I just canceled regular checkups with my dentist and ophthalmologist for this week and rescheduled, because of the current rise in Covid-19 infections.

They take the appropriate safety precautions, I just don't trust the general public that they have to deal with. :cool:

In conversations with them, many patients are doing the same.

It's been reported there is a coin shortage and now some businesses are unable to make change with coins.

Another way the world has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic: The number of coins in circulation has plummeted.


In a brief statement, Kroger spokeswoman Erin Rolfes said the Federal Reserve is experiencing a coin shortage. Coin change from cash transactions will be applied to our customers’ loyalty cards then automatically used on their next purchase.

Or the new term is "Covidiot" (name for shaming ignorant, selfish coronavirus reactions)

Insanity.

A meeting in Utah to decide school mask policy had to be called off because the room was crowded and filled with people not wearing masks.

"This is the exact opposite of what we need to be doing," Ainge said at the meeting. "We are supposed to be physically distancing, wearing masks."

The audience responded with a loud chorus of boos.
