Excellent reporting. Now, the next time around, how would you feel about posting the entire Population of Clark County and how those numbers look percentage-wise. That might make more people WOKE of how small a scale this thing that is killing our economy. We are nowhere NEAR Seattle's numbers, yet are having to follow their rules.
