Quoted from CrazyLevi:

They need to put padlocks on these church doors, just like they did with bathhouses during the AIDS crisis.

You bring up a good point.

Remember the anti homosexual sentiment that came with the spread of HIV?

I wonder how this is going to affect future church numbers when it become obvious their tithes or more needed then their lives.

Quoted from PinJim:

Lovely. Now we won’t be able to get groceries without waiting in a line outside. Really? How about everyone just stays 6’ away from me. Better yet, 20’? I’m not a big fan of masks for everyone, but I’d succumb to the idea to squelch this idea. Now I won’t want to go to the grocery. What’s next?

The limits are in place so there's enough room to keep your desired 6' away from each other. If they let too many people in the store, it's harder to maintain safe distances. Believe it or not, there are smart people setting these policies...

Really? So we can stand in line, 3’ from each other while people with the snot nosed kids cough and sneeze around me? Right, make sense. Thanks for clarifying.

Just point out that the first of the 4 horses is pestilence and wears a corona, then decode the beast as Caesar (government), point to the people who worship the state and have atheism as their religion, point to bat soup, fire everyone up, and pass the plate. Throw in some ID2020 vaccination chip for good measure.

I went to the park today. There are signs EVERYWHERE. All the people I saw seemed to be honoring the 6ft+ mandate, however. I hope they continue. I don't want the park closed.

Seems like folks already did that no?

Cute fun little cars but sadly not very good as a car or boat.
50 years ago there one parked not far from where I lived.
Then late in 1990s I saw one in North Port MI, Later to be seen on top of a yacht in Frankfort MI

I hope something comes of it but I think everyone is jumping the gun a bit much with the whole announcing potential cures and tests things. Everyone wants to be 'the first'. Bleach for example kills lots of things, but there's a reason we don't inject or ingest it.

I’m growing a garden and setting live traps....

They started this last week at a grocery store chain here. They are limiting it to 100 customers to the store. The lines are minimal to nothing because some people just go in for a few items. The other two chains in town don’t have this problem because their prices are so high. It makes it next to nothing for foot traffic in there with the limit. Home Depot is limiting to 100 per store as well. I placed an order online so I could get in and out. There was no line there. Walmart is looking to do one way traffic.

Quoted from MikeS:

Apparently Wisconsin thinks it's a good idea for people to wait in lines and vote tomorrow. And the majority of people that vote in person are the more at risk population. My State is dumb!

This state is really fucking dumb. All the poll workers bailed (understandably) so city staff have to fill the void. I get to work tomorrow at the polling location from 6:30am to 8:30pm. 14 hours in a gym built in the 30s with no HVAC. Should be a prime breeding ground for an outbreak. Super stoked.

I know they're short an estimated 7000 poll workers across the State and places like Milwaukee are going from having 180 polling places to less than a dozen. With the health risks and worker shortage it's completely asinine for this election to go on as scheduled, especially when you can postpone a couple of months and not face these obstacles. Stay safe my friend!

LA doctor: COVID-19 patients go from 'very ill' to 'symptom-free' in 8 to 12 hours using hydroxychloroquine and zinc

That's the kick in the nuts for me. There are zero repercussions for delaying this thing a bit.

I do appreciate the irony that the Wisconsin Supreme Court made this decision today in a VIRTUAL session..... Hmmmmmmm.....

This is the perfect situation where voting by mail would have been an ideal solution. Just mail everyone a ballot and have them put a stamp on it and return it. But no, we can't do things the safe or easy way! Gotta send Grandma and Grandpa out to risk life and death to vote....

Quoted from PinJim:

Really? So we can stand in line, 3’ from each other while people with the snot nosed kids cough and sneeze around me? Right, make sense. Thanks for clarifying.

Around me they’ve gone to limiting 50 ppl max in grocery stores, plexiglass sneeze guards set up at check outs, hand wash stations, sanitizer, wipe down of cart handles etc. 6’ spacing (Marks on the floor) at check out in a separated line which is pretty easy to abide by when you have a cart.

The issue arises when you’re in the aisles though, it’s impossible to maintain 6’ when you have 2 or more people in an aisle and one wants to pass the other. Walmart tried to mitigate this by marking the aisles as one ways, but no one was following the signs yesterday when I went. Good idea in theory, but no one to enforce it. Also the online order pickers are in all the aisles with their huge picking carts blocking half the aisle.

Costco recently put in a limit of 2 ppl shopping per card because families were taking their kids to do Costco runs and wasting max capacity in store lol.

#8183 9 months ago

Here’s some good news. The logarithmic chart shows new cases in USA trending down (still increasing, but at a lower rate). Maybe social distancing is working. This could also just be due to testing variability, but I’ll take it.

https://www.theblaze.com/news/la-doctor-hydroxychloroquine-zinc-coronavirus?utm

I hope that hydroxychloroquine turns out to be helpful but I can't figure out why there are a small number of doctors seeking out news outlets to tout this drug. I suspect it's being used in most hospitals across the nation right now in a compassionate use allowance. I can say for a fact it is being used in hospitals here in Texas for COVID-19 patients.

If it was a miracle drug and cured everyone like these people are saying the word would be out by now. Maybe it will be shown to help some patients but usually doctors are very reluctant to jump on a drug without good data to back them up.

I just don't get it.

It's probably fair to note that TheBlaze is not a Wikipedia-deemed reliable news source and anything there should be taken with deep scientific skepticism.
I want it to be true but anecdotal evidence won't be enough to make it a real medical solution.

Costco shouldn't be letting anyone even in their stores. In fact nobody should be going into a store. Everything delivered out to a car or to your house, no human interaction. Keep people safe (evidently from themselves a lot of the time). It would be better for workers and shoppers. Plus give some more people a job.

While I was goofing around in response to the weird HIV comment above, nevertheless there is a huge religious hurdle to clear for people to accept such a thing. It's just like the Book of Apocalypse said, man wants to tag people's right hand and only with the mark will you be allowed to buy and sell. https://id2020.org/ ΧΞϛ

Quoted from PinJim:

Their line should have marks six feet apart and folks should follow them. The couple stores I've seen with lines are doing just that.

Agreed with you there if they were able to do curb side pickup in a reasonable time frame, but right now local grocery stores have pick ups 7-10 days out...

They switched hardware stores to pick up only on the weekend and one of the largest national hardware stores (Canadian tire) had their website crash due to volume. This morning it went to a page that says call your local store to place an order... but looks like it’s back up now.

Every retail store is closed to walk ins here, only online ordering and curb side pick up remain. Grocery, pharmacies and alcohol stores are the only things that remain open for retail walk ins.

I wanted to pick up a Blackstone griddle from Walmart but because the stock is low I can’t place the order for pick up... argh...

Saint Louis county closed all of their Parks as well as Missouri State Parks in the county. People were not maintaining distances. Because of this our subdivision is also closing our Park. That being said stencils and spray paint are a royal pain in the ass and the results are poor.

Do you have any sense of its success/failure rate in Texas?

For a bit of levity, cyclones play field is in and looks wonderful. That is very cool to see the pinball in the subway with the clear inserts. More pinball machines should be doing this.

Some positive news from Allstate and American Family Insurance. Maybe some other companies will feel the pressure to jump on the bandwagon.

I don't think it's medically ethical to have a hypothesis like "this drug can save the lives of the ill" and also have a control group.
