CDC, WHO, and DHHS have been diligent about broadcasting updates; however, no one is listening at the local levels, certainly local public health depts (which are too busy cutting services and in general confusion); or the general public which won’t pay attention until bad things happen – or CDC, etc determine a way to raise concern without panicking folks.
