Pandemic post: If you don't like the numbers, just rewrite the rules

My county just hit the threshold for closing back down again, due to 7 new cases today. We're at about 3-7 new cases each day for the past week, and 1-2 new cases per day during the week before that - currently 1 death, 3 in the hospital, and as far as I know we still have just 4 or 5 ventilators and 4 or 5 ICU beds.


So you'd think we'd be preparing for tightened restrictions again starting tonight. Well, you'd be wrong. They just redefined the threshold. When our current number of cases doubles, then we'll be back to further restrictions. Assuming the threshold hasn't been increased again by then.
