It's been nice re-opening the restaurant, mostly to regulars, but the bar thing feels like a huge mistake (and most of my bar friends, both owner/operator and low level employee, seem to agree) because it's one thing to regulate how people enjoy a meal and an entirely other thing to regulate how people enjoy an adult beverage (or two).


Seeing the Memorial Day Madness only further complicates my feelings on all this. I've found some dark humor in the rollout, though. For example, in restaurants customers can't have a drink without food on the table, and until bars are re-opened we haven't been allowed to open up bar seating, but once we are customers who sit at the bar ARE NOT allowed to have food, while customers at tables are STILL REQUIRED to have food.

It was bizarrely easy to forget Nebraska was run by a bunch of half-ass leaders doing a Maypole dance around the GOP for a few weeks, even easier to remember.

Otherwise, it's really strange being in the Midwest, in our usual economic/national crisis bubble, and yet more aware than ever that the coast's problems could come for us at ANY time. I can't tell if the summer weather makes it easier or harder to deal with all this than if we were transitioning into winter instead.

I work at a hospital and the stats they share out with us say there is a 4.7% positive test rate.

So if you're thinking about going out - just remember 1 out of 20 people you meet probably have it.

Lawmakers Are Outraged By A "Lazy, Incomplete" Report From The CDC On Racial Data For The Coronavirus
“The Trump Administration would prefer to ignore the disproportionate impact this crisis is having on communities of color,” said Sen. Patty Murray.

Kadia Goba
Posted on May 28, 2020, at 11:05 a.m. ET


WASHINGTON — As communities of color are disproportionately dying from the coronavirus, Congress asked the CDC to collect national data on the race and ethnicity of COVID-19 cases and deaths.

On the day of the deadline set in law by Congress, the CDC responded with a page of links that referred back to its public website.

The Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, “should be embarrassed by the lazy, incomplete, 2.5-page copy-and-paste job it calls a ‘report’ on the racial disparities of COVID-19 cases,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted last week.

Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, sent the report to Congress on March 15. The links that CDC forwarded include some racial and ethnic data on the coronavirus, but it is incomplete. The report includes a link to the CDC’s updating data on cases and deaths across the US, but only includes race and ethnicity information for less than half of the 1.7 million people who have tested positive for COVID-19.

The report also linked to the CDC’s data on hospitalizations broken down by race and ethnicity, but that page only includes data from specific network hospitals in 14 states, totaling just about 10% of the US population.

“This wholly inadequate response tells us nothing except what we already knew: the Trump Administration would prefer to ignore the disproportionate impact this crisis is having on communities of color,” Sen. Patty Murray, the lead Democrat on a Senate Health Committee, said in a statement.

The CDC did not respond to several questions on how it obtained its data or the timeframe in which it will update the information. And while incomplete, Redfield wrote that the CDC data does suggest “a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups,” adding that “studies are underway to confirm these data.” The CDC did not respond to BuzzFeed News’ requests to specify what kind of studies are being conducted.

The report comes after Congress passed its most recent coronavirus stimulus package, which required the CDC to report COVID-19 race and ethnicity data to several congressional committees, as they investigate the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on black and Hispanic people.

Last month, a group of bipartisan members of Congress urged the Trump administration to gather data on high-risk communities in order to better understand the racial disparity and aid those communities in response to the pandemic.

Health experts say complete reports are key to addressing COVID-19 disparities in communities of color.

“Thus far, the fragmented data we are getting from HHS, state, and local sources paint a very fragmented, but troubling picture,” Northeastern University health policy expert Leo Beletsky told BuzzFeed News in an email. “Systematic national data are necessary to understand the full scope of the issue and to target resources where they are most needed.

Beletsky went further to suggest the administration’s slow-walk of the data is an effort to avoid criticism of its coronavirus response and conversations about longstanding health disparities among people of color.

“Ultimately, these data will force some very difficult conversations about bungled responses so far, as well as about broader questions of race and racism in America. This is why agencies are dragging their feet on making these analyses available to lawmakers and the public.”

Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who also signed onto the initial letter to the CDC asking for race and ethnicity data for COVID-19, told reporters on Wednesday that black people represent nearly 40% of all COVID-19 cases in Boston (38% according to city data), despite being 25% of the population.

“We will use every tool at our disposal to uncover why this administration waited so long to take any action and make clear the grave consequences of their inaction,” Pressley told reporters on a call. “And while oversight is critical, we must also keep up the pressure on this administration to take action now before we are robbed, unnecessarily, of even more lives.”

