Default Anyone else had covid?

Into my second week with it.

I wore a mask EVERYWHERE. Washed my hands. Used hand sanitizer. Never in a group of more than 3 people. None of that prevented me from getting it.

The CDC recently said that 85% of those who have got covid have always or almost always wore masks. If you mention this on Facebook or Twitter, they will ban your account or at the very least give you a big timeout. Pointing out that masks that are not designed to stop something as tiny as this virus, and are mostly ineffective for much of anything for the vast majority of people, is verbotten. At least until November 4th that is, where it will all go *poof* like a dry fart.

Never wore a mask, never avoided people, never wore a glove, and never washed my hands anymore than i use too. Same with my own siblings and children. I live in a county of over 3 million and i and my friends haven't known anyone that got the covid. My son has a home in L.A County of over 10 million people and he doesn't know of anyone that got it. Have people got it yes? Is it so blown out and the numbers inflated, yes?
We will look back at 2020 as seeing how foolish we were too listen to the Govt. and Media. You would think after all these years the little sheep would grow up and realize the biggest lies come from the Govt. and the Media. Pretty pathetic.

They also say that the majority of transmission happens at home. Next thing will be a law mandating masks inside your house - California and NY are probably close to that.

I wore one in Mexico when required, because I was a guest in their country. The entire exercise/protocol was pure nonsense, but again..."guest" so I did abide.

Spent a LOT of time in the pool where they are not required and you can talk to anyone else in the pool and eat and drink and jam to music and anything else that we used to do when OUT of the water.

While I was out, management suggested that all employees walking through the building, wear a mask. I asked about it and it was done solely to appease visitors. I think we only have two "maskers" in the company.

Some people have gotten it. most have not. We were on a streak of ZERO until one new guy came on board. He is really bad about entering personal space. It is suspected that he passed it to three guys that share an office. Most likely that also contributed to the "suggestion" to wear one when walking around. I'm about 50/50. Sometimes I leave my office with one, sometimes without. Everyone ends up with them around their chin anyway so it's doing absolutely NOTHING to protect anyone, but hey, the tow maskers are pacified I guess.

It is truly theater of the absurd. I REALLY wish Trump would have stuck to his guns and also that Chris Christie would have kept his fat pie hole shut.

Same here. Never wore a mask for a single second this entire time. Never avoided people, played all summer in a golf league with dozens of others, rode in carts with them, went to parties, funerals, etc. No masks, no paranoid hand washing all the time (but I am a bit of a germaphobe normally so I do wash my hands consistently anyway.) It could be that I got it late January/early February (was sorta sick for a couple days back then, this just right after travelling through three large airports twice in one week and when Trump issued the China travel ban) but who knows? My sister got it last month (tested positive too) and was a bit under the weather for three or four days.

I know California is in your head but our beaches have been open all year. Our restaurants have been open all year. You can sit in the restaurants as of two month ago. My barber shop has never closed. Keep reading and listening to the media. That's how the sheep get their information.

The wife came down with it the last week of December and was down for a month
Of course no one knew what it was.
Then the same thing went thru our plant in January, again no body knew what it was.
So I believe that I have been exposed to it more than once with no effects
BUT WAIT!
I did cough 3 times once, does that count?

Everything's open? Must be why CA has the third highest unemployment rate in the nation?

It's sure nice they finally allowed you to sit inside restaurants too. I'm glad to see they allowed DisneyLand to open with appropriate safety measures - oh, wait...

You gotta be close to 25,500,000 confirmed cases by now, right?

And yet people can some how afford millions of million dollar homes, the clubs and restaurants are packed out same as the beach at $15 dollars to park. How can they afford to live here? Our home's go into escrow in less than a month, i don't get.


39.460,350 million (2018)

39,937,500 million (2019)

5,427.213 as of October 2020

Grocery store cashiers touching/scanning every item and anywhere you go where cash is transacted, the mail man/UPS/FedEx, gas station pumps - even when using hand gel afterward you’ve probably already touched your wallet, purse, car door and they (virus) can live for what, at least a day? If we’re gonna get it, that suckx but life goes on. Both of my late 50-something friends who caught it said it felt like a non-severe flu bug except for the very noticeable lung congestion.

Thanks Chinese government -

Probably best practice is just staying away from people...
I know the FIL didn't enough ventilator for about a week, although I hope he did as he's never gonna catch the kung flu I was told so why do any precautions

Stepson has it. His best friend had it. Niece had it. Wife's eighty four year old uncle had it. Two people at work (both early sixties) had it. Sister in law's brother and his wife had it.
All survived just fine.
Hope you get better soon, Grey Ghost.

Y'all realize that we are at the tail end of what is just slightly worse than the average flu season, right? The number of peeps who have died this year is within the tiniest of error bars versus the last 10 years. This is a political farce.

Also Creepy Uncle Joe wants to mandate a winter shutdown including mandatory mask wearing while you drive down the interstate. This is a farce. Wake the **** UP!

Stepson says he has had worse sinus infections. Other than the diarrhea.
