Problem is you end up with things like this...
A wedding in rural Maine became a coronavirus "superspreader" event that left seven people dead and 177 infected. Now, for the community and wider region, which had relaxed social-distancing rules introduced earlier in the crisis, the news was a brutal wake-up call.
None of the dead people attended the wedding. Most of the infected didn't either.
That's going to happen no matter what you do. You can't hide from this storm. It's just another of a long list of potentially fatal diseases that will prey upon the infirm, old, and obese.
I saw a lot of comments above about lack of leadership...
Anybody remember “Anybody that wants a test [for the coronavirus] can get a test” from back in the good old days of March? Or how the virus will magically go away this summer? Fifteen cases going to one? Encouraging people to not wear masks? Holding super-spreader rallies?

Doing nothing be better leadership.
Don’t believe everything you think.

Somehow the virus also found its way to an elderly couple who had been hunkered down at their secluded Cedar Lake cabin for months.
Must be that wedding anyway.
