Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

    No one has said publicly where exactly the man lives and works, only that he’s from Elbert County. I-70 runs through a corner of that county. If his likely exposure is linked to that, then the strain is clearly loose. In the early days, when you looked at county-level maps of the US, you could trace the routes of the interstate highways across the Great Plains by linking the counties with high outbreak rates.Report

    The claim now is he worked at an assisted-living facility and another worker has also tested positive.

    I would not be AT ALL surprised to learn the strain was already widespread; it could be what’s driving the California surge. This would seem to suggested against opening college campuses for in-person learning come January. As much as I hate teaching all online….maybe it’s for the best right now.Report
