Cell Phone Data Provides Surprising Insight into Pandemic Progression

Well isn’t that interesting…

Americans are itching to go.  We’re just waiting for the moment that the rest of this great nation decides to move forward the way in which Texas already has, and reopen the economy for business – no holds barred.   We’ve been cooped up for a year, we’ve suffered losses in every realm of existence, and the coming of several effective COVID-19 vaccines has us chomping at the bit to go out and about.
