    Masks?

    We had a guy come into Lezzers that would not put a mask on as he said he has a medical condition that excludes him from having to wear one. Have also heard of some at Lowes without them on. They do not need to disclose what the condition is.

    Why is this vaccine going to be so much quicker than all the rest? There are many other viruses that still don't have vaccines years--decades in some cases--down the road. What about the testing protocols? Who is going to be willing to have this injected into their body without proper research and testing? We all need to build our immunity. Our bodies CAN fight his stuff off on our own if we care for the body properly with proper nutrition. We will never fight off the next thing down the road if we hide from every germ. Good Lord, most of us likely ate dirt as kids. Or accidentally drank nasty lake water that likely had oodles of disgusting things floating in it. We didn't die--yet. We are tougher because of it. Please don't pin your hopes on a vaccine. Eat right. Exercise. Get some sun. Take care of your mind. Stop letting them instill fear in you. Don't let them jab a needle in you just because they say so. Doctors and scientists aren't God. Stop letting them pretend they are.

    Masks?

    I don't like wearing them either. I can't breathe properly wearing it. Call it claustrophobia or whatever. I'm doing it. But I HATE it.

    I find is kind of sad you need to consider this a 'scary adventure'. it really shouldn't disrupt your life that much. Can't even sit down with a friend to have a cone? Bit extreme for me. i do take the basic precautions seriously, but I don't consider myself an extremist. i wear my mask when out and about, sanitize the hands frequently, avoid touching things I really don't need to, and keep distance when possible. Then again, I have to work daily with the public and, over the course of a week, a dozen or more different co-workers. We dutifully wear our masks and wash/sanitize hands frequently, but we also sit down in groups of 3 or 4 to have lunch...sans masks and directly beside each other!! Most times, we are working shoulder to shoulder. When dealing with the public, you really can't work effectively 6 or more feet away, we still get 'up close and personal' with them. As far as co-workers, you have to kind of trust they are doing the correct things to keep themselves and their families safe and healthy, but you still don't know what their families are doing. The public- strangers-, you kind of have to gauge how well they are taking care of themselves. At some point, you need to trust everyone, or at least most people, are doing the right thing as much as possible. Gloves and masks don't offer 100% protection and unless you want to live in a plastic bubble, nothing will ever be 100%. So, as far as friends go, if you trust they are doing the correct as possible things to keep healthy, then sitting down and having an ice cream or burger with them really shouldn't incite any fear about taking off the mask and just enjoying yourself.

    My husband was at Wal-Mart Monday and he said a lot of people in the store had them under their chin. Apparently I'm not the only one who get bothered by them. We are told to wear them in every store, stores say you can't enter without a mask. Nobody said it had to be on ur face 😁

    Masks?

    No fine for the customer who says they have a medical condition since no mask is required

    Masks?

    There isn't a fine. The federal government did not issue an order of any sort, they just recommend it. The PA Government has "ordered" that anyone entering businesses should wear masks, but they cannot enforce it. Businesses "can" refuse entry to those not wearing masks, but it is highly unlikely they will. Since the government has said that those with medical conditions do not need to wear masks and do not have to provide information on the medical condition, can you imagine the lawsuits that would come about if something was said to someone? The fact is, the government (federal, state, local) does not have the resources to police such a policy. They would have to police not only the wearing of masks, but them being worn "properly" Someone is going to have limited rights no matter what in this mess. Either the greater mass of citizens is having their freedoms trampled with the shutdowns, mask orders, etc., or you will have the high risk individuals having their freedoms trampled if we tell THEM to stay home. I wear the damn things, but I also think people are nuts to believe in a false sense of security from them being worn. If other steps aren't taken to mitigate the risk masks being worn by another person and by yourself will do little to protect a person if they are not worn 100% correctly which will never happen. Basically, it comes down to protect yourself, act as if every single person you come into contact with is infected. For me, I will follow the "guidelines" within reason. If I get to the point I can't stand it then the local economy will be the one to suffer because I will switch to online shopping. I'm ok with not leaving the house. I'm ok if I don't have to see another human being.

    This is only good for people getting lots of unemployment (rare) or social security who still have their income . Others just don't get it. Some people have gone crazy and are going to the extreme. My daughter was sicker with the flu in January then some of these people who had Covid from hearing their stories. She was hospitalized too. I was with her the the whole time, no mask. Just used normal hygiene and never got sick and the flu is very contagious too.