Sen. Tim Scott, the lone black Republican senator and the only GOP member to call on the CDC to provide race and ethnicity data of COVID-19 victims, is instead urging states to report their own data.

“In South Carolina, we regularly receive and can readily access disaggregated demographic data on both cases and fatalities,” Scott told BuzzFeed News in a statement. “Our model is effective and consistent, and I hope other states and stakeholders would follow suit in reporting these critical numbers that can only help us stop the spread in our most vulnerable communities.”

As of Wednesday, black people, who make up about 27% of South Carolina’s population, accounted for 52% of the coronavirus cases, according to state data.

The House-passed Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act (HEROES) also would require the CDC to provide race and ethnicity data to Congress with money to assist states with their collection of data. But that bill has not passed the Senate, where Republicans have said the legislation is dead on arrival.

In the meantime, the CDC is still required to provide another report within 30 days of the one just released.

“We are not done pushing for answers and action here, not by a long shot,” Murray said.

"Regardless if you listen to me, in the end we'll see."

7. "Interesting (very) recent study concerning droplets & ventilation:"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Small droplet aerosols in poorly ventilated spaces and SARS-CoV-2 transmission`

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600(20)30245-9/fulltext

SWIPE:

Globally, health-care authorities are searching for effective measures to prevent community transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Although data on factors related to this transmission are scarce, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 is thought to mostly be via the transmission of respiratory droplets coming from infected individuals.1 Small droplets, from submicron to approximately 10 μm diameter, produced during speech and coughing, have been shown to contain viral particles,2 which can remain viable and infectious in aerosols for 3 h.3 The droplets can be transmitted either directly by entering the airway through the air (aerosols),4 or indirectly by contact transfer via contaminated hands. The mode of transmission could affect whether an infection starts in the upper or lower respiratory tract, which is thought to affect the severity of the disease progression.5 Notably, the dose–response relationship of SARS-CoV-2 infection is still unclear, especially with respect to aerosol transmission of the virus. However, aerosols containing a small concentration of virus in poorly ventilated spaces, combined with low humidity and high temperature,6 might result in an infectious dose over time.
To better understand the spreading of respiratory droplets and possible preventive measures, we analysed droplet production due to coughs and speech by measuring the droplet size distribution, travel distance and velocity, and the airborne time in relation to the level of air ventilation.

