    Here the amount of testing to the # of people has been very low So really who knows who's carrying it. The worst and I feel bad for them is Erie county NY with close to 500 death..480 something the last I looked. Steuben county had a huge jump then leveled at 40+ deaths...due to a nursing home situation. Our county 7 deaths. though many many people in our area will travel to Monroe county hospitals where they have about 200 deaths. I do not know if they record by hospital or county of residence. Common sense would dictate, though I stopped hoping for that years ago.

    I wear one sometimes if I go to the grocery store. I have been out to eat, gas stations and the gym and I haven’t worn one.

    I’m not certain it’s doing much good since the sterile technique of your average citizen is a joke. Being somewhat germaphobic at baseline I don’t mind wearing it. Wearing one on an airplane will be a pleasure.

    In the city limits, yes, wearing a mask, if I'm inside or around others (non family). Gas station, I grab a paper towel to pump gas and sanitizer after.

    Out in the country, at a park or away from others I go Au natural... Or rather maskless.

    No Karen's or others commenting.

    My wife bought me a mask... multi cam.

    I wear a face shield at work. In the stores I wear a mask only to comply and make people more comfortable, but if I forget my mask I’m going in anyway. The only way I see a mask helping is with cough and sneezing. I’m pretty good about doing that into my shoulder. I see both sides of the aisle. It is overhyped and that’s coming from someone who has nearly lost a friend to it. The odds are so low. Everyone will eventually be exposed so we are just biding time. I’ll never have bill gates needle jammed in my arm though, that’s for sure. This thing is like a bully. Can’t hide from it forever. Eventually have to get it over with and get punched in the nose or come out swinging and it turns out ok. Not saying we shouldn’t use a little common sense. Wash hands good, sanitizer every so often, avoid spitting in each other’s faces. But to bring the world to its knees isn’t the answer. I’m just not sure what is

    Is that just for colleges? Haven't seen anything here other than the governor told ppl to expect starting the fall with online classes. Was week or so ago tho so idk what the plan is now.

    We are in a holding pattern here. VA college presidents want the kids back...Northam is grandstanding right now acting like he is the grand master of Virginia. The good old boys here in VA are only gonna tolerate this so much longer.

    The fight and effort of underground basketball did not work. A place I dearly love and have spent many hours in Ohio(Coaching/Reffing/watching my son) is closing their doors. Simply put the fight to get the doors open is just too much for the owners, with the restrictions of capacity they can not keep the lights on. Sad day indeed
