How about we just stay out of the senior citizen facilities, until we're 'cleared'?
That would be a good idea. Pretty sure they're pretty careful about that.

But it doesn't do much for people who are aren't in those "facilities."


How about we stay out of the ICUs and other areas with people who have 'compromised' immunities?

Or, how about this! How about we let the people WITH 'compromised' immunities to decide for themselves, how to live?

Like my father, for instance, who was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 terminal brain cancer, in March, and given a four month life expectancy.

While he is a retired cop, he never stopped working. You'll see him tomorrow, if he's your bailiff at a Texas court house.

He's got GREAT medical, thankfully, but his days are numbered. He will die, any day now.

But, if it's not today, he will be in court tomorrow morning.

Does he count, as 'compromised'?

Your dad embodies exceptionalism, by treasuring every moment of life. God bless him!

Thank you, Care! I agree. I what's sad is how many people want him dead. He just wants to continue to contribute to society, until he physically and literally can no longer.

If you don't want to wear a mask, try a gaiter. Very comfortable, stylish and hip. My GF a well known accessories designer and fiber artist: has been mfg & marketing her gaiters since the 1st of Aug. There is some discussion that a gaiter may not be very effective. She started with masks sporting a Hawaiian print but they still looked stupid even though they sold well. But for the budget minded, I tried duct tapeing a coffee filter to my face and it worked extremeness well. You could probably get the same effect by substituting a clean sock or a depends.

Because we live in what are known as "communities", where many things we do affect others. Particularly when it comes to public health. But those with "compromised immunities" [sic] are not the only ones at risk.

His immune system? Maybe not. Unless he is, or has recently undergone chemo or radiation therapy.

He gets both. Actually, he's taking a "cancer pill" right now.

Fained at work last week, busted his head open. Doctor said it was from dehydration.

It's been suggested that he stay home. He'd rather live.

Then his immune system is likely to be compromised.

I was having the same problem too. I got this thing called a mask cage or a face cage and it goes under the mask. It keeps it from touching your lips and nose as well as keeping the mask away from your eyes.

The more people who wear masks, and wear them properly, the better. It's a matter of reducing risk, not eliminating it.


Sorry, man. The rules just state a mask over the nose and mouth, says nothing about micron rating or degree of flushness needed. This wasn't fleshed out properly to begin with, that's a big ol' loophole ripe and ready for the mocking.
Even I deliberately thumb that one and don't look for properly fitting masks anymore, nor do I form them the "proper" way around the nose. They don't sit on my face and stay put anyway, they ride all the way up to the lower lash line, so I'm constantly #ing with them to re-situate them. That much fiddling doesn't do anything useful. So why would I bother trying further? By nature of constant fiddling to keep it lower on the face (disposables and cloth alike) I'm negating any benefits already.

You want solidarity get a grip and know why exactly they put that
diaper on your face. They got you spending money on those
things so somebody makes a # load of cash number one.

They have everybody in obedience mode for something worse.
It's a hoax and you're a follower so don't try to lead anybody
any where. You just keep go'n towards the cliff. Worried about
some crap.

I wear a mask if I am anywhere where there are people and I’m inside a building, like a store or restaurant. I stay home for the most part. I limit my grocery shopping to once a week and try to stay six feet from others. My grocery store is always crowded, no matter what time I go, so the six feet thing doesn’t always work out. I have about 20 different masks to wear, and I keep buying more. I like them to match my outfits. If I have to wear them, at least I’m gonna try to be somewhat fashionable.

In answer to your question, if I found out I was COVID-19 positive, I would quarantine myself totally for two weeks and then get tested again to make sure I was no longer positive. I would never go out. That would be irresponsible, downright criminal to me. I know that all may not agree with me, especially the alt right that comprise most of this site. I really don’t care what others think. I will do what I feel is morally and ethically right. Screw the haters.

Every single person I know who tested positive (17+) self-quarantined for two weeks. My mom, who cared for my dad when he had it, quarantined herself as well, even though she never tested positive for it. Most of these people were completely asymptomatic and self-quarantined.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that those of us who don’t believe the hype about this virus are assholes. Just because we don’t feel a person should be forced to wear a mask doesnt mean we are going to go around infecting people if we get the virus.

If that’s what you have been thinking, get a grip.

And how do you know whether or not you have the virus?

You sound like the hater, though, don’t you see that?

I’m this evil alt-right of which you speak, I guess. Read my posts. Everyone I know that had covid self-quarantined. My mom even self quarantined for two weeks even though she never tested positive for the virus. In fact it took a good deal of my spare time up, because someone had to do the shopping and supply runs for my parents; my
mom didn’t have it, but my dad did, and she didn’t want to possibly carry it outside the house. Most people I know believe a person shouldn’t be forced to wear a mask- it should be the choice of each individual. You want to wear a mask? Go for it. Are you afraid of the non-mask wearers? That’s ok! Stay the #ck home then.

Literally not one person I know thinks it would be ok to know you have ANY virus and yet run around willy-billy. And I know some real assholes. Even the assholes I know wouldn’t do that. So you and your fear-porn addicted compatriots have completely made his sh!t up in your head.

**SNIPPED**

So that’s your solution? Get tested before you go out, or wear a mask?

Phage, if you are afraid that someone is out there walking around trailing covid-19 germs everywhere they look, don’t go outside.

How in the hell do you get through flu season? However you normally get through flu season- do that.

You can choose to stay home if you are afraid of the covid germs. No one is going to stop you.

All right, you make a good point. I apologize. I’m certainly not perfect.[SNIPPED] Try not to get personal over it okay? Thanks.

Just wear a mask. It's no big deal.

Bull#. The places I go (like the grocery store), people are masked.

There are flu vaccines.

Sorry to hear about your dad. It must be difficult watching any type of decline but more power to him for going out on HIS terms.

I've often wondered how I would handle my remaining days if face with a terminal condition. Sure it depends on the circumstances but if faced with a painful, debilitating prognosis under treatment versus a steady decline and natural end, I'd go with the later.

Be strong
