I just spent a month in Florida, as far as public health measures being taken they are about the same in Florida as they are here with the exception of restaurants which seems to be a bit more crowded and busy, most have outdoor seating which makes it much easier to accommodate more of a crowd. Stores require masks and they are warn, social distancing happens on the beach etc.. There are entertainment areas where those that want that go that you don't see here. Not really that big of a difference.
You could argue that forced measures are not needed and that would be a valid point.
World isn't binary, never was, never will be.1) Cautious people will self-isolate no matter what public officials say. Less cautious/reckless people will continue to gather no matter what public officials say.
No significant net effect, I can buy. No chance they caused more spread. You so badly want this to be true, but of course it isn't.2) Some policies are probably counterproductive eg banning outdoor exercise, or outdoor dining, or banning attendance at outdoor sporting events. These are clear examples of over-reaction that probably resulted in more spread, not less or at least had no effect.
Or just doing something that was hoped would or seemed like it could reduce risk. Nothing wrong with that, in the slightest.when they were politically guided or cop outs to fear mongering.

Just as people who would drive 120 on I-94 if there were no speed limit will now only drive 85-90 with a speed limit at 75. Same here.

Science can't prove that you will fall off a cliff if you walk close along the edge. But people still don't like to take the risk, anyway.
The liberty to be an old piece of crap who needs to dine-in at a Chili’s in Florida? Such a vic.
The UK is approaching herd immunity b/c they relied on one dose of the two dose vaccine. They used the second dose as a first dose to get as many people
Trump was wrong.We'll need this translated through the KGF "what he really meant" BS translator.
Yeah, that was somewhat of a misrepresentation by the always reliable Aaron Rupar. Anyone who relies on Aaron Rupar to tell the truth is a hack or an idiot.We'll need this translated through the KGF "what he really meant" BS translator.
I'd prefer to err on the side of caution, except then it come to ingesting bleach.
Last time I checked, none of us inhabiting this planet are 100% correct, certainly not me. That's kinda of the point, if you think about it from a macro view.
These are not 'oops my bad' things. The amount of money, time, and consternation they've put people through long after they knew this was not an issue is not a small thing.
Relevant point - well played
I'm surprised at how lax the previous administration was on this topic, especially as they changed the guidance of the CDC on the following items -
There are of course a seemingly unending supply of them them when you google Trump interfering with CDC.
I’m really not sure of the point here? This was a year ago. Many things we have learned in the last year - 2 of which aren’t in debate:
I'm just not playing a game or trying to win points in a debate. We've spent billions of dollars and an untold amount of time sanitizing when, it certainly appears, that it was unnecessary. I actually think we'll cross the same bridge with masks but we'll get there at a different point.
