    Honestly, it's not much different in KY. We simply don't have the thru-traffic that Florida has. I think give it another 2 or 3 weeks and it will peak in Florida and then fall off like a cliff. I don't think the northerners are taking it 200 times more serious. They've just had their peak and the host candidate pool is very shallow now.

    I hope so. I think tourism helped contribute to the growth in South Florida too. But as people don’t come, maybe things will get better. Unfortunately, I suspect that people who have gotten the disease were people who work tourist related facilities. But, I am really guessing. For me, I wear a mask outside. I go to the office some, and I order my groceries from amazon or Instacart. Ordering allows for social distancing and for the delivery person to work and also make a tip. I am optimistic about a vaccine at a record pace.

    Why do you say this? Our new case count average is down nearly 25% since our highest peak 2.5 weeks ago and our hospitalizations may have peaked or are otherwise close to a down turn (very optimistic at our two hospitals locally, GNV).

    Exactly. That's why I've been railing against the leadership this whole time. There has been no rhyme or reason to the response to this.

    Because you can't host a 100 person covid spreading party in a hotel room like you can in a BNB. And house rentals were only restricted if you were doing 1 or 2 night rentals. Not that hard to figure out

    Actually, house rentals were prohibited if the stay was less than 30 days. And I think most beach vacation homes are rented by the week.

    I've been to some killer hotel parties in my life. Not 100 people, but 20-30 for sure. Some as an underage kid and some as an adult. Again this all goes back to arbitrary rules and lack of enforcement and personal responsibility in following protocols. A hotel rental is not inherently safer than an Air Bnb, just like a restaurant is not inherently safer than a brewery.

    There will be some over-celebrating by optimists that are not aware of the testing decreasing.
    There will also be some over-doom-and-glooming by the pessimists when the increase in testing on the flip side catches up and produces (potentially) a relative spike in cases.

    Today's report:

    +4716 new cases***
    +216 new hospitalizations (52 fewer than last Monday's report, 76 fewer than the Monday prior, 11 fewer than the Monday prior to that)
    +73 new deaths

    Hopkins method of new tests: 31,801 new tests (this is total positive tests + negative tests between daily reports), positivity % = 14.8% (lowest number since June)
    Page 2 FDOH state report: 60,994 new tests, positivity % = 9.09%
    (both percentages are significantly down)

    ***7-Day average of new tests via Hopkins method (for previous 7 days): 47,785
    ***Expected number of new cases were sufficient tests available based on 7-day average: 7,086 (1768 fewer than the previous week)...7,239 using page 2 testing numbers

    The 7 day average for positivity is down for almost three straight weeks.

    New COVID-19 cases in Florida falls below 5,000
    Hospitalizations, fatalities and positivity rates also decreasing for the second straight day

    The Florida Department of Health reported 4,752 new cases to the Florida COVID-19 Dashboard, bringing the total positive test count to 491,884 cases as of the August 2nd report. This is the ninth straight day Florida has reported under 10,000 new cases, and the first day since June 22nd it has fallen under 5,000.


    Can we look for the positives or always straight to the negative?

    Those are yesterday's numbers.

    Today's numbers:

    New cases: +5446 (+5389 residents), 17.2% positivity Hopkins method (7-day average below 18% for the first time in a few weeks, 10.88% page 2)
    New hospitalizations: +586 (new high, but last week it was +585, still a good 10% lower than our 7-day average peak last week).
    New deaths: +245

    7-day average for testing before they started shutting down for the storm was ~49,000
    Yesterday's testing showed 31,660.

    If we applied the ratio (49000/31660) to the new cases we'd be looking at ~8430 new cases which would still be having us trend in the right direction.
