Prison is kinda the ultimate shelter in place.  How are these people even getting sick?

New inmates can bring it.  So can the staff.  But releasing prisoners or not taking in prisoners due to fear of COVID-19 is truly ridiculous.

HA!  I was listening to that song JUST THIS MORNING.  Considering that player has 4,986 different songs on it, that isn't a small feat.  (I listen in that room less than 1 hour a day, so it would take almost a year to hear the same song twice).

But you can still make claims and then avoid questions when called on it.

If masks work, why weren't the prisoners given masks?

Another grocery adventure yesterday. Aldi and Walmart.

100% mask compliance in Aldi. Everyone had a mask on and they even wore them properly, as far as I could tell. Everyone complied with social distancing too.

Walmart? Not so much. While everyone that I saw had a mask on their face (they were required to enter the store), not everyone wore them correctly. I'd say that a good 10% of the folks, that I saw, had their nose sticking out of the mask. Idiot mouth breathers perhaps? One guy was a potato chip vendor, he had a mask but had it pulled down below his chin. A lot of good that does.

One woman who was with her daughter in the produce section apparently couldn't talk with her mask on because every time she spoke to the girl, she had to pull her mask down to speak.   :o   

The worst offenders where Walmart employees. I saw lots of them with their nose out of the mask...

Some of our leaders refuse to wear masks, so why should the regular people do it, right?    >:(

Interesting.  Here, the sign at the front of Walmart says it is strongly encouraged (not required).  What I have noticed is that usage has declined with each visit I have made (which is about once every two weeks).  It was about 90% at first and now around 50%.

Not sure if they are required at Costco (I didn't notice any sign saying so, but I wasn't paying much attention), but each trip I have made there, it was about 99%.

I haven't really been in any other store in months, except Petsmart once, and it was maybe 80% and I noticed no requirement sign, just a sign saying "no refunds/returns".

I'm avoiding Walmart like the plague....although I may have to go there later this afternoon or better yet when they open tomorrow morning.

There are many reasons to avoid Walmart :)

However, if you take proper precautions, there will be an extremely low risk of even catching the virus at all.  And even if contracted, those who have no major pre-exisiting health conditions have an extremely low risk of having seriously negative outcomes.

What I would consider proper Walmart-like precautions (for now) would be:  wear a mask covering nose/mouth entering, during the visit, and exiting.  Do not touch your face or mask during that time.  Wash/sterilize your hands at your car (or remove gloves if using that as an alternative), before getting in your car and removing mask but after the last touch of your cart.  After home and unloading is complete, wash hands again.

I know you're smarter than that.

Need to read a scientific publication of some sort. Lancet or JAMA is fine, suspect Nat. Geo. or NPR/PBS would work too. Fox or MSN not advised as they're often ripe with misinformation and conspiracy theories, much like your favorite social platform. Excluding here of course ;)

Masks work, not 100% by any means but they work to reduce the DISCHARGE of a contagion. Read: aerosol discharges. Quality masks (N95 or better) will reduce INTAKE of a contagion.

As far as penal colonies, I imagine it's difficult to social distance and wear a mask at communal meals. Much less wipe down all surfaces on a semi-regular basis, or wash your lunch hooks with soap and water in your Grey-Bar hotel room. Wearing a mask of any sort in prison may be ill advised too, I don't really know.

Lastly, I read on the internet (so it must be true) one or more prisoners drank out of the same cup in the hopes they'd catch Cornora-19 and be let loose to a medical facility... or to home.

I know of no one who likes wearing a mask, I know of many that refuse to wear a helmet when riding too. Wearing a mask is a team effort, the other end of mass hysteria/panic. I'm fine with you not wearing one, really! If our paths cross before we figure out this CV BS, you best be wearing a mask/bandana/paper towel, or not be breathing.

Illinois' governor has mandated that we have to wear a mask when entering a retail business or when outdoors and a distance of 6' or greater can't be maintained.

I've only been in three different retail stores since the C19 virus has turned the world upside down, Aldi, Walmart, and Menards. Walmart certainly is NOT my favorite store to shop at but it's the only grocery store in the area, other than Aldi.
