11. Well, I'm in Northeastern New York in a fairly rural county

And we did have good leadership during most of this pandemic, mask mandates to enter any store or business and a quarantine for anyone coming in from out-of-state. But the mask mandate for the vaccinated was rescinded at the beginning of July - just in time for "tourist season" here - and it's now "the honor system" according to the signs I've read. Good luck with that. And everything was open with a vengeance this summer - last year everything was closed down.

There are mask mandates in all the schools for both in-school and on school buses, but there have already been reported cases causing quarantines in 3 school districts and school just started here last Thursday. So much for all the progress we made. At least anyone who works at the local hospital - and there are Covid cases there, 81 deaths since May 2020 - must be vaccinated by the end of this month. Better late than never. I have 2 friends who work there and they both were able to get vaccinated last January. Too many are acting as if the pandemic is over.
