    Jim I’m right with you being high risk and I will turn an old 60 next month. I lost a dear friend to this who was trying her best to keep from getting it. Sadly she worked in an environment where she was in close contact with co workers. Sorry if I sounded political earlier...

    I have two granddaughters and a sister that are RNs that and work in a Chinese Virus environment...Granddaughters in Utah and sister here locally...I am concerned every day any of them go to work, but they dress appropriately when at work and after almost a year they have had no issues in spite of the large numbers of patient contact. The same thing I have noticed with the Walmart employees...chatting with a few of them I keep being told that they have practically a Zero infection rate...inspite of being in relatively close contact with A LOT of shoppers every day...I wear a mask, not because I feel it reduces my chances of infection, but just to keep others from finger pointing and creating issues...hate breathing my own "used" air already partially oxygen depleted...Rand Paul is a Doctor and has his own views on the mask thing....

    All I know for certain is the Chinese are a shrewd lot, testing their "equipment" before using their "big" stuff....destroying our Country financially and socially...

    I don't want to admit it but I feel down some times.

    I'm upbeat most of the time. But a year of this grinds on you...

    I'm with you there Mike. I Too have challenges in the winter time with S A D D. Top it with this lock down and all the uncertainty of when and if life will get back to any kind of normal. Well, I have a lot of internal conversations to try to keep my head in the right place. Even with the possibility of a vaccine ( which like the flue shot I will probably oppt out) life is going to be a lot different going forward.

    Steve, I understand completely. My entire family in Ohio, except my older brother who uses a mask and stays in a bubble, have now had COVID. That would be close to 30 people and it's because they did not wear a mask or quarantine. Of that we have lost two of the older members.

    The good news, if there is any, seems to be folks with my close DNA seem to get/carry only the milder version. The two we have lost were in laws and not blood related.

    I will get out and about once this cold weather breaks but I still won't socialize with people. I will get my camper out and do overnights or 2 nights as I can still limit my contact with people by doing that. I mean, I never heard of anyone catching covid at 70mph on a motorcycle...have you

    To be honest, I'm not exactly sure how people are catching Covid-19. Is it from something they inhaled and/or something they touched? I assume when you are traveling via motorcycle you need to stop for gas at some time. Maybe use the restroom. Maybe stop in the gas station convenience store. You need to pay for that gas and touch the pumps. Do you think those pumps are being disinfected? Unless you are living on a farm, people are going to be in contact with someone. It's up to each of us to decide what precautions to take and what risks are acceptable.

    The American ignorance of science is pretty depressing. Flat earthers, antivaccers, free energy, conspirators behind every tree, quackery medical cures, etc., etc. Then politicize science to make things even worse.

    COVID is just a virus to be dealt with as any virus. Yea each one behaves differently in humans. It's not going to be the last as humans increasingly encroach in new areas where pathogens have lived for thousands of years but haven't come into contact with humans.

    If you don't want to inhale virus particles from an infected person stay away from them, block the transfer of virus particles with a mask (the easiest) or a shield, or space suit, or what ever. If masks are bad then why do surgeons wear them. I wonder if anyone has ever told their surgeon right before surgery to keep their mask off? The virus doesn't appear to remain active on most surfaces for very long if at all but I'm still cautious.

    Fortunately being retired during all the lockdowns, etc haven't directly affected us that much. Maggie rarely goes anywhere where large groups of people are since she is considered high risk due to her health issues. I've been to one to shop, etc.

    Hopefully more campgrounds will be open come the camping season. We took our travel trailer out a couple times this last season. Camped on the motorcycle a few times, hope to get out more into the backwoods this year. And just be careful around people.

    Meach
    I told them at my Dr. office they should make a commercial where a person is going into
    surgery and a Dr. come over and looks down and tells the person. "Hey do you think I need
    to where this mask? You could get an infection and die, but I well take it off if you want me too." LOL

    I found a key type tool, at Walmart, that you use to push the buttons, on gas pumps, ATM's. I do use Anti-bac
    wipes when I get back to the car. I wear a mask, all times. When I go in a cafe to get food to go,
    room full of no-mask people look at me like I am an Alien.

    My son has been to my home once, this year, he wore a mask. We went to his house for an hour. Masked and
    opened presents. Friday.
    Life sucks and at 73 I hope to have a few more years. Our plan it to keep to ourselves.
    Wife and I will go fishing every day we can when spring, summer comes. That's our plan.
    I might just buy a new Pontoon, and finance it for 72 months. LOL LOL LOL
