Ohio is in 3rd spot on Jonhs Hopkins Covid map and it's no wonder.

I had to go to Walmart shortly after 12 noon.
While most of the employees wore masks, I'd estimate 5% or less of the walk-ins were wearing masks.

And now there a new variant of Delta being reported in the UK.

The UK appears to be having a resurgence of Covid infections.

Delta's surprise U.K. comeback is a warning sign for the U.S.

This stood out and should be considered by those that think their natural immunity from a Covid infection is all they need to stay healthy:

On top of that, U.K. residents are “increasingly reporting catching Sars-CoV-2 for a second or even third time,” according to the Guardian. A year ago, reinfection seemed rare; only two dozen cases had been recorded worldwide. But just like protection from vaccination, natural immunity also seems to fade over time and in the face of new variants such as Delta. In Oklahoma, for instance, reinfections have risen 350 percent since May.
