Thanks for the link. The L.A. Times says I've reached my free article limit and I don't plan to subscribe so I'll take your word for it. I wonder if the west side Sierra counties are doing the same? I know the county I lived in has not gone this far, unless there is something I haven't heard. I'll have to get in touch with the friends I have there to check up. I haven't done so since this pandemic started. Mono County has the advantage of having the Sierra Nevada between it and the rest of Calif. and at this time of year both passes over the crest are closed. I'm glad I got the work done on my uncle's place in Mammoth this summer and that it sold. I don't have any reason to go back. Payson folks want people to return after this pandemic runs its course, but not before! People from out of town require services such as search and rescue, PD, Gila County SO, Fire, medical and such when they come up here and get hurt. Helos are busy transporting COVID-19 or are committed to such. Hospitals may get overwhelmed and if we have a bunch of visitors taking up beds with injuries from their time in the great outdoors, then someone can't get service up here. We are fortunate to be 1.5 to 2 hours driving time between the hospital up here and most of the hospitals down in the valley. But that means we don't have enough ambulances to respond to injuries in the Mazatzals, Christopher Creek and the rest of the Rim Country while that medic unit is tied up on transportation.
