If you are crazy enough to want to eat out, read this.

We are doing carry-out once a week. Only where they take CC number over phone and bring to car

Bring it home, disinfect the containers, microwave food for 20 seconds, put on plates, wash hands and then eat!

No way in Hell will we go into restaurant
Neither would we.....,nor do we miss it..

I do go food shopping once a week, mask on...or go to stores where they disininfect carts in front of you......always pack groceries myself in washable bags

It is also a new disease, and time was needed to gain knowledge, increase testing, and improve treatments.

Any places that use low-wage employees to serve will be a risk because they will come into work sick and spread disease. I think the biggest risk will be salons and barbers. The virus stays airborne for up to 3 hours while the ventilation system recirculates stagnant air. Most of the people who were infected in the restaurant didn't test positive for 5 to 14 days.
My dear hairdresser came to our home a few months ago....we sat outside, no shampoo or coloring..

She did hubby, a friend and me....I paid her well! Am beginning to like my semi grey hair!

My wife and I have eaten in restaurants 3 times since last weekend, when Ohio restaurants could open up there dining rooms. Zero issues. Everything was spotless, not many diners inside for the most part. I feel more safe in restaurants now, then at a Walmart or grocery store, that’s for sure.

It's never going back to like before until there's a cure.

Stay home if you don't want to take the risks.

There will always be a risk of getting something. There always has been a risk of getting something, and people have always taken that risk.

Catching a cold or flu is a bit different that this has shown to be, with some dying soon afterward.

Now that there has been rioting and looting (and may continue) over something else, there will be a lot of cleaning up to do with some establishments closed - again - so, talk about not being safe to be out, yet.

We went out to dinner last night and had a wonderful time. We are not in an area where there is looting or rioting, so that is fortunately irrelevant.

Of course we would not have gone out into a war zone.

^ This It is those who are not following those guidelines whom are more often the ones contracting the virus. Wearing a mask helps with not touching your face helping to prevent absorption of droplets that contain the virus

I urge people to listen to the following video in it's entirety. Contains detailed info for living and interacting with life in and around the virus. Explains how one can still even live in the home with family who have the disease and at what stage it is important to go to the hospital and not waste important time of medical facilities. This isn't info from a quack doctor, this a doctor at the front lines, and it shows on his face how hard he's been at work he works at Cornell https://weill.cornell.edu/

Not a slick or short video, but one worth watching all the way through if you really want to be informed and prepared to keep yourself and your loved ones.

That's interesting, in our state, they said they would take licenses away if hairdressers did home visits. Was that allowed in California?
