I wonder where these people worked (I know at least 2 employers already). I guess we will never know.

Preventively speaking, isolation is the key. From a containment standpoint, contact tracing is the most successful way to curb the spread, including staying on top of it right here in our county. An interesting article from The NY Times detailing South Korea’s aggressive approach to slowing/gaining some type of control of the virus: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/23/world/asia/coronavirus-south-korea-flatten-curve.html algo=als1&fellback=false&imp_id=720309722&action=click&module=moreIn&pgtype=Article&region=Footer

Fellow Beaver Countians, please do what you can to slow/halt this monster. Regardless of what’s been stated, it varies, case to case on just how much it kicks any ones particular ass.
Stay in, apart and safe.

I believe younger people are carrying the virus with little or no symptoms and giving it to older folks. Younger nurses, aides, workers ect… This is happening everywhere. It’s not hard to see.
