A lower death count than the prior month.
I agree, but at what cost?

what should the leaders do and not do to make sure this goal is achieved?

not allow kids in classrooms?

masks mandatory everywhere outside your residence?

I think our goal should be to open up as much as possible considering hot spot etc

Practice safe spacing and using masks while trying to open up

clamp down on hot spots when they happen

we should not just close down and do nothing

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

the pressing issue at this time is education

K-12 and college

I say send them back with precautions for anyone at risk and alternates for those that are unwilling to send kids to school.

I know this is not an easy task for administrators or teachers/faculty

And based on the outbreak at that YMCA camp in Georgia, schools will be back to full distance learning by the end of September.

Open up as much as possible, while keeping the most vulnerable people home. The problem is, those people are sick of staying home too, and they go out anyway.

A mandate against them going out would likely be met with lawsuits, based on age discrimination.

That's what I think is going to happen.

This should have happened a long time ago, and we wouldn't be here.

Politicizing this, making this some weird "liberty" thing cost our country months.

Don't even say "when social distancing isn't possible."  Just masks at all time, no matter what, when you are outside your residence.  We'd have had this thing totally knocked out in May.

Eh. You all know I'm very pro-mask.

But I'm not wearing a damn mask when I'm walking my dog around the block in quiet suburbia. I don't have to be within 20 feet of anyone, and even if I see someone there's plenty of options to go around giving them a wide berth [and I do].

And I still think one of the bigger issues is household mixing. This is something that STILL isn't getting enough attention. People worry about fleeting encounters "in public" with strangers while wearing a mask, when there should be more worry about being in close proximity to family or friends from outside your household, for extended time (hours), without a mask. 

I'm guilty of that one, in that we have had visits with family off and on during this thing. However we try very hard to be safe in the entire rest of our lives so that the risk of actually having COVID and transmitting it to my in-laws would be minimal on the few occasions we see them.

The problem is every exception is a slippery slope.  Our kid's little league initially said parents had to unless they were "socially distanced."  Which led to people sitting less close together, but still wandering the fields and the concessions without masks.

I agree it's the outdoor cookouts and stuff like that, that are the most problematic "exceptions", but I'd rather just suck it up for a month than keep dealing with people acting like whatever they are doing fits an exception.

I'm on a dock, in a marina, and it's busy on weekends. None of us are going on anyone else's boats like we used to, but we gather to eat and drink in the evenings. We keep our distance for sure, and have gone to extra lengths when it comes to serving food and such.

But still. Something could happen. Hasn't yet, but that doesn't mean it can't. Just need to be as careful as possible.

And I know I'm guilty too.  There is a group of 6 families.  We do fires most weekends, and we set our chairs up far apart.  But we also all have kids, and after a few, eh, we start moving so we aren't just talking to our spouses anymore.  It's outdoors exclusively, but I know we shouldn't.  I started wearing a mask to it last Friday.

I feel much more safe outdoors than I would indoors. It's been really hot and humid lately too, so that helps.

We have a gallon of hand sanitizer that gets used constantly. I like that too.
