Seriously, when it comes down to it, the public discourse on just this one topic is based almost entirely on non-verifiable/verified information from 'authoritative' sources. Have you got a link to any research, by a member of the public, who has tracked down any report, in any medium, to a warm (or even cooling) body? Until you have even one such report, everything you hear, read, view is second-hand, taken on trust and faith. Do you think it a good idea to be in, and to remain in, such a dependant relationship?

Wild rumors around here. The local long-term care facility (also a Life Care affiliate) is testing anyone who comes inside. There's a sign on the door about it. Everybody NOW thinks it's an outbreak. (It isn't.) Our little hospital is quite good, but only has 15 beds.


 

One confirmed case in our little burg officially tonight. So far. Took a while.

Well she had this conference in New Orleans that was paid for, so we used the credit to buy me a GODDAM NONREFUNDABLE MOTHERFUCKING TICKET to New Orleans and now the convention is cancelled so maybe I can go by myself? Or buy Justine a ticket and we'll sleep on benches or something but fuckityfuckityfuckity.
 

Delta came through with a $900+ credit!

The answer to limiting the spread seems simple enough: quarantine
 

Since most people carrying the bug show no outward signs or symptoms, ever, and those who do get ill take 2 weeks before they start sneezing droplets all over my desk, I don't see anything simple about a quarantine. Restrict all movement in and out of any public space until May. That might work.

Or wash your hands. Handwashing stations on every street corner. Put in 5¢, get a robot scrub with lysol and a mechanical manicure. Hold still now!

Maybe next time.
 
This is what my company has done all over the building including hand sanitizer and the Prell stuff which I have become addicted too and it has nothing to do with the virus, I just like how it makes my hands so soft and pretty.
