    Abels Pub- 30 Covid cases?

    I really admire their optimism that the bars will be open on the 11th.

    Donald and Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19

    He is apparently symptomatic, and in a high-risk group that has a 50/50 chance of needing hospitalization. I may not be a fan, but wish him a recovery without drama. Pro-tip, just in case it becomes relevant for any of us: if you do have to be sedated and intubated, do not walk toward Herman Cain, no matter what he tells you. Also, new campaign slogan: "Hope is contagious."

    Keep an eye on the hospitalizations, too. We've gone from 2 earlier this month to 8. At least early in the epidemic, the usual lead time was about ten days from detecting cases to people getting sick enough to need a hospital bed. That group you find at the local pubs overlaps pretty heavily with vulnerable groups. Hopefully this tamps down quickly.

    I have Covid-19

    They're only interested in people she's been in close contact with for more than ten minutes.

    Maybe there is some hope for Bingalins?

    I wonder how mad ConklinColt is about Debbie Preston. "how could you make her go to court over that of course she did that who wouldn't everybody does things like that in moxietown the government has all the money so why shouldn't people with government jobs take it if it's sitting there she didn't hurt anybody just mind your own business"

    Rate the COVID-19 Response of Trump, Cuomo & Garnar

    Not by way of an "I told you so", but I did post about this way back before the epidemic ever took off. During the first SARS epidemic, 42 people died in one apartment building in Hong Kong because of improper plumbing. (Building codes exist for a reason.) The p-traps in the drains had gone dry and allowed aerosolized virus to contaminate the bathrooms when someone several floors away flushed their toilet full of infectious waste. Public bathroom toilets usually do not have lids. Flushing is proven to spray particles of whatever is inside several feet in every direction.

    WBNG had some quotes from the Health Department trying to explain when they do and do not issue an alert. They're obviously taking some heat over all this: https://wbng.com/2020/09/28/health-officials-explain-reasoning-behind-recent-spike-in-broome-county-covid-19-cases/

    Oh, no. If they die, Battisti has no base to run again.

    It's OK, we know that's just the side effects from the HCQ talking. We love you, bro.

    I hope your test comes back negative soon.

    Abels Pub- 30 Covid cases?

    I can't imagine why these clusters keep forming in poorly-ventilated spaces where groups of near-strangers take their masks off and speak loudly directly into each other's faces for hours. So weird. In all seriousness, the local commentariat were bitching incessantly when Cuomo was only talking about downstate. People should be careful what they wish for, hopefully we're not about to get it. How are you doing, '75? They finally got you off the ventilator, but are you feeling 100%? Know that we were praying for you.

    There's a new antigen rapid test in the works that is cheap enough to be used this way and would screen out people who were sick and trying to hide it. However, there's still a manufacturing bottleneck. Trump has said they're contracted to distribute 150,000,000 of the tests to states and will eventually be producing 50,000,000 monthly. Fifty million per month definitely is not enough to test every food service worker before their shift, nevermind the first responders, daycare centers, etc., they've already got in mind.

    Also Nirchi's in Vestal, and St. John the Evangelist Elementary. Trying to be optimistic, but this is pretty concerning. County's counter jumped to 128. ...and a lot of these are part-time jobs where the staff juggle multiple jobs at different restaurants.

    Weird. I can add an item to the cart and click all the way through to payment right now, although a lot of things are out of stock. I don't see that message anywhere. As of a month ago, they were only opening their store for about an hour around 11am, but orders were coming in so fast they'd have to shut it back down to catch up. That was how I finally got my stuff.

    Abels Pub- 30 Covid cases?

    Yeah. York Barbell's web store is operating again - for now. Wegmans also has some Method Antibac in stock. It's not rated specifically for coronaviruses but is for rhinoviruses and influenza, so it probably does a fine job sanitizing doorknobs, etc.

    Also Fountains, Remlik's, Dillenger's, and I'm pretty sure this week's case at The Beef was a different case from from the other one reported the other week. As far as I can tell, the climate effect on the is real but not strong enough to stop it in the summer. Instead, it seems like it just shifts to a weaker epidemic in hot areas where people are hanging out indoors with the air conditioning on and the doors and windows closed - Arizona, Florida, Texas. The United Kingdom, France, and Spain are spiking new case counts far higher than the first wave just as the weather cools back down. Has been a beautiful summer while we had it. Might not be a bad idea to get your toilet paper, frozen vegetables, personal care/workout supplies, and whatever you need to make the winter enjoyable now. (Bicycles were not easy to get this summer.) I doubt they'll shut down fully again, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if bars and indoor dining go, with retail going back to curbside pickup. May not be much to do this winter and we might need to make our own fun for a while, and it would suck to be filling the freezer at the same time the shelves are stripped for Thanksgiving/Christmas dinners.

    That might be, but the county's map shows 53 of 115 current cases linked to Binghamton residents. We do seem to be running hot right now.
