        yeah, it showed up frequently, probably because it makes for good photo ops

          • I went to a Covid-limited wake the other day. In a line a person not in good health offered his hand and I stupidly took it as a reflex action. I don't have it (I hope) but what was I thinking I never should have done that.

              I still stick out my hand in reflex to shake and then take it away. I feel stupid, but the other person usually nods in understanding. If this goes on long enough, that simple greeting may disappear.
              Hugs, I think, are already doomed.

              • I'll extend my hand and make a handshake motion, but I won't extend it far enough to actually shake hands (which would be a stretch in any event because these days I wouldn't be close enough to shake hands).

                • Shaking hands is O.K. If you sanitize it ASAP. Carry a small bottle.

                  • I couldn't imagine shaking hands these days...

                      Man Arrested After Threatening Wichita Mayor Over Face Masks, Police Say

                      Text messages from the man contained a “very descriptive plan of execution,” including locating the mayor, hanging him and turning him into fertilizer, Mayor Brandon Whipple said.

                      • Right at the start of the pandemic hitting us here in Florida (mid-March) I bought a humongous package of bar soap as a precaution against hoarding. I had never used this soap before but there was a really big package so I got it just in case. Over the course of the last 6 months I've had, increasingly some sort of skin issue on my hands. Since it appeared right around the start of the lockdown, I thought it might be the use of anti-bacterial towels which I had never used before so I stopped using them a number of months ago. The skin issue got worse. I thought maybe I caught a case of eczema so I used some Gold Bond cream which I gave a few weeks and it didn't accomplish anything. So yesterday after finally just getting tired of dealing with it, I set up a zoom appt with my doc. We must have spent 30 minutes running through everything. Finally he mentioned soaps and it hit me about the big package of soap that I had never used before might be the cause. I immediately stopped using it and even though it's only been 24 hours, it already seems to be clearing up.

                        But I don't smell as nice.

                          I've been alert enough to avoid that reflex reaction to the occasional dismay of some folks, though occasionally when someone has approached me outside with an extended arm, I've given them a stiff-armed fist bump, and then backed away immediately.

                          • Unfortunately my reflexive action when someone extends their hand is to put my hands up and back away almost as if the person was holding a gun. I can't say it occurs often and mostly with the elderly who may not really grasp the situation.

                                And if there is one thing we can definitively state, it’s that this virus is much, much less likely to spread outdoors than in. For example, in a study of 7,324 Chinese case reports, only two — part of the same transmission event — could be linked to outdoor settings. A database of more than 20,000 cases (including the 7,324 Chinese cases) found 461 that were associated with transmission in completely outdoor environments — predominantly crowded events like markets and rallies. Overall, only 6 percent of all the cases in that database were linked to events that were either totally or partially outdoors. The rest were tied to indoor events. That fact is actually why experts are concerned that fall and winter could lead to an increase in transmission — not because it’s colder, but because people are spending more time inside.

                                Good news for Florida where no-one sits outside at restaurants in the summer but do in the winter.
