...the surgical masks are garbage and aren't going to really protect anybody from anything, it's just a silly facade, and appearance of doing something noble.

Some masks are better than others, some are worse than others, but with increasing data coming out suggesting that it is both airborne and droplet, anything short of n95 is suspect.

We employees in my org are PROHIBITED from expressing those same sentiments in writing on our internal platforms.

@GOTWA , I think many of the high risk are gone. In NY, Cuomo put COVID positive patients in nursing homes and the virus spread like wildfire.

The deaths per 100K in NY are more than twice as high as FL but there are way more elderly (aka high risk) in FL than NY.

So my sister, who's special needs and has a weaker immune system, had to get a test. Nasal Swab. She was told she won't have results for 3 to 5 days.

Also, Cuomo and DeBlasio are so hilarious. How the hell is this parade allowed to go forward? Oh, never mind I know the answer!!!

What do you mean HAD to get a test. Was she made to get one per some sort of royal decree in AZ? Cuz, don't make me come down there. You can't do that.

I got tested the other day. Results came back today - negative.

Mine was a saliva test. I got tested as a result of friends that tested positive, very mild symptoms - occasional cough. I didn't think I had it but kind of hoped it would've come back positive so I could just push forward.

Same question. Define HAD.
To be clear here, she was Prescribed a test by her physician.

Restaurant owner stands up to the lockdown. Police revoke his business licence, take over restaurant early in the morning, change the locks and arrest the owner.

Police arrest owner of Toronto BBQ restaurant for defying COVID-19 lockdown

Is there any kind of provincial relief scheme going on up there? The reality is that if we remove folks ability to survive perhaps we should put Trudeau in a pup tent until it's over?

Nothing provincially but there is Federal small business loans in place but a business owner has to be near bankruptcy.

This kind of overreach is SOoooo incredibly wrong. I don't know much about Canadian laws but I sure hope that is something that can be challenged and overturned by the courts.

He had two very good lawyer's waiting with him, expecting arrest. I don't think is close to being done.

@lindy I was more or less referring to the below article. We've seen plenty of news about COVID in North & South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, but what about Africa? Haven't seen much of that in the news. I feel like this article is part of a larger discussion, but in other like countries.

Coronavirus: Are Indians more immune to Covid-19?

In Mail, locals pound Hydroxyclorquine like we do ibuprofen and assume it’s Africa-wide to fight malaria. Correlation?

WASHINGTON -- With coronavirus cases surging again nationwide, the Supreme Court barred New York from enforcing certain limits on attendance at churches and synagogues in areas designated as hard hit by the virus.

“Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area. But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty,” the opinion said

High court blocks NY virus limits on houses of worship

IMHO...this was the right ruling. There are other ways to deal with this on the local level, Cumo needed to be put in his place....I hope some of these Governors are watching.

That should have been a 9-0 ruling. Pretty clearly an equal protection case, but hey activist judges and judges that don't even want to get to the heart of the issue. Normally happens all the time when the court sends cases back to appeals courts.

Sitting at in laws house earlier, emergency tones on phone go off, like amber alerts and such.

This one: COVID is spiking in the state, wear masks, wash hands, social distance.

Um, no fucking shit. Let's scare the useful idiot sheep further with end of days via state sponsored warnings. I'm sure these people won't go to the store, stocking up further on lunchables and shat paper.

Lol.
I got the same alert on Wednesday while driving to my folks place in western PA and rolled my eyes.

My latest test was the nasal swab and negative like the others. Yay me.
