay the price for such thinking.

Where I live, Staten Island, has the highest infection rate in NYC. Locals drive to New Jersey where they can sit 10 to a table in a crowded restaurant. The local Facebook food group shows people routinely seeking information on who can cater a party in a private home for 20 people. And baby showers, communion parties, etc.

Small wonder.
