I am still amazed at the stupidity of people. I had to go out yesterday for probably the first time in a month (usually DH does the shopping and I feel only 1 person is needed) armed with mask, Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer. Anyway, I saw a family of 2 parents and 3 kids probably around 5-8 yrs. The parents were all masked up, but the kids had nothing and were running all around! Who knows how close to people they were getting and yelling (spitting) and putting hands on their own faces. It might have been a little less "head shaking" if none of them had masks, but the parents did. Also would have been nice to keep them away from others as well. I kept as far away from them as I could.

Someone mentioned about the younger people being the ones not being careful. I think it is some level of feeling invincible. I see it in many of their actions.

Of course I did have a bit of a laugh yesterday. Everyone is touting the "touchless" payment, which is great. Well, if you have been around DE much you know that a great many of the places don't have units that accept that type of payment. Our CCs are capable, but the payment units aren't. Anyway I have a Samsung smartphone and use Samsung Pay when I can. Unlike Apple Pay, the Samsung Pay can actually send a signal to the card reader of a unit. Yesterday, as has happened several times, I held up my phone to the unit and before she could get out "We can't accept that type of payment", it beeped with the charge paid. If she hadn't had a mask I'm sure I could have seen her jaw drop....."But, but I don't know how that worked". I just smiled....well in my mask....and say "It's because it is Samsung Pay and not Apple Pay". I love seeing the awed looks on the faces of those young iPhone lovers!!! They are amazed that some little old lady can do something with the phone that they can't.

Today's numbers Over/Under yesterday


NCC 1734 + 17
KENT 743 + 16
SUSSEX 2114 +102

This is great news for the upper two counties but not good news for Sussex. Trying to be optimistic, the good news is only the other day our number in Sussex increased by 200 and today we are well under that for the ENTIRE state. Pray it continues to fall off.

NCC 1734 + 95

Now some of this is attributable to the testing being done.

The governor explained yesterday that the number of cases increasing is not solely a valuable indicator because of the increased testing being done, it is generally more expected that the more testing you do the more positive results you will find. It is the combination of hospitalizations and increased numbers in relation to the testing that will determine when we can start the countdown to reopen our state.

Sussex 2114 + 347

Hospitalizations 284
I am adding the hospitalizations number to this now. The uptick in Sussex is not unexpected the Governor said they were anticipating spikes as the testing continued. That is why the Hospitalization number is so important. We have to see that number declining.

It was just a matter of time. Delaware, Southern New Jersey, and West Virginia are finally ramping up. There may only be one known case out in the middle of nowhere, but it got there.

Ok so I have totally lost my mind. I know that I have updated these numbers and the next day they are the old numbers. I had taken to a copy and paste method and apparently it reverts back to the old number, so I will be typing them in now.
