Well we know they didn't get it at a Trump rally. Was there an event or party to point at. Maybe you shouldn't wear jorts and a Mask at the same time?

Really if they were wearing mask and abiding by the rules then either the masks don't work or they got it in a meeting or event.

Coming out the other side of the tunnel...run down on my experience here, I realize this disease will affect many different people in different way... 1st, tested positive, 2nd, came to the realization this was not a fake positive, felt rough a couple of days but never ran much of a fever...had loss of appetite, minor body aches, and in my case the main symptoms were fatigue and shortness of breath. I did not go to a doctor, and never took prescribed medication. When I first had a low grade fever (100.4), I did the Native American sweat tent burn out, seems to have worked pretty well. Actually knocked out a 16oz Ribeye from Big Mike's steakhouse last night....what worked for me.....Nyquil severe cold and flu, burn out, and tons of water, staying hydrated was the key for me, also slammed some vitamin C and Zinc too. I know this wont work for everyone, especially those with some underlying issues..but it's what worked for me.... I am well past my athletic years, not in bad shape, but not gonna be in the Olympics anytime soon,, overweight (may not be now, I've lost around 20lbs during this), but other than that relatively healthy. Hope this gives some folks a little insight and helps, not gonna lie, these mild symptoms ain't pleasant and I feel for the folks out there that have it worse.

A friend of mine was diagnosed about week ago. She's 64 and doing fine; she actually tested negative today. She said her worse symptoms were two days of diarrhea and her loss of taste/smell. She said the latter wouldn't return for three - four weeks. Was that the same for you?

And yeah, she chugged the hell outta some OJ.

Someone in the office just tested positive, so did her boyfriend.

They're shutting down the office for at least two weeks.

A friend that is 79 years old got it and was sick a few days with diarrhea and fever. His wife also caught it. Took a zpack and steroids and was over it in a week. He was a masker religiously. This disease is very strange in that some folks get it no matter what they do to prevent it and I know some that never mask and just live their lives like nothing is there. They don't get it. A lot of construction workers in our area don't own a mask. I was in a restaurant yesterday. Nobody had a mask on but the workers.

Health department here (liberal part of Montana) is shutting businesses down for not enforcing masks.

45 game played this weekend. Only one postponed.

...because it wasn't reported that I've seen.
