No idea how my sister caught it. I would imagine she's in the high risk category considering she works in the ICU and is dealing with patients who have it.

She did pass it to the rest of her immediate family.

With regards to a mask bring safe or not. I don't think it's a matter of questioning whether the mask is safe or not. But more in how people fiddle with their masks, what type of mask is it, does it fit properly, etc as to why they aren't as safe as people may think.

Hey everyone! I thought I would let you guys know what I have been up to lately.

I volunteered for the vaccine trials for Covid-19, held at UAB. The vaccine is the one that was created in Russia.

I received my first shot yesterday at 4:00 pm, and I wanted to let you all know that it’s completely safe, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι я чувствую себя немного странно и я думаю, что вытащил ослиные уши.

I failed to mention, one of my closest friends dad tested positive about a month ago and is getting plasma treatment, he lives in India. Believe India started plasma treatments early on.

I spoke with my sister last night. She said it's a beating. She understands the struggles her patients have been going through with covid-19. As of yesterday, she was on day 10.

She told me it's a struggle to drink liquids, which is important. One of the biggest issues with this is pneumonia. Once this gets in the lungs it gets much more challenging to treat.

Remdesivir seems to be working with patients, you'll need to sign waivers/releases to use this. This is reducing the amount of time spent intubated. The medicine itself sounds interesting, not necessarily in a good way.

FDA has also approved plasma treatment as well, though not sure if it's been officially approved or just emergency use only.

I haven't received my blood work from my blood donation. Curious to know if I have antibodies.

Really, the only problem I have with this is, it was to commemorate the 9/11 first responders. If it had been for just another Friday night and you had the team wanting to run the various flags out, outside of the US flag, then fine. I feel that the superintendent stepped over the line and suppressed free speech and made a political statement of his own. Public education is already taking a lot of criticism for "indoctrinating these students with Leftist ideals and brainwashing". I haven't experienced or see it firsthand, but it is being put out there. The superintendent could've squashed that with allowing the flags to fly for the 9/11 night.

Colorado director of football operations Bryan McGinnis has been issued a ticket for a 100-player hike on a Colorado mountain trail, Boulder officials told the Boulder Daily Camera on Friday.

McGinnis was ticketed for violating a public health order and failure to obtain a large group permit, which was needed to have more than 24 people to gather.

Park rangers told the newspaper that 108 people were in the Buffaloes group Thursday and that many were not wearing masks or social distancing from others on the trail.

Colorado athletic director Rick George noted in a statement that players involved had tested negative for COVID-19 but also noted the team's error.

"We acknowledge the lapse in judgment and apologize for our football team partaking in a group activity like this on public open space amid the current COVID-19 climate," George said. "We share in the community's concern and anxiety about the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, and we do not tolerate actions that are contrary to public health orders. We will address this with our football program, and continue to educate our coaches, staff and student-athletes about the importance of complying with public health orders, including wearing masks and physical distancing at all times while in public."

In a statement to the Daily Camera, Boulder officials said they would prefer to prioritize education over citations, but "law enforcement officers will issue citations for especially egregious behaviors like what occurred during this recent hike."

Just found out the majority of Montana counties will ONLY allow mail-in voting this election. Sounds like there are only a handful of counties that will offer in person voting.
