    Is physical distancing the same distance for indoors as outdoors and what are the recommended distances?

    And does physical distancing apply when eating or exercising?

    If you are living with others, should you change shoes and clothes before entering the home?

    Is the half staff mask the most common way for employees to wear one in businesses (top of mask under nose)?

              Thanks, living up here we’re able to see our breath in the winter so it’s pretty obvious.
              If we can slow this virus then we can ALL stop wearing masks.

              Good video. I'll share it around, especially to my skeptical and contraian friends.

            I saw a similar video awhile back showing how droplets passes through different types of mask.
            From best to worst
            N95
            Two or three layer cloth mask
            Surgical mask
            bandana
            faceshield

            The faceshield was only good if used with a cloth or surgical mask.

              My EMT friend uses both a face shield and surgical mask, along with gloves and tyvex, when transporting Convid patients.

            This is happening all over the US & there are many examples.

            Florida’s ‘Covid-19’ case spike includes gunshot deaths, motorbike accidents - report

            An investigation in Florida found that several deaths were wrongly attributed to the virus, including the case of a man who died from a gunshot wound to the head.

            The CDC’s website lists over 3,700 coronavirus deaths characterized as "intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events." In Texas, more than 3,000 people were recently removed from the overall coronavirus count because they were never actually tested but considered “probable” cases.

            CDC director acknowledges hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths

            It's an election year folks...

              What do you suppose the percentage of the population that IS NOT infected with covid is 99.9???

                Hears a true story to take all this positive testing with a grain of salt, and to show what a joke these numbers are saying!!!!
                buddy of mine was telling me yesterday at work:
                his friend lives in Texas, his family of 6 were coming to Illinois for a wedding, so they wanted to get tested before they left, they filled out all the paperwork and stood in line to wait to be tested, after two hours of waiting they said screw it and left, never got tested! A week later the results came in the mail, ALL SIX TESTED POSITIVE!!!
                WHAT A JOKE!!! I know many of you are worried and take all precautions, but honestly I take all this media crap with a grain of salt.

                  In the military they referred to those as sink tests.

                  Collected specimens were dumped down the sink (in this case not even collected).

                  Then false results were issued.

                  Maybe just a rumor.

                  The rate of deaths per infections may not be as high as some at the CDC originally thought, but 160,000 deaths so far, and it's likely to go much high, is high by any modern standard. Besides, I don't think anyone wants to spend huge money and have a ventilator shoved down their throat and be in an induced como for a week or more.

                I posted that video of how effective masks are to my Facebook page and a friend in Florida asked me about the many 10's of thousands of people that die every year from the normal flu - are we supposed to wear masks forever now? My reply was yes. If seasonal wearing of masks in close public places can save a bunch of flu sufferers in the years to come, why would we not do that? Asian people have been wearing them for years.

                I'm very skeptical of just about everything about this virus but as has been often said: Admitting that you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

                I wonder, when frustrations run high enough and they can't blame it on Trump anymore, if we'll end up going to war with China over this. And speaking of China, I'm thinking this whole seeds business is their way of stress testing our response to a biological attack through the mail.

                  I don't think we'll have to wear masks once we get past Convid, but we'll all be more cognizant of how easily germs can spread. I certainly don't plan on wearing this fucking mask forever. But I think social distancing is here to stay. Shaking hands? Not so much anymore. And I'm sure a lot of us will carry hand sanitizer.

                    I like to see a study done, pick a couple hundred random mask wearers & check their masks for harmful bacteria.
                    I wouldn't doubt that in 10/15 years there's hundreds of thousands of people with lung diseases from breathing thru a bacteria magnet all day.
