Unmasked and Unworried in Alphraretta, Georgia

The Washington Post’s Stephanie McCrummen ventured this weekend into a wealthy area of shops, bars, and restaurants in Alpharetta, Georgia. She found mostly unmasked and unworried people “eating, drinking, touching and throwing caution to the wind.” Some quotes she gathered:

  • “I’m not in the older population. If I was to get it now, I’ve got a 90 percent chance of getting cured.”
  • “This is glorious — I think the news is blowing it all out of proportion.”
  • “When you start seeing where the cases are coming from and the demographics — I’m not worried.”
  • “I’m getting my nails done tomorrow — screw it.”
  • “I know what people are going to say — 'Those selfish idiots are killing our old people!’ ”
