    a lot of local governments are just gonna run out of money to pay their workers. Hard choices will be made about how to pay police, fire, 911 staff, EMS ect. I'm sure some places are working on super thin margins on their budgets and all sorts of lost revenue on taxes. This will be especially hard for places with high tourism economies.

    Lost utility taxes on large non essential factories, work places, downtown buildings ect. lost hotel taxes, lost entertainment taxes, casino taxes, taxes from bars and pubs and eat in resturaunts. the list goes on and on.
    let's see which mayors, aldermen, committee people ect give up their salaries early.


    get ready to find a place to keep your own trash for a few months.

    Lots of reasons we know and some we don't I'm sure.

    -population density

    -huge international airport, plus a higher population that has recently traveled to foreign nations due to being 1st, 2nd generation immigrant with family still overseas.

    -more testing, than any other state so more deaths labeled
    correctly.
