I hear a lot of people asking for data when it comes to how many people are getting COVID-19. This is my response look at your community when you are asking for data. Data can be swayed, but outbreaks in your community will be noticeable, believe me! Take our situation for example. We had two eateries come down with COVID-19 in a two week span. One was a Pizza Hut which was reported here https://www.kxxv.com/hometown/bell-county/bell-county-issues-public-advisory-after-pizza-hut-employee-tests-positive-for-covid-19 and if you read the article you will see the days May 4th-May 7th.
On May 3rd there was a report by a local news outlet that Taco Bell closed down temporally because of a case of COVID-19. This restaurant more than likely had it prior to Pizza Hut. The article can be found here. https://www.kxxv.com/hometown/bell-county/taco-bell-employee-in-temple-tests-positive-for-covid-19 We are talking about less that 7 miles apart. We ordered Taco Bell from Ubereats a few weeks ago, so we were a little alarmed and still somewhat afraid.
Keep in mind, this is a small area, so if our Ubereats person happened to come into contact with this worker and caught it, there goes the spread. We keep hearing the officials talk about the reason we are seeing more people come down with the virus deals with more testing, but do not forget that those are testing positive because the virus is spreading.
We are talking about two restaurants within 7 miles from each other which could possibly cause community spreads. We get caught up in numbers, but when you get food from these locations, stats are the last thing on your mind. You start trying to think back to when was the last time you received food from these areas and if you might have been exposed to anything. Be careful and think for yourself.
