    I always hated gyms for that very reason. Joined many but quit many after two weeks because of what you described.

    I have big hair that misbehaves, lol. Luckily, my stylist is also a bestie. She’s been in quarantine 6 days now. We had a Harrison county doctor exposed that resumed practice after one week. If he can, my stylist can, right?
    Day 8, she will be in my bathroom, shears in hand.

    I think your county has a lot of cases, the results were not tested by the state lab & are not reported. Moo

    I do not like this. Some folks are non-functional without this. And if a person with an autoimmune disorder discontinues this, it will take a full six weeks for it to kick in when they restart it. When not treated, people with lupus or RA can suffer actual damage to their bodies. I don’t think pharmacy boards should decide if a patient should be treated or not.

    Have you tried setting up a home gym? If you don’t like it, you can use the equipment to hang out of season things, costs, sweaters, hoodies?

    Yeah, this is no small thing...war effort or not, other people still need treatment for their illnesses.

    If we close all drive-thrus, how on earth are the truckers who are bringing our vital supplies- from masks to TP - supposed to eat on the road? Sometimes a McDonalds is all there is for miles and miles.

    It is the testing mainly. Gov Cuomo reminds the people of NY (and everywhere else one is watching him) that NY is testing more people per capita than any other state (even more than China and South Korea) and that's why the numbers are going up. North Jersey where the numbers are high is mainly the same as NYC in being a hot spot.

    Down here in South Jersey, not so many cases either, though I read on my town's FB page where nurses are posting the numbers are much higher because of the amount of people calling in with symptoms, but not yet tested.

    I think truck stops are still open and most convenience stores/gas stations along highways do carry food.

    Ann Romney has MS. I didn't know that...I hope she has not been infected due to this recklessness, or by any other means. ETA - maybe she hasn't been around her husband prior to this. A shame that he likely needs to be quarantined from her now.

    ETA again...saw the response to the question at the press conference re: Sen. Romney's quarantine. Mad and disgusted all over again and putting myself to bed now before I get in trouble.

    @zecats same thing here. When no public info is available where a certain positive patient worked, anyone calling in with symptoms that mentions a specific location can be presumed positive. So I kinda get why they don’t announce “2 From McD’s in blah blah positive”, everyone that wanted a test would claim they were infected from the same venue. But, if a location is not publicized and hundreds of calls come in, the health dept. pretty much knows. No test is warranted though.
