Similar. A friend who's on senior staff at a N. Shore hospital said they filled up over the weekend in a big burst.

A spike in the local curve, so to speak.

Stay safe, everyone.

These cases were from two weeks ago or so when people weren't exactly prudent in their decisions to mingle...but whatever...

Speak for yourself. Two weeks ago the alarm sounded for self-distancing in Mass. was in full-force by Walsh, Baker and local hospitals, doctors, ER nurses. You just chose to ignore, deny and/or think it was a Democratic Hoax. Do better because it could be a matter of life of death for you, your family, your neighbors, your friends, that guy making minimim wage at the grocery store, the nurse at the hospital that doesn't have proper PPE to treat you if god forbid you get the virus due to your apathy.

But plenty of people were still going out that week (2 weeks ago was 3/18). Non-essential businesses were still open.

The alert said more details were to come this afternoon. As of 9:33pm when I'm writing this, there is nothing. WTF?

i've been visiting the grocery in waltham and from what i've observed around the streets, most people are keeping their distance. Some in the market (and my fedex driver) ignore this, but overall this area is complying (mostly). The exception is the surrounding parks and carloads of teens driving around.

I live in Waltham, I can honestly say we haven't done a great job at it. There is a lot of people just playing basketball or skating at the parks, a lot of people in the grocery stores, A LOT of people casually walking by each other on the riverwalk, seen people gathering at the waltham common. I don't get it, just stay home ya know.
