Another reason I try to be extra careful is because my wife works at a nursing home and I sure as heck wouldn't want to be indirectly responsible for an outbreak there.

It all matters.  A little effort can go a long way.

We sure are  blessed to have you guys on here that know so much more than the scientists that have devoted their lives studying pandemics. After all science doesn't matter any more! I know this is the first place I'll turn to when I need medical advice. :confused:

Which scientists?  The ones that told us in Feb that it wasn't a problem.  The ones that told us masks don't prevent infections in March?     The ones that predicted two million deaths in US?   The ones that didn't tell Cuomo to stop sending covid patients to nursing homes?     The ones that said hydroxychloroquine worked?  Or the ones that said it doesn't?   The ones that said to wash hands very frequently and disinfect your canned goods from the grocery?   

The truth is that the scientists knew next to nothing about this virus or how it actually spreads, or how to treat those who get it.   They seem to be making some progress but knowledge is very tenuous at this point.   They don't even know how long you are safe after you recover. 

So I avoid being around strangers as much as possible, and wear a mask even though it probably doesn't do much for me.

Thanks.  And I am praying for all those folks trying to make a vaccine and develop better ways of caring for those who do catch it.

Exactly, that's why I come here for all my guidance! Maybe Trump will see the light and appoint dellwood beamer to the Corona task force so the whole country can be safer. Meanwhile I will sleep better knowing I have access to your genius right here.

You seem to be angry about what I wrote.   Which parts offended you?  What do you disagree with? What did I say that is untrue?   Have you been following the scientific literature?   

Tell you what.. Tell me how much exposure, or dose of virus, is necessary to get infected.   

And it is well known that the type of masks people are being told to wear don't do much to protect the person wearing them.  They have a larger effect on preventing a contagious person wearing one from transmitting the disease.   

So, come on Roony.  You want to trade facts and evidence?    Or just make sarcastic cracks?

Absolutely the masks protect others, do you think that is bad. Do you think things like stop signs and speed limits are only to protect the driver?

Where did I say masks are bad?  I wear a mask in public.   I did call out the inconsistent messaging in the past by the "scientists". 
 
But stop signs  and speed limits protect me from others as well as others from me.  Very poor analogy.   Care to elaborate about the stuff I actually talked about?

My take on the masks is that they were originally discouraged because they didn't want people hoarding them like the idiots did with toilet paper and like you said they dont protect the wearer. A lot of the other things are due to this being a novel virus and everything about it is not known like with viruses that have been around for a long time.
Yes, there have been mistakes but I still value the opinions of those who have expertise in the subject than the armchair quarterbacks on here and other forums.

So, ad I posted in the good morning thread, had lunch at the bluffs. My observation was this. Of the dozen or so people that came and went, noone had a mask.

As far as the food... Still really good. :happy1: there was nothing on the tables, napkin holders or salt and pepper shakers. They came in as well as the KATCHUP in these little plastic containers you would get ranch dressing or extra sauces in. Plastic forks and food came in a basket not on a plate.

The gal said things are not back to normal and it's circulating in alot of bars. From people she had talked to symptoms range from little to nothing to getting hit in the chest with a bat.

At the Ia governor's news conference yday the talk was about scaling back on the re-opening with the major objective being not overwhelming the hospitals & getting the kids back to the classroom this fall. No action was takin but nothing was said to be off the table either.

so........driving into work this morning listening to the morning show on KQRS, boobers favorite DJ  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: tommy barnard and Brian Zepp where talking about the COVID/mask thing and brought up these points i thought where spot on.

senator John Marty, a D is introducing a bill to make masks mandatory in all public places.  :doah: :tut: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

why is this mask thing so political by party...the D's wear masks and push this and the R's dont.  :shocked: :scratch: :doah: :doah: :confused:

why arent there mandated masks requirements for the influenza strains???????

40,000 people die a year from second hand smoke, other then the gubberment gets a ton of money from tobbacco tax  why dont they do something about that?? :doofus: and why isnt smoking in a car with kids in it not considered child abuse or neglect???

supposedly 300,000 people die each year of obesity related health issues.......... why arent they doing something about that?????

They are separate problems, Smurfy.   Second hand smoke, they banned smoking in most places..

Raised price of cigs to like 10 bucks.

But seems like the fact is that wearing masks while inside places like stores would significantly reduce transmission of the virus.
