Does anyone in this forum actually know anyone who has come down with the current unmentionable something happening to some unnamed someone's in some places all over everywhere that are being reported breathlessly, with a dry cough, and so on?

Seriously, when it comes down to it, the public discourse on just this one topic is based almost entirely on non-verifiable/verified information from 'authoritative' sources. Have you got a link to any research, by a member of the public, who has tracked down any report, in any medium, to a warm (or even cooling) body? Until you have even one such report, everything you hear, read, view is second-hand, taken on trust and faith. Do you think it a good idea to be in, and to remain in, such a dependant relationship?

Wild rumors around here. The local long-term care facility (also a Life Care affiliate) is testing anyone who comes inside. There's a sign on the door about it. Everybody NOW thinks it's an outbreak. (It isn't.) Our little hospital is quite good, but only has 15 beds.


 

One confirmed case in our little burg officially tonight. So far. Took a while.

Delta came through with a $900+ credit!

The answer to limiting the spread seems simple enough: quarantine
 

Since most people carrying the bug show no outward signs or symptoms, ever, and those who do get ill take 2 weeks before they start sneezing droplets all over my desk, I don't see anything simple about a quarantine. Restrict all movement in and out of any public space until May. That might work.

Or wash your hands. Handwashing stations on every street corner. Put in 5¢, get a robot scrub with lysol and a mechanical manicure. Hold still now!

Maybe next time.
 
This is what my company has done all over the building including hand sanitizer and the Prell stuff which I have become addicted too and it has nothing to do with the virus, I just like how it makes my hands so soft and pretty.

This gets my vote. Probably not to many crowds and you'll have the plane to yourself.

 

Yeah and I'm guessing the hotels are reeling right now. Think they're willing to entertain offers yet?
