    Zoom Thanksgiving can be fun. Our family just did a dry run so we could be sure everyone is capable of joining on Thursday. It basically went the same way in-person goes. I was surprised and now I'm wide awake and in a good mood because I just spent time with my family.

    Really, it was so much like a get-together at my house. It started with my sister and me talking about my dad. SIL shows up, listens for a couple of minutes, then jumps in convo. Interrupted by one of the boys, sidetracked to a new convo. Brother shows up goofing off immediately and everyone's like "Hey!" and all focus shifts to him. And on and on as people arrive.

    It was really cool and I don't have a bunch of dishes to do and I didn't screw up my back cleaning like a mad woman in preparation for company.

    Within the community, I have no idea why we would be doing much better with testing supplies vs Ohio. I just checked to see when the next appointment is for rapid testing and found one for 3am at one of the 24/7 clinics and a 2pm at one of the regular hours clinics. I didn’t check all of them. At the peak of cases in July/August, it might take a couple of hours of checking the website to get a time slot. I expect that will continue to get worse as numbers rise.

    I went on the CVS site and there were no appointments for tomorrow. Several available at a location 25 miles away on Tuesday.
    The closest CVS offering rapid testing was 50 miles away with the first appointment available at 11am in Tuesday.
    I don’t think there is a 24/7 site in the county, maybe at the ER. The community health locations are appointment only and you have to call and be prescreened. No online signup.

    A couple more politicians with the virus ... 9 Congress reps in just 10 days now.


    Two Republican House members announced Sunday that they tested positive for Covid-19, raising the number of Congressional representatives who have contracted the virus over the last 10 days to nine.

    Rep. Joe Courtney of Connecticut and Rep. Bryan Steil of Wisconsin said their positive results were returned Sunday.

    Courtney said he’d been exposed to someone who tested positive for the virus last week. After an initial test produced negative results, he began experiencing mild symptoms and took a second test that was positive.

    Steil said he started feeling sick last week after working in Washington D.C.

    “This experience reinforces my strong belief that right now, we need to be doing our part to help our communities by listening to the experts at the CDC — we’ve got to remain vigilant about wearing masks, social distancing, and the basic essentials like washing our hands frequently,” Courtney said.

    So, my state's cluster of covid cases .... it has been sitting at 26 cases for days. Today #27 popped up among the home-quarantined thousands, having tested negative twice before.

    And this is why we quarantine for 14 days when we are a contact of a covid positive person. Because it can take that long for the virus to show itself, and if #27 wasn't in quarantine they could have spread the virus further.

    In this situation, we have the distinct advantage of starting with zero cases, and have quarantined all potentials - so we can see exactly where the new cases come from and how long they take to arise.


    South Australian Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier said the woman had been in quarantine since last Monday and had returned two negative tests before testing positive this morning.

    Professor Spurrier said it took eight days for the virus to incubate in the woman's body.

    "It absolutely tells us that anybody who has been asked to be in quarantine needs to be in quarantine for the whole 14 days because there are people who have that very much longer incubation period," she said.
    "Certainly getting out to day eight is a long period of time, but obviously the 14 days is of major importance for everybody who has been asked to be in quarantine."

    COVID-19: Gyms and non-essential retail to reopen in lead-up to Christmas

    The prime minister is publishing a COVID Winter Plan, which will include tough new restrictions in England in December but a break of up to five days for Christmas.

    • Non-essential retail will be allowed to open, in a boost for Christmas shoppers - and the high street
    • Gyms will be allowed to open too, so the nation doesn't pile on the pounds in the run-up to Christmas
    • The 10pm curfew for pubs and restaurants, which critics claim did more harm than good, will be scrapped
    • And a mass testing programme is to be launched in Tier 3 areas, using the Army, like the recent pilot programme in Liverpool

    China has found that several cargo handlers at Shanghai airport have contracted the virus. So they have been testing all of the staff at the airport. They locked down the airport, and cancelled all flights.

    I agree that it is concerning if the virus can travel on cargo. It makes me think of the outbreak in NZ a little while ago.


    Numerous videos posted online show the underground parking lot at Pudong Airport filled with long queues of people waiting to be tested.
    In total there have been at least seven confirmed domestic COVID-19 cases among workers at the Pudong Airport. The risk of virus being imported through international logistics is of great concern to health authorities.

    And Loeffler in the State of Georgia has had a confusing mish mash of test results after she did a Rally with the VP and the governor on Friday. Friday negative for the quick test, positive for the PCR Friday night. Restest Saturday "inconclusive", then another retest on that test said negative (this report says retest was PCR, but her office presser didn't say which kind).

    Loeffler tests negative for coronavirus, will continue to self-isolate
