    I've grown completely intolerant of the mask debate... It's a real simple situation.

    Multiple people indoors... running their mouths... mostly keeping 6 feet (2 meters) apart:

    All masked... about a 3% infection rate. Mixed masked about a 6% infection rate. No masks about a 17% infection rate.

    Masking doesn't offer significant safety under any scenario. It does offer some reduction in infectious spread when most people wear them. Some is better than none...

    It's the most economical and frankly the only preventative widely available globally until vaccines and treatments are developed.

    Finally... no body gives a rat's ass what you look like in a mask...

    It's a bit disappointing when you realize you don't get ID'd for liquor even when they can only see your eyes...

    Work says if we're 9 feet away from others at our workstation we don't have to wear a mask. I put a tape measure down and made sure that the main aisle was far enough away from where I do most of my work. I'll keep the mask in my pocket though.

    We've still got restrictions on how many people can be in conference rooms and the break room. Most people are going outside on break.

    Stopped at MGM Northfield Park around 2 am this morning. Usual size crowd for that time of night. A lot of the slots have been pulled from the floor, and where there is a row of machines every other machine is out of service. There are a few hand washing stations on the floor as well. Only one restaurant is open, main bar and (of course) the buffet are closed. Masks required for entry.

    Our county saw a jump in the last week... went from 1 active positive to 33. Based on contact tracing data it appears the biggest spread event was linked to a church service similar to the initial outbreak we had back in March.

    County site is down right now but I think we're up to 17 deaths.

    Cleveland's mayor signed an order requiring masks in public spaces. The county executive is expected to do the same this week.

    Governor DeWine seems to have dumped the decisions on the cities. The new acting health director is a lawyer and not a doctor, so no one will feel bad giving him a hard time.

    The UK locked down too late so was one of the worst in Europe. England compare themselves to the US to make themselves feel better and Scotland compares itself to England for the same reason but its all been a shit show. Locking down even a week earlier would have reduced the deaths by 50%. The other major fuck up was clearing the hospitals of elderly patients to free up beds by sticking them in care homes but without testing them so they took it with them which is how half the deaths happened. So those 2 government mistakes may have cost 30 000 lives. Scale that up by population and that is your own government doing fifty 9-11s on it's own population.

    You notice I'm talking past tense which isn't accurate but here in Scotland we are down to a handful of cases and maybe a death a week in a population of 6 million. Scotland has been more cautious coming out of lock down and is just starting to reopen shops and outside bars, The English hit the pubs last weekend so we'll see how that goes, they are still getting pocket outbreaks. Masks are meant to be compulsory on public transport and places where you can't avoid mixing from next week but I don't see many people wearing them here yet maybe 10-20%. I've been pondering that the more expensive the store the more masks you see. I don't think that can be down to the price of masks so that makes you wonder if it's education being older or just having more to lose? Wonder if it's a universal thing across the world or cultural. Could be a good college paper in that for someone...

    Things up here in Cascadia were starting to "open up" gradually, but now they're rethinking it. The Washington State Fair in Puyallup is usually the biggest thing in September. Goes on for most of the month. Not this year....

    Masks are inexpensive, physical distancing is free...

    The real challenge appears to be getting people to make reasonably simple modifications in their behavior to alter the course of this virus outbreak.

    This is not some sort of bullshit scam or global political scheme to alter the power structure in the world. It's just a highly contagious viral pathogen that is making people sick and in measurable cases die...

    It's mind boggling that we have the history and understand the science of what's happening yet can't make minor changes to save ourselves.

    Well... THIS happened at the Fred Meyer a couple miles down the road......



    kiro7.com
    Prosecutors: Man told to ‘put on a mask like the rest of us’ pulled gun on Fred Meyer shopper
    KIRO 7 News Staff


    TUMWATER, Wash. — Prosecutors in Thurston County say a man who was told to put on a mask inside of a Fred Meyer in Tumwater pulled a gun on a shopper Thursday.

    According to prosecutors, the victim told police he was shopping in the produce section when he saw a man not wearing a mask. The victim told police he approached the man and told him to “put a mask on like the rest of us,” prosecutors said.

    According to prosecutors, the man said he thought the COVID-19 pandemic was a hoax, explained he wasn’t going to wear a mask and told the victim to get away from him.

    After arguing, prosecutors said the man pulled his .22-caliber revolver from its holster, pointed it at the victim’s sternum, said “get the f--- away” and threatened to shoot him.

    When police arrived at the store, prosecutors said they told the man they needed to disarm him “for everyone’s safety.”

    The man said “no” and police took him to the ground, prosecutors said.

    According to prosecutors, the man then attempted to grab his own gun during the struggle and told police, “You’re not getting my gun.” The man continued to fight and even grabbed at the vest of one of the officers in an attempt to bite him, prosecutors said.

    Police twice tried to use a stun gun on the man, but the attempts were unsuccessful. Ultimately, prosecutors said it took five officers to take him into custody.

    Prosecutors said police spoke to the man’s mother, who was inside the store, about the arrest. When police told her he pointed a gun at the victim, prosecutors said she replied, “Well he did.”

    Prosecutors are requesting second-degree assault, third-degree assault and resisting arrest charges.

    Two days ago NYS mandated no walk-up bar service and that one could only be served alcohol when ordering food, mainly because to jackoffs in NYC drinking in the streets around clubs while practicing no social distancing whatsoever. I don't like it but can definitely see why they State Health Dept. and Liquor Authority are pissed seeing 50 and 60-something jerkoffs wandering around a local bar like everything was fine..

    On the other hand, The Oxford Group along with Astrazeneca have said their COVID-19 vaccine is doing very well in human trials and provides immunity for at least a year and seems to work on most people. But of course more research is needed:

    Tough economically on bar owners and restaurants... there's no getting around the statistics that show social drinking indoors leads to high community spread rates.
