Today was Minnesota's first day in the 10% positives in three weeks. Also, record high volume of tests run.

Just to note, any thread not relevant to COVID and is political will get clipped without notice.

And yes, I know the topic has political aspects to it.  Take it elsewhere.

It's starting to impact my extended family. Active cases I know of, or which are fairly certain: My wife's 93-year old aunt. My wife's sister, and having spoken to her Husband by phone the other day constantly coughing - I am quite sure he has it, and one of my 1st cousins who is about 70-years old is hospitalized with it. My wife has a cousin whose spouse has it and we suspect her cousin spread it to her aunt and probably had it.
It is to the point here in NE Iowa that I think we are more likely to get it than to avoid it. I reported here earlier I tested positive in October, and I am quite isolated.
The governor put out a mask mandate a few days ago, but I noticed in Wal-Mart someone not adhering to it. And we have people dying from it here, and that has affected my law practice.

Looks like Wisconsin has peaked. 7 day average has been trending down for about a week now. Today's reporting will be interesting.

When it comes to vaccines that are 90% effective against a disease, the more the merrier.

Two kids returning home from college from hot zones for Thanksgiving. Rather than trying to implement some kind of futile half assed quarantine inside our home the wife and I will live life as normal.  After being in isolation at home for a week we’ll get the kids PCR tested per local regulations so they can go out and get it from thier friends.

It's not particle filtration, but they're studying how it spreads most effectively in enclosed spaces and how to mitigate that.

pretty sure the Governor's mandate stated no barstools.  This is my local bar in Sioux City yesterday

Awesome thanks for sharing.  Yeah, I'm not tied specifically to filtration, but it's definitely good to see work being put into understanding how the spread occurs indoors, and how we can mitigate the risks.

It's interesting that they refer to musical instruments.  My daughter's middle school band issued coverings for various instruments that have horns or bells at the end, including her French horn's bell.   It does very little to mute or alter the tone, although for a French horn specifically, there must be a hole in it for the placement of your hand.