We did a laser diffraction measurement using a spray droplet measurement system (Malvern Spraytec, Malvern, UK) to determine the size distribution of respiratory droplets in a single cough and during speech. In a cough from a healthy volunteer, we found two distinct types of drops, large droplets (100–1000 μm in diameter) and small droplets (1–10 μm), with the small droplets being much more prevalent (appendix p 1). During speech, only the small droplets were found (appendix p 1). Although large droplets have been specifically related to coughs,4 here we observe that both sizes of droplet are produced by coughing.
Next, we used a SprayScan (Spraying Systems, Glendale Heights, IL, USA) laser sheet to track droplets by filming the scattering of laser light by droplets from a cough7 to determine the speed of the droplets and their trajectory. Large droplets were observed to fall onto the ground rapidly (appendix p 2). We found that although the speed of the drops ranged 2–7 m/s at the start of the cough, the visible large drops (typically 500 μm in diameter) do not travel far before their trajectory bends down due to gravity to rapidly fall onto the ground within 1 s. This observation can be explained by balancing the forces of gravity (F=mg; where F is force, m is mass, and g is acceleration) and air drag (F=6πηRU, in which η is the air viscosity, R is the radius of the droplet, and U is the falling velocity), from which it also follows that the small droplets of typical radius of 5 μm will take 9 min to reach the ground when produced at a height of 160 cm (ie, average speaking or coughing height). These small droplets are of specific interest because they have been associated with aerosol transmission of the SARS-CoV-2.8 We also investigated droplets coming from the nasal cavity, and found that with normal breathing no droplets are detected above the background noise level (2·3 droplets, and 2·6 droplets for nasal breathing). From a sneeze, we found mostly very large drops, originating from both the buccal and nasal cavities, that are not persistent.
The same laser sheet was used to investigate how long small droplets from a cough will float through the air. We used a specially designed spray nozzle from Medspray (Enschede, The Netherlands) to disperse a controlled quantity of small droplets into the air, reproducing the effect of coughing. The droplets have an average diameter of 5 μm and are dispersed homogeneously by the spray nozzle. We analysed the number of droplets passing through the stationary laser sheet suspended in the centre of the experimental chamber using an algorithm that detects the illuminations caused by the droplets. We repeated this experiment in three rooms with different levels of ventilation: no ventilation, mechanical ventilation only, and mechanical ventilation supported by the opening of an entrance door and a small window (appendix p 3). In the best ventilated room, after 30 s the number of droplets had halved, whereas with no ventilation this took about 5 min, in agreement with the air drag calculation that shows that 5 μm drops from the average cough or speech height take 9 min to reach the ground. In a poorly ventilated room, the number of droplets was halved in 1·4 min.
Although we only studied healthy volunteers and did not study patients with COVID-19 or virus-laden aerosol droplets directly, our data on droplet size distribution and persistence does have implications on requirements to use face masks to prevent virus transmission. Transmission by aerosols of the small droplets studied here can only be prevented by use of high-performance face masks; a conventional surgical mask only stops 30% of the small aerosol droplets studied here for inhaled breath;9 for exhaled breath the efficacy is much better.10
Additionally, the long airborne time of aerosols we found here affects the reliability of temporal and spatial contact data between individuals as monitored by proximity tracing via smartphone apps. These findings need to be considered in the development and implementation of these apps.
This study shows that better ventilation of spaces substantially reduces the airborne time of respiratory droplets. This finding is relevant because typically poorly ventilated and populated spaces, like public transport and nursing homes, have been reported as sites of viral transmission despite preventive physical distancing. The persistence of small respiratory droplets in such poorly ventilated spaces could contribute to the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Our findings confirm that improving ventilation of public spaces will dilute and clear out potentially infectious aerosols. To suppress the spread of SARS-CoV-2 we believe health-care authorities should consider the recommendation to avoid poorly ventilated public spaces as much as possible. The implications are also important for hospital settings where aerosolisation by coughing and medical treatments and close contact with COVID-19 patients is very common.

The Trump administration with no advance notice removed warnings contained in guidance for the reopening of houses of worship that singing in choirs can spread the coronavirus.

Last Friday, the administration released pandemic guidance for faith communities after weeks of debate flared between the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those guidelines posted on the CDC website included recommendations that religious communities “consider suspending or at least decreasing use of choir/musical ensembles and congregant singing, chanting, or reciting during services or other programming, if appropriate within the faith tradition.”

It added: “The act of singing may contribute to transmission of Covid-19, possibly through emission of aerosols.”

By Saturday, that version was replaced by updated guidance that no longer includes any reference to choirs or congregant singing and the risk for spreading virus. The altered guidance also deleted a reference to “shared cups” among items, including hymnals and worship rugs, that should not be shared. The updated guidelines also added language that said the guidance “is not intended to infringe on rights protected by the First Amendment.”

Two White House officials said the first version posted by the CDC was not approved by the White House. Once West Wing officials saw it, they asked the CDC to post a different cleared document without the choir references and other parts.

The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk about policy discussions, said there have long been concerns within the White House that there were too many restrictions on choirs. A CDC official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the guideline change also said the updated Saturday guidance was approved by the White House.

Earlier this month, the CDC issued a report warning about “superspreader” events where the coronavirus might be “highly transmissible in certain settings, including group singing events.” That report described a choir practice in Washington state in March at which one person ended up infecting 52 other people, including two who died.

“Members had an intense and prolonged exposure, singing while sitting 6-10 inches from one another, possibly emitting aerosols,” the report said. The infections probably took place during a 2½ -hour choir practice attended by 61 members.

White House officials battled for weeks with CDC aides about the scope of reopening guidelines. Officials in Vice President Pence’s office, the domestic policy council and other members on the president’s coronavirus task force were resistant to establishing limits on religious institutions even as the CDC issued detailed road maps for reopening other settings, including schools and restaurants, and as the agency warned of the dangers of significant virus transmission rates at religious events.

Some officials in the White House and on the coronavirus task force did not want to alienate the evangelical community and believed that some of the proposals, such as limits on hymnals, the size of choirs or the passing of collection plates, were too restrictive, according to two administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss policy decisions.

Some restrictions imposed by state governments have become a point of contention for conservative religious leaders, an important constituency in President Trump’s political base.

