New Covid-19 Cases Fluctuate – But General Trend is UP! – Numbers to the left through 10-25-2020
Pinellas county once again extends the emergency order requiring masks and social distancing until October 30th. The complete order is here.
Sadly, many local businesses continue to ignore the order. Restaurants are operating without mask requirements for servers and other employees. Just take a walk on the beach and you will see the violators.
The Good News – ONLY 20 DEATHS IN PINELLAS COUNTY IN LAST 10 DAYS – ONE IS TOO MANY!
Deaths continue to fall as you can see on the chart to the left. Lets hope there is no correlation to the rise in deaths to the rise in new case in the coming days. This is great news as treatments get better and the younger age group becoming infected have a small mortality rate. Still one death is too many!
RESTAURANT NOTES: Both Maggie Mae’s and Backwaters continue to keep you safe. We monitor each employee daily with temperature checks and other symptom questions. Everything is cleaned constantly and table spacing is required.
