No. My area, while not in denial, is not very observant yet. Until yesterday, I had enough fingers to account for every confirmed case in my county plus all the adjacent counties.

The governor may have shut us down, and the populace is restricting itself, but the mindset is I'm doing it because "they" are making me, not because I want to or even agree with it.
