Also, today at work my inventory of XL nitrile disposable gloves was running low.  The usual supplier is out.  I checked other sources including e-bay and they are really hard to find in something about 6-8 mil thick, box/100 or more for a reasonable price.  So, I called an off beat supplier that we don't usually source PPE from and boom they had twenty packs left at a great price.

20 boxes are shipping from Alabama.  2000 gloves, 1000 pair $250 or so plus shipping.

/whatever it takes is my motto right about now

Today's terrifying experience: Had to go let a client in to the building and bring them to a provider's office. This client is familiar to me, and it's clear to me that he's in a rough place. Filthy, experiencing homelessness again, but doing what he needs to do to collect documentation so he can get his medical marijuana card. That's cool. *shrug* I'm just here to help. So I go let him in, wearing mask and gloves. We ride up together in the small elevator. He starts talking about "this virus everybody's so scared of." He tells me, "It's fine. It's really not that big of a deal, and the only people that die from it anyway are the ones who take ibuprofen. The ones who recover are the ones who didn't take ibuprofen. If you take ibuprofen when you have this, you get hypothermia and pneumonia at the same time, and that's what kills you." I asked him where he got this information, and he said, "This guy on the internet? On YouTube? He has a friend who's a medical doctor, and he's been studying this stuff."

Sooooo yeah. BBQ and wine. Silkwood shower. This is my evening.

That's simply terrifying.

/take care of yourself

Trying my best. I feel like a redshirt every time I have to go downstairs to let a client in. I love my clients, and I'm doing my best by them, but it really feels like I'm the only one in my office who's taking this seriously, but I might be getting through to my boss. Which is good, because the Relapse Prevention guy thinks he's cute by fake-coughing in my direction.

So yeah. Scalding hot shower, scrubbing with an italy towel so I remove a couple layers of skin while I'm in there, and every single precaution I've taken so far is feeling justified. Cuz goddamn.


The high level administrators at work aren't wearing masks.

I've begged for us to get masks.

There are apparently f*cking N95 masks available for the high level administrators who aren't wearing them but us peons who have to a) handle tons of equipment and b) travel between multiple sites can't get them.

California Governor Gavin Newsome ordered all Orange County beaches shutdown beginning tomorrow at noon. Original reports and leaked documents reported late Wednesday suggested all beaches in California will be closed.

This action has set off a standoff between various Orange County government officials and Newsome.

Some of the beaches are already considered public parks.

I do agree some of these places are going to get creative.

All this creativity will likely bring a spike in Covid-19 cases.

Me and one other person are the only people in the office who wear masks. We both have only ho-made, non-filter, fabric masks. Can't find gloves in town, work is providing a box of vinyl XL gloves, but I have tiny hands. No smalls to be had. I left a message at my fave local tattoo shop hoping desperately that they'll actually listen to their voicemails, asking if I can buy some gloves from them, cuz I know they have nitrile gloves and likely more than one size. There's no hope for N95 masks for us, though I did ask my boss if maybe she should talk to the company that does our UA processing if maybe they can hook us up with gloves that are sized correctly.

Most of my clients don't wear masks. Many of them couldn't access them anyway, but there are a number of them (like the gentleman I mentioned in my previous post) who wouldn't wear them if they did have access.

Results for covid was "not detected". My brother in law said that means 60-66% chance I do not have it.

Meanwhile, the fevers for the last few months are baffling my doctor. We both don't want to bother the infectious disease unit with my symptoms while a pandemic is going on. I was tested for a lot of things back in November (thyroid, etc) and that was negative so I'm to keep an eye on my fever spikes.

Thank you all for your concerns.

Yeah, I think when he tried that shiat last night thinkin' he was cute, I gave him something to think about when I informed him that that could be considered assault right now. He's a former federal parole officer, he's already said that I scare him, and he knows that when I'm not farking around, I'm REALLY not farking around. He stayed far away from my office for the rest of the evening. Which is fine by me. It remains to be seen how he behaves next week.

