GetAClue and Gordon more than likely know about that, since they are pretty close to my area.
Covid is real.
It's sneaky.
It's vicious.
As a nurse I can tell you this has not been fun.
Lollie, I have NEVER said that Covid wasn't real and deadly serious. My contention is that a simple cloth mask is not going to prevent the spread. I do feel for you and those around you and hope that the worst is behind us.

If I felt that wearing a mask would stop Covid in it's tracks, I would be out there pushing everyone to wear one. As someone that nearly died a few years back from the flu, I can attest to how serious these things can be. However, as simple paper or cloth mask is not going to stop a virus that is about 1 micron in size. An N95 mask protects down to 3 microns and is your best defense if you can get a hold of them. But a paper or cloth mask is like trying to container a swarm of mosquitoes with a split rail fence.

I will however, pray for you and your co workers as this thing runs its course. Stay safe!
