  And , unfortunately,... Florida is acting as though nothing is going on. Bars are running normal, Restaurants are normal. We've also noticed that the restaurants are getting sloppy, in keeping things clean.and wiped.

I do have to be fair though, some of the restaurants and still keeping social distance, and keeping social distance between tables and booths, others just pack you in there like nothings going on.

So,... We've cut back to curbside pickup, and delivery, and doing more cooking at home. Still will not enter any bars that we used to go to. Not worth the risk.

Current Meds ; Viramune / Epzicom , 20 mg of Atorvastatin, 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide.
Amlodipine Besolate 5mg-- Updated 5/27/21 tested positive in 1985,.. In October of 2003, My t-cell count was 16, Viral load was over 500,000, Percentage at that time was 5%. I started on  HAART on October 24th, 2003.

 As of May 27th,21,  Viral load remains Undetectable

Well here things just relaxed on Friday and today they are discussion bringing back the lockdown measurements ... That was short-lived. Did spot a plague group protesting in the park this morning. Scary bunch of people that piss me off and entertains me at the same time though.

Anyhow, keeping my distance from people and just trying to stay safe when we do have to go out, been avoiding shops, bars, restaurants and gatherings.
