Sorry to hear about your loss, B C. Two of my family members died of this in Mexico (their daughter also caught it, no updates on that).  A long time friend of mine died of this earlier this year, my grade school gym teacher got pretty sick, but thankfully recovered. 
 

It does look like the mask mandate is working, sucks that we have to wear one, but it is what it is. 

What data is showing that the mask mandate is working?

masks work, so if people are wearing them the virus will spread less. asking if the mandate is working is a different question, because if no one follows it, it means nothing. from what i've seen, people havent changed their habits.

Not a terribly impressive graph because it's presented on a linear scale. A virus spreading in a vulnerable population spreads exponentially, not linearly. Yes, they work. The problem is that "individual choice" means nothing in a pandemic, because it's the sum of the action that is taken by all people, in aggregate, that makes the difference. At my my employer, mask wearing went from 5% to 95% overnight, because of a county mandate. What one person chooses to do individually makes little difference. Similar to voting, but I digress...

UW Madison is going CRAZY right now.

UW Stout just started last week. I have 3 labs per week in class. (2 classes) I officially give it 2 weeks from today they will probably shut down. 

Sounds about right. File under "an attempt was made".

This is how I feel about most things

Today I took a picture of my VIN with the intentions of looking up part numbers and ordering some parts I need (CSB, giubo, front brakes). Didn't get that far, but I did at least get out for a short bike ride and made dinner... Basically working 1.75 jobs now that I've "moved to engineering", but still have to train literally 5 people to do different parts of the work that I was doing and also finish the work that needs to be done after the trainees go home "because it's 4:30".

Definitely dropping out of society and become a bum/traveling for 6 to 12 months when my lease is up at the end of next summer.
