There were 6 covid deaths in our county last week. Most of them middle-aged, not in their 70s or older. One person in their 30s. Cases counts are firmly in the “orange” zone (positivity rates still “red” which suggests people aren’t getting tested). Researchers are advertising a Tuskeegee style study in which they follow unvaccinated young people to see what happens to them. I guess our area is a good place for that given the still high covid rates and the legislated inability to require masks or vaccines. I don’t want to live here anymore. I bought DC2 more child-sized masks in case there’s a run on them in August when everybody realizes the vaccine isn’t out yet for kids under 12 and yet they have to go to school in person. I can only pray that my kid will keep hir mask for a month on in the face of peer pressure and the inability for schools to have a mask requirement. Even better would be for vaccines to come early. I signed DC2 up for a vaccine study in the city, but probably too late to actually be a part of it. All I can really do is hope that people who say that kids getting covid isn’t a problem are right and the fact that we don’t have long-term information or have any idea what variant will be around come August/September when school starts and the college kids come back won’t be a problem.

I read sooo many novels with that completely unnecessary and out-of-place third act conflict.