Even as states have begun reopening, public health officials continue to warn against mass gatherings or settings in which people will be in close quarters, and note that religious gatherings have been the source of several outbreaks.

An outbreak at an Arkansas church killed three and infected dozens, according to a CDC report. The outbreak began after a pastor at the church and his wife attended church events during six days in early March and spread the virus. At least 35 of 92 attendees at church events became infected, including the three who died, all over the age of 65. An additional 26 infections and one death in the community were probably linked to contact with people infected at the church events, according to the report.

14. "Fauci says Trump no longer talks much to him....."
In response to Reply # 0


          

https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-fauci-says-trump-not-consulting-health-experts-frequently-2020-6

Fauci says Trump no longer talks much to him or the rest of the coronavirus task force

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US's top infectious-disease expert, said President Donald Trump was now only rarely meeting with public-health experts on the coronavirus crisis.

In an interview with the health-news outlet STAT News published early Monday, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was asked whether he was in frequent contact with the president on the progress of vaccine candidates.

"No," Fauci said.

"We used to have task force meetings every single day, including Saturday and Sunday, and about 75% of the time after the task force meeting we'd meet with the president," Fauci added. "So I was meeting with him four times a week back, a month or so ago.

"But as you probably noticed, that the task force meetings have not occurred as often lately. And certainly my meetings with the president have been dramatically decreased."

The US has been consumed by protests and riots in cities over the past week, but the nation also faces a second problem: how to get out of the coronavirus crisis. COVID-19 has killed more than 100,000 Americans, and the pandemic has devastated the economy.

Meanwhile, Trump has clashed with health experts, touting unproven treatments and ignoring the safety measures they've suggested, such as wearing a mask.

Trump has not hosted daily coronavirus briefings since April, when he disastrously proposed investigating disinfectant as a coronavirus treatment.

According to reports, the coronavirus task force, which Fauci is a key member of, continued to meet behind the scenes.

Trump and Fauci have also been at odds over the pace of states reopening from lockdown measures. In testimony before Congress in May, Fauci warned of the risk of lifting the restrictions too soon. The president is said to be intent on holding the Republican National Convention in August with no social-distancing measures in place.

The president recently unveiled a new campaign slogan, "Transition to Greatness," and pledged to lead America's economic resurgence.

In the STAT News interview, Fauci said he remained concerned about lifting lockdown measures in areas where infection rates remained high, alluding to the photos that emerged over Memorial Day weekend of people at packed pool parties.

"When I see a situation where there is a region, a state, a city, a county where there's a considerable amount of viral activity there, and you see people crowding around bars — and there were several pictures of that, that was quite striking over the last couple of days — or on boardwalks, where they're very, very close to each other, I do get concerned," he said.

CNN took their coronavirus info panel down as soon as the protests started. I barely heard one word about it from them since. Fauci and the gang are almost completely forgotten.

It's crazy how the biggest (still ongoing) story in a long time can be dropped so quickly.

Gonna be REAL tough to try and get people on board to go backwards.

The quarantine/lockdowns did exactly what they were designed to do. Slow down the virus, "flatten the curve", etc. It was never going to completely defeat it. We were able to accomplish what we intended to do, even with groups of people (as well as local governments) going against science and going about business as usual.

But where does that leave us? Well, we could continue to live in this midway point between normal life and lockdown, but can we really convince people to go about that life for another 4-8 months? Doubtful. The people who are tired of this and want to get back to normal life see the results of the last few months and rather than recognize the effectiveness and relative success, see it as a failure and proof that quarantines/lockdowns don't work since Corona is still here (assuming they admit it's still an issue to begin with).

We've tested people's patience and people are ready to just move on and deal with repercussions of opening up America. I can't argue with them. As someone who hasn't had their job affected (I am at 100% employment and working from home with no issue), doesn't have to worry about feeding a family, etc I can't possibly know what life is like right now for the people who are really impacted by quarantine/lockdown.

Mentally I'm getting exhausted, but I'll live. I'm going to continue to avoid crowds/bars/etc until all of this passes but I get it.

I read somewhere that for herd immunity we need ~60% people with antibodies. Based on testing we've done we are at like 8%. We're not even close to ending this.

but we have 2 kids under 5.. lol. I worked more at home than in the office.

but I agree with you as far as lockdown is concerned for people who lost jobs. Like.. if I worked in a restaurant how do I feed my family and pay my rent/mortgage?

