We have the perfect storm of lots of Northern 2nd home owners

and our short term rentals never stopped renting and our hotels for the most part never closed. Northern People I met said once they started shutting down their states they figured they would rather be stuck in Hilton Head which I get. School was all on line so whole families came down. We ended up with more people than we would normally have in April. Georgia people flooded in when their beaches were closed since we are basically within spitting distance of Georgia.
I have a lot of friends in Food and Beverage and they are kind of screwed right now. Places are packed and if they get a fever they have to go home for 14 days with no pay.
They finally started offering free covid test to everybody at the High School parking lot and that has been packed so it will be interesting to see what the numbers do. I had to have the test before my surgery 3 weeks ago and I have no desire to have that foot long q tip jammed into my brain again so I am not getting tested again unless I have definite symptoms
