A friend went kayaking & took this pic. Said the Barton Creek inlet was too packed to paddle in there.

I had been down around that area a few times. The activity there and also Zilker Park never really died off.

That is NOTHING! The week before Memorial Day Weekend was the heaviest traffic on Lake Ladybird that I have ever seen, and I am down there multiple times a week, 52 weeks a year. Fresh air and wind constantly diluting any virus and the sunlight degrading it, it is pretty safe and there is some degree of built in distancing in kayaks, (SUPs, not so much). Now, that more things are opening up, the number of people on the river isn't as intense.

And there was a huge spike yesterday. And hospitalizations, not just cases (which some can write off as testing, but not so much the hospitalizations) are up state-wide.



Interestingly enough, COVID-19 had no problems in Australia in the summer. Gives one pause.
