    I literally cannot watch cable news any longer. My husband is glued to it. So, I told him two hours from 5 to 7, then, he is done.

    I could blissfully spend the Summer as I used to when I was a child, we had a cabin in the mountains, no TV, no radio, no internet connection Back then. We just hiked, fished, read books, collected plant samples. Napped.

    Sad to say, the cabin was sold years ago. Miss those days.

    Article in yesterday's Chronicle of Higher Education on student athletes at Ohio State required to sign a pledge acknowledging the risks of COVID-19, etc.

    We will be seeing more of this for other student populations as well, not only student athletes. Universities across the country are working on liability waivers and behavioral statements that students will have to sign before classes begin.

    Article has a paywall, so posted below. (June 2016, Chronicle of Higher Education)

    "Ohio State University athletes were required to sign a pledge acknowledging the risks of COVID-19 and agreeing to take certain precautions to protect their own health and others’ before returning to campus for voluntary workouts starting on June 8, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

    The pledge, which was published on Twitter, states that the athlete understands “despite all reasonable efforts by the university I can still contract COVID-19” and that while the university is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and health experts to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, “I can never be completely shielded from all risk of illness caused by COVID-19 and other infections.” Ohio State athletes, and their parents if they are under 18 years old, must sign the pledge to use campus facilities and participate in activities, the Dispatch reported.

    Athletes also agreed to be tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine if positive or if exposed to someone else with the virus, report any symptoms to athletics staff, participate “fully and honestly” in contract tracing, physically distance themselves from others, and wear a mask while in public places, according to the pledge. Athletic director Gene Smith told ESPN the pledge was intended to educate athletes on the risks of playing sports, and the university doesn’t refer to it as a legal document.

    “We're hammering our kids on that concept,” Smith said. “Social distancing is the biggest challenge we've been having. They're kids. They want to be close to one another.”

    Indiana University has a similar pledge for its athletes, and some of its language is identical to the Ohio State agreement, ESPN reported."

    Caught up now. Too many posts to thank. I was losing hair as well during meno. It is alarming but it does settle. For me and I am sure for all of you dealing with this. I don't think stress helps and we are living a stressful time.

    Bless you, for your sacrifice.
    It is appreciated.
    It hurts my heart to know that you will be shut in.
    I'm trying to view the isolation as my homebody existence.
    But for me, my age allows me to see that the covid will pass.

    I had a sebaceous cyst for years in the middle of my chest. When it grew to golf ball size I had it removed. Was told it could come back, which it did. Had it excised again never to return.

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/ontario-covid-19-cases-june-17-1.5615476

    Ontario reports 190 new COVID-19 cases, Ford government extends emergency order

    "In a new report, Sickkids says it is critical to "balance the risk of direct infection and transmission" for children with the harms of school closure on their physical and mental health."

    Ontario study shows virus striking growing number of young people

    "The key takeaway from the study .... keep schools and daycare centers closed."

    I watch a lot of Animal Planet, Investigative ID and court shows--- very little cable news: for one thing, they all the same thing over and over and over and over- can't stand it.

    Never thought of that happening. I spray lysol like there is no tomorrow (I managed to get my hands on some from amazon prime). I don't have any reaction to it.
