My wife asked if a lot of elderly in Florida feel the same way and she said every older Floridian she knows basically never leaves their home because they are terrified to do so. Not just because of the virus, but because of the lack of restrictions. So my wife’s question is: Is Florida’s numbers really that much better or are the older Floridians just not leaving their homes while the younger Floridians are running around without a care in the world, old people be damned? Are the younger people spreading it around and just not getting tested? I find it hard to believe florida is just naturally more immune to a highly contagious virus. Only thing that would make sense if everyone has already had it.
    Anecdotal, but I was just in St. Pete for 4 days. Lots of elderly walking around in restaurants, etc. in fact, I’d say a bigger percentage of younger people wearing masks than elderly.

    Same. My flight was packed both times, to and from Florida. Airport in general looked like things were back to normal.

    Down in Miami Beach...lots of concern. It's out of control, not only with the lack of compliance with restrictions (DeSantis doesn't allow fines to be enforced), but crime. Mayor wants to shut down the whole entertainment district...permanently.
    I remember the outrage of people going to the beach last year at this time. And apparently, the only state in the country with beaches! Lol

    I'm almost 70 in Florida and vaccinated. I now wear a mask when required and never when not required. I was super careful before the vaccines. I don't go crazy. I wouldn't go to a mosh pit. But we dine inside without masks.

    Yeah, Florida wasn't any different than Ohio and Indiana in terms of mask usage. There is more outside dining, but I didn't really feel any different.

    NY and NJ are currently struggling. They've put us into a case plateau as a nation. Hopefully we're pumping out vaccinations quick enough to keep the NE's issues from spreading.

    NJ has seen cases come up in the last month, but on average its 1000 cases higher than it was on 2/23. Obviously we want to see cases go down, but it's not keeping the national cases on a plateau or anything.

    NY never came down as fast as the rest of the nation even in January and February, but they are declining. Their average cases are about 1000 less than they were a month ago.

    Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Delaware and West Virginia have all seen some increases in the last 3 weeks too, but nothing crazy.

    The plateau is only in the last week or so though.

    NY is putting up a nice looking number today (at least compared to yesterday). Much appreciated for 7 day average purposes.

    I'm gonna interject in this thread as we are comparing states.

    ND and SD were the poster children for bad COVID behavior and for the longest time they were at the top of the charts as far as deaths per capita goes. But their cases and deaths have absolutely bottomed out like no other state...and they have dropped in the polls to around 10th in deaths per capita. It will be interesting to see where they end up when the dust settles.

    They've both done great with vaccinations and couple that with how bad they were hit earlier...these are the states where we may first see almost complete herd immunity.

    I'm certainly not saying "good job ND and SD"....but it's interesting.

    Given what we know now, yeah, good job North/South Dakota. If facts come to light later to change that, then fine. Of course these states can't be compared to states like FL and Cal but it goes to show there's not a one size fits all strategy for this thing

    The Mayor and city council of the biggest city in SD (Sioux Falls) implemented a mask mandate (city ordinance actually) on November 20th. That supplemented mask mandates already in place at the largest retailers and shopping centers (Seriously, you should see what Hot Topic will do if someone doesn't wear a mask properly. It's great.). The vaccine distribution system, driven by the two largest health care providers, piled on top to produce a far more rapid decrease in cases than what we would have expected given the state government's backwards and dangerous handling/non-handling of the pandemic.

    If there are "good jobs" to be handed out, they would go to the top health care providers, big box retailers/shopping centers, and smaller cities (like Brookings) who had the foresight to implement protection mandates sooner versus later.

    But to be clear, there was no reason the death toll should have spiked as it did. It should never, ever have had to get that bad to terrify people into taking a pandemic seriously (which is what happened- along with a LOT of really bad national press). That was a Covid denialist nightmare scenario; a real-life example of how ignorance, denialism, and inaction costs lives.

    Yeah. ND and SD botched this thing for the longest time.

    I guess what I really find interesting to see it that cases and deaths CAN bottom out which gives tremendous me hope.

    Again, this was a result of great vaccination strategy x horrible social distancing/no masks last year.

    Low density rural states have no business being the 10th ranked state in per capita deaths. Iíll allow that their ranks are falling - I do wonder how far.