It’s about to get super ugly. Then you have the GOP waiting to see if the economy bounces back before even considering another stimulus bill for working Americans.

Probably the largest transfer of wealth in our countries history.

Data suggests it's "very rare" for coronavirus to spread through asymptomatics
https://www.axios.com/who-coronavirus-asymptomatic-patients-08d84e31-1846-44d8-8fe1-2343ff850764.html


So, what does this mean?

Does "asymptomatic" means you catch it, never have symptoms and then recover from it? (Or maybe you have symptoms but even in when examining your health and using good faith you don't recognize it as COVID?)

Or does that mean people WITH symptoms are going out and spreading it, ala a zombie movie where someone is bitten by a zombie then starts to feel a little "off" but doesn't tell their friends they were bitten and ignores it until it becomes a problem?

Or does it mean, you catch it, you have it but you don't feel symptoms then you give it to other people, then later, say the next day you feel symptoms?

The fucking conservatives are saying "See - this is all bullshit - they told us one thing then later they told us another - AFTER THEY TOOK OUR FREEDOM AND RUINED OUR ECONOMY!!!"

But as the article says:

The bottom line: These statements are a reminder of just how little we understand about this virus.

most folks that have it dont actually show symptoms or get sick. which is the tough part because you have no real reason to get tested if you dont get sick.
edit: i'd imagine most folks are finding out they had it and are asymptomatic only ever got tested either
1) job reasons
2) somebody they came in contact with had it and got sick, so they got tested as well

This is why we need A LOT MORE testing.

Also someone needs to explain exactly what this means simply in like a 1 minute clip.

Check out what Andy Slavitt tweeted, he had a lot of the same questions I did:

The biggest swipe from the thread is:
-they acknowledged to me directly that they can’t distinguish between asymptomatic and low-symptom people

This is what I was is confusing me - asymptomatic (have it , but don't have symptoms) vs. pre-symptomatic (have it, but symptoms will occur in the future) vs low symptomatic (have it, but don't realize they have it because they have mild symptoms the either don't notice, or mis-attribute to something like allergies.)


Link to thread: https://twitter.com/ASlavitt/status/1270135499659923458

-thread-
NEW: The WHO made a surprising announcement that asymptomatic people w COVID rarely spread it.

I’ve talked to 4 reputable scientists, the White House, and the WHO.

I believe this was an irresponsible statement even though it was based on legitimate observations. Thread here.1/

Here’s what I understand. They have a relatively small amount of contact tracing work in China where they found most people claimed to have gotten sick from someone who had symptoms.

When I discussed with scientists and doctors, each was in a bit of disbelief that this would put out. They pointed out:
-there are 4 studies which show asymptomatic spread
-people are not reliable reporters of whether they have symptoms
-by their own admission, they can’t be sure

-reporter by member states doesn’t reach a bar of rigor
-WHO said up until a week ago that people didn’t need to wear masks. They then changed their minds.

I asked— does this mean people don’t need to where masks? They said no. People should wear masks.

(When I told them this would cause people not to wear masks, they were concerned).
-what they actually technically said was that symptomatic people so most of the spreading. The majority of people have symptoms so this is not news.

-in the us, 20,000 new cases are being reported every day. Most symptomatic people are home isolating. Where are these new cases coming from? Pre- & asymptomatic people.

---HERE IT IS (EMPHASIS HANDLE'S------------
-they acknowledged to me directly that they can’t distinguish between asymptomatic and low-symptom people
----Look at the thing above--------

-if this were true there would be no spread at schools. Israelis schools just shut due to spread of CV infecting students & faculty

In response to Reply # 20


          

Lowkey after reading about this yesterday and I had a twinge of regret I didn’t hit the protests, I was like “Dang I coulda taken that risk after all, since asymptomatic transmission is ‘very rare’”

Now that they’ve walked it back today I’m back on my “Oh no, that WAS a smart move on my part after all” bullshit lol.

But yeah things seem to change weekly in terms of new information about the virus that sometimes helps us and sometimes hurts us in terms of being ready to truly reopen in a safe way.

Hope the researchers keep on researching and we find out more and more (accurate) information.

In response to Reply # 0


          

What changed?

I can't find any reasons other than:

People are sick and tired of being afraid to get sick.
I'm poor and I have no money so I need to go to work even if I get sick. (This is understandable)
The economy! (This, not so much.)


Seems like testing is still low - San Diego did less than 4,000 tests yesterday - with 3.1% coming back as positive.

