COVID-19 Update Thread
In February I created the "Corona Virus Fears?" thread (https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/163143/corona-virus-fears/p1)
It went 11 pages deep and a lot of good information was passed back and forth.
A lot has changed in our world since February and I am curious to hear first hand reports from our community members all over the world how things are looking in their parts of the globe.
For me here in Florida the state started opening in early May and by early June basically all pre-covid businesses were reopened (bars, restaurants, salons, theatres, etc). There are still some restrictions based on occupancy but more or less business as usual. Unfortunately there is not a state-wide mandate requiring masks in public and most folks in Florida (and it seems many other US states resist mask wearing).
It seems the science is now very clear, when a sick person wears a mask and a healthy person wears a mask, viral transmission of COVID-19 can be reduced by approximately 90%. Folks should wear masks if for no other reason than to be courteous to those around them. I wear a mask whenever out in public, including when going out to eat until I reach my table.
So, how are things looking out there folks?
