Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Recommended Posts

media is blaming its surge on reopening too quick but not on protests. it might be just a rumor for now but some states/cities are considering 2nd lockdown. 

and another controversial killing and this time in atlanta. this is the full version. 

 

this morning one of customers showed me a partial one thinking it was the full version. it was missing first couple mins which makes it look like rayshard brooks was sleeping in his parked car and the cop was unlawfully trying to arrest him and seemed to have racist motive. but the full version shows rayshard was driving while intoxicated and fell asleep on wendy's drive thru so the cop had every right to arrest him for dui. but its too late, rioters burned down wendy's and 100s of looters targeted walmart. this thing is not going to end anytime soon i dont think..what a mess

crap man. another mandatory mask order and $1000 fine to those who do not. crazy county judge over here shes pathetic. she didnt say a peep when protests and ritors caused havoc for two weeks, but its us law abiding working citizens who have to suffer now. all employees and customers have to wear one. my mask was hanging on my left ear almost all day. so thats close enough har har. some brands of supplies running low like cigars/cigarettes and imported beers and banks only give out 5 rolls of quaters per week when we need boxes so its making my job difficult. florida i heard is planning a 2nd lockdown and another stimulus check is vey close to pass and we could get it as early as august. we'll see.

Wow. We're entering a phase 4 reopening this week. Movie theaters, etc. Will be opening back up. We still have the mask order in place. Mostly we have to keep them on at all times in grocery stores, etc. But outside of businesses we only need them on when closer than 6 feet from somebody. You can walk down the street with no mask on, but if you are going to walk past someone, slip that mask on. I've also seen plenty of cashiers have them off until a customer gets close, then they'll slip them on. Mostly in smaller businesses, gas stations and hardware stores.

Restaurants here have indoor and outdoor seating but the tables have to be 6 feet apart and there's no enforcement of masks on staff working in restaurant kitchens. I guess it's because it's so hot. Everyone seated to eat don't wear masks but when you get up to enter or leave you have to wear them. It sounds dumb, but apparently all the rules must be working because we're not getting any spikes in cases here.

I don't see a second lockdown coming, not without even more civil unrest. Honestly if they try it, everyone should just disregard it completely. I don't see law enforcement trying to expend energy to stop it on a massive scale after what's been going on the past few weeks. Its amazing how this is all of the sudden an issue again after massive gatherings, rioting, looting, and destruction of property. The media said nothing about CV for weeks, and now all of the sudden everyone needs to stay at home. The only reason the riots were as bad as they were in the first place was because people are bored and frustrated and had nothing better to do.

Nothing should close, but workers shouldn't be penalized for not going to work. People that don't feel safe can stay home, but we cannot function as a society like this. We can't do more stimulus, the government is taking in less income tax right now with how historically high unemployment is. We're pass the lockdowns.

I think I'm more likely to die from 2nd hand smoke than I am from COVID-19.

Have a neighbor who likes to pace out in the front yard while smoking.

And keeping my windows closed now only guarantees that my brain is going to get fried.

not good. all bars are closed in texas. all restaurants dropped to 50% capacity from 75%. my nephew's daycare center is closed bc one of employees has corona, my fav bakery shop was closed since last month bc owner got sick so who knows when itll open again, and best buy i use to go to got permanently closed so now i have to drive extra 15-20 miles to shop at a different location. yesterday i had to line up outside and waited 30 mins to enter (just before big rain was dumped on my way home). no more than a week ago we were all free to enter and shop so thats a big step backward. i wont be surprised if best buy revert back to its curbside pick up only and go out of business like the other one. banks are still drive through only here and line's way too long. so unnecessary when places like walmart, target, and body shops've had no such restriction and inconvenience during the lockdown. and recently two night clubs were raided here and got their business licenses taken away for letting too many ppl in. and my manager saw undercover cops lurking outside the store early this week so thats comforting to know..not. we have to put signs that requires customers to wear masks and stores can be ticketed  if these new restrictions are not followed. im sure other states will follow similar suit soon. cant control everyone but it seems like they are punishing businness owners and working ppl as if its their fault for govts failed response to corona at the early stage. they are going to tank the economy at this rate.

Are your Best Buys small? I find that odd they don't enjoy the same benefits that Walmart and Target do. The reason they get all the slack is because the capacity of a building has zero to do with anything health related. It's set by fire codes. So since Walmart and Target have huge buildings with square footage, their 50% isn't even close to their average capacity during busy hours. I know this from standing at the door at the store I work at and counting people to make sure we didn't go over. Since its a grocery store. it's 50% is around 500 people... we never even made it to 200. Capacity could have been cut to 10% and we'd only gone over max by 10 people a few times. That just shows how useless the strategy it is for most places.

