Cleveland, GA is in White County, which not long ago was 100.00% "white".  I suspect that is not the case today, it probably is %5 Hispanic or so, but chicken processing and growing area north of the real Gainesville.

The north Georgia people were against secession in general, had no slaves, and did not want anyone of color anywhere nearby at all.  Deliverance and all.

There’s also a Cleveland, TN. My wife went to college down there.  Her brother still lives there. Just visited him and his family on the 4th.
I wonder how many Clevelands are named for President Grover as opposed to Moses Cleaveland.  Probably all but one.
I'm surprised to see that Cleveland proper is smaller than Tulsa proper.  391,000 compared to 401,000.  Population of the metro areas isn't even close, though.  2.06 million vs. 0.99 million.


Our local school board is starting school on September 8 but also offering an online option to families who prefer that.  Heard that around 600 students have signed up for that so far.

My kids’ private school is starting back the same date with no online options, but with some social distancing precautions and other modifications in place.
"Some social distancing precautions"?  I wonder what that means, exactly.

Eastern Tennessee was much the same way.

They're removing all tables from our classrooms and replacing them with individual desks, that are to be spaced out 4-6' apart.  
I'm not sure where that money is coming from, because it sure as hell hasn't been provided by any new legislation.

If North Georgia and East Tennessee had as much balls as West By God Virginia, there might be 4 more Senators right now.

This to me is shocking. 

"So far, Iowa has conducted 443 COVID-19 tests on athletes, coaches and other staff members in the department. As of Monday, 25 of those came back positive, although the university is not specifying how many involved athletes." This is a 5.5% positive test rate. The virus is circulating much more than most people in Iowa understand.  U of Iowa coaches, staff, and athletes tested

That is is that low or that high?

5.5% of the population of Iowa athletics tested regardless of symptoms since circa June 4 seems very high to me.

As of July 12, 2020, 401,700 positive tests in New York state out of a population of 19,540,000, which is 2.056%. New York City was the epicenter for two months.

This is some data I have not seen before, testing of a rep sample of the population.  Now, Iowa athletes are not really a rep sample of course, but it is a sample.

If 1 in 20 of the rep pop in IOWA are positive, it's obvious this thing is way way way out of "control", any semblance thereof, and we're silly to think we can somehow mitigate now.  We can try and protect the elderly and frail and that's it.

We dined out last night, outside, the restaurant was open in defiance of the mayor's order.

You were also in defiance of the mayor's order. Just sayin'.

This thing will not be "under control" until there is a vaccine.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Yeah, I don't care obviously.  The governor stated her order is unenforceable and obviously the police around here are "busy" doing real stuff.

The bar next to us was lively last night.  I guess it's a restaurant.

Was that post meant for the 2020 thread?  Seems a bit of a non sequitur?

Anyway, our school district is now hinting they'll delay the first day from the original August 13th, to early September, and will most likely be 100% online throughout the first month.  They still have not cited any scientific data for their plans.

this is meaningless without knowing how many total tests were performed

for example what if only 500,000 tests were done then the number of positive would be a lot more important
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.
