We are a couple up in yrs, caretakers of an even older relative at home under Vitas Home Care (She's 95 yrs Old) . We have been doinn' this for 3 yrs, so the confinement has been with us for quite a long time, we have time to do things close by home 3 hrs on Mondays and Wednesdays and 4hr on Fridays, as Medicare/Medicaid sends us a companion to stay home for us those days.

Last Friday the 22nd was the first time since March 5 that we were able to go out and have lunch at a nearby Pub favorite of ours...We were thrilled..inside eating..quiet and sublime and seen old friends in the Owners, employees and other customers we recognized it was like Christmas Day when we were Kids.

Not a problem for us, next Friday, weather permitting it will be The Outback, I have a $50.00 Gift Card since also early March, and now that their inside dining is working..Off we will go.

Gotta venture Out, carefully but certain that if you follow rules nothing will happen to us, and you people for that matter.

Greetings

Remember the church choir practice when someone spread covid? 52 got sick. TWO DIED.
No we do not know that: no one really knows much of anything at this time. It is just an educated guess. Even the CDC, Dr Binx and others are recommending spending time outside, whether reading, gardening or eating. The only rules that still apply are: use common sense. Common sense does not say, lock yourself up for maybe a year or more.

We're going to wait a little while and let the restaurants work all the kinks out of the new rules and get the hang of it before we think about eating out.

The only way I would go out to eat would be on the deck at one of the bayside restaurants, certainly not indoors. Even then, I probably wouldn't actually do it because I wouldn't want to walk through the restaurant to get outside on the deck.



Drive-up food places, sure. We support local businesses that way.

I know I'd also enjoy eating outside on the deck of a bayside restaurant, where it's not as hot and humid as it is in our neck of the woods.


I'm sure your local restaurant owners/staff are happy to see you, whether it's an inside/outside dine-in, or it's take out. You're supporting them either way.

We rarely go to restaurants. I cook every night or every other night.

That's a dangerous way to look at this. The exposure needs to come from an effective vaccine, not playing games of chance with one's own and others' health and life.

The virus is still out there.

People are still getting sick and dying!

There is no way in Hell that I am going to start mixing with people until a vaccine, or cure, is developed

You'd have to be nuts to mix in public at this time, it's too early in the progression of this disease
