Let's hope it works.

Okay, checked this one out.  One of the baseball teams has several members testing positive.  The expert talking about it said 6 feet isn't the magic number.  When you're working out a cough can go up to 23 feet.

Tested negative on day 11 post exposure.  Never had symptoms. No one in my house did either.

Conclusion- Masks work.

Great news man, 11 days out i would say you are definitely safe. I believe it takes 2-10 on average to show symptoms. I wish more people would be like you with the masks. It just boggles my mind how inconsiderate people are about it. If we all just wore them and social distanced for a few months we probably could get back to almost normal until we get a vaccine or effective treatment.

Good to hear.

My conclusion would be mask might have worked.   hihi  I'm feeling like I need more protection than that.

I'm at this medical place, mask on.  They open the door and call my name.  Walk up and before I know it masked person had a gun to my forehead.  Okay, it was temperature taker and she was a nurse but she was holding it like a gun and it looked like a gun.  A little heads up would have been nice.  hihi

It's strange this isn't the norm at every doctor or hospital. I saw my pcp on Monday, masks we mandatory but no temp check. My best friend had a Dr appt at an actual hospital yesterday same thing, masks but no temp check. You'd think at a hospital they'd be extra careful.

Somebody brought up a good point today.  Your immune system is use to being out among people and has it's defences up against certain things like the common cold and flues.  It's use to fighting off certain stuff.  By staying away from people the defense system relaxes against those things and there is concern when you get exposed to these things again the defense system will be out of shape, so to speak, and you will catch these things easier.

My mailman was out for a month with covid.  He lost 45 pounds and he wasn't over weight.  Never ended up in the hospital.  No clue how he got it.

Contrast that with my place of employment...you can't walk into the place without a temp check and a mask.  I can't walk into my office...a block off the main medical campus...without the same thing.  We can't use elevator buttons (its all app controlled via your phone)...door handles have temporary, anti bacterial, wrappings on them (changed every 2 hours), and paper towel dispensors next to them so you can pull one out, open the door, and drop it in the waste basket on the other side.

And there are purell dispensers EVERYWHERE.

Combine that with the fact we have mostly moved to a work from home model.  I was already 80% work from home before this started.  I'm now in once a month for meetings.  They've moved the rest of the department...NONE of which was work from home, to the same schedule.  We go in for meetings and to train new employees, basically.

This model isn't going to change post COVID, either.  This is our new normal.  Productivity has gone up and the company is saving on overhead.  This is true of a LOT of the ancillary departments who don't provide direct patient care.  I think MANY companies are probably going to go this route......

As bad as covid has been i think this will be one of the good things to come from it. A lot of this was already starting but covid accelerated it.

I think people are a lot happier with the work from home.  Not as many folks on the road.  Get rid of some of those office building.  Keep them from eating out at lunch.  Could be a good thing for society in the long run.

You would think parents would want kids in school so they can work but over half of them are electing to keep the kids home when give a choice between that or school attendance.  It certainly reduces your kid being bullied at school or harmed.  May be a new norm coming for education too.

We are keeping our 2 home.  It would be a LOT harder of a decision, but my youngest has reactive airway disease that leads to ARDS when she gets a bad cold.  We're not risking symptomatic COVID with her.  So she stays home and so does her brother.  At least for now.  They're older, though, so there's not A LOT that I need to do for them in terms of riding herd on their education.  Make sure they do their homework and that my son hits the freaking submit button.

Our schools are doing a hybrid model, and, were there no health issues in the house, I'd probably lean toward sending them.

Having said that: Schools are petri dishes and kids...even older kids...can't keep their freaking hands off each other.  My oldest graduated this past spring...outdoor "drive in" graduation in their parking lot, masked to get their diploma and lines with 6 feet of distance between kids. 

As soon as we arrived, these kids (NOT my kid) were out of the cars, many without masks, all over each other.  Snuggling up to take pictures, hugging their friends who they hadn't seen, well within each others personal spaces.  They literally had to send out faculty to roam the parking lot and break the kids up.

I suspect that's going to be every day at school...and our low numbers in CT are going to balloon once school is back in session.  We'll see.....
