Very very concerning, especially the part where the article states the dramatic rise is from family gatherings, etc. A widowed friend of ours hosted an annual Halloween party which included a haunted house, a hay wagon ride through his 40 acres with scary scenes in the woods and ending with a bonfire, guitar playing and singing. Maybe 30 people or so would attend. Well, he's older now so his daughter took over and she had the party at her house, the haunted house in her garage and food set out inside. My dh has rheumatoid arthritis and is on 5 different meds that lower his immunity. The daughter invited us but we declined due to DH health status. The party was Saturday. We happened to run into our friend and his girlfriend at the store just yesterday. His girlfriend said there were "over 100 kids" at the party. She was afraid for her own health as she's in her 60s and has had a stroke. So she helped put out food and disappeared. People were angry that she didn't go into the haunted house, which had a long line. What the hell is wrong with people? I understand cabin fever but to invite >100 kids to a party? So really no surprise that Covid rates are rising.
