    That tells me the precautions are working to a good extent.

    I'm sure the humorless will find this offensive too. From one of my sons-in-law:

    Good one.

    Publix has a time for only seniors over 65. And we are to stay home as much as possible but stores and restaurants are still open.

    Wow, restaurants. Ours are closed except for take-out orders. We are going into town once/week just to get out of the house, and order something to go in order to give them a bit of business. We have a lot of one-of-a-kind, family-owned eateries here that are really hurting. A lot of them donated food that was at risk of spoiling to the homeless shelter and food pantries, bless their hearts. Isn't it lovely how good most ppl are at heart?

    Sometimes my tendency to forget that I already have something and buy more is a good thing. Am in a group that is making protective masks for our medical personnel/first responders. The metal nose pieces and elastic are scarce. One lady who owns a jewelry shop in town has retooled and is using her metal/equipment to make the nose pieces. I found a box full of various sizes of elastic to donate; it's more than I'll need for our masks. So far our group has made and donated over 1,000 masks!!!

    I haven't been in a store since 3/15. Finally, after 11 days, I feel pretty sure I don't have Covid. Just don't want to go back in there and have to start over worrying again.

    You have more cases and people than we do. So I'm not overly worried plus everyone tries to keep as much distance from each other.

    There are a million people in Jax versus a few thousand where you live. It's not densely populated here and everything is pretty spread out, which is good.

    Lots of retirees there so they should be taking this seriously no matter what the dickheads in DC squawk.

    I used to live in Milton from '89 to '97. Are you anywhere near there?
    People who are constantly lashing out, spreading hate and attacking others are simply exhibiting personal pain. These poor souls are in constant agony and are so weak they think spreading hate will give them relief. It doesn’t. IMHO, it only makes their plight worse but there is no way to convince them otherwise so I feel the best solution is to just ignore them, pity them and forgive them.

    Our restaurants are all take out only. We have 3 infected 2 visitors 1 local, hopefully it will stay low. Our area seems to be doing good staying home.

    A bit more croweded down there than in Milton. Beautiful beaches though.
