Outbreak in Tuscaloosa

Looks like we've got ourselves a nice little outbreak in Tuscaloosa. This is probably from the university restart. It appears that by trying to marginaliza concerns and refusing to report data, the university may have encouraged bad behavior. Note that classes at the university only started on Wednesday and in-person classes at the schools in the county (outside the city) started on Thursday. There hasn't been enough time for either of those to even show up here and our rate is already pretty clearly headed up into an outbreak that will probably be worse than what happened in July. Finally on Friday they instituted a moratorium on all non-class student events after 15/50 students attending one event tested positive. Next week is likely to be rough.
