We've got to firebomb Atlanta airport. It's the only way. It'll mean that any lingering Coronavirus at the airport is destroyed, that Atlanta airport will no longer exist, and that Delta Airlines will be crippled by the loss of their largest hub. That's a triple win in any book, and when you have the chance for a triple win, you take it.

He's crippled Atlanta's highway system from beyond the grave.  Not sure he gives a hoot about the airport.

I'll wager it's been through every major airport by now.

Going to be flying into Orlando during spring break season in a week and a half. I'd be worried but I live in a college town where literally about half the town will be traveling over break. So I'm probably screwed anyways.

A bit of advice from a fellow Farker who works at Hartsfield:

Keep Lysol or Clorox wipes with you everywhere you go.  Try to limit contact with surfaces in public areas and wash hands often.  I'm wearing gloves almost nonstop at work unless I'm on patrol where I don't have to touch anything or anyone.   I don't think this virus lasts in the air any longer that a cold virus can, but I am not sold that it cannot linger on surfaces for extended periods of time.  There's a reason why people are getting it again after being cleared of the virus.

Yellow Beard: What a coincidence. So have I.


Everyone has.  Fun fact:  When you die, you go through there on your way to Heaven or Hell.  Actually, for Hell you just stay there and smell 10 dollar pretzels knowing your HR will not allow that on the company credit card.

TSA is notorious for denying sick leave requests and generally making the lives of employees miserable for using sick leave. Wait until it spreads to airport employees who are coughing and sneezing all over everyone as they pass through the security checkpoints.

It was inevitable.

Hearing about CovID across the country is one thing, hearing about it across the county line is another.

Not that I'm going to much change anything I'm doing.  I have to go food shopping and will probably buy some extra canned goods and the like in the event things get crazy here.  Sorta like when I lived in Florida and bought my "hurricane supplies" at the beginning of each season - when the season was over I'd use them.

Found out this morning that it's in my county now. Go Norfolk County! Woo!

We're going into a modified blizzard prep - instead of bread, milk, and eggs, we're getting some canned foods and filling up the freezer chest with stuff we'll eat anyways. If it ends up being nothing we'll just not have to buy more chicken fingers for a few weeks.

Yeah, by Greyhound bus via the Albuquerque-Tacoma-Albany route that never actually stops in Detroit.

It lasts about 8 days on surfaces. Gloves and sanitizer will help a lot. Be aware that handling cash or change and then keeping it in your wallet is risky. Use plastic when you can.

My point was that it isn't shocking that the virus has been through there. As you pointed out, everybody has been through there.

My company doesn't really question what I spend on the company card. If they bothered me about a $10 purchase, I'd find a new job.

If you found out it's in your county, that likely means it was there 2 weeks ago.  Lock it all down now, and find out in 2 weeks where it really is.  Or just keep going and ignore it.  The gestation time farks all attempts to stop it that aren't a complete lock-down.  And its ability to survive on surfaces seems to be making re-infection a huge deal.

GregInIndy: The apocalypse preppers in the north Georgia hills gotta be having a hard time continuing to pretend it's nothing while furiously masturbating to the news coverage.


There's a good chance that they were already doing that, regardless of the news coverage, so I don't think much has changed for them.

Yep, I have CDC people in very close proximity to me at work.  That's why I bought my own personal supply of 9 mil thick nitrile gloves.  The agency provides us with 5 mil nitrile gloves, but I'm not taking any chances because I have kids at home.

Quit stalking me.  Had to fly out east a few months ago, Layover in Detroit on the way there, annoying people actually there, then layover in Atlanta on the way back from there.  Fortunately, months before COVID-19, so just regular travelers crud afterward.

Hated there.  Not too fond of HR either.  Think I might be wary of you.  Are you in my HR?

My theory is that they don't have nose-hairs for the stuff to cling to and crawl up in your nose.  Only those with immaculately trimmed nose hair will survive.  And children, who have none.

With kids, you should always use 10 mil gloves, since they are twice as safe as 5 mil.  I heard that on the internet, so it's scientifically sound medical advice.  Also, covering your head with a rubber glove helps to keep the air out, making it impossible for you to get the virus that way.
