Note from the City of Eugene on COVID spread and tracing: “The story the data tells us is that the growth in cases we are experiencing is not isolated to one group. Therefore, the solution cannot be isolated to just one group, and shaming any group is not helpful. People who feel like they will get in trouble are less likely to cooperate with contact tracers, or in some cases to get tested and quarantine at all. The best thing each of us can do is be vigilant in focusing on our own actions and talk kindly to our family and friends about correct behavior.”