That means if I go to work in a building with 200 people it's not crazy to think that at least 6 have it.

stimulus payments to us to encourage us to stay indoors but instead everything is reopening and CNN has stopped having the count of people who have died from COVID on their screen like they had 24/7 for the last three months.

We are in bizarro land.

All this is doing is making people think it is okay to not wear masks anymore even to stores, even when it is mandatory, which will of course make people who are trying to still play by the rules sick.

It is sad.

40. "One other angle I thought of: flattending the curve"
In response to Reply # 35


          

Maybe the ONLY thing they were trying to is to flatten the curve and not to actually keep people from getting sick ever - jsut spread the disease over a longer time.

In my mind we were distancing until there's a vaccine for it - or at least a treatment that helps people avoid getting seriously ill.

But maybe it was only about flattening the curve so as not to overwhelm the hospitals?

Since the hospitals were not overwhelmed AND since they have added more capacity maybe they figure they could increase the number of cases now?

real contact tracing for example

except we don't have that.

hospitals in many areas still don't have the equipment they'll need if things really get bad

doctors are already worn tf out, etc


and we still don't know how long anyone is immune after being exposed, how sure that is, etc.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-11/houston-may-reopen-virus-hospital-at-stadium-as-cases-expand

Houston-area officials are “getting close” to reimposing stay-at-home orders and are prepared to reopen a Covid-19 hospital established but never used at a football stadium as virus cases expand in the fourth-largest U.S. city.

However, any plan to reinstate local lockdowns may hold little legal authority after Governor Greg Abbott issued executive orders to reopen the state that superceded county and municipal directives, Hidalgo’s spokesman, Rafael Lemaitre, said in an email.

of being re-opened on Monday, 6/22/2020. The main and sole reason I care about this is that means I will finally be able to get a haircut.

Anyone here in other locales that opened up went to a barbershop recently? Outside of limiting the number of folks that are allowed inside, I wonder what other measures will be taken to keep folks safe.

My hockey rink just announced they are starting leagues up again in early July. All they are doing is excluding spectators and cleaning the locker rooms in between games.

I really miss playing and so does my fat ass. But I dont know. I think I'm good. Still 20 people out there in close proximity huffing and puffing all over each other. Probably 50% of them are non mask wearing virus-is-hoax people too. Nah.

Like places that are reopening are still requiring 6ft and a mask. How is this even allowed?

At this point with the rona starting to spike again, I'm not comfortable with it. I wouldnt stand next to 15 people without masks in the grocery store, so why would I do it for a sport?

If they have open practice times again where I can get out there but stay in my own space I would probably do that.

case increasing and the curve is getting steeper.

and it's not like we ever did a good job decreasing infections like other industrialized western nations. we just stopped the rise and held things at a high plateau level.

surprising nobody...cases are declining in counties that voted for clinton and increasing in counties that voted for trump.

63. "Texas lifts COVID-19 safety precautions for child care centers "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.kxan.com/investigations/state-lifts-covid-19-safety-precautions-for-child-care-centers/

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Health and Human Services Commission has repealed emergency rules for child care centers that were put in place after coronavirus started spreading across the state.

Up until June 12, child care centers were required to comply with a list of precautions included screening staff by checking temperatures, requiring parents to drop off and pick up outside only, and not serving family-style meals.

The emailed notice now leaves it up to each provider to decide what precautions they want to continue with at their centers.

COVID-19 cases among staff and children at child care centers are on the rise.

There are 436 reported positive cases of COVID-19 at 335 child care operations across Texas, according to Danielle Pestrikoff, a spokesperson with Texas Health and Human Services, 287 are among staff and 149 including children.

“Protecting the health, safety and well-being of people in HHSC-regulated facilities remains our top priority,” said Pestrikoff.

According to reopening guidance to child care providers, minimum class sizes are still recommended, as well as social distancing and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.

“Providers are required to follow state Minimum Standards to ensure the health and safety of children in care,” explained Pestrikoff. “HHSC has provided Reopening Guidance to Child Care Providers to assist operations as they navigate through this process and to ensure they have the information and guidance they need to operate safely and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

The trail head to Mt Woodson (Ramona side) was as packed as I have ever seen it. Parking lots are full in front of shopping centers. During a ride down the coast I'd say 20% of people are masked up.


The only reason we don't have a second wave is that we are still in the first wave.

Twice before her cancer surgery and once after.

