I hope that vaccine and mask mandates blunt the post-Labor Day surge I expect

Many colleges have imposed vaccine requirements:

And some states have imposed mask requirements for K-12 schools, i.e. Virginia:

BUT:

Out and about yesterday in Northern VA, I passed by a local farmers' market where just about no one was wearing a mask ((hey, we're outdoors, right)).

This weekend, there is an arts festival ((on the street)) in Arlington county.

And I'm sure that a lot of the college football crowds are not current college students.

BUT: A few miles from here, when I mailed bills, everyone covered up entering the lobby ((one wore a face shield)).

We'll see what happens by autumn equinox.

And if the Congressional baseball charity fundraiser ((29 Sep)) occurs on schedule.

1. Florida State opens its football season tonight against Notre Dame

The stadium holds a little over 82,000 people and it will probably be full. I wonder how many people will die as the result of attending the game and the associated drinking and partying? Of course, being Florida, I am sure DeSantis will keep us safe.

2. I was seeing lots of full stadiums as I scrolled around last night and no masks.

Think we're in for a world of hurt within 2 weeks, the virus was already exploding in FL, more people got vaccinated and it went down a bit but I expect it to coming roaring back because of underage children in school & no mask mandate that cant be overridden by parents plus the large outdoors events with no masks.

3. Based on the crowds at opening college football games, I doubt that it will. nt
