This virus is too weird, the way it spreads.

That would be helpful. What concerns me is how if you catch it you can survive but still have reduced lung capacity.

Pick-up may be lower risk, but that still doesn't control all the handling of items etc. before it gets to you. It does keep bodies out of the store and so is better, maybe. If you do go to the store, I'd advise you to have a clear list of what you're going for and don't dilly-dally around.

I think we need to be really careful to avoid getting into the blaming game - that's a long and nasty road. In a few cases it may be a really clear case, but in most cases we're better off trying to educate people and make it easier for them to stay home, etc. Not everyone can do so. If we all stayed home, our lights would go out, our water would quit running, we'd run out of food, and we'd all just sit in our homes and die of one thing or another eventually. We rely on people who are out there doing things. People are going to get exposed and there is no way to avoid it entirely.

I really appreciate you saying this because I feel that it hasn't been said enough. It's easy to tell peoplewhen they should be going to the grocery store, but what happens when I don't find bread or milk? The pickup option is a joke because a lot of it isn't there.

Most of us are going to be exposed to this illness. We are going to have the best of things.

I read a news report that it was the KS at Woodmen and Academy...sorry, don't have the link.

My neighbor is a doctor at Memorial and during our alley-way happy hour (all six-ten feet apart!) he said right now Colorado Springs isn't doing enough social distancing. He's pretty darn concerned.

On Friday, I'm picking up food for a dear friend of mine who was exposed to someone with the virus and he and his fiance are now feeling feverish and overall not well. Because he is immuno-compromised (cancer survivor, has heart problems) they are stocking up. I need a pickup truck to get all the food he ordered! Well, it's likely not that bad, but I certainly can't use my CR-V... he sent me the receipt and my eyes bugged out of my head. But he can't be exposed; hopefully he didn't catch the virus and we need to make sure that he does not catch it in the future, and I'm thankful I'm healthy to be able to help out. I'm frankly very concerned for his health and my anxiety will go down once he's passed the two-week mark.

Did your doctor friend say what Colorado Springs should be doing differently?

They should be closing Hobby Lobby (one right next door to this KS) since I'm sure people go back and forth between those 2 stores.

Hobby Lobby had some lame excuse they need to be open so people can get home school supplies- what a crock.

Is that the only thing? I don't know how many return trips are made to Hobby Lobby or trips in general.

There should be a legality to this ---inform the public FASTER! We do have the dates on TV -
Mar 21-25 , 28th
And one earlier 24th?
I was not there.
I'm amazed 11 people have died on El Paso Cty -4 from that Bridge Tournament.
Oh my.

Don't forget Timberland on Stone north of Fillmore is giving away material for homemade face masks.
Just went, he comes out to greet cars and give some to you enuff for 14 ---After Friday you can pick up more

Oh, I can tell you about Colorado Springs not doing enough.

Until Polis told the entire state to stay at home, people around here were going to places like Helen Hunt Falls in droves, I heard from someone who said trails were "crowded" and there was no way to stay even a few feet from others, let alone six feet.

I wonder if there have been churches defying the order; I know we have some hardcore faithful here.

For the record, the adult alt-lifestyle center that I volunteer for (a surprisingly big community for a place like the Springs) has been closed since early March, the owner would rather risk going out of business, than having people get sick. We've all been dutifully isolating, and transitioned discussion groups and social interaction to video chat platforms.

My fiance works for an "essential" retail-storefront type shipping location and he says that many customers are angry over the new social distancing protocols implemented by the company. He's heard countless iterations of "this is all so overblown" and "the cure will be worse than the disease" and "the government is just trying to control us, you know."

Real nice to say such things to a 61 year old man who works with the public, and who nearly died of pneumonia early last year (of course they wouldn't know, but I also doubt they care.) There is a lot of "the gubmint isn't the boss of me, you can't tell me what to do" mindset in this town.

I would like to know what is going on with the military bases.

Also, I don't need to know if the KS employee is male or female (or anything else) but I'd sure like to know, as I said, if they are a cashier, if they stock shelves, if they only work the customer service counter, bakery, meat, etc. That way I could figure that "I bought a cake, but no meat, and I used self check-out...my exposure risk is...?"
