I agree; the shitheads at Fifth Avenue in Royal Oak and Harper's in East Lansing have ruined it for everyone. More than 100 new cases have been traced to Harper's.

Generation Z = irresponsible douche bags.
Believe me when I say that most of gen Z does not give a crap about going outside and doing things right now. Most of the people old enough to even go to bars are millenials and up anyway. The spreading of the virus can't be pinned down on any one generation. It's just all of them.
That’s true Gen Z are living in mom and dads basement. Order their food from Grub Hub and play video games all day and just don’t have jobs. So you’re correct F-Squared. Gen Z are all lazy asses.
Just so you know I'm part of Gen Z and I fully agree with that. I will say though I'm looking for a job at the moment so hopefully that bit changes sometime soon.

Edit: and for clarification, no I'm not even old enough to move out yet so the reason why I haven't moved out isn't because I'm broke, although I'm not saying I'm not broke either.

Good for you. You’re an exception to the rule. I have grandchildren all but one are lazy asses, I blame their parents because they weren’t brought up that way.

That's true, which is why I said most aren't able to drink and thus can't go to bars. That's a 4-year group of people out of a 20 year long generation.

I’ve heard 1995, 1997, 1998 or 2000 as a start... I’ve always used 2000 myself...

I erred in referencing "Gen Z" exclusively.

I should've simply referenced adults between the ages of 20 and 30. Basically, the oldest portion of Gen Z and the youngest portion of the millennial set.

Still you can't really blame it on the young people. It's also the older people who are going outside, so really, it can't be pinned down on any single group of people.

A lot of folks in the medical community and the governors of California, Texas and Florida seem to agree millennials are a big problem at the moment.

They are not social distancing, they are not wearing masks, they gather in large groups often, and then they visit their parents or grandparents while asymptomatic but contagious.

It was Gen-Z and millennials who were packed in like sardines at those bars in East Lansing and Royal Oak. Both businesses should be fined harshly for clearly ignoring capacity limitations.

They’d also be the two groups most likely to say “I’m invincible”...

The young think they're invincible and don't think they'll get it and are spreading the virus around. And I also think that those that do COVID parties should be arrested which why would anyone want COVID anyways that is risking lives along with going to the hospital as well idiots & morons.

Can you name of one instance where a "COVID party" has happened in the state of Michigan? Because this is news to me.

Don't forget that there's still some older people who are far-right Trump supporters who still believe that the virus is a hoax, that wearing masks is something the government is using to put us in line and that they shouldn't have to wear one, and that they think social distancing is military protocol that they're using to order us around. They exist. And that's why you can't blame the spread on any one demographic. They're all for blame here.


Additionally, I recommend you both look at this article about a study conducted by the BBC about which demographics are contributing to the spread and how: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... estaurants

Here's one important excerpt from that:
What we have found in this data is that adults aged 20-50 make most of their contacts in workplaces. If those of us who can work remotely start doing so now, it will contribute to lowering overall transmission in the population. Another important finding is that people over 65 – who are particularly at risk from severe Covid-19 illness – make over half of their contacts in other settings (not home, school or work), such as shops, restaurants and leisure centres.

Hydroxychloroquine lowers death rate by 50%. Shame that the governor didn't have open mind more lives could have been truly saved.

This is good, but I hope people don't buy into the hype thinking this will prevent them from getting infected in the first place. There's a lot of immunocompromised people who need hydroxychloroquine and we don't need another shortage of it again.

Just leaving this here to remind those of you who like to complain that it's not Whitmer, it's your kids. There are several photos that show it worse than this.

BTW, 90+ % of visitors to the sandbar are from downstate and will be returning home with COVID this week. Grand Traverse county has one of the lowest rates in the nation...

Exactly. However, older people are also at fault, according to the study I linked above.
