I haven't paid attention to what they are reopening but it is only a matter of time until they explode again (rising already, past week over week). That state has proven to be terrible at keeping people safe and alive during this.
Case numbers are somewhat irrelevant, hospital numbers are what need to be watched as that is what indicates serious cases. 900 cases is a drop of water to Florida's tidal wave. And NY positive percentage is way down in the single digits. WNY's positive percentage yesterday was 0.8%, the region SFDL is in was 0.9% and the 7 day average for the state is 1%. Contrast that with Florida's 14.5% and mix in high mask compliance and I'd say NY is doing just fine right now. I have no idea why the Emperor hasnt allowed theme parks to open yet.

Yeah, the silence is deafening. How malls were allowed before theme parks doesnt make much sense to me. Were almost at the point where staffing is an issue in a normal year.
Yeah, at this point I think pretty much every park in NY isn't opening this year. With only a month left in the summer season it'd probably be less financially devastating to just not open as opposed to hire staff and spend money on added safety measures for such a short season.
Plus, King Andy already cancelled the state fair, so yeah, I think I wasted money on a season pass I cannot use. Lol
