Allegheny County here in westerrn Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh area) just locked down alcohol sales in bars & restaurants for a week. And of course, various citizens ventured out of Allegheny to go to bars in other counties.
So now they're not only exporting potential Covid-19 to other locations but they're also possibly importing the virus back to their families and friends.

This border issue points up a challenge for states, Kolak says. "There's definite concern there, because unless you have a federally coordinated response, anything that one of those states does may not necessarily have a full impact unless the nearby states also agree."

Yeah, you're boned.

You mean it shows Republicans haven't been taking it seriously? Cuz we knew that. Didn't need data. They were the ones arguing masks were some how anti-constitutional.

My county's drive through testing center has been very busy for the last couple weeks.
Since a week or so after Memorial day and everyone had big crowded parties with no masks.
Prior to that we had just a few cases and it hung at one number for most of the lockdown.
It's jumped 7 times as many cases in just a few days.
Had a couple protests in front of city hall, but most folks wore masks and spread out.

Ohio counties are almost all yellow and a handful of orange with one exception: Columbiana County.   Just south of Youngstown, Columbiana is well-known as redneck heaven. Jim Jordan and Rob Portman country.     When school taxes come on the ballot, they fail by an 80-20 margin every time.  Of course, they can't tax meth profits.    The primary source of income is speed traps.

Wtf is this shiat? Who the fark cares what NPR thinks? What matters is Republicans have spent the last couple months arguing its no big deal, we don't need masks. It ifs no big deal and we dont need masks, why are people protesting suddenly a thing?

Oh, right, Republicans don't like it when black people declare themselves equal, so suddenly what what wasnt a big deal is now HUGELY important.

Oh, I think we all knew it was going to be a shiatshow of incompetence. What's somewhat surprising is how everything is pretty much the worst possible thing for America. Almost as if Trump were an enemy agent hell bent on destroying America.

Well, the virus has certainly exposed the limitations of federalism. The scariest part of the story is the bit about flare ups along state borders. If you don't have a coordinated response, it is impossible to imagine a scenario where you can ever get out of this. It's like a game of "whack a mole"  except where you aren't allowed to hit some of the moles because freedumb.

America, it seems, has effectively given up and the the virus win.

Here in FL they closed the bars again statewide but the beaches are up to the counties.  Dade and Broward closed theirs first.  Palm Beach closed fearing that everyone would come north and crowd theirs.  This led to the next county closing and then my county closing because nobody wanted the influx from the south counties.  The county north of us is still open though, God help their souls.  As with a lot of this our clusters are in the metro areas but that is branching out quickly.

Also, if some people can't see the difference between marching for their (or for those less fortunates') rights (while wearing masks to minimize the risk as far as possible) and yet another masturbatory rally for the child-in-chief, well them we might just know who they're voting for.

Methinks you don't understand the meaning of the word. Most European states do not operate a federal model, and were therefore able to coordinate a much more holistic and unified response across vast regions.

In USA, the rules can differ at National, state, county, and municipal level, without overarching central control. The federal government couldn't issue a shutdown order even if it wanted to. So, your success against the virus  was always going to be limited to the lowest common denominator. And, like usual, it's Florida.

You give them too much credit. People marched to assert black people are equal citizens under the law, something any sane person should agree with.

Republicans can't stand that. Black people are evil, and they tend to vote Democrat, and they cant process why calling a race evil means "those people" won't vote for them. So rather than try to appeal to that group, they'll suppress their vote and call Democrats the real racists. And then be confused as f*ck why that didn't work.

Ever since Memorial Day MS hasn't fared well. We've had our ups and downs, but it always averaged between 250-350. Two weeks after we've doubled and tripled that. And it hasn't stopped. 650 seems to be a good day now. We seem to be blowing through that now.

I still maintain I caught it in early March, and it's only been bolstered by time. A couple weeks ago me and my SO came down with an unexplained bout of lethargy at the same time. As time went on I just had a few throat irritations, not enough t say I had anything. She was down with it and a headache for a week and a half straight. No fevers between us, although I did feel hot for a couple days with a temp of 97.1.

Nothing conclusive but I'm all but certain she got a taste. Flu doesn't even do anything to her. She's "never had it in her life."

She's practically a shut-in anyway, so it's not like we are out cruising bars anymore.

You are correct, and it's a really good system for allowing local regions to effectively manage how they govern balanced with their values. It's a really bad system when their values go against good governance of the whole, where local decisions have a severe detrimental effect to the greater good. During a pandemic we need all regions acting in unison, or maybe a better way to state that is a plan of action to be followed.

You could read the article and learn that the WHO considers social injustice a public health crisis significant enough that protesting it may be an acceptable risk.  Or you could remain ignorant and post stupid comparisons.

No offence but sounds like wishful thinking and a dash of hubris if you ask me. If you had it, you would know of other people who had it in your orbit. One in five end up in the hospital. Unless you can point to sick friends and family, you likely just had a cold and you should continue to live as if you are entirely vulnerable to infection.

The counterpoint, of course, is Germany, which has a federal system but managed to keep the virus largely under control. That I still struggle to explain, except to say that the system is only as strong as it's weakest link, and Germany doesn't have any particularly weak links. There was some regional variation, but generally speaking the whole country went along with federal recommendations.

I wonder if Ohio well reinstitute the ban on out of state sales on the border counties like we did the last time your stupid government did that crap. I understand closing bars, but stopping all sales is just idiotic (not go mention dangerous for alcoholics, plus increasing the likelihood of drunk driving).

I'm sorry you'll have to explain your post to me because it appears from my point of view that you are laboring under the impression that political protest against government is of equal importance as said government holding pep rallies to spread propaganda. Is that what you believe? I am confused because really anyone who would actually believe such a thing would be highly unlikely to possess the necessary capacity to operate a computer much less use it to access the internet.