I had some old lady yell at me one day because "there were too many people in the store" (120 at the time) so she was gonna find somewhere else to go. I'm sure she felt like a dumb fuck when she went to walmart where their 50% capacity was 600 higher than our pre-lockdown max capacity, and there was probably over 500 people in the store. 🙄

Any store in NY that sells groceries was considered essential and never shut down. Dollar stores have grocery sections so they had the same weak restrictions as walmart. Our area is in phase 4 reopening but they didn't allow movie theaters or the malls to open yet at the last minute. We've had no hot spots and just about every business around here is now open back up in some capacity. We did have a lowes employee test positive last Sunday so everyone that shopped there should self monitor, but everyone is wearing masks so its not spreading. I gotta say, masks are working here and is helping prevent the spread. Everyone got used to wearing them and nobody even comments about them anymore. Some people don't like the masks, others wear them wrong. Some businesses are not enforcing it for outside lines when they should be and some people will give you a mean look like they'll beat your ass in the parking lot for not having one on. Other businesses straight up enforce it and tell people to leave the store if they don't have one on. Other stores will give you a free disposable one. But enough of the population is wearing them to be very beneficial and continue the reopening. I'm honestly surprised there wasn't a federal order for everyone to wear masks, if that was done covid could have been completely under control in the entire country least a month or 2 ago.

its standard size bc other 2 best buy stores i went to have similar interior space and displays. but the one thats permanently closed had larger options of hd tvs and games bc of competition nearby. target was only walking distance away and walmart was a couple streets down. i went back and forth between target and best buy looking for better deals of games, tvs, and apple products etc when i wanted to buy something that i didnt want to order online. when the lockdown started, they were closed for like a month and i think that really hurt that place while target benefitted with almost no restrictions. and any work place that had corona positive employees, the place had to be shut down for 2 weeks minimum. schools were suppose to open in august but thats likely not going to happen, and i havent heard any plans about 4th of july here but other cities are canceling parades and firework shows. normally around this year, there should be firework stands all over the place for several weeks prior but i dont see them anywhere

i wonder how accurate these surge numbers are. my coworker told me today that one of customers said she was very ill last weekend. went to hospital and without any tests done on her, they told her she had corona so she needed to stay home. she had fever, diarrhea, and coughs, but later turned out to be some kind of throat/stomach infection. thinking she had corona, she got home but it got worse and worse so she called an ambulance twice bc first one wont take her in. when she got there, they gave her the test and it came out negative. so basically first hospital she went to probably reported that one of their patient had corona and sent her home to be quarantined. and i doubt that 2nd hospital notify first hospital that they diagnosed her wrong and needed to correct their corona case numbers for that day. i mean watching local and national news about surge in houston, all their hospital footage shows nothing but empty beds and interviewing maybe one or two patients. *crickets* and im suppose to believe them that its getting worse here than how italy was. anyway ive been asking a few customers (those who visit hospitals regularly) if they have to wait in long line and they tell me hospitals are not that crowded and seems normal like any other day. when houston was suppose to have its peak in april or may, it didnt have the test available except for extreme cases only. now people are trying to get it done by thousands everyday even for a slight cold or allergy and im sure there might be mixed ups and errors in data bc they are extremely overwhelmed and not well prepared. but we still have one of lowest death rates due to corona compare to other states/cities. at least one thing i know for sure now is im immuned. some of regular customers had tested positive and their coworkers or relatives come to let us know why they were missing for days. id been exposed to them daily and that was way before mandatory mask was ordered and no one was wearing masks then. and one irony thing, county judge who championed face mask mandatory here is sick at home with corona. guess her face mask didnt work.

Masks are suppose to prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading it.

It's probably super rare for someone who is Asymptomatic to cough or sneeze on someone else.

So they're basically pointless as anyone who is sick would have to be quarantined anyway.

On the bright side I unintentionally scared the guy in Apt 3 when I first wore the Angry Joe Show Army Mask in early June.

And I plan on doing something Plague Doctor related when I buy Fruit Loops in July.

The malls around here will be opening back up this friday. No news so far about when movie theaters will open back up yet. The numbers here have still been good and we've had no deaths in this county for a week straight.
