This is my biggest concern moving into this next phase. All of the sacrifice is minimized if the effort is executed piecemeal.

Here in my home state, the largest per-capita outbreaks are in the counties where just a couple of miles aways is a state border that didn't have as strict protocols. Makes it difficult to enforce mitigation when just a couple of miles down the road you can have a sit down dinner, get your hair cut and then order a cocktail at the bar.

Edit: This is why my wife is better at scheduling than me. It would be better to get the haircut, then the dinner and finally the drink at the bar.

No kidding...not only that, a world that I don't know when will come here...i'm guessing sometime in July. That is if there are any places left. We are no getting announcements of places that will not be opening.

I figure maybe towards the end of the month I can go to Oregon for a hair cut or something depending on Oregon restrictions. I know Idaho won't allow it.

ETA: That might be all we see around here...haircuts and maybe a pizza parlor. Oregon also says no sporting events until the end of September. https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/20...rown-says.html Puts a real damper on NCAA football in the Pac-13.

Yea we’re in Washington as well and it sounds like we may be getting some partial openings in June. At least the state parks are open again. Up where we’re at there seems to be a lot of tourism traffic starting to pop up. Nothings open other than take out, but with all the Airbnb’s I think folks are just looking to get out of Seattle.

Well....Looked like the timing of the trip with the lifting of stay-at-home orders worked well to your favor.
