I've trained at least one manager to put her mask on when she sees me coming.

But I am thinking of making some kind of face shield, possibly out of shower curtain plastic.

Its ridiculous. No one in California is wearing the mask AT ALL, forcing me to walk down the street in a 99%+ 3m respirator because i am that set on not getting the crap.

at least i got this as an upgrade from the old MSA mask and its stupid steel cans....

Theyre making fun of me for walking down the street in the thing. Im sure 90% of those guys are about to get corona....

They will, Sorandil, at least a lot of those laughing idiots will. We have the same idiots here too.
Today I walked a narrow, kilometers long bridge to my dearest beloved beach. And guess, besides me there was only a kid amidst the mass of people walking there, who wore a mask. The kids are more disciplined then the stupid adults.

Hah! You actually spelled my name properly! As you may be able to guess, in my fathers dialect there are more Rs...

LA cases are now out of control, its all over the news, and people are not giving a #$%$% about this.

They need to say it like this: Mask it or Casket.

Mask It or Casket sounds like a good slogan.

Also Six Feet Apart of Six Feet Under.

Good news on the shopping front. We are starting to see just slightly more arrivals of disinfectant products. Hand sanitizer is now plentiful, as is liquid hand soap.

Disposable wipes are still in short supply. Trollhubby was in the hospital often enough for me to see where they are all going. Hospitals before households.

Again, disinfectants like Pine-Sol and Mister Clean are good substitutes. Just dilute and fill store-bought spray bottles, and wipe with paper towels.

There are some young fools who think they can't get Covid 19 and have parties.

Then their are the fools that go to hang out in large groups because they are bored and need to go to the south fork of the Yuba River.

Meanwhile the company I work for still can't figure out how to allow us to work from home.

Even my Cardiologist isn't to happy that I have to take the bus to work, (I get a ride home). Masks are required on the bus and there are usually only 2 to 3 people on the bus.

So I do all my shopping as early as possible try to avoid large crowds. I also carry two masks in my purse.

I wish all of our customers were like you, GOlden.

I feel as though I am dealing with children. Masks are available just about everywhere. Thousands of masks, gaiters and face shields are available online. The price of disposable masks has dropped, while cloth masks widely available in stores. Yet people expect me to provide them with masks if they walk in and act like they have no idea what's going on.

Masking in this community is now mandatory. Admitting customers into a business without masks is like allowing minors to buy cigarettes. The news warns of surprise inspections.

On the plus side, manufacturers with licensing rights to cartoon characters and superheroes are now selling children's washable masks in stores. Corporations and charities have long been aware that masks are a great new way to advertise.

Ya know,bandanas,scarves and large headbands can also double as masks if ya can't find one. I'm one of those 'essential workers' even if I didn't qualify for unemployment. At least one good thing has come out of this whole mess..........................it exposed the Atomic Tangerine for the incompetent failure most of us already knew since the '80's and people are getting beyond fed up with the Alt-Right. That pack of Apocalypse-lovin' Evangelicals,overly militarized police,Zero Tolerance,Abstinence Only,science deniers,gerrymandered,voter suppression, pack of hypocrites who'd gladly sell us all out to Russia, then call themselves patriots and us Unamerican. They're all getting exposed and even better,their approval ratings are falling fast.

Thanks, but as I stated at the beginning of this thread:

As for religion, Trollhubby is a retired Evangelical preacher.

Had to take Trollhubby to the ER again, blood pressure dropped dangerously low.  He is home now and improving.

For those of you in areas of the world in which Coronavirus is not yet in decline, as in many American states, here are some things to expect when you or a loved one is taken to the hospital.

Suppose you need to go to the emergency room for something minor, like a sprained ankle.  You weren't hurt on the job and your employer isn't already taking you to the facility that's on their plan.

Consider one of the commercial emergency clinics.  You should already know which one takes your insurance.  If not, look it up now.

Hospital emergency departments operate on triage.  It doesn't matter who came in first.  It matters who needs to be seen fastest.  For example, if you are breathing and conscious, you are going to be placed behind someone who is not.

Use your best judgment as far as calling an ambulance.  When in doubt, call 911.  The rule in our home is if he can walk, we take the car.  You should already have this priority clearly set with your household.

Once you get to the ER, expect greater delays than usual because of Coronavirus precautions.

I already knew that the ER would be busier in August because of outdoor activities like sports, swimming and lawn mowing, and because of heat-related emergencies like heart attacks, sunstroke, food poisoning from picnic food left out too long.  There were about fifteen people, including family members.

But we had to wait a few minutes to get a wheelchair.  Once he was in a wheelchair, we had to wait an hour or two for an emergency department room.

The current hospital policy is one visitor per day.  As with all other health care facilities, someone will take your temperature at the door and only admit you if you are wearing a mask.  You may be given a wristband marking you as that patient's designated visitor.

If you can't wear a mask or a face shield, you will not be able to accompany a patient into an emergency room.  You may need to designate someone else to go with them.

They had beds in the hall for people who did not need to be hooked up to an IV or a monitor right away.  It does make you feel guilty when someone who was ahead of you is in the hallway while your family member is in a room already, but that's how it is nowadays.

Trollhubby got a pediatric room.  This is the second time it's happened.  It just means they have more adults than adult rooms.

It was several more hours before he got a regular hospital room.  Expect long delays here.  You could end up spending the whole night in the ER waiting for a bed to be available.

Trollhubby had surgery and had to wait in the surgical unit for a hospital room.  I was not allowed to visit him in that area, even though I had a mask and a wristband.  I ended up spending several hours in a small waiting room.  It had a TV, a water cooler and a power outlet for my phone and E-book, but there was nothing on which to take a nap.  Remind me to add a sleeping bag to my ER kit.  Smile

Some units of the hospital will be quarantined for people with Coronavirus.  This creates a serious shortage of beds.  The housekeeping staff will be working their butts off getting the remaining rooms ready.

If you are a visitor, read the signs!  Hospitals have uniformed security who are not likely to make exceptions if you walk around without a mask or try to enter certain areas without permission.

Don't assume anything.  Ask for instructions.  Remember that the nursing staff is in charge and that visiting is a privilege.

Thank everyone.  They are juggling extra duties on top of their normal routine.  They are also getting steady complaints from people who don't understand that there is a pandemic going on.

If things ever get back to a semblance of normal, I'm going to definitely go through with the vacation plans I was sorting before things went Jumanji. Taking a train from here to San Diego, then riding the rail from there to Seattle, and u-turning right back around.

That sounds like fun! Trains are my favorite form of public transportation. I think it would be fun to go coast-to-coast across Canada, then across the USA in the opposite direction.
