So, its not a fluke and is an established and growing trend. Hopefully it doesn't explode in the next couple of weeks. Would hate to see LC go back to Phase I. Was in Yakima 2 weeks ago and it's tough over there.

And yet, mask wearing in Centralia continues to be low. Was about 60% at Safeway yesterday.
