    I mean at this point they have to go Tier 3 right, especially with the warnings on hospital capacity? Ban on non-essential retail, doing only takeout, stopping all sports.

    right on!

    Just a matter of when. At this point there’s not really anything to indicate positivity rates in IL will go down and stay “low” without tighter restrictions being imposed.

    I've been up for like an hour and have already heard 4 ambulances from my window. Folks, it's bad

    what part of the city do you reside? I’m in Lincoln Square and it’s fairly quiet.

    I’m in Logan and it’s been fairly quiet, with the exceptions of loud boom sounds at night??

    Also, I’m really worried about the next few years in the state now that the Fair Tax failed. My wife is a public school teacher and I’m a union rep for public employees, and budget cuts and austerity would be pretty awful for not just us, but the majority of Chicago/Illinois.

    My dad is a a pretty standard center right guy and I tried to talk him into voting for it but he just doesn't think that Illinois politicians aren't crooked enough that they won't use it to screw people over and raise their taxes. That seems to be the common theme, people not trusting the state government enough to actually do what they say it's gonna do. Weeeee austerity

    Same sentiment from family members, who lean more left.

    Yeah, i think it’s a mix of the reputation of Illinois elected officials and classic “ten degrees to the left of center in the best of times, 10 degrees to the right if it affects them personally” liberals who can vote for Biden but don’t want their taxes raised.

    Ugh. Just terrifying. And my wife should go into labor at any time in the next week.

    Well that would certainly explain the ambulances

    It is nice to pick up from Jibaritos y Mas and watch all the people celebrating while eating on the porch

    I'm about as liberal as they come, but I've been far from impressed by Foxx.

    That map of the fair tax bit does not surprise me in the slightest

    Illinois. Stop.
     
  20. That video is from Daddio’s in Bloomington, one of my least favorite places in my hometown. Not surprised at all that they’re operating like normal.

    My dad tested positive for COVID so that means I also very likely have it so that’s great!
     
  22. Shit, sorry to hear that. Hope you both have mild cases and get through everything okay.

    Thank you! I’ve been feeling fine - no symptoms so far so that’s good. I just got back from getting a test so I’ll know for sure soon, but being that I still live with my parents and have been in close contact with my dad there’s just no way I don’t have it. My family is all in generally good health so I think we will be fine, it’s just a mix of worriness and annoyance having to deal with this.

    I'm sorry your dad caught it. Wishing he'll be well again soon & that your test comes back negative
