And the rest of the story:
"This experiment did not include N95 masks and does not reflect the actual transmission of infection from patients with COVID-19 wearing different types of masks. We do not know whether masks shorten the travel distance of droplets during coughing. Further study is needed to recommend whether face masks decrease transmission of virus from asymptomatic individuals or those with suspected COVID-19 who are not coughing."

Note that they are talking about people who are already infected and coughing. You're supposed to stay home if you're sick.

There is none. They are punishing us. For what I don't know.

Just make sure your mask isn't a KN95, as the FDA has just banned 60 of the 85 manufactures of that mask because they're defective.

I don't know how you can say that as we're not doing much contact tracing yet.

At least it's the governors deciding how to handle things and not some national lock down. I do feel bad for California, seems like overkill on some policies. And the fake photos of crowded beaches didn't help public opinion.

I'm not afraid at all tho since I'm the healthiest dude around. The virus wouldn't stand a chance against me.
Ha ha ha ha. (That’s the sound of the virus laughing as they fit you to a ventilator. ). There was a guy on the news who was going bonkers saying the virus was made up joke. Ended up dying from CV19.


Personally I’ll be going out for things I need. Other than that I have no interest in going out to be around a bunch of people. I have been staying home and I cooked more and more. I just made a bunch of chilli tonight. Steaks and baked potatoes Saturday , Shrimp fajitas Sunday. Last week was sausage with red and green peppers with pasta and sun dried tomatoes. Blueberry pork chops and mashed potatoes
Christ if I keep going like this I’ll open my own restaurant.

Nope, staying in until either the virus is gone—or Trump is!
