Believe it or not, there are still a few places in the U.S. that the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t reached. But not many.
USA Today reported that, as of last Thursday (10/15/20), there were just three counties left that had yet to record a single coronavirus case. Esmerelda County in Nevada, Loving County in Texas, and Alaska’s Skagway borough (top and below) have all avoided COVID-19.
When you look closely at those places, it makes sense that they would still be untouched by the pandemic. Esmerelda and Loving counties have the lowest population density in the U.S., while Skagway is surrounded by mountains and only reachable by air or water. It’s a pretty compelling argument for social distancing.
Having you thought about relocating to a more rural area to avoid the pandemic? Where would you want to go?
