Anything in particular driving it?  Here in Texico, the increases were pretty clearly linked to opening up of risky indoor spaces like bars, combined with a public that began relaxing on distancing and mask-wearing.  Is it similar in Illinois?
another big factor is the Hidalgo County area which is in south Texas near the Mexican boarder

as of yesterday they have taken over 2nd place in deaths edging out Dallas county

not real sure whats driving this except the possibility of it being associated with migrant workers
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Yes, people are definitely crossing the border into Mexico, and bringing it back.  I know two people of Mexican descent now in Austin, that brought it back with them.  I'm sure it's a lot more common, the closer you get to the border.

Well I certainly wouldn't.  And I don't agree with the actions of those that would.

But, wow... shutting off power and water to private residences and businesses seems a bit of an overreach.  And when I say "a bit" I mean "unbelievably massive" overreach.

This is the stuff that gives credence to the fears on the far right.
Agree. That is really overstepping bounds.

I think a more appropriate response would be to station a bunch of overworked ICU nurses outside the house armed with RPGs, turn around, and say "no consequences for your actions..."

would you rather the city turn off city utilities to break up a party

OR

send in the SWAT team with clubs, rubber bullets, and smoke bombs, arrest everyone in sight and kneel on their necks while applying handcuffs?

the 2nd option is how they did it a month or so ago

It's possible that the warmer weather IS helping... which would be a pretty dire omen indeed, for the Fall and Winter.

I don't think the warmer weather is helping in hot/humid places like Florida. It's really hard to be outside right now, down there. So, people moved to indoor (AC) spaces, and the spread happened among those who are there year-round. Lots of FL population isn't even around right now (me).

That’s how they handled people having private  house  parties? I didn’t know that.

That's why we should expand to 8 teams and auto-bid P5 conference champions.

Objective metrics!
Ah . . . no.

Well the AIA has announced there will be fall sports in Arizona, Football games will start last week of Sept first week of Oct.

Good thing, I don't think I could survive a season without officiating football.

That said, still a long time to get there, I can see them changing their mind, Panic and fear is still in the air.
So's the coronavirus.

So we must keep the tradition of bodybag games. Let it be written, let it be done.

Yeah, but you have to understand...

Most of us are trying to be responsible, reduce the spread, in the hopes that if we all band together and do the right thing, maybe we can end this thing sooner rather than later...

...and then you have these jackasses ruining it for everybody.

You can maybe understand why we might not have a lot of sympathy for whatever is done to teach them a lesson...

I missed that. That’s brutal.
they didn’t even do that to the violent rioters

Hell, the people who have hit law-enforcement with sledgehammers, Molotov cocktails, laser beams in the eye, and IED‘s, how for the most part been allowed to do that and get away with it so you’re right we shouldn’t treat residents that badly if we’re going to let the riders light precinct on fire burn down buildings smashed windows and shoot people who disagree with them , Like what has been happening for 60 days and places like Seattle and Portland.

I would call some of you drama queens, but I think you are men. Start acting like men, drop the drama, and be reasonable.
