California in a nutshell. We were the first state to "lockdown" and our case numbers are spiking.
But California also started easing its lockdown which led to spikes. It's the same thing that's happening in WA. Over here, they've paused the reopenings. Counties that were eligible to fully open are now stuck in Phase 3 and some others are being rumored to fall back to a more restrictive phase.
