I’ve never seen such stupidity. Not only with this virus but the fact that an idiotic, racist, sack of lying shit was voted in as president, who downplayed this virus. When this virus is over and I make it through to the other side, I’m still practicing social distancing. I don’t want to get infected with stupidity.

They’re doing enforcement here. While I’m usually not a big fan of involving police unless necessary, people won’t stop so I can completely understand in this instance. I see convoys of sheriff’s vehicles going around.

Hi all, just wanted to share this as I know in this post some had posted that they may have had symptoms consistent with COVID-19 although it wasn't necessarily confirmed through testing. There is a study looking for volunteers through the National Institutes of Health of people who may have had COVID-19 although did not get a confirmed diagnosis.

Disclaimer, I don't work for the NIH, although I do work for HHS but I'm not involved in this study in anyway. Just sharing so that hopefully they can get a good sampling of individuals and in the hopes that more can be learned to find something effective to combat this illness that has taken so many lives and impacted others. If you're interested I've posted the link with more information.

I just collaborated with some of our Medical Center staff to create a process to administer "Convalescent Plasma" to our COVID-19 patients, if necessary. What is Convalescent Plasma?

Read the FDA link.

The hospital where I get my cancer treatments has begun testing all patients for COVID-19. I went in today, got tested, and within a few hours I had my result - negative. I would have been very surprised if I'd tested positive, since I've been staying home, washing my hands, etc., but I'm glad to have official confirmation.

Stay home (if you can) and stay safe.

I'm glad you had a negative COVID19 result. That's one less thing to worry about. Best wishes to you as you complete your cancer treatments. May you grow stronger and healthier than ever before!

Not quite accurate. The business meetings of the Chi Omega Convention 2020 will be held virtually. The in-person aspect of Convention will not be held.
