  • 7 weeks FUHS been back to school, no cases.How many were tested for COVID-19 last fall? Let me answer that, ZERO, but noway coronie was there, china is 18 hour flight away,impossible.

  • Looks like the 3 cases were in SoHum. It seems harder to manage all the corona realities, the fire realities, the winter coming…One Day at a Time One Day at a Time One day at a Time
    Happy Equinox

  • #CANCELCOVIDCULTURE

    You want to be forced to take an experimental vaccine?

    Keep your future kids/ grandkids away from mine.

  • Zero new deaths. Zero new hospitalizations.

    27 total known active cases in the county.

  • The fear is at an all time low.

    Can we go back to life now please?

  • “Well you know”….. It Seems like we have hit the “sporadic” level and we can now go to level 1!!! But wait that would take admitting that HSU or the other school openings or the weddings or the protesters or the lack of people wearing masks or the restaurants or church services or Labor Day were not “super spreader” events like Dr “um well you know” Frankovitch has prognosticated about for the better part of a year . The sky isn’t falling. If we all take personal responsibility for ourselves and are conscious of how we interact with others isn’t it just about time to move on from the day to day over the top fear mongering? Obviously the virus is here and may have serious implications for those at risk. Those people are the ones who need to be taking extra precautions. The shutdowns were supposed to buy us time to get our health care system ready for potential surges. If it ain’t ready now a year into this thing we’ll then it ain’t ever gonna be.

    • I wld say that the mask wearing and hand washing is working well. It’s not a lot to ask, wear a mask when you’re out. And to the essential workers who wear masks for hours at a time, we respect & thank you beyond measure. I know it can’t be easy, day after day. So, to all of you who only need to wear one when you are out& about, thank you also… You are helping more than yourself, and it’s appreciated.

    • Fool me twice?

    • You don’t sound confused to me, Unlike for sure. Thank you!!! . The sky isn’t falling now, nor was it falling previously. I could write more and I have, however you can’t educate the uneducationable!
