Default A friend of mine died from Covid

This was not in The Villages, he went to Costco, got infected and passed away--just to reinforce--right now--your most danger to exposure occurs when you leave your house

I've been putting off shopping for over 10 days now, may extend for another 14 days

Not worth dying for a steak

I'm truly sorry you lost your friend.

But you may want to reconsider

"he went to Costco, got infected and passed away"

Really?

And now Wal-Mart is making matters worse by lining folks in a single file outside of the store.They are allowing only so many in the store at a time.Two come out and two go in.The problem I see with this is the fact the folks are not practicing SD.You have folks sneezing and coughing just feet from you. I know we all are trying to do our best here.Stay safe.
