COVID-19 quarantine reactions/ coping......

Goes far, far, far beyond people going to Myrtle Beach.  BUT, the biggest problem is that Trump and the GOPers are pushing for beaches, bars, restaurants and everything else to open up - WIDE OPEN.  And of course the business community is pushing just as hard for full re-openings.

When you say "our slight increase," are you speaking as a South Carolinian?  The greatest increase in S.C. is actually in Greenville-other end of the state.

The West Virginia cases.  Governor  Justice  specifically named Myrtle Beach.

Interesting map.  Wonder what the statistics would be if the Deep South was separate area, say from VA/NC border to NM border?

Thanks.  Although I grew in that area of S.C. have rarely been back since I left.  Myrtle Beach has never appealed to me - far too touristy.  Although all those Yankee and Canadian dollars do help the state-gas, restaurant and lodging taxes in addition to sales taxes.  Not to mention property taxes on commercial properties they utilize.

Ironically a lot of people from the Upstate area of S.C. do go to MYB and other coastal areas, so I am sure that is contributing to rise in Greenville SC area.  Not to mention the sorry state of the interstate between Spartanburg and the Coast.

WaPo: ....... In the hours before his Tulsa rally, Trump's campaign directed the removal of thousands of stickers from arena seats that were intended to establish social distance.
 
The removal contradicted instructions from the arena's management.

If this woman really has COPD and refuses to wear a mask and then catches covid-19--

She will then find out what a real breathing problem is.

If she has COPD from smoking and catches Covid, she won't live long enough to regret it.

(doubt she ever gave a rats behind to begin with.)

Starr County, Texas, had COVID-19 under control with quarantine restrictions, closing businesses before the state ordered closures, ramping up testing, and implementing a curfew with fines and jail penalties.
 
Then, Gov. Abbott overrode the local decisions.
 

A Texas border county had the coronavirus under control. Then the governor stepped in.

"They took the teeth away from us to be able to enforce anything," the city manager of the county's largest city says.
 

the reopenings created a “false sense that it was OK to get together to go out, to gather between families,” and that led to a significant increase in cases, Vasquez said.

"The governor erred," Carlos Martinez, a Rio Grande City restaurant worker, said. "We were doing very well" under the stricter regulations.

He acknowledged the stricter rules had an economic impact on businesses, but said "health is more important" because "without health, there is no economy.".........

Justice Department Issues Warning About Fake Mask Exempt Cards

........A recently issued alert by the department is urging the public not to heed information printed on the fraudulent cards, which purport to carry the authority of the "Freedom to Breathe Agency," which is neither a federal nor a state agency.

The fake card states that wearing a mask will incur mental or physical risk for the holder.........

"Freedom to Breathe Agency," sounds like a place to complain about specific police abuse. :blink:

In contrast to Trump,

Pence (finally) encourages wearing masks to prevent coronavirus spread

"We encourage everyone to wear a mask in the affected areas," Pence said.
"Where you can't maintain social distancing, wearing a mask is just a good idea."
 
......& In a Sunday interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar warned “the window is closing” to take action to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

"We have to act and people and individuals need to act responsibly," he said.

"We need to social distance, we need to wear face coverings if we are in settings where we cannot social distance, particularly in these hot zones.".........
