    This worries me some. The numbers are increasing in Ar. The testing is increasing. So that is a factor in this. I am understanding that people need to make a living. I read that the peak is not until June. I am hoping that people still do prevention measures.

    I agree. I am in NWA and I don't feel like we are ready. I watch the numbers every day and think "we are sooo not ready for this". I told my family that we will be staying in until at least two weeks after we start phase one but now I am thinking it will be longer. I am currently doing part time work as I have 3 school aged kids that have been doing school from home for the last 7 weeks. But, I have to go back to work full time after Memorial Day and I am so worried. My company has had 4 people test positive already.
