Going Out

Closing Thought–06May20

State after state is opening up their economies again…..against most advice by the way……there is a few things that you need to think about before you dash out into the world again……

You should read this before doing so…..please take the time to read…….

As of the beginning of May 2020, you shouldn’t. Go out in public, that is. Some states are starting to relax their coronavirus lockdowns, whether that’s for religious gatherings or beaches or religious gatherings on beaches. Others remain cautious and stringent. Science is still telling us that the best way to fight the virus is to stay away from one another. Public health officials continue to warn that reopening public venues of any sort is an invitation to contagion. While statistics indicate some slowing of the virus, widespread socializing could easily cause a resurgence of infection. Dr. Lucy Wilson, professor of emergency health services and an infectious disease physician at the University of Maryland, told CNN, “I think it runs the risk of being premature and giving people false hope that we can quickly change into the next phases.”

And just as many civil authorities are implementing only gradual relaxation of the lockdown in careful stages, some scientists are also suggesting that personal reentry into public venues should be one step at a time. If you’re absolutely determined to visit those long-missed nonessential visits — think hair — do just one in a day, to limit contact with potential carriers of the virus. Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and visiting professor at George Washington University Milken Institute of Public Health, told CNN that the more stores you visit on your “I’m free” list, the higher the odds of infection.


Please act wisely….be well….be safe……

  1. Hard as it may seem, I personally think this lockdown should last as long as is feasible. The sooner everyone starts acting like it has all gone away, the faster we will see that second wave of infection.
    Best wishes, Pete.
