Like Gary Chartier, I have a problem with the term "social distancing." I believe Chartier calls it Orwellian. I'd probably say it seems to be something more akin to _A Brave New World_* than _1984_. Anyhow, he recommends using "physical distancing with social solidarity." That seems a double redundancy. How about "distancing with solidarity"?

Regarding the folks in Florida, are you aware that they've pretty much reopened before when the photo was taken? Yeah, there are still some restrictions, but they're further along than California. I'm not sure how this has affected case rates.
