“Coronavirus cases are reaching record highs. Hospitals are overflowing in several parts of the country…. But as the final weeks of 2020 begin to mirror the grim, early weeks of the pandemic, the shelter-in-place orders and strict industry regulations that helped flatten the curve in the spring are almost nowhere to be found. Instead, public officials are pursuing another approach to managing the virus’s spread: a plea for personal responsibility.”
