My feelings are all hurt.

My 3rd graders has been on the bus and in school since Aug 11.  So far so good.  6th grader is in school half the time, e learning other half.  1 positive case reported across the k-8 in that time.  A couple dozen cases at the 4,500 student high school, which is a total hybrid model.   Pretty tight pods and lunches.  My 3rd grader only comes into 'close' contact with 24 other kids.   She's also been tested.   Negative. 

Meanwhile volleyball goes on, I wear mask 100% of time, kids can remove during play, many still wear them.  We had kids stay home on precautionary measures, but no big issues.

Thanks for all the well wishes. All my family lives here in the same small town.  Tons and tons of cousins, aunts, uncles, the whole family. We’ve been here since at least the 1850’s which is when they came over in the boat from England and landed at Galveston. Somebody mentioned the brain eating amoeba, we’re in the next town over. 

My mom is doing much better, but my dad is still in the hospital on a ventilator. He had some fairly serious health issues before all this started, so it’s really not surprising that he has not fared well. And of course he took almost no precautions to protect himself. 

We’re hoping for the best.  I will keep you updated.

I don't really understand why this is happening now in Europe suddenly.  The climate is not really a factor as yet.

Italy is up modestly, but France, Spain, and the UK are all up sharply to very high levels.

The wife thinks the French are "ungovernable" and will do whatever they feel like and that contributes to this latest outbreak.  She was commenting back in August about how they all went on vacation as usual and partied hard.  There could be something to that, but now they are approaching a true crisis phase.  

Spain and the UK are in similar dire straits.  Italy not quite yet.  The "area under the curve" model is incorrect as there are significant differences by country.

Germany is amazing in this thing.

I guess I left Wisconsin at the right time.

It's happening in Europe because those countries stopped adhering to the super-strict restrictions and guidelines.  People accustomed to living in free countries can only be suppressed for so long, and then behavior returns to the norm.  The Germans have always been great rule followers, but it can't last forever even there.  Eventually they'll see a second wave, unless the government imposes martial law, permanently.

And I disagree that the "area under the curve" model is incorrect.  This second wave is actually more proof that it IS correct, but that those countries locked down too hard and too fast, and not enough of their population was infected early, so they had not yet exhausted their area under the curve.  Eventually they will.  Eventually we all will, and then this novel coronavirus retreats to just one more in a group of viruses that affect humans annually.  It won't be as severe, because it will have already affected the most vulnerable in the population.

This virus isn't going away.  Ever.  We will have no choice but to learn to live with it among us.

I'm more optimistic than you are.

Anyway, my son is in town but he can't come over. He has been exposed to the virus and is holed up in a hotel for now. Getting test this morning, so we'll see. He drove our other car down for us. It would suck to not see him.

I'm not pessimistic, just realistic, based on all of our previous encounters with coronaviruses.

And it's not really doom and gloom-- once the novelty wears off, it won't do anywhere near as much damage.  Based on hospitalization and death rates in Europe now during their second wave, compared to the devastation it caused in the first wave, there's evidence suggesting we're already on our way to that outcome, globally.

I hope you get to see your son!
