Members 83. Yikes. Spikes.

Oh crap. Covid 19 numbers have taken off here. I wrote last week about concerns over there being six cases reported in a day. In the last seven days, we have had ninety five. While these numbers constitute a sharp uptick, the absolute numbers are such that it probably represents
