Putnam county is not in a crisis mode. Life here is pretty much back to normal other than a few people wearing masks. The mortality rate so far is below the typical seasonal flu and dropping as more people test positive and most most never experiencing symptoms.
Just out of curiosity, why is it considered political to want people to social distance and wear masks so that Putnam County does not wind up with the virus problems that so many other areas are having to deal with?

Not that there's no reason to worry, but to be fair, of the 7 deaths in Putnam County, 5 were in one nursing home which was hit early but is now completely covid-free. And the two others who died at the hospital were both elderly with other severe health issues. Still, now is not the time to be cavalier about this. With more and more businesses requiring masks, hopefully things will start to improve soon.

7 deaths per 100,000 = .0069% Mortality Rate



According to the Tennessee Department of Health:


In Putnam county there has been 7 COVID related deaths total with 1,145 cases (confirmed and probable). This gives us a mortality rate of .61%


In Williamson county to date there has been 18 COVID related deaths total with 2,309 cases (confirmed and probable). This gives us a mortality rate of .78%


As more testing is completed the trend has been an increase in confirmed and probable COVID cases and a decrease in mortality rate.

In general it's not political to want people to social distance and wear masks so that Putnam County does not wind up with the virus problems that so many other areas are having to deal with?


It becomes political when a national political party uses a crisis such as a pandemic for political gain.

The Putnam County Health Department has tested 16,403 people so far which is about 20 percent of Putnam County's population. Obviously, the more people tested, the more positive cases there will be. I wonder what percentage of Williamson County and Orange County have been tested.

The chart, which is included in the article I'm attaching, doesn't include % of people tested. My point is the percentages in Putnam county mirror some suburban and urban areas. What none of these numbers talk about is the people who will have life changing affects from the virus. You can't just measure death rate.
Many are luckily asymptomatic, but listen to the stories of those that aren't.

This thread provides a good data point in a relocation decision even before a physically visit. Helpful in uncovering some of the sociopolitical aspects which can be hard to discern on a short scouting mission.

To me, this shouldn't be a political thing. If we can all pull together and do the social distancing and wearing a mask in the appropriate situations, we can keep the virus manageable in Putnam County. And if we do that everyone wins, no matter what their political view. People's lives and businesses and schools and the medical facilities can continue functioning, even if they are not quite the same.

But if people are going to look at this through a political lens, we run the risk of this becoming the problem we don't want; and there are plenty of examples of that throughout the country. Isn't it worth the bit of effort to help make this situation better for everyone? After all, the main point is not where we have been in dealing with the virus but where we are going to be next week or next month or six months from now.

If I traveled from Texas on a scouting mission, and this was what I was seeing, I would get back in my car and turn around. That's just me. YMMV.
