I hear that covid19 issues are getting better in the RVG. I read that many areas are
returning to some degree of normal. Many winter Texans would begin to return in the very near future. What are you folks that are currently there seeing or hearing. Thanks for sharing any information you may have.

We are enroute at this time.
The numbers are much improved
But only due to some pretty tight restrictions.
We will have Mandatory
14 day quarantine when we arrive and limited activities after that.
We are in Palmview.

Quarantine by choice or mandated? By who?

RGV (Rio Grande Valley of Texas) The little strip along the border.

This park has had two instead of the usual dozen .early October arrivals. My friends are resigned to the fact that there will be little social activity this Winter. It will be boring but warmer than the Upper Midwest. Going to miss our Canadian friends and those who take a pass on visiting one of the Covid hotspots this upcoming season. If you are a full timer like me, it is going to be cheap and okay. If I had a nice home in the Midwest, I would enjoy it for just this one Winter.

There are dozens of regulations and counter proposals being announced by the Governor all the way to local judges with little effect. The locals still crowd the flea markets and the visitors hide in their fifth wheel trailers. Hidalgo County has topped the Covid charts most of this past Summer, even besting most of the more populous Texas counties. Walmart has been requiring masks but they are the exception. Our park has a Mask required sign, but few masks in evidence.

The state of Texas has one of the highest covid rates in the country, averaging about 5,000 new cases a day, and ten deaths a day.

It's one the states on the increase. I am surprised at how many seniors are big fans of Russian Roulette. Can't you live without one lousy season? Remember we are not all President Trump who gets whisked off at the first cough by helicopter to the finest medical facilities available and given every possibible intervention. That is not a political comment, it would be the case with any president, but the average Joe does not get to go to hospital until they are almost critical. So your chances of survival are far less if you get it. 2 of my friends have now died from it.
