Over 25% of my county’s infections have occurred in a single nursing home.  When I look at Ohio’s dashboard our deaths statewide from COVID-19 are predominantly focused in residents 60-80+ years of age.  Ohio gives breakdowns on numbers and most of the time I’m finding those breakdowns to be increasingly disturbing.

I wish it were simple to know what the main cause of infections in my county have been.

My county alone has had almost 800 cases, with our single largest reported number of cases yesterday (42 in one day). That doesn't even count the effect of Texas's reopening, which formally began about a week ago and cranked up on Friday.
