    Just turned on the TV and hundreds of church closings scrolling at the bottom.....all say Closed UNTIL further notice.

    This was not showing up after the 6:30 news. That's was really quick.

    Guess folks in SW Virginia have the same idea as your church in 1918.

    I would imagine most churches really don’t want to be responsible for killing their flock. Plus, that’s bad news long-term for donations if a good portion are six feet under.

    We do the morning and evening walk, with mask, about the same time each day. Its great the neighbors come out, we yell from the sidewalk, ponytails are the new style and it just makes my day. Its rained 8.5 in my area since Sunday, so I've really missed my am/pm visits. Not being able to do the "walking visit" really made me depressed, this week.

    Both of mine are, as well. One is a childhood friend, the other my neighbor for the last 40 odd years.

    I just listen and move on.

    Yes, @Simply Southern! Also, they are counting antibody tests in with reg COVID test positives, and I don't think this is appropriate...many who've had antibody tests have already had positive tests. I think our numbers are way off in VA.

    Yes, Hansen's disease is one reason. (Leprosy). Which almost decimated Native islanders.

    Interview with Dr. Tony Fauci today with a writer for the Chronicle of Higher Education on universities and their plans to reopen in the fall. We had a meeting with our department chairs today (by Webex) at our university as we continue to plan for the fall.

    Here is part of Fauci's interview (article link removed because it requires a subscription to open).


    (Interviewer) You’ve said that there are going to be some outbreaks, that it’s not going to be a perfectly pristine environment. Should people be preparing for there to be people getting sick and dying on college campuses this fall?


    (Dr. Fauci) That is extremely unlikely, but there are always outliers that are not the rule but the exception. From what we’ve seen and our experience thus far with this disease, it is very unlikely that a young, healthy college student is going to get into serious trouble to the point of requiring intensive care and dying. But we’ve seen that. It has happened. It happens rarely, but it happens.

    If you were a professor, would you be worried about going back to your campus?

    It depends on where you are, where the campus is, the level of infection within the community. I would take special care, follow the guidelines. There’s always a level of anxiety when you’re dealing with an outbreak that is still alive. It isn’t as if we’ve completely suppressed the virus throughout the country, which always leads to vulnerability, particularly when you’re dealing with a situation where you have a lot of people grouped together as you have on a college campus. The best you can do is try to mitigate that by common sense, not hanging out in groups of many people — try to keep it less than 10. Wear a mask, keep physical distancing, and do the best you can."

    I glad for the "one step forward" today. The previous post, tore my heart out. I was sobbing.

    She has truly kept the faith for Nick and is an inspiration.

    Quoting from post....

    “It’s been another roller coaster but this one goes out to the doctors and nurses at Cedars-Sinai, the power of prayer and the power of energy and support,” she said. “Positivity is, I’m sorry, unsurmountable.”

    My sister is an RN in Maui. All islanders are very protective and most are staying home. They have a sense of loyalty, to not spread the virus.

    Yep. And they remember. There are a lot of other diseases that don't typically strike Hawaiians unless they start eating Western (diabetes).

    But it's deep cultural knowledge to shut islands/cut off social contact in times of plague.

    I keep deleting FB friends who are conspiracy theorists. There seems to be a lot of mentally ill people who don't believe covid exists or they think Bill Gates manufactured it.

    those deaths of 44 and under will increase when students go back and workers return
