LA County is on a lucky streak probably because of mask wearing,the holidays behind us and maybe some herd immunity.The infection rates are hitting a plateau,so I can see some people thinking the crisis is over when it isn’t.There is a danger of complacency,so I hope local residents not stop what they are doing.This streak could end.
