    Our local county numbers are getting better despite proximity to NYC. The virus confirmed hospitalization history graph is especially encouraging. Now that businesses are opening my interest is whether the numbers decrease or start increasing again. Hoping for the best but planning for the worse.

    IMO this has as much to do with all the films and production being delayed and movie theaters being shut down as the virus itself. I imagine the deadline will be extended for eligibility. I believe it is normally Christmas Day or near to it.

    Well yes, no shop is worth queuing hours for. I can't wait to go shopping again but will leave it a few more weeks I think!

    But... egg cups?!? Who on earth desperately needed those in the last 3 months?

    A salon owner was having those made for her clients. An article was posted on it a while back. I remember being surprised that they stayed on.

    I'm thinking about purchasing a 3M Half-Face Respirator. By any chance is someone familiar with these? Would they be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time?

    My understanding is that it is very effective at preventing you from inhaling particles, but much less so in terms of you transmitting them.

    Get yourself a couple of cloth masks with filter pockets and nose wire and buy a roll of blue shop towels for filters just so you’ve got something if what you want isn’t available at some point. Some weeks back I posted a link or two in the mask making thread to the kind of masks I would buy.

    I made a call to someone I know has worn them for several hrs. at a time. Light not heavy. They do fit really snug, as they should. Doesn't find them a bother. Let us know how you make out.

    CVS and Walgreens has some masks around here. I had to order from three different companies on Amazon before I finally got a box. Took a month.

    I have been wearing masks and full transparent face shields. They are comfortable, easy to see through and provide a lot of safety.

    Beijing coronavirus outbreak: what can we learn from China’s response to feared ‘second wave’?

    ...
    Beijing has entered a second lockdown after almost 80 new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in the city following more than 50 days without a new infection.
    “The risk of the epidemic spreading is very high, so we should take resolute and decisive measures,” a city government spokesperson said on Monday, after announcing that the Chinese capital has entered “an extraordinary period”.
    ...
    The chief epidemiologist of China’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Zeng Guang, has told state media that the coronavirus strain found in Beijing is not the same as that circulating in the rest of the country.
    “It is found that the virus came from Europe and the preliminary assessment is that the virus came from overseas. But it is not clear how the virus came into this market,” added Yang Peng, an epidemiologist with the Beijing city government.
    Around 10,000 staff at the Xinfadi market are being tested for Covid-19, and lockdown restrictions were imposed in 11 surrounding neighbourhoods following the closure of the site on Friday.

    On Monday, another ten neighbourhoods around the market were restricted, according to state media. No visitors or deliveries are allowed in the affected communities, but residents can come and go.
    The number of reported new cases “may not sound huge at the moment”, says the BBC’s China correspondent Stephen McDonnell, but “after more than 50 days with no cases at all, the authorities [in Beijing] are worried this could easily turn into a full-blown coronavirus second wave in the city”.

    I'm jealous of those that need hair cuts. I need color terribly bad. I'm going to turn 46 in October. I have a lot of gray around my hairline in the front. No idea about the back. Scared to look.

    However, I'll take all the gray hairs that I can because my hair has started thinning at a rapid pace. I don't notice it falling out daily or anything but holy crap I feel like I'm balding.

    I realize this is TMI but I'm also in pre menopause ...won't go into details, but I'm sure. So I think that along with the tremendous anxiety I'm feeling is the reason for my hair loss.

    I started taking AVG pro. I have no idea if it will do anything .

    Might be wig shopping soon :(

    Our local TJ Maxx (just recently reopened), had a line of approximately 20 people long, shoulder to shoulder, 50% masked, waiting to get in.
    I miss shopping, but there is no way that I would risk getting Covid to do so.

    I might get some cloth ones from Old Navy as someone suggested but not sure if they have a filter pocket? I don't sew so I haven't read in the mask making thread.

    I just ordered some more surgical ones from Amazon that are supposedly already in Canadian warehouses so no long waiting period. I paid more but it will be worth it if they get here fast and I don't have to continue to worry that I'll run out of them. I shared my last box with family members and will share this one too. I got a refund on the ones that are lost in transit.

    I lost all my hair in chemo and it's still growing back in so I don't need a haircut. I do need a colour though as it came back in with more gray strands. Menopause is a complete *****. I've read on these threads quite a few people mentioning they've been losing hair. It must have a connection to stress.

    Hubby and I wear disposable gloves when we have to go to the store, etc. We were getting low, and found some at our local Fleet Farm, in the automotive section.
