    And once again slip joint pliers, that study is on transmission while coughing. No coughy, no masky.

    So, how effective is that western ouylaw hankechief during coughing and sneezing as tye bottom of the triangle flaps freely?

    Remember we were told anything is better than nothing

    Damn dude, it's just innocent banter going back and forth between political science and political defiance.

    No need to off him......

    You know I'm not really upset about it as long as my symptoms aren't too bad. I figure we will all most likely be exposed at some point or another, at least I'll be done with it.
    My doctor prescribed me hydroxychloroquine which Ill get tomorrow.
    Still waiting to hear from MN dept of health about contact tracking but that should be tomorrow as well.
    Still doesn't feel real.

    Have your suspicions on how you were infected?

    Hope all goes well, interesting about the hydroxy script. I had thought they moved away from that to remesvedir(sp?) and the newer one I don't recall the name of.

    No idea and I've been over it a dozen times in my mind. That's the most frustrating part is not knowing how I was infected.

    As far as the hydrooxy, my doctor (who happens to be a good friend) believes this is the best treatment, I never asked about alternatives. I do trust him though.

    Glad to see an old face posting again (especially one from MN!). Really sucks you
    Got it but I am glad you are doing well and are in good spirits.

    Can I ask where you’re from and if they traced/found out how you contracted it?

    You could have at least typed it instead of a picture, as soon as my daughter gets in I’ll have her solve it.

    Thanks. I'm from Detroit Lakes. The dept of health hasn't contacted me yet, that should be tomorrow. I have no idea who/ where I contacted it from. I know of no one that has shown symptoms, and thankfully no one i know has shown symptoms since me. My wife and 2 daughters got tested today so we will know by Saturday on those results. I'm praying pretty hard those guys are negative.

    So true or not? It's mutated to be 10x's more contagious then previously. The cause of increase in positives but has stayed the same in illness that occurs. That this latest mutation may effect vaccines.

    We were invited to fire works at the" huggers" campsite. 90 +degrees and no way I would not wear a mask. Hard pass thank you.

    viruses, especially SARs/upper respiatory ones, typically evolve quick. Good news is typically as they become more communicable they also usually become less deadly as the most deadly strains die out faster with their now dead hosts. If the host lives they can spread wider. Give and take with Mother Nature.

    A guy in our group came home where he worked at a Texas plant with positive tests... he got tested last week and was negative.

    Not worried one bit.

    OPEN AMERICA!

    More tests = More cases.

    What happened to all the deaths the media screamed at us the first month and a half.
