I see a lot of resistance (and rationalizing) on FB about NOT wearing a mask.  Some think it's not healthy CO2 etc.  I bought some soft cotton masks for me and the wife and they are comfortable enough, I don't have a problem wearing them when we're around others.  I don't when I jog, I can avoid others on the track easily.

I have to get the dreaded lurgy test next Tuesday, along with the presurgical physical, done same place fortunately.

You get tested on Tuesday and have surgery from Friday.

I've tried running with the mask on, I just can't do it.  Fortunately, running out here in my part of the 'burbs, it's easy to stay quite far from other people, so wearing a mask isn't really necessary. 
I ride my bike masked, and I don't have a problem breathing, even after a hard effort or steep uphill. Another upside is not inhaling bugs during said hard efforts.

glad I don't have kids in school

just wish my daughter at UNL could get her internship finished and graduate - that's all she's lacking
Kinda glad I took the PE exam last fall. The spring exam was cancelled outright, and it's causing problems with capacity and format restrictions with NCEES and Pearson.

You don’t need to wear a mask if you’re outside running or on a bike. 

This thing is a weird disease that pretty much only spreads in close quarters, indoors. Which is a reason why people like evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein think it might have leaked from a lab.

There was an early scare that we could get it from surfaces.  That has proven to be rare, probably about as rare as picking up anything from a surface.

Yeah.  There was some talk about having in-person classes outdoors, but there are just so many challenges there, it's a pretty unworkable solution.

Herman Cain was 75 years old and had been battling stage 4 cancer. So, uh, yeah.

Yeah, I guess people like Herman Cain are expendable.

3/4 of people who recover have persistent heart damage.

CW I dont think Mdot meant it the way it sounded at least I hope not

Nobody is expendable and its a shame he passed

I wouldnt accepts this as accurate just yet

They looked at 100 patients and other then age we dont know much about these patients

preexisting conditions etc and how sick did they get and was there any followup to see id the damage remained

not saying the virus doesnt harm your heart but we should wait for more info before we say 75% of virus patients have damaged hearts

I dont know either but if he had chemo it trashes your immune system so either way he would be at a higher risk

Oh I know just his post made it seem like he was currently suffering from stage IV cancer. My mother just went through chemo and is 73 so it's a worry
