Not knowing the answer to that seems to be the entire problem.
I don't think anyone knows the answer to the actual infection rate. Attached is an older article from the spring. They tested 397 people at the Pine Street inn homeless shelter, 146 came back positive, all were asymptomatic. Granted this is an older article maybe they didn't do the test right but I thought I would share the article.

Sounds like she believes in science.
Sounds like Sarah could use a friendly visiting boarder knocking on her door asking for directions to the Mountain Resort of choice for the best snow conditions. Wearing winter Baclava of course. Maybe a scarf wrapped around face and neck if its Blizzarding. If she feeling friendly maybe a ride to the Mountain too. Help save on parking spots and the planet.

Best snow hunting to all this year. See you on the mountain hopfully.

Haha!

Kidding aside, if we behave courteously around others in the lift lines (which I presume will be pretty spread out to begin with) and elsewhere, I really don't think anyone should have guilty conscience about visiting "someone else's" home town to go skiing. Hopefully, Sarah will realize she just needs to do her grocery shopping midweek and avoid unnecessary trips to the store like the rest of us have been doing since March anyway.

Yup...Sarah is convinced that resorts shouldn't open at all this year and was continually asking Sugarbush and MRG's GMs how they could possibly justify opening this year and "inviting outsiders to VT".


Nah....she just wants to have the entire place to her self.

Very true. Although the mistake you made was expecting people like that to think rationally

I don’t personally know a single person who’s having a good time right now. What‘s your basis for this claim?
" Never let a crisis go to waste "
Pretty famous quote ,it's a shame that there are people out there whos first thought is how to benefit form others pain. You apparently don't think like that to your credit.