My clients need people to look out for them and show them some kindness. We've lost one so far recently (no autopsy as yet, no idea what the cause of death was), I'd like to keep the number to a minimum. But I roll through the obits every morning just in case. I hate that part of my job.

Yesterday as I was getting ready to head to the office after working from home in the morning, I noticed that my wallet, sunglasses, 2 sets of keys, and hand sanitizer bottle were all on the bar stool by the kitchen counter instead of on the counter where I'd left them. Apparently El Gato knocked my entire array of leaving the house for work stuff off the counter in a bid to wake me up for breakfast.

I'm not sure.  I'm going to check with my safety manager tomorrow because latex would be a lot easier to source for general use.

However, for the shop I need more chemical resistance (nitrile=synthetic rubber) for the grease and brake clean, parts washing fluid, oils, and other hazards.

JulieAzel626: California Governor Gavin Newsome ordered all Orange County beaches shutdown beginning tomorrow at noon. Original reports and leaked documents reported late Wednesday suggested all beaches in California will be closed.

This action has set off a standoff between various Orange County government officials and Newsome.

Huntington Beach held an emergency meeting Thursday to decide what actions they could take to "work around this order."



Are they allowing people to go in the water if they close the beach?

It's loosened up a bit here to allow walking/exercise on the beach if maintaining distance, but no sitting around or sunbathing. But from the get-go they've allowed folks to get in the water to swim, surf, etc.

Fun Fact: Thanks to a forward-thinking state supreme court chief justice in the 1970s, beaches in Hawai'i are considered public land up to the high tide line. So there are no private beaches, even if the only way to get to the beach without crossing private property is from the water.

G-Ride: JulieAzel626: California Governor Gavin Newsome ordered all Orange County beaches shutdown beginning tomorrow at noon. Original reports and leaked documents reported late Wednesday suggested all beaches in California will be closed.

This action has set off a standoff between various Orange County government officials and Newsome.

Huntington Beach held an emergency meeting Thursday to decide what actions they could take to "work around this order."


Are they allowing people to go in the water if they close the beach?

It's loosened up a bit here to allow walking/exercise on the beach if maintaining distance, but no sitting around or sunbathing. But from the get-go they've allowed folks to get in the water to swim, surf, etc.

Fun Fact: Thanks to a forward-thinking state supreme court chief justice in the 1970s, beaches in Hawai'i are considered public land up to the high tide line. So there are no private beaches, even if the only way to get to the beach without crossing private property is from the water.


Not allowing anybody in the ocean.

ski9600: BDR459: TBC: Sarah Jessica Farker: Trying to read while in bed. So happy I do crazy hair dye, TONS of small nitrile gloves.

Mom's a retired nurse, so we usually have many many boxen of them in the house. I do crazy hair dye too, plus we garden and work with compost. But we've run low with all the additional usage, and there's nowhere in town that's open that has 'em. I checked Sally. I checked Sam's. I checked all the local pharmacies. Nothin'. So now I've getting creative. I gotta.

How's that wing of yours? How's your brainmeats? Did you at least get fun drugs?

Would these do?

I'm not sure.  I'm going to check with my safety manager tomorrow because latex would be a lot easier to source for general use.

However, for the shop I need more chemical resistance (nitrile=synthetic rubber) for the grease and brake clean, parts washing fluid, oils, and other hazards.


Also, that's why they are thicker than normal medical gloves.

Normal medical nitrile is probably 2-3 mil and the mechanics need 6-8 mil depending on preference.

It seems that while I was in quarantine all of the XL nitrile stuff was shut down or spoken for by homeland security.  And they grabbed the thick ones also because "whatever it takes".

When I was on Amazon.com today all of the nitrile gloves were on some sort of special hold for medical use only.

In the drop-down box below the color selector and above the bullet points.


Thank you!

Thank you. I feel a little dim now, but I appreciate you pointing that out.
