In the last weeks the desire to disprove this virus has taken great turns, even as we learn more. This is not from a desire or hope based on empathy, I fear.

Yes that’s the key that we could all be carriers and have no symptoms. If I have to go out shopping for supplies I wear a buff around my face. You can’t get access to a mask because of supplies, but everyone can put something over their mouth and nose to prevent them from spreading the virus. I’ve had a couple people comment that the buff will not protect me from getting the virus. I always reply it’s not for me it’s for you. everyone should assume that they already have the virus even though they show no symptoms. that way we can help protect our family and friends from ourselves

Default Outdoor bar business

We have been cooped up for days so decided to take a ride in our car to see some areas we haven't visited in awhile. As we drove through Brownwood at 3:30 pm yesterday we immediately noticed the outdoor bar at City Fire was full and it appears social distancing was absent there and everyone appeared to be having a good time, both seated and standing directly behind those seated. These are the same people who could be carriers who will frequent the grocery stores when we dash through to get needed weekly supplies. Very disturbing. Maybe that is considered curbside service?

People should listen to this epidemiologist talk about what we need to do. https://tinyurl.com/rf42oly
Part of what she said: “It’s really hard to feel like you’re saving the world when you’re watching Netflix from your couch. But if we do this right, nothing happens,” Landon said. “A successful shelter-in-place means you’re going to feel like it was all for nothing, and you’d be right: Because nothing means that nothing happened to your family. And that’s what we’re going for here.”

Get outside. Take walks in the neighborhood. Wave to neighbors. Breath fresh air. Enjoy the sun. Stay healthy.

We walked around Hogeye Marsh today and saw a lot of people out enjoying themselves. The singer at Edna's was very good.
We’re staying away from crowds but I haven’t read anything that indicates fresh air is a no-no right now.

Medical experts have said that going outside for sun and exercise actually is healthy and improves immunity as long as people stay at least 2 meters apart.

The virus is spread by someone coughing or sneezing via droplets that are spewed from their nose or mouth. Normal breathing does not enable the virus to shed. Anyone who is coughing or sneezing should not go out in public places.

I was next in line for the register at Target two days ago. The older woman who was working the register suddenly started to cough up a storm and she was coughing into the back of her blue gloved hand. Luckily I had stayed back at least six feet when the person before me was being rung up. I backed up with my cart and told her that I was sorry but I was going to another register. As I was making a B Line away from this woman, she rolled her eyes at me and stated she just has allergies. She acted as though I was the bad guy.
