Coronavirus Update #18

I plan to publish an update video each week until we get the 'all clear'. Hopefully this won't be too much longer.
Mass Reopening Plan - Phase 3, Week 2
Again, not much to report for the week. Not unexpectedly, mid-summer brings lots of vacationers to the Cape (see article below). Except that they are staying more to themselves and not standing in long lines at restaurants. And, the beaches seem full, but not crowded. Although there are exceptions, most rental properties have their fill of renters.

Nicely, Eastham hasn't had a new cases of COVID-19 for many weeks. All of Cape Cod has only had 1622 cases, up 44 from last week. Cape Cod Hospital has only 1 COVID patient.
The Eastham Chamber of Commerce published an email blast on Phase 3 - Here is the link that provides the details for Phase 3.
Below is Gov Baker's chart, redrawn so we can track our progress. I'll try to maintain this chart so that the key dates remain front and center. The Governor has said that Phase 3 will be 'substantially' longer than the prior phases. Ugh. I'm hoping that we get to Phase 4 before Labor Day. Also, I've been wondering what the 'New Normal' is going to look like. The chart below is my tracking of our progress . Check out the full list at 'Reopening Massachusetts'.

Vacation Rentals - UP!
This weekend the Boston Globe ran an article highlighting the fact that, in spite of massive early cancellations, the net number of vacation rentals is up from 2019 on the Cape. Some outlets mention numbers like 24%. I did some asking around and was told that many folks asked for multiple weeks. Wow!
