    NOPE !!

     

    Unless you have a N-95 mask with an air tight seal a mask only protects others from you if you are sick. Unless you have an N-95 mask with an air tight seal, you are actually increasing your own odds of getting sick PERIOD ...

  2. It was a German study. In aerosolized form, you have be pretty close - hence the six feet. Some of the conclusions from the study came under heavy fire.  

    A few studies have shown droplets can travel 12 feet or further from a cough or sneeze. I did not personally read those particular reports. Dtel read them and passed the info along. He made the statement that according to one report he read we could be sitting on our front porch and someone passing in their car could pass on the road and if the wind was blowing the droplets could reach the porch. Our porch is approximately 100 feet from the road. Not sure how true that is....but he read it.

  3. After ignoring several calls to my cell phone from an unknown Ohio number with no voicemail left, the persistent caller finally left a voicemail.  It was Ryan from PNC Bank calling to initiate the closing on the PPP loan.  Documents are now reviewed and E-Signed.  The $$$ are to appear in our business checking account soon.
     
    Ryan was a pleasure to deal with.  He informed us that PNC is the 7th largest bank, but processed $14,000,000,000.00, the 3rd largest amount of PPP loans.  That’s punching above your weight.
     
    I’m pleased that I have had a long history with PNC.  They are big enough to get things done, but still provide personal service.

    This is great news. Such a relief for you. Congratulations!!!

  4. A change from all the BS here. Dtel and I are so proud of our oldest daughter. Nice to know how much her employer appreciates her too. She’s on the frontline.

  5. I think it could get worse than that here.  I worked in Russia in the mid-1990s in the arctic oil fields and also in two large cities.  In that era (post communist and pre mafia), Russian general society was more cohesive than what we have here now.  It was a sort of shared victimhood after a long period of suppression by a truly evil empire.  The political divisions here are so deep (just look at this thread) and driven by special interests that it will only get worse no matter who wins in November.

    That’s because some people are just sore losers and refuse to unite for the betterment of this country.

    I didn’t particularly care for some our of previous Presidents, but I respect the position enough to not be disrespectful. Disrespecting the highest office in the country just doesn’t go hand in hand with my beliefs.

    Disrespecting anyone isn’t acceptable to me. We are all individuals. No one is perfect. To blatantly disrespect another human being in any form is just evil, in my opinion. Again, the hatred by some folks makes me completely rethink my opinion of them.

  6. How utterly ridiculous.  I pay both state AND Federal taxes, and I'm getting tired of funding golfing trips and parties for the rich and well connected.

    Of course you consider the concept ridiculous. It’s also ridiculous that federal funds have to bail states and local government out.

    Federal taxes should be reserved for federal programs and projects. State and local government should be responsible for funding their programs and projects.

    What a novel concept.

  7. I was getting ready to make the same comment about self-preparedness, but it occurred to me that governments exist for the purpose of serving the unprepared.  No matter how right you are to claim people should be prepared, the fact is that 80% won''t be.

    Unfortunately personal responsibility is a rarity these days. This creates an imbalance in society that is difficult to overcome, placing the task squarely on the shoulders of the government.

     

    If those people would put forth just a 50% effort we wouldn’t find ourselves in the predicament we are in as a nation. Sadly, there are those who would rather sit with their hand out.

     

    Additionally, some people are so blind, selfish and unwilling to budge in any direction that getting anything accomplished is nearly impossible.

     

    The hatred that some folks have towards another’s value or opinion is quite frankly disgusting.

  8. Question:  If you had to prioritize development of vaccines vs stockpiling PPE considering budget limitations, where would you put resources?  With the benefit if hindsight,  I don’t know.

    Individual states and medical institutions should be responsible for “stockpiling/providing” PPE and not depend on the federal government. Individuals should take responsibility and have their own masks, provisions, etc in the event of an emergency. You know, kind of like seasoned veterans of hurricanes make sure they have adequate supplies.

  9. Would love to know more about this. There's a gazillion youtube videos on this. What is she using for a pattern?

    There are free patterns available on the internet. Just Google “free face mask patterns”.

  10. My concern is that there is a high rate of false negatives/positives with some of the tests for CV19. What is the test that had the elevated numbers? It sure sounds like you were experiencing symptoms from CV19.

    This isn't meant to be political, but the truth is that most migrant farm workers/laborers are Latino/Hispanic immigrants (legal and illegal). With the current policies, a lot of food crops will rot in the fields because there is no one to work.
     
    Meat processing plants are some of the most dangerous places to work. It's going to get worse in some places before it gets better.
     
    A lot of our food supply in the US is handled the same way all our cheap work from China has been done.

    Seems like our citizens need to step up and make a choice. There are people who can work. It’s time we focus on our country and what can be done to recruit our citizens to work those jobs previously held by migrants.

    Again, it’s your choice because this is America. Work or don’t work. Stay home or not. Wear a mask or not. I’m not going to decide how the rest of America lives just because I’m in the vulnerable group. I’m responsible for my own health and well being. I choose not to give that authority to the government. YMMV.

  12. People that are not showing symptoms, but are carriers will make a lot more sick and die. This is not a flu it is a worldwide pandemic.

    You have a choice. Stay home or not. It’s really simple. I’m in the vulnerable group. I’m cautious when out in public and who I “associate” with.

  13. Sure would hate to be shoved into a situation where I am literally forced into working in an already unsafe environment with my own health and those of my family is jeopardized just because someone wants a pork chop.

    If I am satisfied that all of the PPE

    and other details are out in place

    for our mutual protection put in first, then we'll talk about work.

     

    Then don’t work, this is still America. I’m sure someone would be happy to have a job. You have a choice.

  14. Finally, something positive about the food supply:
     
    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-defense-production-act-meat-processing-plants-open-coronavirus/
     
    There really is no choice with this as the 80% reduced processing which the White House official said could happen would be the end of the country.

    The interesting aspect of this act is that it protects the companies from possible liability lawsuits from workers possibly exposed to “unhealthy working conditions” while maintaining supplies necessary to human life.

    In the words of my favorite NFL coach Sean Peyton. “Just do your job”.

    Again, I understand the risks involved with “vulnerable groups”. I will sacrifice my well being to insure that our food chain doesn’t fall victim to a judicial system that has evolved into a “sue happy” environment.

    For those in the back, I am in the high risk category. That being said I would gladly take a position on the front line that keeps our food chain secure.

    If you haven’t read this, now may be the time.

  15. I was told that the virus cannot survive cooking...so no need to sanitize meats. We have been washing all our veggies, and fruits for years anyway.

    We wipe off the packaging.

  16. the part of this virus thing that is really burning me up is the conflicting information. Wash your groceries we’re told. Brother’s dietician from hospital calls him this morning and she’s telling him, no need to wash what you purchase from grocery store, technically it can have the virus on the product but the chances of getting it that way is very low. 
    You’d think the health care industry would speak with one united voice; but that’s not the case. 
    So once again, just like AIDS back in the early 80s, one person saying one thing, another saying something totally different. 
    our minds are engaged in this grand ping pong match and it’s all getting tiring. 
    Why are so many afraid to say “I don’t know?"
    i think before you say you can’t get it from a certain thing, you’d better be right, likewise don’t say you can if you don’t know. I find “I don’t know” to be a more comforting answer than BS meant to either ease our concern or stoke the hysteria. 

    We sanitize all groceries before they get put away. It’s kind of like hiring an attorney...nobody knows your case like you do. It’s just another dollar for them.

    It’s better to be safe and wipe everything down.
