Coronavirus Update #24

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 - On-Hold
The whole re-opening process is 'On Hold'. .After 8 weeks in Phase 3 we have no indication that we'll get to Phase 4 (the 'new' normal) any time soon. With the size of gatherings reduced to 50 (outdoors) and 25 (indoors) we are adjusting how we get out and about.

The State now has a Travel Order website to support the new (8/1) travel restrictions. It also keeps track of the 'Good' vs 'Bad' states. New 'Good' states are Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Colorado. Hawaii and Rhode Island have been moved back into the 'Bad' bucket. The Travel Order website is HERE.

The school year is going to start soon, but with completely new procedures. It appears that the youngest kids (K-5) will meet in the schools, but with 'social distancing' and masks. The high school will be entirely remote learning (Zoom, etc) The middle school kids will do some hybrid version of in-school and remote learning. How appropriate. More information, which seems to change frequently, can be found at the Nauset School District website. Very confusing.

Eastham had no new cases of COVID-19 this week, keeping our total at 14. The Barnstable County total number is 1624 (up 45 from last week). Cape Cod Hospital currently has three COVID patients.
.
Below is Gov Baker's chart, redrawn (again) 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. The chart below is my tracking of our progress. Check out the full list at 'Reopening Massachusetts'.
