Your Level of Concern About the Coronavirus......on a scale of 1-10

ND today lowered the covid risk level for the entire state to green(low) as they now have the lowest positivity rate in the nation, with active cases down 90% from the Nov high.

They never shut down any business's, they dropped modest hours of operation limitations a couple weeks back, they have no mask mandate anymore. They also lead the nation in vaccine distribution. Tremendous job governor.

A textbook example of the benefits of not panicking, not over managing, and most importantly not falling victim to hysteria.

No, they had their surge, and it was quite big, the point is they made it through with very little damage to their economy, unemployment is low, very few business's were forced to close. Look at other states that are reeling as a result of their bad decisions, decisions they stick with to this day - look at schools, in ND most of them have been open the whole time while in places like NY, chicago, VA they are still paralyzed in fear, afraid to reopen, afraid to do anything.

ND close to herd immunity.
Is North Dakota nearing herd immunity?

About 13 percent of North Dakotans have tested positive for COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
But a study by Columbia University suggests a much higher percentage of the state may have already had the virus. So how close is North Dakota to herd immunity?
Researchers at Columbia University say a computer model estimates 105 million people in America have already had COVID-19. That includes 60 percent of North Dakotans.
It’s only an estimate, but North Dakota’s Director of Field Services says many people in our state have chosen not to get tested for a lot of reasons.
“‘My wife is already positive, I already feel crummy, there’s no need for me to get tested, I’m just going to get quarantine.’ People who just don’t want to get tested, you know, people who have symptoms, people who don’t believe in COVID, whatever reason they just don’t want to get tested,” explained Brenton Nesemeier, the Director of Field Services for the North Dakota Department of Health.
Dr. Noe Mateo with Sanford Health says there are two ways to approach herd immunity.
One option is to vaccinate everybody, and the other is natural infection, which Mateo warns comes with risks.
“You’re not going to have young, healthy individuals die. They’ll just get sick. Acutely ill. Maybe chronically ill. A few minorities will have long-term illnesses and long-term sequelae. But certainly, you’re going cause significant mortality. More harm, morbidity and deaths in the elderly population,” explained Dr. Mateo.
And even as vaccines are rolled out the coronavirus situation continues to change, especially with the new strains on the horizon.
“We do have these various strains and the other strain. So there’s things that we don’t know,” explained Nesemeier.
“A lot of discussions, whether prior infection is actually protective against the mutant strains, that’s not clear,” explained Dr. Mateo.
It’s for these reasons it is uncertain if the Peace Garden State is near herd immunity. That’s why doctors say you should continue to follow safety protocols.
“People can take a deep breath behind their mask, of course. The deal is, is all of these developments enough to say we should no longer wear masks? The answer is categorically no. Does it mean we have to relax what we do in terms of business and school restrictions? The answer is no,” explained Dr. Mateo.
Both of the health experts say with vaccine rollout, it’s the best option to working toward herd immunity.
 
It’s great if you like wearing masks. Personally I don’t. Our bars open tomorrow at 25%. Half of my bar accounts are not opening.
Here it's 50%, which isn't really a factor because that's of fire code capacity - not normal seating capacity, however ours have to close at 10 pm - which hurts the weekend business bigtime. No one wears a mask inside a bar/rest except the workers, you're supposed to wear them to move around and perhaps half do.

Obviously none of these measures are necessary considering cases and hospitalizations are down 75%+, not to mention that our case situation is virtually the same as every neighboring state that had very few or no measures in place.

Most can pay the bills at 50% in the winter and scratch out a little profit, especially Legions, Moose, Eagles etc. unfortunately drinking bars are going away.

You may be right but that's a choice, living normally is a choice, opening bars is a choice. perhaps 1/2 the country is close to normal with regard to rest/bars, their governors had the courage to stay the course.

As we've now seen after almost a yr there is no legitimate reason to close any business, those who chose to stay open fared no worse than those who shut down. it's a damn shame IMO.

The sheer stupidity of a large segment of the population, no mitigation plan was going to work. No country with running water and paved roads fukked up Covid even close to the way you did.

You'll never recover.
 
Iowa's mask mandate will end on Sunday, Reynolds office says

A new Public Health Disaster proclamation "relaxes existing public health measures effective Sunday," says a release from Gov. Kim Reynolds' office.
 
The voters approved the legalization of marijuana in South Dakota. The dumb bimbo governor Noem just got a judge to overturn the will of the people and turn away all of that extra revenue.
