Honesty anyone who thinks life will return to pre-january 2020 in the next year or two is dilusional.

CDC has revised it's guidelines on the spread of Coronavirus, read this https://www.yahoo.com/news/cdc-says-cor ... 50288.html

'The coronavirus spreads most commonly in the air, through droplets or other tiny respiratory particles that apparently can remain suspended and inhaled, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says in new guidance.

The smaller particles, known as aerosols, are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or breathes and can be inhaled into someone's nose, mouth, airways or lungs, according to the CDC, which says that, in general, indoor settings without good ventilation increase the risk of contagion.

"This is thought to be the main way the virus spreads," the CDC has posted on its website. "There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others and travel distances beyond six feet (for example, during choir practice, in restaurants or in fitness classes)."

Experts on aerosols and the coronavirus said the change constitutes a profound shift in understanding of how the virus that has claimed almost 200,000 lives in the United States spreads. However, the updated two-page explanation provided little new guidance on how to protect against airborne transmission.

Previously, the federal health agency had said the coronavirus spreads mainly between people within about six feet of one another and through direct propulsion of exhaled droplets that land in the noses and mouths of individuals nearby. The CDC also said — and still says — that people may become infected by touching something that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes, but that touch is not the main way it spreads.'

Update to the last post I made: Now the CDC has said it posted the new guidance by mistake.

The Centers for Disease Control says it posted new guidance on airborne transmission in error and has removed the language.

“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website. CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted,” the CDC said.

So at my son's school classes started in late August, and there are students in class, but when they come out of the building they have a cop sitting in her car with a loud hailer telling them to keep 6 feet apart or use a face mask. Duh how about when there are 30 students in class with the same air they all breath not covering their faces.

That is ridiculous and on top of it the officer is not covering his mouth and nose with his face covering hanging down, should he be arrested too?

Things can get way worse , read this article https://www.yahoo.com/news/can-the-us-a ... 31755.html

“The 360” shows you diverse perspectives on the day’s top stories and debates.

What’s happening

Public health experts have feared for months that the United States would see a “second wave” of coronavirus cases in the fall as temperatures drop across the country. Now that autumn has officially begun, warnings that the U.S. could be heading for a catastrophic health crisis have become more urgent.

“We are entering into a risk period,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious diseases expert, told CNN on Tuesday. The U.S. has seen two distinct surges in coronavirus cases so far: the initial outbreak that reached its peak in April and another over the summer after lockdown measures were lifted. The United States recently passed 200,000 total coronavirus-related deaths.

Cases of respiratory viruses like the one that causes COVID-19 tend to rise in the fall and winter months as temperatures drop and people spend more time indoors. Most pandemic models predict a surge starting in the fall and worsening into the winter that could rival or even surpass the worst days of the spring. One well-regarded forecast sees a “most likely” scenario of more than 3,000 deaths a day in December and nearly 400,000 cumulative coronavirus-related deaths by the end of the year."
