Breaking Quarantine

After 14 days of quarantine, it’s time to get some!

Jocelyn and I have been extremely careful during the COVID-19 crisis. We have three young kids and do NOT want to get sick!

Below are charts to help me ‘see’ what is happening. These are charts I cannot find anywhere else and compliment the other sources provided at the bottom of the post. The data is from credible sources, cited below.
