Staying at home
Some of them are the same people. (I saw a picture of a famous Proud Boy who traveled to one of the protests from out of state. He was also in Charlottesville.)They’re the blood brothers of those very fine people in Charlottesville.
I am interested in what sort of things you think they should be doing that they aren't doing?Our leaders need to do more to help those who are suffering from the impact of the shutdown whether psychologically or because they are shut in an abusive situation. We also need our leaders to be upfront about telling people not to fear accessing medical care and that hospitals are safe if you have a need to go.
We have commercials here telling people to come in for a health problem (just call first) and my medical group has sent me messages about it. The Governor mentions mental health during his daily briefings, but the media rarely reports on that. There have been some people in the spotlight who mentioned that they signed up for that TalkSpace app. And encouraged others to do so. Plus there are lots of PSAs about domestic abuse with hotline numbers.
On top of that, I think that our Project Room Key should be expanded to include not just healthcare workers and the homeless, but domestic abuse victims. I think that's better than a hotline number. I also think that one of Newsom's daily briefings should be about mental and physical health. Then the media would have to report on it. Plus we need some task force/initiatives about it.
What do you think?
That's about what we have. We'll have more in some parts of the state on Friday but so far the Bay Area hasn't said they will follow suit.Clothing stores in Ontario are not open yet, so not Ontario!
We have essential stores that sell groceries/drug stores, drive thru/curbside food pick up and curbside pick up at nurseries, etc. Nothing fancy yet.
Some poor Black guy got shot and killed when he was out jogging because some vigilantes decided he was a robber.I remember when people who wore masks were regarded with suspicion/thought to be criminals.
I really don't understand why they would keep them out of circulation for a week. That intense overkill. 24 hours would be fine according to the studies so if you want to be extra careful, you could keep them out for 2 days. Comments like this show to me that people aren't really absorbing the details and/or are overly scared. My sporting goods store keeps anything that comes into the warehouse in quarentine for a week too and I was just when they told me that (when my order was misdelivered by UPS and ended up back in the warehouse). Oh well, at least none of my favorite salespeople will end up getting the Crud from doing their job. Unlike Amazon workers.Ah, sorry I used the wrong tense - the steaming and taking clothes out of circulation for a week was the store's plan for when they open, not one they were currently using. Still, it could very well be somewhere other than Ontario. I am not even 100% positive it is anywhere in Canada, but I think so.
