Again, the laws aren't going to be 'uniform' because they were made by different groups facing different local issues. That doesn't mean the people in those governments 'don't know what's going on'. Some might not. You might not.If they genuinely knew what was going on there'd be acts in place where the laws were uniform, but they're not.
Looping back to the big example - NYC has a population that's largely dependent on mass transportation - dirty, overcrowded public transportation, where you are forced to hold and touch surfaces. Plus land is such a premium the use of every space is maximized. Your work/shopping/church may take appropriate precautions, but if you have to crowd into a Petri dish to get there, or walk a crowded sidewalk, walk through a narrow hall, etc. you are going to have a higher level of risk. That's not the same as say, Houston or Dallas, where there is not the same dependence on public transportation, and spaces tend to be bigger.