    HATE wearing the masks. But, I do it...for now...because it's what I'm supposed to do. I'm not sure how long my patients will last though. Call me "selfish" or "self absorbed" or anything else you want. Judge me all you want, it won't alter my opinion. My observation, customers wear the masks near the door because that's where management/security resides. Throughout the store, masks come off (at least pushed below the chin). I am guilty of it too. Noticed store employees doing the same.

    I want to see an actual article that state there is a fine if you don't wear a mask. The only thing that can happen is you can be denied entrance to a store. Big deal. There is online shopping like allboys said. Other states are not demanding this so it must not be as important and the dictator Wolf says it is. If it is then why isn't every state requiring it. Fear mongering at its best and it really works on some people!

    Masks?

    Covid-19 patients in China found that those with more severe symptoms tended to have higher viral loads. People with higher viral loads may also shed more whole viruses, which makes them more contagious, compounding the danger of spreading disease more widely. Higher inoculating doses will lead to higher viral loads, and higher viral loads would translate into more pathogenic clinical courses,” said Dan Barouch, director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

    Congress

    Even if Congress isn't in session, they do work form their state located offices writing bills, assisting constituents with matters, and dealing directly with constituents' inquiries, etc, etc. Example: You have a problem with a federal project in your area, or notice something wrong at a federal park/forest - you write your representative/senator, and with their political weight they often get certain things done. Senators and Representatives do have lots of political weight within their jurisdictions, quite often enough that a letter from them to whatever local office will get some action. State Reps and Senators also do similar things while not in Harrisburg. I occasionally have to deal with a State Rep that likes to be a thorn in the side of telecommunications companies. And more often than not, the telecom bends to whatever that State Rep wants done.

    I have been extremely pleased with my care in State College. I've seen both Geisinger docs and Mt. Nittany doctors. A neurosurgeon at Mt Nittany saved my life, after the big shot UPMC neurosurgeon misdiagnosed me and wouldn't take time to listen to my concerns. I've also seen a really great specialist at UPMC. It truly depends on the doctor, not the healthcare system they are affiliated with.

    Everything alive was told in the beginning to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth. That was in God's natural planned order to protect us, and there are natural checks and balances IF we follow His word. However, man has continually meddled with that order, not following God's instructions. Very few people sacrifice for the welfare of others. Those who enabled the creation and proliferation of this virus are to blame. It was not a natural occurrence. Your immune system is the answer, created in a perfect order to protect us from disease but we mess with or ignore it all the time. How many people know what to do with it or how to feed and protect it? Satan is the one trying to get us to never follow nature, but to consume, change, destroy everything we want, but we try to pretend he only exists on Halloween as a game of sorts. God, "Mother Nature", the Earth all work together. We humans don't. NOW, get out and find a friend or SO who is willing to keep the recommended distance, wear a quality mask, each take your own lunch and maybe a beer if you wish, check out a stream and a seat, soak in the sun. Do it with other friends frequently. There are no limits unless it becomes a party which isn't permissible. Jesus said, Render to Caesar which is Caesar's (obey the common law) and render unto God what is His. Take care of His creation, which is you! Stay healthy and help others do so as well.

    HSV-1 and HSV-2: No cure-no vaccine

    So many people all worried about a vaccine for COVID. I know-I know----COVID kills---but it doesn't kill everyone. Heck, there are even doctors that deem themselves cured of COVID-19 after a week and half and go back to work. So, where are we on herpes cure research? For the record: NOT infected myself--just tossing something out for critical thinkers. Why isn't there a vaccine or a cure for something that's been around a lot longer than this latest virus? There are many forms of it. Many of these may distract your immune system and leave you vulnerable for something else. Herpes: Once the virus is in a person's system, it stays there for life. People can also be infected with the virus and have no symptoms. Right now, the sores and other symptoms of herpes are treated with one of several antiviral medications. There is no cure and there is no preventative treatment such as a vaccine. (Source emphasis; not mine.) So, imagine your immune system fighting this bad boy off and some schmuck with the Rona decides to have coughing fit right next to your sorry self. Remember how your parents intentionally had you around other kids that had chickenpox so you'd get it when you were younger because it's easier than when you are older? That's a virus: HHV-3. This virus also causes shingles. Bet some of you didn't know that chickenpox is a form of herpes. You're welcome! So, while your kiddo is fighting the pox, or grandpa is fighting shingles--they are left in a weakened state and could be ravaged by something else. I'm sure many of you had mono at some point. That my friends is HHV-4. Yep a form a herpes. Who knew? A friend's teenager has this now. Right now. In the midst of all this. Imagine the concern of a child with a weakened immune system from mono potentially contracting the corona. That is scary. Did your youngin' have roseola? form of herpes. HHV-6 Let's work on a cure for ALL viruses.

