Hanging out with people? What's your COVID risk?

I've always liked maps.  This one can be scary though.   Researchers at Georia Tech have created this interactive map showing every county in the US.   Adjust the slider to see what the likelihood of getting COVID-19 are based on the number of people at a given event in that county.

CHECK OUT THE MAP HERE!

You'll see that in King County, an event with 25 people gives you a 20% chance of getting the virus.  Compare that with an event with 25 people in Orange County, Florida, or Disney World, and that jumps up to 81%.  No thanks.  I'll stay right here, thank you.

Adjust the slider... have fun.   

And WEAR A MASK!
