My community seemed to take COVID more seriously for a couple weeks after we peaked at 24th worst county in the USA. Over 10% of the community tested positive in a few weeks' time. If it's true that actual case numbers are 8x positive tests, maybe we have some herd immunity going too?
New cases have been down in my county and state, even after Thanksgiving. If this trend holds through January, I may feel comfortable adding some outings back in.
What do you think @Hardknockshomestead ?
Tortoise, I'm sorry I missed your post!
Yes, i believe we most likely have quite a bit of "herd immunity" here. The rates of reported new infections and new deaths have slowed here, it seems. I'm talking daily new cases and deaths as a percent of the total. I'm not a math whiz and I'm having a hard time expressing what I'm trying to say lol.
It seems to me a big percent of people have had the virus in my part of the county. I hear people talking at work and I don't believe only 15 percent have been infected.
People are weary of it all.
Folks are shopping, kids are in school, and everyone knows several entire families or businesses that have been infected. It reminds me of pre-covid flu season. Herd immunity surely is not far away.
