I'm ok with the 14 day quarantine for out-of-staters. Why should we let others potentially pass the virus onto our residents and then our health system has to deal with those new cases. I think we should have gone further and say that any Delawarean who leaves the state and then comes back should also self-quarantine.
Well, if these United States shared resources, then it wouldn’t be an issue. Or if all states has shut down at the same time, etc.We are the UNITED States of America. Next some states will insist upon passports to enter.
You are right about the International Travel Ban. Cuomo just spoke on how millions from Europe flew into NYC Airports weeks after the China Ban. They traveled to other parts of the country and spread it more. These United States don't share resources, they Bid against each other for resources and states with fewer sick residents get the same $ as sicker states. We blew a chance to cut losses when we had it. The Market goes up and I worry if my kids will have their government jobs, after the Billions are recklessly thrown around. Just InsanityWell, if these United States shared resources, then it wouldn’t be an issue. Or if all states has shut down at the same time, etc.
The federal govt should have insured a domestic travel ban, in addition to an international one, to contain the spread.
Old Navy/ Gap just started selling mask made out of leftover material. They'd look comfortable, they are the pleated type, 5 for $13 plus shipping.Can someone share a link or recommend a place where I can acquire lighter, more breathable masks? The one I have now is just a typical N95 mask that I only wear for short stints to the grocery store, and I cannot imagine wearing it for longer than 20-30 mins at a time.
Wow, do you have images of N95 masks with and without the exhalation valves? And what about N100 masks? Is it the same deal there? My sister has a N100 mask from when she worked in old, dusty and rodent-infested buildings to avoid hantavirus as well as other things, I assume. Hers has those cylinders coming from the side of the face and looks like a gas mask, but without the face shield.To be clear wearing masks is a pain in the a- er, tuchus. I hate the things. I have a surgical mask (my wife got a few from a client who had them) and I have trouble breathing, I have trouble seeing, and I can’t breathe adequately when I go out to walk for exercise when wearing one- so I don’t wear one, I just cover my face and hold my breath and further distance when I come across other people.
But when I am in close confines with other people (like inside a store- or on a train), it is simply tough nuggies. We need to protect others. However, please listen up to the following:
DO NOT WEAR VENTED N95 RESPIRATORS OR NON-DISPOSABLE N95 FACE MASKS.
The non disposable ones are the ones with the big filter cartridges mostly used for doing hazardous work. Vented ones are the ones with the plastic valve in the fiber mask.
Both of these have breathing vents that open on exhalation and are designed to exhaust air rapidly. They improve the ease of breathing, but what they do is filter on inhalation and exhaust unfiltered air on exhalation. This works great when you are trying to keep sawdust from your lungs; it does little to keep you from exhaling contaminated particles.
for this crisis All of these face coverings are about keeping saliva vapor from the air; vented masks are inferior to no mask at all (because in that case you are aware of your potential to infect). Putting your t-shirt over your face is a better idea then a vented mask.
i am speaking in my capacity as someone who used to sell safety equipment for a living.
You're slipping TR7, Amtrak announced it on FB yesterday.The Downeasters are "down and out" through 5/31 and there are rumblings of Acela restorations in early June.
I don't know if it is in the current Amtrak Standards manual but it was in the older ones. At McDonalds and other major fast food restaurants, they have the same issue. The problem is caused by the customers but the solution is not to make an announcement chiding everyone for the state of the restrooms but instead to have the employees clean them on a regular basis and, if a customer tells the manager that a restroom needs attention, have an employee do it ASAP.The proper solution is for Amtrak to ensure the staff clean the coach bathrooms on a regular basis. Out of hundreds of coach flights I can count major issues with bathroom cleanliness on one hand, whereas on Amtrak I can count the number of times the coach bathroom was not disgusting on one hand.
