This right here. There are people who know good and well their loved ones have been out and about in the Rona and they still invite them over to their house. And because they're kin, they don't make them wear a mask or let them wear it wrong. Not to mention all the packages they are getting delivered that they are not sanitizing before they bring them in.
I agree. Just because we're family doesnt mean anything especially if we don't even live in the same household. On one of the family Zoom meetings, my cousin wanted everyone to get together and said that she trusts us because we're family. I disagree. Just because we're family, you don't know where I've been, who I've been around and vice versa.

We are fighting lack of common sense at this point. You got parents fighting to not have to wear masks and participate in a shut down, and then because they refuse to sit still, schools are opting not to open at all. I think that if the option were only open to people who's job truly prevents WFH options, you'd see at most about 15% of kids returning.

In my district we made a last minute decision to keep my rising 1st grader home. We knew she'd have a super small class size of less than 15. Her Kinder class at max capacity was 16. My issue was they literally said and I quote: "We can't guarantee we'll be shutting down a classroom or the school if a teacher or student tests positive for COVID." They said the contact tracers will contact the students exposed (possibly if the parent can identify all the students) and then if its a teacher, they plan to bring in a substitute. Had they had better plan, we would have considered it. But nope.

And now, parents who originally opted to send their kids are demanding to be allowed to choose the virtual platform because the deadline to choose was Monday.
I see your point but you see the way things are in your area as the demographic for the rest of the country. I live in an area where a high percentage of the population work in the 1000 bed hospital, doctors offices, law enforcement ect. About 40% of the local jobs are in that arena.

Work from home is less of an option than most would like for it to be. The hospital I worked from has even canceled PTO except for emergencies during the outbreak. Those in the business offices are able to work from home more often but even they need to come in a few times week to a few times a month.

I didn’t recall this. Thank you. Now we can’t treat illness as just a simple cold.
Yes, you can, just use natural stuff. I was prescribed something in the same drug category for a sprained ankle and because I’m wary of all prescriptions didn’t take it. I did a natural anti inflammatory.

Two Lysol cleaning products have proven effective in killing the novel coronavirus on hard surfaces, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced.

Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist received approval Monday from the federal agency for their effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. They are the first surface disinfectant products to receive such approval; the EPA said it expects more will follow.

Lysol spray also causes cancer with long term use so people should use this when necessary and not every day.

Bleach isn't considered a surface disinfectant? I'm almost positive the bottle mentions coronavirus but I guess this is different from specifying SARS-CoV-2.

I work for the Public Health Sector in N.FL
I have a friend on the ground in public health in Lauderdale. Stay home and do essential runs. Its a mess. We have all been trained and have a blueprint on how to handle these issues. Leadership refuses to use it. People are quitting her job left and right. She just texted me today. They are leaving needed services behind to man the testing sites. But people are getting COVID and are quitting
LAWD :nono:

And it also looks like we may be on the cusp of another shutdown here: https://www.local10.com/news/local/...y-force-broward-to-shut-down-vice-mayor-says/

The level of stupidity, ignorance, and lack of concern for fellow humans is astonishing. But then again, maybe it's not. Y'all be safe and watch out for these sub-humans.

What's going on with California? They shut down early and seemed to have it under control for awhile. I don't understand why the numbers are going up so dramatically now.
