Fair points.

I have provided my daughters house with masks (they all have their own, but just in case) and a forehead thermometer so they can quick themselves frequently.

Awareness is the objective.

I know it isn't Brazos county, but someone is messing up the numbers for Burleson county. Saturday showed 43 active and 240 total cases. Then yesterday 183 active with the same 240 total cases.

Went by Tanglewood Park yesterday. There was a birthday party with around 100 people and the biggest waterslide I have ever seen. No social distancing, masks etc. Give the numbers a few days.

I have it and no one in my house has caught it. We haven't distanced or worn mask at home. Same with a friend, one out of five. Also, neither one of us has "classic Covid symptoms " except loss of taste and smell. If masks work, how did I get it? If masks work, why not open up everything? If masks don't work, then why are we wearing them?

This is a "move the goalposts" method of debating the "wearing of masks" topic.

No one ever said they were 100% effective. That has never been where the goalpost was. Yet you moved them and hoped no one would notice.

The reason for wearing the masks is to slow the spread so we do not have our healthcare system overwhelmed. It is not 100% effective and the medical community that is reccomending the wearing of them understands they are not 100% effective.

If you want to have a debate, then do it honestly.

But your argument as it stands is analogous to "I was in a car wreck with a friend in my car. We both were not wearing seat belts. He died and I didn't so if seat belts work why did he die and I didn't"

I didn't move anything or make any unfounded arguments. My points, masks do not prevent a Covid and the studies that they do is weak. However, if they do work, then open up the economy. My second argument is infection rates is not as high as people think. Approximately 22% of sailors caught Covid on the Roosevelt (a closed environment sampling). My house is a 25% infection rate and I have another friend whose house is a 20% infection rate. Real numbers. Third, I didn't comment on seatbelt use. As far as my honesty, please feel free to private message me and we can further discuss your insults. Everything is my post, was honest and No where in my post did I make any accusations about anyone's honesty. Questioning my honesty from behind an unknown internet handle is unnecessary.

It's supposed to be under 20 cases, right? I don't know if that's active cases or new daily cases. I assume active.

I think we still have a few weeks to go to see how the area is affected by the students. In all fairness, I feel that makes sense.

20 or less total active cases.

And then a few weeks to see how football games affect (assuming that happens), then a few weeks to see how holidays affect, them a few more weeks...

A few more weeks never ends!! Let's move on with life, with some common sense! What are down to now, .12% of the population??

It all ends on November 4th, or January 21st, 2025 depends on who wins the election.

Exactly. When that 20 active case bar was enacted in early July is when I started paying attention to and then posting not only active cases, but also active case percent of the population. I think percent of population is a far better measure than absolute number of cases. In the KBTX reporting area, here are those active cases as a % of population measures:

Burleson 0.08%
Milam 0.08%
San Jacinto 0.09%
Brazos 0.13%
Leon 0.14%
Houston 0.17%
Waller 0.19%
Lee 0.20%
Trinity 0.24%
Washington 0.25%
Montgomery 0.29%
Austin 0.31%
Grimes 0.50%
Robertson 0.60%
Walker 1.02%
Madison 3.09%

Brazos county is much lower than many lower populated counties but will never meet the 20 or fewer active cases mark likely for the next couple of decades b/c covid, just like the flu, is here to stay.

According to The Eagle an inmate at the Brazos County Detention Center died, but the death was not included in Tuesday's report.

Died today so that would be in tomorrow's report.

And that will be #50 so we'll likely get a dose of fear porn from the local media.

I bet there will be some sort of segment like "Aggieland at 50 - The Lessons of COVID-19"

Anyhoo, back to the numbers

Perhaps they could do a segment on 50 small business owners who are now bankrupt and closed?

so a thread on premium was asking about the Athletic Departments protocol on testing.

the thread indicated that the AD was testing football players 3X a week. Nobody had confirmed that.

Anyone have any idea if our AD is doing ANY testing. And if they are, does that count in these Brazos County numbers????? Or will they in the future.

Just curious, seems to me that would skew the numbers. But then again, with lack of details the numbers are fluid at best.

According to the TDHHS dashboard, the current positivity rate is 11.1%, slightly less than in Brazos county.

I was actually going to ask 24 what? 24 by itself is not a rate.

The 11.79% positivity rate on the Brazos County Health District daily report is from all cases/tests since this began. Isn't the last 7 or 14 days positivity rate a better indicator of where are at currently?? According to lockett93's spreadsheet, we are at 4.20% positivity for the last 7 days. I calculate a 4.28% positivity rate for the last 14 days.
