One of the schools for my kids (the charter) just said today that if Orange County gets put back into the most restrictive tier, it does not mean they're forced back to distance learning. And that campus, despite having a couple of self-quarantines that I know of for possible exposure, has no confirmed cases at this time.

I don't know what the public district will do if we go back into that tier.
A couple hours ago... "You're doing amazing, sweetie!" 

Now: We're canceling school tomorrow out of an abundance of caution and we'll let you know what happens next.

Thus far during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sioux City has had more known cases of the virus per capita than any metro area, except Bismarck, North Dakota, according to a New York Times analysis.

The Times noted in a story published Thursday that although other places have had "bigger outbreaks, worse days and faster surges," few have experienced the "sustained pain" that the Sioux City metro has.

Nearly 9 percent of Siouxlanders have tested positive, according to the analysis.


On Thursday, Woodbury County, which had a 14-day COVID-19 positivity rate of 22.9 percent, added 136 new cases of the virus, according to Siouxland District Health Department. Its case total now stands at 8,824, according to state data. No additional deaths were reported in the county, where 105 total residents have succumbed to the virus.

A total of 89 people with COVID-19 were hospitalized at either MercyOne Medical Center or UnityPoint Health, according to the district health agency, an increase of nine from Wednesday. Of those patients, 63 were hospitalized because they had COVID-19. Another 26 people in the hospital have the virus, but are hospitalized for other reasons. Of the total, 48 are Woodbury County residents.

Can we stop with this word?  There are proactive actions we can do and avoid to actually help with this thing. 
I miss my friends.  We do a weekly Houseparty app thing, where we talk and catch up and drink and joke.  It's not ideal, but it checks a box.

I get take-out and wash my hands every time I get home from going out into the world.

I wear a mask at all times when I leave my apartment.

I still get gas using a chlorox wipe as a glove.

These measure help me avoid covid AND help those I interact with not get covid.  It's not 100%, but they're proactive acts that are logically prudent.  No, I don't understand fatigue from doing logically prudent acts.

Hope is not a strategy.

Let's blame the post-Thanksgiving explosion on the weather, too.

Haha, laugh at Debbie Downer.  Insult me, just never accept the message.

Here's what stubbornness and hope and ignorance have gotten us:


Going to hit a quarter-million deaths in the U.S. early next week.  
But, you know, keep your fingers crossed.

And get back to me about the suicide rates because not everyone has a job in Government to fall back on  as their line of work is eliminated
