Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Some interesting plot complications in NOLA. TX and FL has issued laws that require anyone from NOLA to self quarantine for 14 days if they cross the state border. They are actually stopping cars with LA plates and making sure they are aware of this new law. https://www.nola.com/news/coronavirus/art...

Another common trend -- 95% of people who have died so far had an underlying health condition
Also 75% of the deaths were in people age 65 & older.

Re: Rural property, but the locals don't want you there ...

I alternate between a rural area in MS and NOLA. The income disparity of MS is great and when I bought the place I went out of my way to establish a connection to the community. That way I do have people there who know me. I understand and accept that I will always be an "outsider". If you want to u...

All ok in NOLA so far. The headlines scream that we are in the top 4 "hotspots". The city of NOLA is putting employees on paid leave. https://www.nola.com/news/coronavirus/article_c76ab0d6-6d4c-11ea-b52a-d77d7fecbeb0.html Meanwhile the hotels & restaurants are furloughing people. https://www.nola.co...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Note headline in NOLA.com reads :
Louisiana coronavirus cases see largest single-day spike to 1,172 with surge of test results
So test results for yesterday are in and % of positives has declined to 19.7% from 23%.

These are again people who are symptomatic. A very low positive rate.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Cases and deaths are meaningless information when not placed in context of population. All reports are inflated because there are people who have it and carry/heal without testing. Death rate is misleading without knowing the deceased decade and prior health condition. Not saying this isn't a bad t...

I went to Walmart closest to my farm. Lots of bare shelves. Cold cuts and meat were gone but still a lot of ham and frozen chicken. The eggs were sold out. The bread aisle had a lot of bread.
