    Unfortunately as I keep saying & have said for 2 months….Here it comes, just wait.
    (by the way, in 1.5 weeks I will be able to say I have said this for 3 months) WAKE UP!!

    > You can repeat yourself until you’re blue in the face. Any thinking person should see by now that this is far from over.
    Many people just continue to ignore reality and live in their little dream world.
    29 new positive cases this week and some people continue to ignore the need to wear a mask in public places. I just saw it again last night when I went to pick up a pizza at my local carry out, despite the signs on the door to wear a mask. What are we to do?

  3. HK:

    Many new cases but no hospitalizations. At the beginning of the pandemic, we were told that we needed to flatten the curve so the hospitals weren’t overwhelmed. It seems like we are achieving that. The death rate continues to fall, which is another good sign. If we remain vigilant, wear masks, and continue to social distance, maybe we can return to normal in 2021.

    It’s not only ignorance when customers don’t wear a mask but even worse when employers at Surplus City don’t enforce their employees to wear a mask. You are serving the public How hard is it to wear a mask to help protect others

    > The Maryland Emergency Management Agency, Maryland Department of Health and Maryland State Police announced on Thursday the toll-free COVID Prevention Line is 833-979-2266, or email prevent.covid@maryland.gov.

    > Sorry, I should have explained. This phone number and email were set up to report violations of the state Covid spread prevention rules. While it is unlikely you can report the individual dickhead you cite, you can report the business and they will get a bit of encouragement to enforce the rules that their sign shows they endorse.

    So there has been 336 cases 18 of which has passed away so that drops the number to 318. I guess my question none of the people before the 39 that just tested positive never got better or don’t anyone keep track of that!! Why don t you keep the running total of people still infected morons!!

  8. Jay:

    Wrong HK. We’ve been averaging well over 1000 deaths a day for a while. As has been pointed out many times, we have 4% of the world’s population and 25% of the cases and deaths with no end in sight. There are reasons for that, not the least of which is that we have a moron in the WH who could care less about how many get sick or die. He is soul-less and corrupt and accepts no responsibility for anything.

    2% 0f those tested have had Covid. 2%, two percent, how else can we say this. That’s not hospitalized. They got sick. I mask up in public. I try to maintain social distancing. If you comply, that’s all that really matters. Love and take care of the elderly and those that are pre-dispositioned to be susceptible to severe reaction. Yes it’s going to be passed around and yes it’s worse than influenza. Let’s just get a grip and do our best not to get it.

    To those who continue to site their freedom as US citizens being the reason not to comply with CDC guidelines I would like to remind them that Freedom isn’t Free. Maintaining a Free society requires vigilance and cooperation.
