Our office opened back up today. Working from home was nice and all but I miss the routine and normalcy of going to work in the morning.

Movie theaters should open. Its a very easy place to enforce social distancing rules. Just reduce the amount of tickets you sell per showing and have attendants outside the theaters making sure people have masks on.

If anything, the rallies might force things closed longer, or to re-close, if they cause outbreaks. Should that happen, how does it make sense to open businesses and potentially make things even worse?

The same way opening businesses and making things worse made sense, before the rallies?

Re-opening in sane areas was contingent on meeting goals for reductions in numbers along with other things like testing capability. This is an event that's likely going to cause the opposite of what the goals called for. You don't see an issue?

You living in the same place I am?  Is there any place in the country that's "reopening" that has actually met the goals that they said were necessary, before they went ahead and did what they were intending to do from the start?  

 

Seem to recall that the #1 benchmark that needed to be met, before reopening, was a decline in the number of active infections, despite increased testing.  And seem to recall that the only place in the US where there's been a decrease in infections (I don't know if there's an increase in testing) is NYC.  The only place that has checked box #1 on the checklist

Sure I see an issue.  My point is that the issue existed before these protests.

I can tell you right now. Red States will not be shutting down again. If any states will close, it will be blue states unfortunately.

Oh, agreed.  

 

They decided to open, despite the data.  Data isn't gonna change their minds.

Yep.  They will also not reveal the real amount of people dying.

Just checked my contractor work email.

 

Look, don't ask me to come to work in a suit with a face mask on.  When they say the recommendation on face masks is lifted then we can talk.

 

Just admit it's not safe and don't bring non-essential folks back in until scientist say it is or stop trying.

 

Pushing out Fauci should be a sign to take what government recommends with grain of salt, stop rushing into fake good news to make a buck.

Mosquitoes in Southern California Test Positive for West Nile Virus and St. Louis Encephalitis

 

Los Angeles County's first West Nile virus positive mosquito sample of the season was reported Monday, while vector control in Palm Desert also reported mosquito samples testing positive for WNV and St. Louis Encephalitis.

 

The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District said the mosquitoes were collected from a trap in Hacienda Heights, where populations of adult mosquitoes and tests groups of adult female mosquitoes are routinely monitored for the presence of WNV and other mosquito-borne viruses.

 

"This detection should serve as a reminder that WNV is endemic in Los Angeles County,'' said Susanne Kluh, director of Scientific-Technical Services at GLACVCD. "As temperatures increase, so do mosquito populations and disease risk, which poses a serious public health threat in our communities.''
