    Just read that the State’s R 0 is still above 1 which isn’t good. We opened too early.

    Goose the governor doesn’t care about the fancy science. He doesn’t even care about infection or death rates. Hospitalizations is the number he is using to make decisions

      Disagree with you there Jim. Hogan has done a good job in my opinion. Bottom line is that the virus is still here and it ain’t going away anytime soon.

        > I’m not going to let Hogan off that easily. He is proud to announce the expanded testing sights but has yet to name any in Allegany County.
        He is not the Governor of the entire State, just everything East of Frederick.