She also did an anti-body test the week they became available because she got really ill in late January and was hoping she had got it.

But she's the only one I personally know who has been tested - which is bad.

She's also been negative.

San Diego has a web page:

74. "i cant decide if my city is doing a good job or a bad one"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

when most of the us started to see declining cases my city started exploding (relatively). we went from 10 to 20 cases daily to around 100 at the time. since then we have stayed around 100, some days up to 150 and such but mostly around 100. lately weve started seeing closer and closer to 200 on the regular.

so im thinking as a whole it has been good, we have not yet let it get out of control but i guess i want to see the numbers go back to 20 cases a day. we were able to flatten the curve locally even though abbott decide to force a reopening...maybe?

as a reference we have about 750k people.

76. "What is your child’s age and how many kids were in the class?"
In response to Reply # 75


          

My 2.5 year old is schedule to go back on Monday. The kids age range is 2-3 years old and only 9 kids in the class and two teachers. The two teachers are required to wear mask, the kids will be encouraged but not required to wear a mask.

We are debating to send her back or keep her home. She has been out since March. We also live in San Diego, which is, like most places in California seeing a surge in cases. If we send her back she would be going from 8-3. The classroom very large and it has a large outside play area. They are going to try to keep the kids outside for the most part.

Same age, turning 3 in October. Right now there's only about 10 kids in the class but it can flex up to 17 with enrollment

I pulled her out in March and then we just kind of kept her. We're in San Antonio and shit is looking grim here.

79. "I'm going back into March lockdown mode"
In response to Reply # 75


          

I'm not going out. Not sharing air.

I'll hike only non crowded trails during off peak times.

Think we have to stay like this until theirs a vaccine - so 6-12 more months AT LEAST.

Seems like when people share air they get the virus.

What you’re referring to is an edited news clip of a single sentence from RW trash.
That doesn’t mean it’s rare. Just that it hasn’t been documented yet.
There are so many different ways to parse this that I shouldn’t bother
But what’s the point in spreading half information?

84. "Alright then what *has* been documented?"
In response to Reply # 82


  

          

I find the WHO's clarifying statement confusing at best.

If it's true that *most* people are asymptomatic then how exactly are they accurately determining the transmission characteristics of the virus?

I don’t understand with certainty the statement either
It is confusing. Everything about this is
And our central government is not helping that at all
But the only people that are taking an edited clip of a full presser are right wingers and conspiracy theorist and that should cause a person to pause sharing it.

The fact that they then had to come out and clarify what she meant isn't exactly reassuring either.

89. "White House new official position: We surrender"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/we-need-live-it-white-house-readies-new-message-nation-n1232884

WASHINGTON — After several months of mixed messages on the coronavirus pandemic, the White House is settling on a new one: Learn to live with it.

Administration officials are planning to intensify what they hope is a sharper, and less conflicting, message of the pandemic next week, according to senior administration officials, after struggling to offer clear directives amid a crippling surge in cases across the country. On Thursday, the United States reported more than 55,000 new cases of coronavirus and infection rates were hitting new records in multiple states.

At the crux of the message, officials said, is a recognition by the White House that the virus is not going away any time soon — and will be around through the November election.

As a result, President Donald Trump's top advisers plan to argue, the country must figure out how to press forward despite it. Therapeutic drugs will be showcased as a key component for doing that and the White House will increasingly emphasize the relatively low risk most Americans have of dying from the virus, officials said.


"We have to get back to business. We have to get back to living our lives. Can't do this any longer," Trump said in an interview with Axios last month before his campaign rally in Tulsa, where almost no one socially distanced and few wore masks. "And I do believe it's safe. I do believe it's very safe." A number of Trump’s own campaign staffers and Secret Service agents contracted COVID-19 in Tulsa.

Eager to move forward and reopen the economy amid a recession and a looming presidential election, the White House is now pushing acceptance.

"The virus is with us, but we need to live with it," is how one official said the administration plans to message on the pandemic.

As often is the case with plans crafted for Trump by his aides, the question hanging over this effort is whether he will stick to the script. Trump said this week that he's "all for masks," after months of resisting pressure for him to embrace face coverings. Yet in that same interview with Fox Business on Wednesday, the president said the virus will "just disappear, I hope."

That's not the message senior administration officials said they're preparing, and some of the president's allies have cringed when he's talked in the past about the virus disappearing, only to then see it further spread.

