Trip Report

In Washington they look at new cases per 100,000 for the past two weeks. Prior to moving to what they call Phase 2 our case count was 22 per 100,000. About 6 weeks ago we moved to phase 2. Our current case count per 100,000 is 142. Not quite a 7 time increase. We can’t go to New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington DC or Hawaii without a 2 week quarantine upon arrival. In addition no one from the USA is welcome in Europe right now. It is strongly suggested, but apparently not being enforced, that travel to both Canada and Mexico is for “essential purposes” only. It is felt that our surge in cases is primarily due to not following the guidelines for masks and social distancing at restaurants, bars and beaches.
