  1. There are a lot of YouTube videos on making masks. Many don't require sewing. 😷
  2. I agree that some have no one to watch their kids but this isn't the time to drag them to the store. Grocery 'pick-up' is a great option for them and offered by several stores in the area. JMO
  3. Not so sure this is false..... I'm volunteering for the test group. <"CLAIM: Drinking alcoholic beverages can prevent coronavirus">. 🤫😷
  4. People need the truth. They need facts and guidance from the experts. It says a lot about the state of our union when people are trying to silence them. Sad....and stupid! SMH
  5. <" In the first report of residents from Brighton Rehab and Wellness my aunt was one of the residents taken to hospital."> Sending prayers for your aunt and the others who are suffering. 🙏😢
  6. Wonder if they will be permanent?? Social distancing at the checkout would be a welcome change. 🙄
  7. I wasn't sure if it was a typo or a 'funny'. Either way, it didn't detract from your video. 👍
  8. But...but....but....oh, nevermind.... 😋 And laced with essential oils too. 😉
  9. Umm....per the CDC...yes.... yes they are. The CDC says healthcare workers who can't get a mask should use a bandana or scarf as a 'last resort' as supplies run short Gabby Landsverk Mar 19, 2020, 1:43 PM As medical staff in the US face a rising number of COVID-19 cases with a dwindling supply of protective gear, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its advice, suggesting that, in a crisis, healthcare workers could use bandana or scarves over their faces while treating patients, despite the fact that neither are proven to be effective. In the recently updated guidelines for dealing with mask shortages, the CDC recommends that medical professionals "might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort" if other equipment is not available. The recommendation is "alarming" to medical professionals because there's no evidence homemade masks can protect against the virus, according to Celine Gounder, epidemiologist and clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious diseases at New York University. "While wearing a scarf or bandana might help prevent a sick person from transmitting coronavirus infection to others by trapping respiratory droplets, it is unsafe for healthcare workers to rely on scarves and bandanas to protect themselves against infection by their patients," Gounder told Business Insider via email. The CDC's own guidelines acknowledge that a bandana or scarf tied around the face still isn't considered personal protective equipment, noting that "their capability to protect [healthcare professionals] is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option." The site also advises that workers should "ideally" use a full face shield in combination with a homemade mask.
  10. I find it very disturbing that people on the front lines are being asked to BYOM or wear a freaking bandana! SMH That said, if I'm going to wear a DIY mask, I'm taking mr.d's bra mask but I'll be wanting one with XTREME padding laced (pun not intended) with essential oils for good measure (no pun intended there either)! 🤬
  11. This shows confirmed cases. As of yesterday, fewer than 2000 tests have been processed with results. With commercial labs being the primary testing option for most Pennsylvanians, data is not available on the total number of tests pending. https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Cases.aspx
  12. Sweet! 🥰 <"They have implemented mobile and video chat options through FaceTime, Messenger, Skype, and Google Duo."> And really nice that they are doing this for their residents and their families/friends.
