What a difference a day makes. Or to update that rhetorical message, what a difference three months makes. Yes, it was just three short months ago when states like Florida, Texas, Arizona and a host of others across the south and southwest were seemingly enjoying some inexplicable level of immunity from the coronavirus pandemic. Businesses in those states were reopening, residents were enjoying the outdoors, without a mandate to wear a mask. Restaurants were serving food and drinks and life was slowly returning to some level of normal.
