Yes, because it was very political. I had a sentence removed from one of mine because of that. I knew yours would be gone.
What I said in mine stands for EVERY state that is now trending up. It's time for people to realize that THEY are the problem if they cannont keep themselves socially distant and masked. If a person HAs to go to a bar so bad, rhwy are the problem . WE, as a country, are in DEEP DO DO. It's time to be real.

Since the data is lacking and people are unable to get tested in a timely manner, it may be that the spikes are also due to family gatherings starting earlier than the openings of bars (which was quite late in my county, Los Angeles). Or outbreaks in workplaces or within households.

I think only a week had passed since bars opened in Los Angeles and the press started to comment on California's rising numbers.

Actually, in LA County they were "officially" closed over both the Memorial and July 4 weekends. But again, no enforcement in LA City (which includes Venice but not Santa Monica). Also there were no "official" fireworks shows, which cut down on the beach crowds. We got to endure hours of illegal fireworks over the neighborhoods instead.

Without any real data due to limited availability of testing, there is no way to really know where the virus is spreading. It's all just speculation based on anyone's particular POV. Some experts point to business openings and being forced to go back to work (especially Hispanic and Black lower-income populations where there is a pattern in those neighborhoods of crowded multi-generational housing). I believe East LA neighborhoods have some of the highest infection rates, at least of those tested.

Of course, if you don't live here, you probably subscribe to the image of Los Angeles as a bunch of blonde 20-somethings.

Beaches in San Diego were even open over the 4th of July, but amazingly, were not jam-packed, had about 2/3 of the numbers from last year and people were spaced out quite well.

I have not heard or read of "limited testing" in San Diego.

Most of the problem has been traced to bars and restaurants. The governor, whom most Californians think is handling this well, emphasized that the vast majority of them were doing everything right, nevertheless, all bars and indoor dining and indoor dining are closed for three weeks in the 22 counties in the penalty box.

The ultimate responsibility is on individual people to do the right thing. Wear a mask, wash your hands and stay physically distanced from people who do not live in your household.

Monterey County rolled back yesterday. A large percentage of cases are in the agricultural industry which of course never shutdown. Salinas makes up about a third of our population but has almost 60% of our cases so I think it's mostly essential workers who never stopped working and those who returned to work with the reopenings.

Of course the young invincibles who get drunk probably aren't social distancing with strangers, LOL. It's a convenient point of focus to take the attention off of other lapses.

Imperial County is not a pretty picture but won't get as much national media play as foreshortened beach photos.

Apparently San Diego got added to the Gub'ners shut down list yesterday.

Got that right. I don't get any pleasure out of any state having to close up again. I had a lot of admiration for CA closing down as it did. Our DSIL owns 3 restaurants and believe me, they have been hit hard. One of our grandkids is to be a college senior--I would wish for her to have a terrific final year, but that isn't going to happen.


"Of course, if you don't live here, you probably subscribe to the image of Los Angeles as a bunch of blonde 20-somethings."'
I'm just not sure what it is that you want from this argument. I am certainly not happy staying home forever, away from a very precious 5 year old grandchild, who said to her mother today

"I miss people and rainbows".
