A very Old Man
will the people with mental health issues infect 3 more people or is crazy now infectious? I'll get my aluminum hat!!!Loophole or no loophole, I'm staying put and being an obedient citizen. For one, I just welcomed my first child into the world last Friday so my leash is extra short regardless of the pandemic situation.
I do however think as many have pointed out that it feels a little backwards that It's totally OK to drive to the pot shop or Starbucks but illegal for me to walk or drive a quarter mile from my house to fish my local SRC beach where anybody within 30 feet of me is likely to catch a sloppy tailing loop in the face.
Call me selfish but cabin fever is real and those of us living in cramped urban dwellings with no gardens or wood shops to occupy our idle hands are starting to get stir crazy. Most Seattle workers have been working from home for a month now. If this goes on much longer, we are going to have a mental health crisis on our hands.
Stay safe folks and be sure to keep a sense of humor through all of this.
I read an article today saying scientists are thinking this will become a seasonal outbreak like the flu. Was this our last winter steelhead season?All I'm gonna say is that this is a once in a life time thing.. our governors cannot do this every time the think there is an emergency.
This is there one shot, the next virus 5 years down the road? Hell no..
That could happen but the hope is that an effective vaccine will be developed in the next 18 months. Then the vulnerable members of the population could vaccinate to minimize risk and those with less risk could choose not to, much like the Flu is treated now. Until then it is going to be a challenge to balance Public Health concerns against Economic pressures.I read an article today saying scientists are thinking this will become a seasonal outbreak like the flu.

Ha, ice cream, candy bars and Suzy q’s. I knew there had to be some secret to your longevity.They all make it sound that if you get in your car to go fishing that you will probably get into a wreck with no body to help you. The mentality of some people is stupid. I went to the store this morning. I was out of Dixie cups of Ice Cream. Needed some paper towels also. So why I was there I also picked up a candy bar and some Suzy Q's. I made it home safe.
I haven't had a stiff drink since last year some time ago. I don't do drugs. I have what passes for a a fifth of Jim Bean, and the same for a fifth of vodka. I have a pint of Yukon Jack, but I have never drank any of it.Ha, ice cream, candy bars and Suzy q’s. I knew there had to be some secret to your longevity.
I assume they were out of whiskey and heroin ?
Do you have any fly boxes with compartments? They look a lot like ice cube trays to me...On a more personal front than my post above, it is not about each of us but what impact we have on others. NYC is in a crisis. It is THE hot spot in the nation. What is occurring there is only a week or two on what could happen here or in CA. Listening to Gov. Cuomo is flat out scary! More reality than fiction? Only time will tell...
What I consider is that we are one of the hot spots. The governor has taken action to prevent a NYC catastrophe (hopefully). There is a lot of discussion about a 'two week window'. What we see today is two weeks old. Acting now is two weeks late.
For those WFF individuals taking a very preemptive approach and implementing/supporting necessary actions to this pandemic, I applaud you! You know who you are...
I have been quarantined from my family for 2 weeks now. My choice... I have multiple health issues and there were some concerns about COVID. So far the concerns were alleviated. When I see a temp rise or have a cough, I think the worse. BTW does not help my high blood pressure (LOL).
My daughter and her boyfriend just recently were hired by hospitals to work in labs - they just graduated from college with degrees so that they could work in lab environment.
I can tell you that living in quarantine is NO fun! Texts suck! Lunches/Dinners 'food on the landing' is getting old. I got resupplied with some booze and found there are NO ice cube trays in the house. WTF!