    Family of New York ER doctor who died by suicide: Getting COVID 'altered her brain' Dr. Lorna Breen's tragic death has left her loved ones reeling, and brings attention to the mental health challenges currently facing health care workers. Sister of ER doctor who died by suicide: She 'couldn't help enough people' APRIL 30, 202008:1 April 29, 2020, 6:02 PM EDT / Updated April 30, 2020, 8:13 AM EDT / Source: TODAY By Gina Vivinetto and Scott Stump The nation mourned this week when Dr. Lorna Breen, a New York emergency room doctor who battled to save the lives of coronavirus patients, died by suicide. Jennifer and Corey Feist, Breen's sister and brother-in-law, opened up about their loss to Savannah Guthrie in an exclusive interview on TODAY Thursday. Jennifer Feist believes that Breen, 49, who was ill with COVID-19 herself before returning to oversee the emergency room at New York-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, was tormented by the fact that she couldn't help more people. "She said it was like Armageddon," Jennifer Feist said. "She said, 'There are so many sick people everywhere.' "She said, 'People are just dying in the waiting room before they even get in. There aren't enough hookups for the oxygen to help them. They're not getting admitted fast enough. We can't keep up.'" Did COVID-19 alter the brain of doctor who died by suicide? APRIL 30, 202003: The couple also shared that Breen called them earlier this month asking for help during struggles with her mental health, saying she "couldn't get out of her chair." Her sister had a friend of Breen's drive her from New York to Philadelphia, where a high school friend picked her up and took her to Baltimore. Jennifer Feist met her sister there and brought her straight to the emergency room at UVA Health in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she stayed for 11 days. She then moved in with the Feists this past weekend before dying by suicide at their Charlottesville home on Sunday. Feist believes the virus impacted her sister's brain in negative ways. "When you think about what happened to Lorna, do you believe it was a result of her being sick with COVID or do you believe it was a result of her having to work so hard under these incredibly strenuous conditions?" Savannah asked. "I know it in my heart that it was both. She had COVID. And I believe that it altered her brain. Then she went back to the most horrific, unimaginable conditions," said Feist. "And for somebody whose life's calling is helping people, and she just couldn't help enough people. And the combination was just untenable." "She had 12-hour shifts," Feist added. "When she finished, she said, 'I can't leave. Nobody's leaving. I have to stay and help.'" ER doctor who treated coronavirustients committed suicide, her family says APRIL 28, 202001: Feist implored Breen to take better care of herself. But the late doctor was determined to save as many lives as she could. Recommended VIDEOSister of ER doctor who died by suicide: She ‘couldn’t help enough people’ VIDEODid COVID-19 alter the brain of doctor who died by suicide? "I kept telling my sister, you know, 'You can't — if you can't function, you can't help anybody. You have to sleep. You have to rest.' And she just didn't want to give up," said Feist. The Feists are speaking out about Breen in the hope of bringing awareness to the mental health issues that health care workers under enormous strain can face. "I'm hearing so much from people who work in health care saying, 'We always have to be brave. We always have to be strong. It's not okay to say that you're suffering,''' Feist said. "There's a stigma. "I know my sister felt like she couldn't sit down. She couldn't stop working, and she certainly couldn't tell anybody she was struggling. And that needs to be a conversation that changes. People need to be able to say they're suffering and to take a break." The couple has also set up the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Fund in her memory to provide mental health support to health care workers. "For those who are working together, if you have a colleague or a friend and you are wondering if they're suffering, they probably are," Feist said. And you should reach out to that person." If you are in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK) or reach out to the Crisis Text Line by texting ‘Home’ to 741741.

    Gas Price today (wholesale)

    Federal is $0.184 per gallon. PA is $0.576 or $0.587 per gallon(conflicting data). You also have to factor in delivery costs from the processing plant/wholesaler, localized inflation, and a couple other factors. Then there is a delay on wholesale oil to market. If the processor/wholesaler bought an overstock when oil was $50+ a barrel, prices will reflect that until some depletion.

    Yes, hype. Very little of the news contains actual information. Consistent information. Instead, a majority of it is scare tactics loaded with opinionated hype. Is there such thing as a pleasant death? Isn't every death a "horrible death"? Mortality rate of life is 100%.