Next week administration officials plan to promote a new study they say shows promising results on therapeutics, the officials said. They wouldn't describe the study in any further detail because, they said, its disclosure would be "market-moving."

Officials also plan to emphasize high survival rates, particularly for Americans who are within certain age groups and don't have underlying conditions. The overall death rate from COVID-19 in the U.S. has been on the decline. More than 130,000 Americans have died of the virus.


One of the officials indicated that coronavirus task force meetings and public briefings will be more frequent — a shift already underway this week. Those meetings and briefings were daily for much of March and April, but they tapered off when Trump pivoted to focusing on the need to reopen the economy. Nearly 20 million Americans are now jobless and the unemployment rate remains in the double digits, despite a record drop in the past month.


Recent public briefings from the task force, so far, have taken place outside the White House complex. Members of the coronavirus task force, led by Pence, have taken questions from reporters five times in five different places, ranging from the Department of Health and Human Services to various Sun Belt coronavirus hot spots.

One official said moving the briefing locations is an attempt to minimize questions from the White House press corps. Another said it was also designed to prevent Trump from being tempted to take over the briefings.

Some of Trump's allies had lamented that he was hurting himself politically by spending sometimes two hours at the podium sparring with reporters and often veering off topic, rather than conveying a specific message about the pandemic.

In recent days, however, Trump personally asked the task force to resume briefings but decided he would not participate in them, according to three White House officials.

I see people on TV saying "It's not reasonable to think you won't get the disease, but you probably won't die so just go ahead and go back to work and problem solved."

These are the same people who said Obama LIED when he said "You can keep your doctor if you like him."

Fuck these people for eternity.

In response to Reply # 93


  

          

There was a part of me that said ... "I could've gotten out of that"
Just the ego of me said that something that could take down animals multitudes my size and muscle ... that I would be able to get out.

There's something magnificently/tragically irrational about being an American.

You ever talk to people that think they'll be fine ... even if they get it ... it alls boils down to ego. Some of them it's about not drinking, some of them it's about being in good shape, some of them think they're just fighters and will tough their way out of it.

I agree with you about the selfishness, but do want to add on the ego of people is just baked into the cake.

Fuck these people's summer.

Hopefully it'd be 1 fucking summer. If they can't make it past 1 summer than what the fuck is wrong with them??

These are the same folks locking people up for 10 years for weed, or a commercial burglary??

Fuck these people - if the disease could stay 1:1 with these idiots I'd still not like to see it - but where the US is right now - fuck them.

You know what I did this weekend? NOTHING. I stayed away from the trails because I knew they'd be insanely packed. If I can do so can they.

During the 4th of July weekend. Hopefully most San Diegans avoided the beach. It appears a lot of people from Arizona and Nevada came into town this weekend. I do feel bad for all the people who work near the beach and decided to or had to work this weekend as they were probably exposed to a lot of people with the virus.

We stayed home this weekend. Didn’t see or BBQ with family or friends. I filled up an inflatable pool for my daughter and put her water table out with some chairs and a pop up tent at home. That was it.

...to "sacrifice" their summer. But because they were selfish morons in late May, they fucked off their summer. And now, because they were morons on July 4th, they've likely fucked off the fall too.

spectrum.

Some are extremely safe and have barely left their homes and then others are having a BBQ like "y'all ain't coming?"

As far as young people gathering its crazy though. I feel like its a little easier to stay at home for people with families or at least significant others that they live with. For younger single people that live alone telling them to stay at home and stare at 4 walls every day and basically be a monk for an indefinite period of time is tough.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

damn near 130,000 in 4 months and that just the preliminary numbers, you know its going to be higher.

How can someone hear that that many have died and think, eh I don't need a mask. 6 feet is bullshit. I can go out.

I live in FL, so many people are not caring. My job doesn't care, they want to go back to business as usual, only mask themed.

I have been out of my house not for work, 6-7 times in the past 4 months. my wife and I are trying our damndest to avoid going out. I never go out with out a mask and I'm constantly washing my hands. When I go to work, I don't go to the restroom, cuz its a shared bathroom per floor and I don't trust people. I've seen go in there and not wash their hands, I don't a pandemic would change that.

If a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?

Unless it affects them personally they don't give a shit.

Lack of imagination and empathy.

Trust me, once they're grandmother gets it they be posting on twitter to "Wear your masks!"

But they wait until that point they are selfish, and stupid. AND STUPID.
