  1. My niece has the best theory. She says she treats everything and every person that she comes in contact with as if they/it has the virus. So she disinfects everything that comes into her house and limits all her contact with others to those who live in her house. She had the covid-19 virus back in January when not much was known about it and she was very sick for over eight weeks. She's 50, has no underlying health risk and never, ever got sick with anything before this.

    1. I can understand her approach! I'm assuming the same but not dong the disinfection of objects as there is a very low chance of catching anything from them. This is such a horrible disease though.

    2. I should add that I wash my hands very well after touching new objects or packaging though.

  2. I do the wiping off, low chance or no. I have contact with my son who works and on rare occasions socializes after work with those he works with -in a place not pulic involved and where they check temps but still..) And my sister who occasionaly very carefully goes int stores. I have had a brother and sister in law come over but we distanced/wore masks. He is talking about hving us over for a meal perhaps in july and that would be my first ctact other than clicklist throwing things in my car (I don't even go into stores at all.). We have braved ordering in a couple times.

  3. I've almost gotten used to staying home, staying alone except for walks with dog. I'm doing only OK with the mask wearing but will throw a party the day we can take them off.

  4. Our cases are just steadily increasing. And not just the cases but the hospitalizations. Trying to get a straight answer about our numbers is next to impossible. Have heard that hospitalizations include anyone who went to the hospital to be treated (not just those who were admitted) and that # of cases includes those with antibodies. If that's true, then they should come out and say that!!
    Ugh! Sadly, I am starting to coordinate my masks with my outfits.
