Rules for Fighting the Pandemic

If you are sick, stay home.  Even a cold or flu can infect many and weaken their immune systems.  It will also make them spend a day in a car line to get a Coronavirus test, and quarantine themselves and their family, and maybe coworkers, for a week to get a negative result.

Get a flu shot early.  Avoid people with colds or flu or coughs.

Keep up with your children’s other vaccinations.

Wear a mask whenever near people.  Follow all the local and state rules.

Get a mail or an absentee mail ballot, and use it in November.

Listen to scientists, and take the Coronavirus vaccine when it comes out if they recommend it.  Especially if you are old and/or have chronic vulnerabilities.

Avoid being misinformation infected by unreliable internet or Fox News or White House sources.

If you need medical or dental care, get it now.  The situation will get much worse later.

Stop looking to the White House or Republican States for guidance.  Follow the Democratic States and Democratic cities.

Once you are vaccinated, you can keep watching Fox News until the next pandemic.

Get an isolated walk in every day.

Since there are few people to talk to, write a blog every day.  It can be purely made up analogies, parody, or comedy, just like the White House.

Watch several complicated webinars a day.  They are great to catch up on sleep.

Despite how gloomy things look, reflect that there are 130 million new healthy babies born worldwide every year.  That is what life is really all about.
