I live in Dallas County and it amazes me the number the KEEPS increasing.  Of course, working retail, I understand it.  We have a large number of people who just really don't care because they don't believe it's serious.
I had a lady walk in and when I politely called about the need for masks, she raised her hand that contained her mask and said she had it.  Never made the attempt to put it on though. 
Luckily, a man walked in behind her and her husband, hear my interaction and saw her response.  He literally stopped in his tracks. Looked at me, then her, then made a mock shock gun motion. I nearly lost it with laughter.
That in itself shows me there are SOME people out there with common sense.

Bubba hugs y'all!!
hugs!

That's the big concern in the island I live on. The people seem to believe more  that it's a "scam" (even though it doesn't make any sense,because a lot of money has been lost already) and are prone to believe the conspiracy theorists......
Of course,everywhere I go with a mask I get laughed at,however now it's been made necessery to wear one in enclosed spaces.
So far we had a tourist on the island with the virus and probably some rogue ones.
I hope everyone is well and I hope you are too bubba. Hugs.

Local church held a tent revival a few weeks ago.

Great idea. Went as expected. Took a few weeks to bear fruit.

1 death. Spike in local infections. Magistrate Judge was there, infected, exposed courthouses in two counties.

I sure as hell hope that church got their tithes and offerings for the good works.

I swear to their God, something is wrong with the way these people think.

'We're dying here,' Florida newspaper says in pleading with governor to issue a statewide mask mandate

 I believe we are in our 4th consecutive day of record breaking Covid deaths, here in Florida.

As little as a month ago Covid wasn't changing much in my life.

But as diagnoses have steadily climbed in the neighbouring state of Victoria and now here in New South Wales I've been wearing a mask to and from work, lots more regulation at work. It looks like I'll never be heading out to a bar or restaurant or celebrating birthdays with friends for years to come

I'm very sad for the people who are losing family and friends and can't be with them in their final hours   I remember back to the worst of the AIDS epidemic, at least we would be able to visit and to care for our loved ones. 

I'm also upset that researchers are excluding PLWHAs from Covid vaccine trials.

I must count my blessings this has not yet infected anyone who I know.

Is it just me, or are some of these infected senators and congressmen the same people that criminalize and demonize nondisclosure of hiv status?

Pozzies are not good enough for the vaccine. Why am I not surprised.

"As large trials get underway to test the vaccines needed to stop the global coronavirus pandemic, one group has realized they are being left out and is not happy: People living with HIV."..
